    I have just been on holiday in my 2008 CR-V 2.0. It has done really well and very comfortable let to drive. Whilst away, I parked next to a 2011 CR-V. It seems to sit about 6 inches higher than mine. I say that because the top of my wingmirror seemed level with the bottom of his. I thought it was strange seeing as both cars were the same shape albeit 3 years different in age. I checked what tyre size he had and they were the same as mine. Does anyone know if Honda increased the ride height of the CR-V between 2008 and 2011?

    I noticed this with my 07 2.0 petrol, the CR-V I was comparing it to was a diesel version so I thought maybe the diesel versions sit higher, stronger springs or something maybe

    I have a 2013 CR-V. It is higher but I think you have a higher ground clearance than mine, Not sure about 3rd Generation differences though
