With cumulative global sales of 9,0-million units in more than 150 countries, the fourth-generation Honda CR-V is the world’s best-selling SUV (JATO CY2013-2016).

Making its South African debut this month, the all-new, fifth-generation CR-V is set to extend that success even further. This latest version is the most advanced, most spacious and most sophisticated iteration of the popular compact SUV to date.

From a local perspective, it builds on a successful track record stretching back over more than 20 years, when the CR-V pioneered the compact SUV sector in South Africa.
