2014 Honda CRV

May 16th, 2013 · 0 Comments · Honda

2014 Honda CRV – The CRV returns for the 2013 model year with relatively few changes – a good thing, because it is long on satisfaction already short on dazzle. Smaller than the Pilot SUV and Odyssey minivan but packed with a lot more use than the Civic or even the Accord, CR-V is the culmination of the compact crossover space efficiency and versatility. Cut right to the chase, and to what families want and need, the 2014 Honda CRV what we think is the best rear seat-folding arrangement of any vehicle in this class. And this is combined with an impressive back-seat comfort and good ride comfort in general. Open one of the back doors, and with one arm and a simple pull of a strap, in a very flowing movement of the lower cushion tumbles forward into the footwell, the headrest angles forward, and the rear seatback flips forward, all laid almost behind the front seat, to a completely flat position. Cargo loading is a snap, as the liftover height is only 23.6 inches. And up front, there is a minivan-like choice of cup holders, cubbies, and cargo tray.

The other high point for the 2014 Honda CRV is safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the CR-V five-star overall results, as well as in the frontal impact test. It also earned top “good” scores in all tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and is a Top Safety Pick. A multi-angle rearview camera is available and offers three different views  to help you see obstacles.

This is good. The bad depends on what kind of distinction store you are, because in both exterior styling and performance, the 2014 Honda CRV is good for a family vehicle, but lacks pizazz for those with luxurious tastes or any kind of performance sense. She developed outside last year just a bit with the front and rear styling renovation a bit and the front has more noticeably carlike. Meanwhile, Honda dropped the cargo floor a few inches, and the seats, which opened more space, but the net effect of this inside-out-design movement is that it can appear a little home from outside compared to attractive, slim built entries like the Ford Escape or Kia Sportage. Within the simple, streamlined serve it well, with climate control just below the audio system, and a small, five-inch i-mid trip computer and audio screen just above it all.

Performance is the other side compared to other vehicles in this class. The 2014 Honda CRV not send or handle with very juicy; has a five-speed automatic at a time when the most competitors six-speed, direct injection and Honda skipped here. That said, what you get is smooth and even, just not all that fast. A part of the fault that Honda chose for longer gear ratios for better fuel economy  EPA fuel economy ratings land at 23 mpg city, 31 highway with front-wheel drive or 22/30 with four-wheel drive, making it the highest mileage all-wheel or four-wheel drive driving vehicle in this class. As in some of Honda’s other models, there is a large green “eco” button on the dashboard, more frugal parameters involved for the engine and A/C.
