Never mind about the CX-5, which has the littlest boot in its group – 442 liters.
The CR-V's boot floor is additionally the most reduced and has the greatest opening, which implies that it's the simplest to stack and empty load.

Ride comfort is normal, and this is one region where it needs to respect the Proton X70.
Its inside is super-reasonable however it's not the most delightful or generally costly. That honor goes to the Mazda CX-5.
Another in addition to point for the CR-V are its Android Auto/Apple CarPlay similarity. In our aspect of the world, Google Maps/Waze and Google Assistant voice order bodes well than Hi Proton and its China-applications driven programming.
Its Honda Sensing ADAS suite is likewise more complete than those offered by different opponents. Among its opponents, just the CR-V accompanies versatile voyage control that works in stop-go traffic (Honda calls it Low Speed Follow). It likewise includes Lane Keeping Assist (perceptible admonition just for X70).
