Boldly Restyled and Significantly Enhanced 2015 Honda CR-V Gets New Powertrain, Advanced Features and New Premium Touring Trim

America’s bestselling SUV for the past decade1, the CR-V raises the bar for 2015 with a major update that increases powertrain performance, fuel efficiency, safety performance, value and fun

Launching at Honda dealerships nationwide on October 1, 2014, the new 2015 Honda CR-V receives the most significant mid-model cycle refresh in its history, with a new direct-injected Earth Dreams Technology™ i-VTEC® engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT), a new suite of Honda Sensing™ safety and driver assistive features, significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling, a long list of new standard and available features and a new premium Touring trim.

Starting with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $23,3202, the 2015 CR-V has increased EPA fuel economy ratings of 27/34/29 mpg3 (city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive models and 26/33/28 mpg3 for Real Time AWD models, both increasing +4/+3/+3 mpg over 2014 models.

New for the 2015 CR-V:

  • More efficient direct-injected engine with torque up 11 percent
  • New seamless and sporty CVT for enhanced performance and fuel efficiency
  • Bold new exterior design plus chassis, braking system and sound isolation improvements
  • New standard features include a center console armrest, sliding sunvisors and rear console ventilation ducts
  • New available features include a power tailgate, 10-way power and heated driver’s seat with memory, LED daytime running lights, and Display Audio
  • Available Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver assistive features that includes Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)4, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)5, Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS)6, Lane Departure Warning (LDW)7 and Honda LaneWatch™8

The CR-V is notably enhanced with multiple functionality upgrades, including a new configurable center console, new rear console heat/air ventilation ducts, and an available 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio telematics interface. A redesigned high-quality and high-tech interior further increases the CR-V’s sophistication. Exterior design changes, including re-styled front and rear bodywork, mirrors and wheels, lend the CR-V a bolder, sportier appearance with unique Honda style.
For 2015, the CR-V includes a longer list of standard features on all trims. The CR-V EX, for example, adds 7-inch Display Audio, a 10-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, Honda LaneWatch™, Smart Entry/Push-Button Start and LED daytime running lights.

A new top-of-the-line Touring trim includes the first Honda application of two advanced driver-assistive technologies, Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and the first CR-V adoption of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). These systems, plus Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Honda LaneWatch™ are part of the new Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive technologies that, together with other high-end features, such as a power tailgate, bring a new level of sophistication to America’s top-selling SUV1.

These improvements, especially the significant feature upgrades and new line-topping Touring trim, provide customers with more value and choice than ever before. Add in its car-like interior comfort and smooth, quiet ride, and the enhanced and upgraded 2015 Honda CR-V once again sets a new benchmark for the highly competitive compact SUV segment.

Telematics
The 2015 CR-V includes easy-to-read instrumentation and, for the first time on CR-V, Honda’s new 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio telematics interface. Display Audio, standard on EX and above trim levels, allows the user to tap, pinch, and swipe – just like on a smart phone or tablet – to control audio and other telematics features, including the available next-generation HondaLink™9 and the Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System™10. All CR-Vs retain the full-color intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) that offers a range of customizable features via fingertip controls on the steering wheel. The CR-V’s audio and telematics systems offer a high level of connectivity, including a standard Pandora®11 internet interface and SMS text messaging function, Bluetooth®12 HandsFreeLink® phone interface.

Powertrain
The 2015 CR-V’s new Earth Dreams Technology™ 2.4-liter direct-injected DOHC i-VTEC inline 4-cylinder engine produces 181 lb-ft of torque, an 11-percent increase over the previous engine’s 163 lb-ft13 while making the same 185 horsepower14. The new lighter-weight engine is mated to a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) with G-design Shift that provides smooth, seamless ratio changes and contributes to increased EPA fuel economy ratings of 27/34/29 mpg3(city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive models and 26/33/28 mpg3 for the Real Time AWD models.

Chassis
An updated suspension design, and features such as Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)15 and Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) all contribute to the 2015 CR-V’s quality driving experience, which is enhanced further on the EX and above trims with wider front and rear track dimensions due to wider wheels (+0.5 inches). The CR-V uses front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension systems that benefit from tuning changes. The rear multi-link system helps maximize rear seating and cargo space while providing stable and comfortable handling and ride quality. Newly revised shock absorber tuning helps deliver a refined driving feel.

Safety and Driver-Assistive Technology
As with all Honda vehicles, safety is a primary focus, starting with the CR-V’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure that helps make the CR-V highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal collision crash. Overall, the body receives more than 60 changes to improve stiffness and collision performance, and the 2015 CR-V is targeted to achieve top safety ratings, including a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA. Standard safety equipment on all models include Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) electronic stability control system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist, frontal airbags, side-curtain airbags, SmartVent® front-side airbags, and a front seat design that can help reduce the severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision. The newly available Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive features includes Honda LaneWatch™, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). These systems benefit from the adoption of new sensor fusion technology that integrates the capabilities of a windshield-mounted monocular camera and millimeter wave radar to provide enhanced sensing with ability to identify and anticipate multiple collision scenarios, including a pedestrian collision, and initiate warnings and, in some cases, emergency braking.

Warranty
The 2015 Honda CR-V is covered by a comprehensive 3-year/36,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty and a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain limited warranty. Additional benefits of ownership include Honda Roadside Assistance, which provides free 24-hour roadside assistance during the 3-year/36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty term. CR-Vs are manufactured at the Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio using domestic and globally sourced parts.

2015 Honda CR-V Raises Bar on “Standard Feature Value”

While many of the specifications of the 2015 Honda CR-V have not been release quite yet (including price, etc), Honda has unveiled photos and a couple tantalizing details.

According to this article at Torque.com, “Honda has opted to make a handful of measurable cosmetic and tech changes to CR-V…” We also expect improvements in gas mileage and what some considered to be a stiff ride for the previous model.

“The CR-V is one of Honda’s top-selling vehicles and Americas favorite crossovers,” said Dave Pitcher, general sales manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “We definitely expect the 2015 CR-V to continue that domination of the market and keep providing what consumers want. And, like the article said, raise the bar.”

We will find out more details about the latest and greatest model of the Honda CR-V soon! Expect to see the 2015 Honda CR-V at Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, and Apple Valley Honda in a few months!

2015 Honda CR-V Photo

Honda released a photo of the new 2015 Honda CR-V and it looks goooood.

We like the bolder, sleeker look. The 2015 Honda CR-V look less like a vehicle grandma and grandpa would drive and more like  vehicle a new dad would be happy to drive after trading in his coupe for a more family-friendly vehicle.

What do you think? Do you like the look of the new 2015 Honda CR-V?

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!

Honda Accord is #1 in Retails Sales; Four Models Take Best-in-Class Awards

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The Honda Accord was the best-selling car with individual American car buyers in 2013 and was joined by three other Honda models – the Civic, CR-V, and Odyssey – as retail sales leaders in their respective segments in 2013, according to new-vehicle registration data compiled by Polk, which was recently acquired by IHS. The Accord, built in Marysville, Ohio1, also had the No. 1 produced car in America in 2013.

Cumulatively, the Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey posted retail sales of more than 1.11 million units in 2013, each earning the business of more than 300,000 individual American car buyers. Excluding full-size pickups, only one other model across the entire industry posted retail sales of more than 300,000 units in 2013.

“Our focus on retail sales to individual buyers has a direct correlation to the high resale value of Honda products, which is a key factor in the value proposition for our customers,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of automobile sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We want to thank car buyers for making four Honda vehicles America’s top choices, purchased one car at a time.”

Additional highlights from the Polk /IHS Automotive data included:

  • Honda’s 2013 retail sales rose 8.4 percent from year-ago totals to 1,332,576 Honda cars and light trucks
  • Individual sales to retail car buyers made up 98.1 percent of all American Honda sales in 2013, compared to an average of 81.7 percent for all other non-luxury vehicles
  • Accord retail sales in 2013 rose12.2 percent to 360,089
  • In addition to being retail sales leaders, both the Civic and CR-V ranked as the overall best-selling models in their respective segments for the third consecutive year, and both saw retail sales and registrations jump 8.2 percent in 2013
  • The Odyssey also captured an impressive 32.2 percent of the U.S. retail registrations for minivans in 2013, selling nearly 25,000 more vehicles than the nearest competitor in the segment

Honda has been named the Most Trusted Brand by Kelley Blue Book for two consecutive years (2012 and 2013) and the Best Value Brand by Automotive Lease Guide for six years in a row (2008 through 2013), in part due to the consistently high resale value of its products.

Kelley Blue Book Names 2014 Honda CR-V Best SUV Under $25k

KBB.com, the online presence of Kelley Blue Book, has named the 2014 Honda CR-V as the best SUV for less than $25,000, giving the award to the CR-V for the second year in row!

Honda’s New Compact Crossover to Land in U.S. in 2014

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!

2014 Honda CR-V Makes Daily Life Easier

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.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealerships to take the 2014 Honda CR-V out for a test drive with the kids and see exactly how it can help make your daily life a bit easier.

Honda Makes for an Extra-Special Wedding Day for Couple

We have mentioned Honda’s “Start Something Special” campaign and even the commercial about the special role Honda played in the wedding of one lucky couple.

The bride had requested to borrow 3 Honda CR-Vs for the wedding; Honda provided eight. Then flew in family from Ireland for the big day. And Irish step dancers. And the couple’s favorite Irish band. And arranged for $2,000 from Macy’s.

This article (you can watch the commercial at the end of it) stated that the commercial wasn’t moving, that there wasn’t enough tension to make it effective. And that Honda “upstaged” the couple.

We definitely think that is wrong. Sure, it’s not super dramatic and there’s no “tension,” but as we watched it, we were definitely touched and even teared up. A couple’s wedding day is memorable, for sure, but Honda certainly made it more memorable and special.

Take a look at the commercial and tell us what you think. Did it effect you like it did us?
