For model year 2017, Honda CR-V was effectively reinvented from the ground up. A longer, wider CR-V with a much improved drive dynamic came on the scene. Sporting a new Earth Dreams ™ 1.5 Liter direct injected, turbocharged gasoline engine option, improved suspension, and a segmented intelligent CVT, (continuous variable transmission) not only is the 5th generation CR-V recognized by the automotive press as the most comfortable, “fun to drive” compact 2-row SUV in America, but the most fuel efficient in its classification. Torque News first experienced the reinvented CR-V in Monterey, California.
2018 Honda CR-V combines family hauling utility with premium comfort and connectivity
Honda CR-V takes on the formidable compact crossover, SUV segment, with a very comprehensive and well defined trim level option packaging lineup. With a beginning MSRP of $24,150, for the entry trim level, 2-wheel drive, 2.4 Liter normally aspirated 4-cylinder, CVT transmission equipped LX, one discovers a far less than ‘stripped’ family conveyance presenting a plethora of standard equipped electronic convenience and safety features. With a stated EPA MPG fuel economy of 26 city/32 highway/28 combined, 2018 Honda CR-V remains the most fuel efficient, non-hybrid 2-row compact SUV in North America. I spend a week in the seat of Honda’s best selling SUV, and found this 2-row a pleasure to drive.
Kids or not, Honda CR-V is a dynamic, and very capable multitask daily driver
I find Honda CR-V when drive compared to Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4, and Mazda CX5, to be the most refined and spacious offering in a groupe of very good 2-row competitors, all bringing their own unique spin to the most popular car segment in America. U.S.News and World Report ranks Honda CR-V #1 in the segment with an overall score of 8.6, edging out Mazda CX-5 by a nose.
