The Honda CR-V compact SUV is currently the best-selling vehicle from the Honda catalog, dethroning the reigning champ of the Honda Civic compact sedan as SUV models have continued to grow more popular. However, the Honda CR-V isn’t just popular compared to other Honda models. It’s one of the most popular SUVs in the entire automotive market!

The first Honda CR-V model was given a limited release in 1995 at select Honda dealership in Japan. It later debuted at the 1996 Chicago Auto Show and was released as the 1997 Honda CR-V shortly after. Initially, only a modest success, the CR-V’s sales numbers and critical accolades grew over time as the brand continued to fine-tune and improve the compact SUV model.

Now, the Honda CR-V is one of the top-rated and best-selling vehicles in its class, often going toe-to-toe against the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4 in the ranking of both critics and everyday drivers.
