2011 Honda CR-V Styling

6.0
On Styling

Depending on how you see it, the exterior of the 2011 Honda CR-V is understatedly attractive, plain, or a little weird. The rounded overall shape with a mix of sheetmetal creases and arcs looks well proportioned from some angled but awkward from others.

While Honda hasn't treated the front end of the CR-V with the same garish chrome grille as with the Pilot, Ridgeline, and Element, the CR-V has its own oddities; the contour of the rear window and hatch has always seemed a bit off to some eyes; to yours it could be either graceful or awkwardly jelly-bean-like, so take a walk around.

A little homely on the outside, but conservative, upright, and straightforward on the inside, the 2011 Honda CR-V won't exactly pull in design-savvy shoppers.

The interior of the 2011 Honda CR-V is more tasteful and balanced—though conservative—and it should appeal to most people who don't need flamboyance. The upright instrument panel is a bit too upright and butch-SUV in styling, but it uses some pleasant contrasting materials and bright accents.
