What is it?
Honda's CR-V Sport, a soft-roader with a 140kW/222Nm 2.4-litre petrol engine and four-wheel-drive. It's handsome, easy to live with, and your $48,990 buys a family wagon with heated leather seats, reversing camera and a sunroof.

We like
Very well-thought-out boot. One lever lowers rear seat squab and folds the back for a flat boot floor, expanding the 589 litres to 1146.

We loathe
Thirsty motor. Honda claims 8.7 but my hilly commute exacted 10.4l/100km.
