      We want long range electric cars not this Frankenstein creation. This car goes 3 miles on straight battery? Are you kidding me?

      A straighforward comment. Quoting official consumption figures is no substitute for actual full tank to full tank measured consumption done by you.

      It would seem all new cars are having issues VW have just advised, stop production of the Automatic 1.5 cylinder shut down system until late summer, see T Roc forum, all ranges may be effected Skoda, Seat, Audi Q2/3 big problem, Mazda issued bulletin as well, Its all down to the *** EU emissions problem forcing makers to rush designs and production one thinks.

      what dd you NOT mention the recalls or other snags on vehicle ? hmmm not quite independent review . ANY independent review would have went into the recalls and notice to repairs bulletins . You did not sir . we all know the 1.5L turbo gas is an issue - but no mention.

      1.5 L turbo has terrible gas in Oil contamination . we all know what that means . Honda has been trying to hide … but researched buyers know the gig ! Sounds like Honda is setting themselves for a bad faith lawsuit !

      CRAP! Not worth moving to under powered hybrids or low range EV's, too expensive with too many limitations. I would love to go EV, but lifestyle dictates diesel or petrol, with decent economy.

      +Oxygenic After comparing CR-V to CX-5 in the same day I noticed the high edges of the front bumper and tiny rear window drive me nuts.
      The interior was fine and driving position really comfortable. I was hoping to buy the iMMD, even though it is more expensive and close to Harrier in price.
      Japan has really tight streets, I need to see well in all directions. I am also 170cm in height, that might have something to do with the low front visibility. My wife is shorter so the car needs to offer excellent visibility. Just average is not good enough.
      I do not understand Toyota's choices: Harrier and Land Cruser Prado is limited to certain markets, even though, especially for Harrier, the vehicles sells very well.
      By the time I make my purchase Mazda might have Skyactive-X and hybrid available. I like the hybrids with the air con working while the engine is off. Useful feature when for three months the temp is over 30 deg.
      I miss Tromso so much... :)

      ​+Waldemar Ishibashi Have you actually driven the 2019 CR-V ?
      I tried it recently, and I didn't experience any "visibility" issues at all....
      We don't have the Harrier in Scandinavia, but we do have the RAV4, which is quite nice and to be honest, also a "step up" compared to the CR-V, but it's also a lot more expensive ...

      Waldemar Ishibashi In reply to C Powell

      In Japan for around 7k GBP cheaper... which is still expensive knowing that Toyota Harrier hybrid is cheaper and faster.... and is a "high medium" class. Also visibility is terrible in this CR-V compared to Mazda CX-5. I am so dissapointed as there is long relationship with Honda and my family...

      Key fact 6, for those interested. With this new model, it's no longer built in the UK. Good news for the Canadians. Bad news for the Brits.

      Why Honda designs the hybrid model with such a fugly exhaust pipe? Can't Honda use the exhaust pipe on 1.5T gasoline model for its hybrid model?
