The EX is where the CR-V range stars to come into its own, whilst not straining the budget too badly. The turbocharged engine is the biggest upgrade here, still available with either front or all-wheel drive, but you also get rear privacy glass, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a power tilt-and-slide sunroof. Inside, cloth upholstery remains, but the driver’s seat receives 12-way power adjustment and both front items are heated. You also get dual-zone climate control and a seven-inch touchscreen with full smartphone integration. Notably, Honda Sensing is also equipped, adding forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, and road departure mitigation.
