Sometimes you do not want to play with success. Honda introduced the all-new 2017 CR-V last year, and little change in the 2018 model year.
As we have seen, the 2-row, 5-seat interior of the 2018 Honda CR-V has only improved an impressive feat. In addition to its growth, the space of this Honda SUV is easier to use. The 60/40 split rear seats fold down by simply pulling a lever, and the rear cargo area has a two-level configuration in which the floor can be flat or lowered to protect the objects. EX models and above have a pair of useful rear USB ports to keep mobile devices in memory. At the front, the familiar and enviable sitting position of the CR-V is comfortable and offers good visibility.
Although it’s still a CR-V, the latest version of Honda’s small SUV seems to have reached the gym, with a long, wide position and more aggressive wheel designs. The ground clearance is respectable 7.8 inches for the models with front wheel drive (FWD) and 8.2 inches for the all wheel drive (AWD). This is particularly good news for CR-V owners who will be facing snow and other bad weather conditions. In our eyes, the latest design is exactly what the CR-V needs, which makes it less bulbous at the back, and more substantial and slightly harder in general.
The base LX model of the 2018 Honda CR-V is powered by a 2.4-liter I-4 engine producing 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. It is quoted on a highway / highway of 26/32 mpg according to the EPA. -virons and 25/31 mpg with AWD. The CR-V EX, EX-L and Touring hubcaps are equipped as standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged I-4 engine producing 190 horsepower, 179 lb-ft of power, delivering 28/34 mpg with front wheel drive and 27/33 with AWD. Both engines are backed by a CVT. In Motor Trend trials, the 2017 Honda CR-V AWD Touring reached 60 mph in 7.5 respectable seconds and stopped at 60 mph in an impressive 115 feet.
The 2018 Honda CR-V 2018 crossover SUV has a price (MSRP) that starts at around $ 25,000 for the base LX model.
