    Just wondered if anyone knows if newer CR-V seats will fit in a 1st Generation?
    (ie without having to re-drill the body).
    Looking to improve the comfort.
    Thanks

    You would need the seat rails off the newer CR-V to see if they fitted and are bolt on job, I doubt they will be as the floor pan is quite different across the generations.

    But not impossible to convert if you are handy fabricator.

    I'm ok with some stickytape and a hammer, just wanted to save some time :mechanic:
    This has got me thinking. I could use seats from any Honda in theory, so are there any really comfy models I should look at?

    I think 7th Generation Accord will have the most comfy of the lot. CR-Vs grew over the years so newer seats might be too large for 1st Generation.
