2018 Honda CR-V

Introducing the 2018 Honda CR-V

The 2018 CR-V may just be the perfect SUV for any lifestyle. With such an incredible balance of style, comfort, and capability, it is difficult to argue that there is anything better in its class. 

An Upscale Environment

Honda has designed the CR-V with a commitment to comfort. Inside, there is seating for five with ample room to stretch out, including plenty of legroom - for even the tallest passengers - in the back seats. The seats are nicely bolstered for support and well sculpted for all-day comfort, even on long trips. The interior is adorned with quality materials, soft-touch surfaces, and tasteful accents such as wood and chrome. For the ultimate in luxury, the EX-L and Touring trim CR-Vs come with heated, leather-trimmed seats, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The CR-V has also been designed to reduce road and wind noise to provide you with a quiet ride. No matter if you are driving to work or taking a long road trip with the family, the CR-V's attractive and functional cabin is an excellent choice to meet your needs.

Space and Versatility

The CR-V not only has plenty of space for you and your passengers, it also the largest cargo capacity in its class. The cargo area behind the rear seats provides 39.2 cu. ft. of space. An adjustable floor in the  cargo area can be lowered for taller items or raised to provide a completely flat cargo space when the rear seats are folded down. Items can easily be loaded into the cargo area thanks to a low rear bumper and available power tailgate with programmable height. Touring models feature a Hands-Free Tailgate that opens with a motion of your foot under the rear bumper. 

By simply pulling a lever, the 60/40 rear seats fold flat in one motion, providing you with multiple configurations for seating and cargo. With the rear seats completely folded, you are provided with 75.8 cu. ft. of cargo space for loading large, bulky items. The side doors also open wide to make loading cargo easy or getting children's safety seats in with less hassle. 

From the Driver's Seat

No matter the distance, the CR-V provides you with a well-composed and compliant ride. Its suspension absorbs bumps, potholes, and rough pavement, while instilling plenty of cornering confidence. 

There are two power options for the CR-V; both are paired with an automatic CVT transmission, and are available with all-wheel-drive. LX trim CR-Vs are equipped with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque while getting an estimated 26 city/32 highway/27 combined MPG in 2WD models; AWD models receive an estimated 25 city/31 highway/27 combined MPG.* For EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, power is derived from a 1.5-liter turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 4-cylinder engine that produces 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged engine supplies more potency than the numbers may suggest by providing the power at low RPMs, and gives you smooth linear acceleration throughout the power band. Not only does the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine give you more power, but it is able to do so while providing better fuel economy. 2WD CR-Vs with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine deliver an estimated 28 city/34 highway/30 combined MPG, or 27 city/33 highway/29 combined MPG with AWD.*

Top-Notch Tech

The CR-V has plenty of available features to keep you connected and make your driving experience even better. Every CR-V comes standard with a multi-angle rearview camera, remote entry with a security system, LED Daytime Running Lights, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port. The audio system, Bluetooth features, voice control functions, and cruise control can all be managed by steering wheel controls that are also standard on the CR-V. Other stand-out available features include:
  • Premium Audio System - Play music from your favorite source though a full, rich-sounding 330-watt, 9-speaker audio system with an easy-to-use 7-inch touchscreen display. Connectivity includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, SiriusXM, and HD Radio. 
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition
  • Remote Engine Start - Start your vehicle from the comfort of your home.
  • Smart Entry with push button start - Allows you to unlock and start your vehicle without taking your key out of your pocket or bag.
  • SMS Text Message Function
  • Rain-Sensing windshield wipers
Safety is Key

Honda goes above and beyond to protect you and your passengers. Not only is the CR-V designed to achieve top ratings from NHTSA and IIHS, but it is also available with the latest in Honda's safety technology to help prevent you from being in an accident in the first place. Honda Sensing provides a suite of intelligent driver assistance features and safety systems as extra protection for you and your passengers. These features include:
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System - Provides help with braking the CR-V when an otherwise unavoidable collision with another vehicle is detected in front of you.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System - A small camera that senses road markers to alert you if you are about to leave the road, and it can take action to help prevent you from doing so.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow - Helps to maintain a set following distance on the highway so you don't need to manually adjust your speed if the vehicle ahead of you slows.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System - Adjusts the steering to bring you back into the center of your lane if it detects that you are drifting out of your lane without signaling. 
  • Blind Spot Monitoring System with Cross Traffic Monitor - Detects the presence of vehicles to the side and behind the CR-V using radar. Warning indicators alert you if the system detects a vehicle to help you during lane changes.
  • Cross Traffic Monitor - Sensors detect vehicles approaching from either side when you are backing up and provides an audible chime and arrows in the rearview camera display when vehicles are detected.
