Hello. My name is Jason and I now have a CR-V ex. 4th Generation I think? It's a 2013 shape Having had both diesel and petrol I may contribute more to that debate now. If any one wants to know comparisons to the the accord and CR-V feel free to ask. I'd say the Accord Tourer would be the better vehicle as long as you were happy enough with the smaller boot and narrower gap between the suspension when the seats are Down. It's better built and a nicer ride (I think this was the tyres as it made the accord super smooth) BUT the CR-V has space and function. I can now have my son's car seat behind the drivers seat allowing a decent width when the 60% seat folds down. My lads seat took up the whole 60% seat in the accord so the CR-V is very usable and practical in comparison. Obviously the manual box is better than auto to drive except when your crawling in traffic. The 5 speed auto box works really well and going to and from work is a lot more relaxing. The stereo isn't as good as the accord so I need to get some speakers and then maybe a better sub. The steering wheel feels like hard plastic in the CR-V but the accord was sift and felt like leather. I'm really loving the keyless entry and start. It makes for a really quick get away. The leather seats seem to take longer to warm up than the half leather i used to have but the do work niceley eventually. The Panaramic roof makes the cabin feel light and airy. Especially noticable if you have the drivers seat at full height. The 2.0 petrol feels really light and agile to drive and feels quite nice on twisty roads in sequential mode. In regular eco driving the car does feel slow but when pushed it does seem to make ground well enough for me. I've bought a load of silver trim covers to bling the interior up a bit. A few items have arrived already so I'll have to do some before and after shots. I'd really like the aero front bumper. Door protector strips and lower door garnish. Id like the ambient kit too but that may be too much. I think a new CR-V accessories group buy thread should be set up as I recon there's a few people that may be interested.
