CR-V II CDTi (06-56reg) is a fantastic family car.
Done 50k in last 3 yrs as our 2nd car - 40mpg mixed driving, good turn-of-pace and with Michelin Latitudes (Hello Costco - set of 4 was £300 during one of their 6-monthly promotions) at each corner it actually handles well in dry and wet with less roll than the Bridgestones it came with.
I used to mock families driving about in similar vehicles, but they are much more convenient than regular estates for putting single/double buggies in the back, and for getting junior(s) into their seats without slipping a disc.
Also, the part-time 4wd actually works tremendously well in the recent (and current!) snow.
Not as ugly as the current car, but still a good drive and good value for money in my opinion.
If I hadn't looked at one while sniffing about Legacies and Accords, I'd still be none the wiser.
