If the CR-V was on the runway, it would steal the show. And not just because of its bold, aggressive looks. Or its beefed-up athletic stance. Or even the LED headlights with auto-on/off that ensure it is seen in the best light. There’s actually a lot of substance to back up the arresting looks of the 2018 CR-V. Thoughtful touches like an one-touch panoramic moonroof with tilt feature. Available roof rails for more packing versatility. Attractive available 18″ aluminum-alloy wheels to ensure you’re outfitted from top to bottom. And a real inner power, thanks to the powerful turbo engine. So many people are out there searching for the total package. And with the 2018 CR-V, they can actually get it.
HONDA SENSING SAFETY SUITE – The CR-V’s suite of standard driver-assist and safety features includes such vital accident-avoidance systems as collision-mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane-keeping assist.
INTERIOR SPACE – Although the latest CR-V isn’t all that much bigger than the generation it replaced, interior space is noticeably improved. With 40 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, the CR-V trumps the Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Tucson. Rear legroom is equally impressive at a whopping 40.4 inches.
The CR-V’s 1.5L turbocharged engine delivers better low-end torque for quicker passing and merging maneuvers, while improving fuel economy by a few mpg. The turbo delivers a smooth, linear performance that belies its diminutive displacement, with no lag or sudden rush of power when you hammer the accelerator. It is mated to one of the best CVT automatics in the industry, one that even simulates traditional gear changes when pressed hard.
As noted, the 2018 CR-V’s 2-row, 5-passenger interior space has only improved — an impressive feat given that the previous generation was already among the most spacious in its class. In addition to its growth, this Honda SUV’s space is easier to utilize. The 60/40-split rear seats fold with a simple pull of a lever, and the rear cargo area has a 2-tier setup in which the floor can be flat or set lower to keep objects secure. EX and above models have a pair of useful rear USB ports to keep mobile devices juiced. Up front is the CR-V’s familiar and enviable seating position that is comfortable and provides a good view out.
Canadian love their Hondas and a test drive in the 2018 CR-V may tell you why.
The 2018 CR-V blends practicality with an inner desire for pure driving bliss. The result is a showstopping package of form and function.
