The compact SUV segment has been is one of the most competitive in the industry over the past few years. Honda is determined to stay ahead of the pack with their brand new for 2012 CR-V. The small SUV has been completely redesigned with new sheet metal, a new engine and a more space efficient interior. Now in its fourth generation, the 2012 CR-V is looking to continue Honda's success in the small SUV market.
The CR-V is available in three well equipped trim levels. LX, the most basic trim comes with air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, remote entry, a 160-watt 4-speaker audio system, a multi informational display in the dashboard and electronic power steering. EX trim upgrades the stereo to a 6-speaker system, while adding rear privacy glass, a security system, 17-inch alloy wheels and a 1-touch power moonroof with tilt controls. The top of the line EX-L adds leather seats, dual zone climate control, a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, a 328-watt 7-speaker audio system with XM Radio, heated mirrors and halogen headlights. Options available on the EX-L include a navigation system or a rear seat entertainment system. All versions of the CR-V are available in front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configurations.
The new interior of the CR-V contains several pleasant surprises. The 60/40 folding rear seats are easy to operate and fold down nearly flat against the cargo floor. The floor itself is now lower than last year's model, making loading and unloading the vehicle that much easier. The multi informational display in the dashboard (i-MID) displays multiple camera angles while reversing the CR-V and the vehicle can even link up to compatible cell phones to read aloud text messages over the audio system. Pandora internet radio with iPod connectivity is also a brand-new option on the CR-V.
Honda has a reputation for making some of the best 4-cylinder engines in the world. They've taken advantage of this world class know-how when designing the engine for the CR-V. It's a 2.4L unit that produces 185 horsepower--5 more than last year. An Eco Assist system helps teach good driving habits by indicating to the driver when they are operating the vehicle in a manner conducive to fuel efficiency.
Safety is of the utmost importance, and the CR-V delivers with plenty of standard features. Anti-lock brakes with brake assist and stability control are, of course present as are front and side curtain airbags. The CR-V also features front seats that are designed to help reduce the severity of neck injuries in the event of a rear end collision while the front of the vehicle utilizes an Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure to disperse energy through the vehicle in the event of a head on collision.
