Honda CRV Reviews
and Accolades

The CR-V has been named to's 2014 Top 10 list of Best Resale Value Award winners. According to the editors, "The versatile Honda CR-V matches style, comfort, features and economy with great resale value." has named the 2013 Honda CR-V the Best Five-Passenger SUV You Can Buy (August 2013). After living with the CR-V for a full year, they found that no other car in the segment is as reliably solid across virtually every area.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named the CR-V a "2013 Top Safety Pick." IIHS rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal or poor based on performance in front and side crash tests, a rollover test, and evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. To earn Top Safety Pick for 2013, a vehicle must have good ratings in four Institute tests.


185-hp, 2.4-Liter, 16-Valve, DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder Engine

Meet our most powerful and efficient CR-V engine yet. The 2.4-liter, dual overhead camshaft (DOHC) i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine has 185 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque (SAE net), a 23 city/31 highway mpg rating[1], and a ULEV-2 CARB emissions rating.

Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System?
Available on all CR-V trim levels, the remarkable Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System? offers excellent drivetrain efficiency, decreased noise and vibration, and it only operates in AWD when necessary. When the system senses insufficient traction in the front wheels, it electronically transfers power to the rear wheels. Drivers don't have to do a thing. Plus, the electronic activation reacts quicker than other vehicles' hydraulic systems and requires virtually no maintenance.

MacPherson Strut Front Suspension

Bumps and turns are no match for the CR-V's well-tuned suspension. In fact, you'll notice very little body roll or tire noise around sharp curves.

Hill Start Assist
Stopped on a steep hill? No worries. When the driver's foot moves from the brake pedal to the accelerator, hill start assist will maintain brake-line pressure, giving the driver time to push the accelerator and resume motion.

3-Point Seat Belts at All Seating Positions and Front-Seat Automatic Tensioning Systems
All front and rear seating positions have 3-point seat belts that ride across the lap and chest to help restrain occupants during sudden stops or impact. The front seats feature an automatic tensioning system.

Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
The CR-V is equipped with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS). One or both of these airbags will be deployed only in the event of a sufficient frontal impact. If deployed, these airbags are capable of being inflated at different rates depending on crash severity, seat-belt usage and/or other factors. Frontal airbags are designed to supplement the seatbelts to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries in frontal crashes.

Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)
In the event of a moderate-to-severe side impact, the side airbag inflates to help protect the driver's or front passenger's upper body. The Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) utilizes sensors in the front passenger's seatback to detect the height and seating position of the occupant. If a child or small-statured adult is leaning into the deployment path of the side airbag, sensors deactivate it.

Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
To help reduce the likelihood of head and neck injuries for outboard occupants in side collisions, all CR-V models feature standard side curtain airbags. In the event of a sufficient side impact, this system will activate to help provide protection for both front and rear outboard passengers. The side curtain airbags are also connected to a rollover sensor to help provide protection in a rollover.

Vehicle Stability Assist? (VSA®) with Motion-Adaptive EPS
Vehicle Stability Assist? can brake individual wheels and/or reduce engine power in the event of an oversteer or understeer condition and help the driver regain the intended path. The system also features a traction control function to help prevent wheelspin during acceleration.

Eco Assist?
Eco Assist? helps car and driver work together as never before to improve fuel efficiency. First, when you push the green ECON button, your CR-V will automatically configure its engine and other energy-consuming systems to operate more efficiently. Eco Assist? also features a feedback system that tells you how efficiently you're driving, while you're driving. Instrument-panel lighting changes from white (inefficient) to green (efficient), helping you get more from a gallon of gas.
