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.

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.

Conclusion

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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
