The annual Which? Car Survey* has named the Honda CR-V 2.2 i-DTEC the UK’s most reliable 4×4/SUV up to three years old; with zero reported breakdowns, average annual repair costs of just £10 and an overall reliability score of 98.5% over a twelve month period.
Furthermore the CR-V shone through with 0.14 faults reported, compared to 0.88 for the worst performing in its category; and 0.11 days off the road, with the worst performing recording an average 1.09 days.

Based on feedback from more than 49,000 owners reporting on some 58,000 cars over a twelve month period, a number of factors are considered to give each vehicle tested an overall reliability score. The survey is carried out online, open to both Which? members and the general public.

Leon Brannan, head of cars for Honda (UK) commented: “It’s fantastic to see Honda’s excellent reputation for reliability recognised yet again, particularly from a name as respected and trusted as Which? It’s also really useful to get feedback from customers living with their Hondas day in, day out, as this gives us insight which we can use to continually maintain our high levels of service.”

This latest Which? Car Survey results further underline Honda’s enviable reputation for reliability, endorsed with a host of independent plaudits over the last decade. In 2013 Honda topped the What Car and Warranty Direct Reliability Survey for an incredible eighth successive year.

The ever-popular Honda CR-V combines the refinement, comfort and drive of a saloon car with the versatility and practicality of an SUV. The newest addition to the CR-V line-up, the 1.6 i-DTEC, has the potential to cover up to 800 miles on a single tank of fuel. In addition, with CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km, the CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC qualifies for zero road tax for the first year and as low as £30 annual road tax thereafter.

As part of Honda’s current summer campaign customers can pick up a Honda CR-V 2.2 i-DTEC Black or White Edition for a monthly payment of just £349, with a £500 deposit contribution. Additionally with the option of a comprehensive care package offering five years’ warranty, servicing and roadside assistance for a one-off payment of £555, CR-V owners can rest assured that their major running costs are covered for the next five years, with potential savings of up to £1,290.
