Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Honda aims the CR-V squarely at the core of the compact crossover market. As expected, a CR-V promises no sporty behavior. Instead, it conveys a premium feel, carefully blending composed handling skills with refined ride comfort.

Newly retuned, accurate steering responds more quickly than it used to be, requiring less motion of the steering wheel to alter course. Even when rolling briskly along curvy roads, a CR-V feels securely confident.

The CR-V’s suspension effectively subdues the impact of flawed pavement, yielding a soft ride without tossing passengers around on winding roads. Ride/handling balance might even top that of Mazda’s athletic CX-5.

Performance is adequate with the base 2.4-liter engine.

The 1.5-liter turbo is considerably stronger. Turbo acceleration and passing power are helped by torque output that peaks at a relatively low 2,000 rpm. Honda advises that a turbo CR-V can reach 60 mph about 1.5 seconds quicker than a 2.4-liter LX can, though the engine growls harshly when accelerating hard.

Honda’s CVT is not our favorite transmission and it’s perhaps the weakest link in CR-V. It has an initial sluggishness when accelerating at highway speeds. Pushing harder on the throttle to compensate results in more acceleration than intended once the CVT is wound up. It’s an annoyance more than a concern, but it is an annoyance.

Fuel-efficiency scores well. A front-drive LX is EPA-rated at 26/32 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers that estimate to 25/31/27 mpg. A turbo with front-wheel drive is EPA-rated at 28/34 mpg City/Highway, or 30 mpg Combined, while the all-wheel-drive version lops 1 mpg off each figure.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

The CR-V emits an upscale aura and it’s stylish or quirky depending on your point of view. Up front are aerodynamic LEDs, but the front bumper protrudes a bit, almost like it was added on. Upswept rear roof pillars continue a theme that debuted in the prior generation. Taillights sit high, separated by a chrome strip. Badging is oddly positioned, and the tailgate contains a curious bulge.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

While the CR-V’s exterior draws divergent opinions, its conventionally laid-out cabin is more widely acclaimed. For both passengers and cargo, the CR-V makes especially effective use of available space.

Not only can five occupants enjoy roomy comfort, they face upgraded materials all around. The cargo area has gained nearly a foot in length, without cutting back on legroom. Back-seat leg space, in fact, has grown by 2 inches.

Pull a lever, and the adjustable second-row backrests fold totally flat, a convenient feature. A removable panel reveals a concealed, under-floor storage area.

All trim levels except the base LX include a 12-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support. On the down side, the wide center console may cut into the driver’s leg space. The rear seat is wider than before, making space more suitable for a trio of adults.

Well-organized and functional, the dashboard reaches toward luxury in top-level Touring trim. EX and Touring editions rely more on their 7.0-inch touchscreen than on traditional switches or buttons. A new screen coating is said to resist fingerprints, and a volume-control knob has been added.

The navigation system is one of the easiest to use. Inputting an address is as easy as typing it in on a computer. Our navi sometimes dropped the destination when stopping and restarting the car, however, necessitating a stop to re-input.

The Honda CR-V is one of the best of the compact crossover SUVs. Every CR-V qualifies as strong in value, but the EX trim is the best bargain. Even though the base LX lacks modern engine and safety technology, it’s still nicely equipped.
