The 2014 Honda CR-V definitely stands out in a crowded market of quality crossovers. It’s just not just us who think the 2014 Honda CR-V is something pretty special. Here are some of the awards the 2014 Honda CR-V has racked up:
- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 5-star Overall Vehicle Score
- A 2013 Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
- It has also garnered awards and accolades from Edmunds.com, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com, U.S. News & World Report
“The CR-V model lineup carries over for 2014, starting with the remarkably well-equipped CR-V LX with standard one-pull fold-flat rear seats, cruise control, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, air conditioning, rearview camera, 160-watt 4-speaker audio system with Pandora interface (with compatible smartphones) and more.
“The CR-V EX, the most popular trim, adds premium features including a power moonroof, upgraded 6-speaker audio system and 17-inch alloy wheels. Building from there, the EX-L adds a leather-trimmed interior, a 328-watt 7-speaker audio system with XM Radio and much more. Also available on the CR-V EX-L are a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic, or a DVD Rear Entertainment System. Real Time AWD (all-wheel drive) is available on all models.”
We think the 2014 Honda CR-V deserves every award and more.
“The crossover segment is truly one of the most competitive in the industry,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “All of these awards and others really put the 2014 Honda CR-V at the top of its class.

The brand new Honda Vezel will arrive at dealership lots in the U.S., including Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, and Sims Honda dealership, some time in the second half of 2014.
It won’t be called the Vezel and we are VERY excited about this new vehicle that will be add some fresh blood to the Honda line up. so what can we expect? “While small, Honda asserts that the new model will have “a coupe-like, high-quality personal space for the front seats and minivan-like elbowroom, comfort and functionality for the rear seats” — an interesting split personality.”
It’s based on the popular Honda Fit and will be 9 inches shorter than the Honda CR-V (only 7 inches longer than the Fit). But we all know size isn’t everything and Honda is the master at maximizing interior space and making it feel bigger than it is with creative and quality design.
“We think this new compact crossover will be a big hit,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda. “It will have a coupe-like feel so people who want a crossover but like that more compact feel will really fall in love with this new yet-to-be-name vehicle.”
Look for more about Honda’s new compact crossover (including it’s American name) in the coming months!
This is a great article about the realities of why people really buy crossovers and how the 2014 Honda CR-V exceeds expectations when it comes what people really want from their crossover: to make life easier.
It’s true. People shopping for a crossover aren’t usually really looking for something to haul an oversized boat or looking to go romping in the seriously rugged territory.
No, what people desiring a crossover really want is space, to have seats fold with the simple tug of a lever, great gas mileage, and available all-wheel drive for when the weather gets bad.
“The standout feature in our opinion is the marvelously roomy back seat, which is easily accessed through big back doors that open nearly 90 degrees. That seat also folds with ease. Pull a fabric tether and — viola! — the cushion tumbles, the seat back folds and a flat load floor is created from tailgate to front seats. That same folding ballet can be initiated with a pair of handy pull handles in the cargo bay. Either way, it creates a generous 71 cubic feet of cargo room.”
The Honda CR-V has been the best-selling crossover in the United States for a decade because people, especially families, recognize that it does what we need. It may not be the most stylish or zippiest on the road, but when it comes of functionality and safety (arguably two of the most important things when its transporting your wee ones), the Honda CR-V can’t be beat, including the 2014 Honda CR-V
It is, in fact, “… a marvelous helpmate in simply getting through daily life.”
