2019 CR-V Hybrid SR Crystal Red Metallic
Agree 100% for UK drivers. A decent set of winter tyres if you live in areas of regular snowfall or cross climates for occasional snow more than compensates for the majority of quasi 4WD/AWD setups. I nearly swapped my 2WD for a 4WD in the winter of 2010 after being stranded for the third time when I read a report from Top Gear mag recommending winter tyres over 4WD/AWD cars which in the main were fitted with regular road tyres. Changed the tyres over to winter treads and have never fitted regular tyres since. Eventually moved away from winter to cross climate ones but definitely feel they’re the more cost effective and practical solution to tackling UK winters and they perform great for the rest of the year.I knew that the CRV is never going to be a serious off road vehicle for us, and to get it in AWD when it spends all it's time on motorways and normal roads, coupled with the fact we don't really get any extreme snow here (We do get extreme bland weather, like weeks and weeks of overcast drissle) is silly in my opinion. Almost everyone we know who has a x-over like Kia etc, have AWD but in reality it doesn't make all that much of a difference other than worse gas mileage, slower performance, and possible repair complications down the road.
