2013 Honda CR-V is Easy to Park, Sleek

We love hearing about the different reasons people adore the Honda CR-V, but this was a new one.

In this article at TruckTrend.com, focuses mostly on how wonderfully easy the Honda CR-V is park. Seriously! It seems a bit funny at first, but then I thought about my experiences or concerns about driver a vehicle bigger than a mid-sized sedan and parking is right at the top. Who wants to be embarrassed as they try to squeeze into a tiny, downtown parking spot? Or start panicking as they realize that all the room they THOUGHT they had only to start pulling in and realize the vehicle was making it much tighter than it should be?!

Certainly, we’ve all experienced that anxiety, which is why the focus on ease of parking in this article is relevant. Especially to those moms (and dads) who need a vehicle big enough to transport kids and lots of stuff, but not one so big that it makes it impossible to park unless you park yourself away from everyone else.

“The Honda CR-V tends to be the pick families; moms and dads who want a great car for moving the family around,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Families need a good sized car, but not one that feels like a tank driving down Fairhaven or makes it impossible to shop at Bellis Fair around the holidays. This article actually does a really great job of describing an important aspect of why people love driving (and parking) the Honda CR-V.”

How great is the Honda CR-V’s “parkability?”

“The CR-V seems as if was born to park, squeezing into laughably tight, strip-mall spots; shoring up perfectly square to curbs; and swiftly maneuvering through one of Los Angeles’ massive 10-story, subterranean parking garages. You’d almost swear this was Honda’s top priority when conceptualizing the fourth generation of its small ute.”

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to take the Honda CR-V for a test drive…and park!

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.”

Honda CR-V Rated One of Europe’s Safest Vehicles

While we try to keep things local (or at least national) on the BlogHonda blog, we also like to brag about the accolades given to Honda vehicles overseas. It reminds us that Honda is a globally recognized brand for its excellence, safety, and reliability.

Like this article that tells about how the Honda CR-V has been rated one of the safest vehicles in Europe by Europe’s vehicle safety organization, NCAP. It was just given a 5-star rating! (Five stars is good in anyone’s book, right?!)

The rating was based on the following items:

  • occupant protection
  • child protection
  • pedestrian protection
  • availability of driving aids

One thing that stuck out to me in reviewing these was “pedestrian protection.” Here in the United States, I don’t think we worry too much about way of protecting pedestrians that may get struck by a vehicle. I’d be interested to learn about that and how we can better protect pedestrians in the U.S.

“The new CR-V’s top safety rating reflects Honda’s commitment to overall vehicle safety. Honda’s commitment to safety is embodied by the term ‘Safety for Everyone; safety for drivers, but also safety for passengers, pedestrians and occupants of all vehicles. Honda’s car-to-car crash test facility at the Tochigi R&D plant analyses impacts between models of different sizes and weights and develops solutions to mitigate injuries for both passengers and pedestrians.”

2013 Honda CR-V Commercial Touches Our Hearts

2013 Honda CR-V

Occasionally we write about Honda commercials that are usually entertaining or funny. But this time, we are writing about one that touched our hearts. Why?

Because of grandma.

We LOVE this commercial of a grown grandson driving his grandmother on what appears to be a short road trip to see where grandma grew up, an item on his “leap list.”

We think this tenderhearted commercial speaks to us because we all know how important and special grandmas are. It’s also touching that this young man made it a point to go see where his beloved grandma grew up. And chose the 2013 Honda CR-V to take them to check off an item on his leap list.

Which brings us to this: what is on your leap list? If you had a 2013 Honda CR-V, what are some things you would do that you can’t do with your current vehicle?

Honda CR-V vs Chevy Equinox

There are a lot of quality crossovers in production right now and two of the most popular vehicles are the 2013 Honda CR-V and the Chevy Equinox. This article does a good job of comparing the two and, wouldn’t you know, the Honda CR-V comes out on top.

Both of these vehicles tend to attract families or couples who need to move stuff around (like dogs, camping equipment, etc.), so I’ll start with the most important comparison: storage.

“The center console of the Honda CR-V provides ample storage room that is easily within reach of the driver and front passenger that makes a great place to store maps or anything that may need to be accessed quickly and easily. The Honda crossover also has plenty of space for larger items. First, the rear seats can be folded nearly flat using a one-touch, spring-loaded lever that is easy to get to and operate. When the seats are folded down, the 2013 Honda CR-V has nearly 80 cubic feet of cargo space. The Chevy Equinox comes in with only 63.7 cubic-feet. ”

The next most important thing is probably gas mileage, which is comparable between the two. The CR-V bests the Chevy Equinox by 1 mpg city driving (23 mpg) and its a draw at 30 mpg highway. But when you add in the reliability and dependability of Honda, there’s really no comparison.

“The 2013 Honda CR-V is truly the best in its class,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s a crossover that has as much storage as you could hope for. It’s easy, intuitive, fun to drive, and, well, it’s a great alternative for those families who don’t want to buy a minivan. And most families are on a budget, so you can’t argue with that gas mileage.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealerships today so you can see exactly how big the 2013 Honda CR-V is and how it can do more than just transport kids to and from soccer practice.

2013 Honda Odyssey, 2013 Honda CRV Voted “Best Family Cars for Families” Awards by U.S. News & World Report

Both the Honda CRV and Honda Odyssey have made quite a name for themselves over the past several years, but their reputations and great family cars earned some reinforcement after they both won awards from U.S. News & World Report.

The 2013 Honda CRV and 2013 Honda Odyssey both won awards for “Best Cars for Families.”

The 2013 Honda CRV was named “Best Compact SUV for Families” and the 2013 Honda Odyssey was named “Best Minivan for Families” (like there would be an award for “Best Minivan Not for Families”).

“”If you’re looking for a top safety-rated, fuel efficient, fun-to-drive family vehicle, you can’t really go wrong with a Honda,” said Mike Accavitti, vice president of national marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Both the CR-V and the Odyssey exemplify ‘family friendly’ with top safety ratings, proven Honda quality and loads of smart features to keep the driver and all passengers comfortable and connected.”

As family vehicles, safety is one of the most important factors and we are happy to report that both are Top Safety Picks by the IIHS and earned 5-start overall ratings by the NHTSA (basically, vehicles don’t get any safer than this unless they come with armored plating).

Here’s what they’re saying about the 2013 Honda CRV: “The 2013 Honda CR-V provides 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…Compact on the outside and roomy inside, the CR-V represents an unparalleled balance of size and capability in the entry SUV segment. With its car-like interior comfort, a smooth and quiet ride, plus innovative features, the versatile CR-V is a great fit for families or individuals with an active lifestyle.”

Here’s what they’re saying about the 2013 Honda Odyssey, including it’s awesome gas mileage: “The 2013 Honda Odyssey minivan continues to lead its class in fuel economy and safety ratings, while providing spacious accommodations for up to eight passengers and a refined and engaging driving experience. The Odyssey Touring is rated at a remarkable 28 mpg,2 the highest EPA highway fuel economy rating of any eight-passenger minivan.”

“Really, you can’t go wrong with either of these vehicles,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda dealership in Wenatchee. “The 2013 Honda CRV may be more appropriate if you don’t have a lot of kids (yours or the soccer team) to haul around just because it’s got a functional space perfect for packing camping gear, the dogs, or whatever else you can think of. The Odyssey has always been the top minivan and for good reason. It’s safe, good gas mileage, and Honda really designed the details with families in mind.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership to take the 2013 Honda CRV and 2013 Honda Odyssey for a test drive so you can see why U.S. News & World Report named them the “Best Cars for Families.”

2013 Honda CR-V Video Review

The 2013 Honda CR-V is one of the best-selling crossover SUVs in the industry. Here is a link a couple different video reviews from the Car Connection, including side-by-side comparison of 2013 Honda CR-V and the new Ford Escape. Watch the videos for all the details, but here are the highlights

  • The 2013 Honda CR-V has lots of space and gives best-in-class gas mileage
  • The 2013 Honda CR-V gets 28 city mpg/31 hwy mpg
  • It has more cargo space than the Ford Escape
  • The third row of seats can fold down with a pull of a single lever
  • The dash is attractive and easy to use
  • The 2013 Honda CR-V starts at $22,000

 

While the new Ford Escape might be a little zippier, you sacrifice gas mileage, which is important with gas prices so high in Northwest. It should also be noted that the Ford Escape lacks leg room up front, including for the driver, which is unfortunate because the driver is the one always in the car.

 

According to the Car Connection, the 2013 Honda CR-V is “best for cost-conscious families” who want “value and space.” Check the video and then come to Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealership to take the 2013 Honda CR-V for a test drive!
