Honda CR-V — Great Choice for Those on the Go

The Honda CR-V is a compact crossover SUV that originally debuted in 1995. Based on the popular Civic platform, the CR-V has enjoyed immense popularity through the years. The most recent body redesign was launched in 2007, with another slated to debut for the 2015 model year. For 2011, the Honda CR-V saw a few slight changes, with the biggest being the addition of another trim level (SE).

Under the CR-V's hood

Under the hood, you'll find that the CR-V is still powered by Honda's 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine (180 HP). This is matched with a 5-speed automatic transmission on all trim levels. In terms of fuel economy, the 2011 Honda CR-V gets 21 MPG for in-city driving, and 28 MPG for highway trips, making it about average for vehicles within this market segment.

CR-V Trims

Honda offers 5 different trim options for the CR-V, including the base LX model, the new SE model, and the EX, EX-L and the EX-L Navigation models. All trim levels can be equipped as either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It should be noted that this is not an "all-time" all-wheel drive system. Instead, the CR-V operates like a front-wheel drive vehicle until the computer senses that the front wheels are slipping. At that point, the rear wheels will be engaged. It's functionality makes the CR-V ideal for people in geographies with harsh winters, or those who just want the assurance of the latest in Honda's sophisticated all-wheel-drive technology.

CR-V Features

The base LX model comes with some decent perks, including:

  • 17-inch wheels
  • cruise control
  • full power accessories
The high wheel base makes the CR-V handle well in deep snow or rugged terrain. The new SE trim level gives you:
  • 17-inch allow wheels, rather than steel
  • upgraded audio system (6 speakers instead of 4)
  • rear privacy glass
Upgrading to the EX trim level gets you a sunroof, as well as a few other features, including the dual-level cargo area, which is a nice touch for those who are frequently carry cargo, kids, or lots of groceries (carry more watermelons than you can eat!). The EX-L gets a few additional luxuries, including leather upholstery and a better audio system. The main difference between the EX-L and the EX-L Navigation trims is (you guessed it) the navigation system, as well as Bluetooth and a backup camera.

Those familiar with Honda's interior design will not be surprised with the 2011 Honda CR-V. While plastics do play a role, they're understated and of high quality. The double-tiered cargo area is also a nice addition, particularly for those with varying cargo needs. Finally, the CR-V offers 73 cubic feet of rear storage space if you put the rear seats down, which is pretty impressive for its class.
