Third-generation Honda CR-V firm favourite with judges at Auto Express Used Car Awards 2015

The third generation of Honda's popular CR-V has been awarded the title of 'Best Used Compact SUV' in the Auto Express Used Car Awards 2015.

Judges praised the vehicle for its performance in practicality, reliability and agility and it's large available cabin space and load bay and versatile rear seats.

The 2010 2.2 i-CDTI EX was the judges' favourite of the third generation CR-V models, but a number of other specifications are available. These include S, SE, SR and EX models, all of which boast alloy wheels, climate and cruise control and electric windows and heated door mirrors as standard, whilst the SR and range-topping EX feature sat-nav.

The four-wheel-drive vehicles are available with either a 2.2-litre diesel engine or a 2.0-litre petrol engines coupled with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic gearbox.

Managing Director at Honda UK, Philip Crossman, commented: "This is a fantastic result for the Swindon-built third generation CR-V and just backs up what our customers already know; that this is a great car. Coupled with our unrivalled reputation for reliability and the CR-V should be a strong contender for anyone looking at a second hand compact SUV."
