Use http://www.edmunds.com to compare them. Also, eventually the only way to really know what you'd like better is to go to a Honda dealer and tell them up front that your not ready to buy a new car, but you need to sit in some new Hondas to see what you might like. They'll end up letting you test drive two that you like because they want to sell you a car. But no matter what, don't buy the car during the first week that you go around to at least 2 Honda dealers to compare their selling price for the options you want. The Edmunds website will allow you to print out the "manufacturer's invoice" cost on the car with the options you specify. That's the target cost your trying to buy the car at, and you won't pay a dollar more for it! Show it to the dealers and let them compete to sell you the car. Don't let them sell you any extras like seat fabric or paint treatments or undercoating or anything else when you sign the sale document and pick up the car.

the answer is upto you. The two are extremely different class, The civic being a D'segment sedan while the CR'V is a Utility vehicle. Both of them are equally good, and provide equal levels of power, features and comfort. You only have to dcide which one appeals you more.If you want, you can visit the site below:http://www.hondacarindia.com/

My best friend has the 2006 accord with the new 4 cylinder, and It is a pretty impressive car. I feel that it is quite a bit better than either the civic or crv, having more legroom, more power, and looking better.The accord can be several thousand dollars less than a civic. My friend got his for something like $17k, and at the same dealership, the civic was actually more expensive.I would stay away from the crv in any case, I have driven one, and was not impressed. It has little legroom, and the cargo capacity is so small, its almost useless.

get the CRV cause it provides the same performance and comfort as the Civic but is a stronger built car that can take rough roads better and can also be used offroad, also it will be more protective in case of any accident........

Honda is a good pick. You're not exactly comparing apples with apples. Personally I am not attracted to the CRVs, would rather have the Rav4. I currently drive an '06 Civic. Car is beautiful - turned heads when I first got it. It felt good to hear people say "That's the new Civic?!"*If you like being higher off the ground, then go for the CRV. *I don't know how much gas it consumes but that's definetely another factor you should consider. It wouldn't hurt to test drive both cars and do a comparison.

First question to ask yourself is how is this car going to be used?Primarily as a commuter vehicle or as a cargo family hauler.Each of these vehicles has its good points and bad points depending on the use you have for it.If you travel extensively in wet or snowy conditions and safety is a factor consider the CR-V with the real time 4 wd as a safety issue. The CR-V will also get you higher off the ground for visibility and will haul more cargo as well as tow 1500# with a class 1 trailer hitch installed.. The rear seats fold up to create 72 cubic feet of storage and with them in their full upright posiotion you have room for 5 comfotably and still have ample room for the gear that goes with you.The Civic will have a lower profile and a sportier look as well as better gas mileage and a little snappier performance but it is a smaller vehicle with less storage room and a bit tighter interior space. It is also several thousand dollars cheaper than a CR-V and does not have the 4wd option.Bottom line ask yourself what you are looking for in a vehicle and what you expect the vehicle to do for you. Then go to a dealership and drive both vehicles and see which one suits your lifestyle and budget the best.You should have no trouble deciding which one is the best one for you after this research.Just some advice so you do not get caught up in the emotion of the shopping experience --- do not take your checkbook or your credit card with you the first time out and make it clear to the salesperson that you are willing to do business with him personally if he does not push you to buy today but will allow you the time to drive each car and then go home to digest the information you receive to make your decision. Follow up with your salesperson and they will be able to answer any questions you have as well as keep the vultures off of you.

They're completely different vehicles, the CR-V is a larger vehicle that will burn a lot more fuel. If you can do without the AWD and the ride height of the CR-V get the Civic, it will be much more economical to drive, cheaper on gas and cheaper to buy. They're both great cars that will give you years of service.

CRV stands for Civic Recreational Vehicle!!!!! Either vehicle is a good choice. They both are very reliable and have good gas mileage. It should be fairly easy to make the best decision based on what you will use it for. If it is going to be driven only to and from work and shopping, get the civic. If you go fishing, camping, need room for alot of stuff, or have children/ more than 1 passenger get the CRV. Whatever you choose it is a great vehicle and will offer years of dependable transportation! Enjoy!
