The annual survey has named the Honda CRV the most reliable 4x4/SUV up to three years old; with zero reported breakdowns, average annual repair costs of less than €15 and an overall reliability score of 98.5% over a 12-month period.
Based on feedback from more than 49,000 owners reporting on some 58,000 cars over a 12-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.
This latest survey result further underlines Honda's enviable reputation for reliability, endorsed with a host of independent plaudits over the last decade.
The everpopular Honda CRV combines the refinement, comfort and drive of a saloon car with the versatility and practicality of an SUV. The newest edition to the CRV line up, the 1.6 iDTEC, has the potential to cover up to 1,300km on a single tank of fuel. In addition, with CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km, the CRV 1.6 iDTEC qualifies for annual road tax from as low as €200 per year.
