Honda CR-V Overview

The Honda CR-V is no pavement rookie and has been in the American market since 1997. In the last two decades, this crossover has "pulled a Madonna" in that its reinvented itself with each new generation. The current one - which started during the 2017 model year - is the CR-V's fourth generation, and it has a notably sleeker look than previous ones, but it still has its adventurous charm. In other words, it'll look great pulling up to the newest restaurant in Nashville or parking by the areas many hiking spots.

The 2018 Honda CR-V doesn't just rely on its outward appearance, though, and what makes it exceedingly popular is how well-equipped it is. We'll touch on the trims later, but you'll soon see that you can drive away with a lot of features, even if you buy or lease one from a lower trim level.

First, we'll review the standard equipment and safety features of the Honda CR-V. The we'll dive into the four available trims. Ready? Let's begin!

Standard Features and Safety

The Honda CR-V comes standard with a rearview camera, LED daytime running lights, and Bluetooth capabilities for hands-free calling and music streaming. The base model has a 2.4L engine with 184 horsepower, but the other trims all have a 1.5L turbo engine with 190 horsepower.

With all seats up you get a spacious cargo area of 39.2 cubic feet, which is one of the better options in the class. If you need the entire backrow, you get 75.8 cubic feet. Let's just say you'll be popular if you have friends that need help moving on the weekend.

A big selling point for the CR-V is that all trims, except for the base model, feature the Honda Sensing® package of advanced safety features! These technologies help with crash avoidance and make driving easier. With Honda Sensing® you get the following:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Road Departure Mitigation
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Braking System
  • Forward Collision Warning

With some other brands, you need to pay a premium to get these technologies. We like how Honda makes it easier to stay protected behind the wheel, so whether you're driving in familiar Hendersonville TN, or a few states over visiting a friend from college, you'll have added peace of mind and a vehicle that wants to get to Point B.

Trim Configurations

As we mentioned earlier, the CR-V has four trims to choose from; enough to give you some variety, but not so many that you're overwhelmed with options. At our dealership we aim to carry all options so that all kinds of shoppers can find one they love.

LX: along with the standard features we touched on, the Honda CR-V LX also has Eco Assist, Hill Assist, and there is Pandora app capabilities, so you can listen to your favorite songs. If you're on a budget, or just like your vehicle on the simpler side, this is a solid pick.

EX: starting with the Honda CR-V EX, you get the stronger 1.5L engine and a long list of features that help make this a popular choice. Honda Sensing® is now standard and you also get blind spot monitoring. The headlight situation gets taken up a notch thanks to the auto on/off function, fog lights, and automatic high beams. Inside, we like the heated front seats and the driver's seat can be power-adjusted 12-ways and it gets 4-way lumbar support. Other highlights include a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and a moonroof.

EX-L: with all the EX has to offer, is there much more the Honda CR-V can provide? Of course! The Honda CR-V EX-L adds leather onto the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob, you get a 4-way power option for the passenger seat, and the driver gets a 2-position memory setting, so you don't need to tinker every time someone else uses your car. There's also a power liftgate with a programmable height and the option to add on navigation.

Touring: this Honda CR-V Touring trim is the cherry on top, and if you have the budget for these few extra goodies, we highly suggest taking the plunge. You get a hands-free liftgate, pre-installed roof rails, and navigation which also features traffic alerts so you can avoid congestion.
