Endeavor here too..... CR-V is a soft roader, petrol engine etc etc...... SUV's are, IMO, supposed to be Diesel.great bottom-end torque....... And ofcoz the road presence, its HUUUUGE!!
so the Endeavor for me.

My choice will be CRV. Endaevor has the road presence but i feel it is a bit under powered for its weight.

If you want a refined vehicle that can be used for offroading occasionally, go for the CR-V.
The Endeavour is a better looking, larger and tougher vehicle with better offroading capabilities and tremendous presence. It's one of the best vehicles to tackle our horrible roads. It's also cheaper to buy and run.
If I have to spend my money, it will surley be on the Ford.

Been following a couple of CRV's, the rear axle is pretty low set hence the ground clearance is no better than a City. Might as well put a few cushions on my seatr and poke a hole in my oof to get that SUV feeling....or follow Mr Beans route of a chair on the roof and control car using strong !

The ground clearence of the CR-V is 205mm. Honda City is 170.

And i think GC means the distance between the lowest part of the car (apart from the wheels LOL ) and the ground.

205 is good enuf for the CR-V (as it's not made to be an offroader), and off all the Honda test cars i've driven on the Sarjapur ring road (next to the Honda showroom) only the CR-V managed to overcome that huge speed breaker without scraping the bottom.

The Accord, NHC, my Vtec all managed to touch.

Compared to other SUVs it's low no doubt, but not as low as a car, no way.

Took delivery yesterday, process was good. Only one issue, the fog lights, leather upholstory and spare tyre hard shell cover is still in transit from Japan :P so will have to take the car back when it arrives.
Dealer gave some additional mats, prefumes and a key chain as gifts, thats all in discount front, good thing though the manager had informed regarding the model upgrade for manual version and asked us to delay the delivery to get the first mentioned goodies worth around 80 grand
car is ok, as usual engine is NEAT!! rest very unassuming, maybe i still have that lingering aura from the Gypsy days and the Endavour bug :(
detailed report with pics maybe next week if i manage to get time, and yes Ikon should get the Automech pipes installed over the weekend, cant wait to take my baby after the installation for a looooooonggggg ride

hey jaggu
as sahil said
whats the point of buying an SUV if you are going to use it like a car ???
anybody who wants a true SUV goes for the endeavour and wimps who just want a roadcar but with an SUV name get the wimpy CR-V
besides GTO the CR-V can only seat 5 people.
hey Sahil does the endeavour have height adjustable seats ???
because if it does then i can still convince my brother to get it .
he was planning to get an SUV but found the CR-V too small and the endeavour seats too low .
so he is now waiting for the fortuner
