The Honda CR-V is one of Honda’s most popular models, appealing to a wide range of consumer demands. Boasting additional baggage room, ample passenger space, fuel efficiency and smooth handling, it is not difficult to understand why Honda CRV cars never fail to top the top consumer sale charts, year in year out.
If you are thinking about buying a Honda CR-V, you may want to read the following advantages of one of Honda’s biggest success stories.
In 2007, the third generation of Honda CR-V was launched and was considerably more powerful than its predecessors. The third generation possessed 180 horsepower and was available in four different trim levels, the XE, SE, LX and XE-L, all of which provide different assets and luxuries.
The Honda XE-L has often been described as the kind of up-scale vehicle that everyone dreams of owning and driving away one day. With the added luxury of leather seat covers, satellite radio, a sub woofer and a power drive seat which can be adjusted in eight different ways depending on the personal requirements of the driver, the EX-L can certainly be described as representing the height of luxury in a modern vehicle.
All the trim levels of the third generation of Honda CR-V boast a touch screen navigation system, which includes blue tooth and a rear view camera, come in front wheel drive with an option of AWD, and are available in five speed and six speed manual and five speed automatic models.
Top Gear has described Honda’s new CR-V as being an all new Honda, followed by the characteristically sarcastic Top Gear comment, “which is a rare event these days.”
The latest version of this hugely popular soft-roader has, in a notably similar fashion to its predecessors, an amply sized, family-friendly interior. If you are looking for a car to cater for bulky items such as buggies, hordes of shopping, golf equipment or suitcases, then the new CRV with its huge boot space and rear seats that fold effortlessly with one of two handles on either side or by a lever in the boot, then the 2013 CR-V may be the perfect vehicle for you.
In addition to boasting significant space in the boot, this car has plenty of storage compartments. This is a deliberate move on behalf of the manufacturer and is part of Honda’s drive to make the interior of its vehicles function as effortlessly as possible.
It is important to understand that the Honda CRV is not an SUV, but is actually more of a cross between an SUV and the Honda vintage Civic. As delightfully pleasing to the eye, environmentally and family friendly as it may be, the CRV is essentially designed for soft roads and is never going to be a great off-road vehicle. If however, you are, looking for great handling and pleasurable driving, then the new CR-V certainly has all the right hallmarks of a great Honda car.
