Review: Honda CR-V is Fun, Functional

We love the Honda CR-V. Turns out, we aren’t the only ones.

Check out the first paragraph of this review, “The all-new, fourth-generation Honda CR-V debuted late last year with upscale styling, excellent fuel efficiency, and a host of standard convenience features, making it one of the most fun and functional compact SUVs in America. The CR-V returns for 2013 as an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and is distinguished by a NHTSA 5-star Overall Vehicle Score. Along the way, it has also earned awards from Edmunds.com, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com and J.D. Power and Associates.”

Yeah. That pretty much sums it up.

But there’s more.

Here are the highlights:

  • Body: “aggressive and aerodynamic”, lightweight suspension
  • Interior: “The interior of the 2013 Honda CR-V combines a sedan-like driving position with abundant comfort and convenience features, and standout utility and versatility. The CR-V’s “small on the outside, big on the inside” packaging is the key to its appeal. The roomy 5-passenger seating layout provides plenty of space to stretch out, front and rear, and there’s abundant storage, including a large center console.” Also the 60/40 easy fold-down seats for bigger loads.
  • Safety: “The CR-V has been named a TOP SAFETY PICK (the highest rating possible) by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The rating recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes.”
  • Power: “All CR-V models are powered by a 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft. of torque.”
