Major changes to the new CR-V for 2015 include the distinctive styling and direct-injected 2.4-liter engine with CVT. There are significant content upgrades, improved occupant protection and innovative new safety features. We highly recommend the new Touring trim, which includes numerous options and represents extraordinary value for the money.

About Honda CR-V

If ever there was an overcrowded field in play, it belongs to the compact SUV. The 2016 Honda CR-V is but one of many players here, doing battle with such stalwart competitors as the Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape and Chevrolet Equinox, as well as newer competitors such as the Hyundai Tucson and Jeep Cherokee. While each has its own merits, Honda's 2016 CR-V seems to excel in every area that means the most to compact-crossover SUV consumers. Detractors will rightly point out that, unlike the Subaru Forester, the CR-V can't really go off-road, and that cutting-edge safety features are only offered on the most expensive trims. But consumers don't seem to mind these slights, and record sales numbers year after year appear to confirm it.

"This is a very comfortable ride, with great acceleration. It hugs the road well and does great on turns. I like the size, roomy on the inside, but much smaller than my last car, a Toyota Sienna minivan. There is good leg room, comfortable arm rest, and lots of small storage nooks in the doors. I have been very disappointed in the seat fabric, which stained the first month I got the car. (I had my previous car for 12 years with no damage to the upholstery.) Also, I have been disappointed in the milage. I drive a combination of city/highway daily and was hoping to get the stated 25 mpg. Wrong! I generally get 22 mpg. Recently I changed the gasoline from regular to mid-grade and am now getting 24 mpg. Freeway driving (a road trip) I got 28 mpg, although it might get better milage if I could ever find a highway without major repairs in progress and bumper to bumper traffic. The last disappointment has been the sandpaper feel of the steering wheel. There were no options on this unless you upgrade to the leather seats, which I didn't want. I'll have to get a leather steering wheel cover for the feel I want. And, of course, the act of buying the car from the dealer was a terrible experience. Overall, I'm satisfied with my car's performance."

Pros: "Quality and handling"

Cons: "Nav, and lack of no turbo 4 nor V6 option"

"We test drove a lot of vehicles (Hyundai, Kia, Toyota, Audi, BMW, Acura…all compact SUV's) before we test drove the CRV (last vehicle driven), and I can tell you that for the money (excluding the luxury brands I drove…in that category, the Q5 was the best overall) it was the best overall vehicle! From quality to handling, none can beat it. The handling was surprisingly good. I come from driving German engineered coupes, and I had no idea what to expect when I drove the crossovers besides lack of soul. Some were mushy and free of any feedback like the Edge and MDX, some were too stiff for what the vehicle was manufactured for. The CRV did not have the best looking interior, but it did feel like a $30K interior unlike it's other competitors that were over $30K and didn't feel like it. The quality of the interior is very good (nice leather and plastic inside). The best thing about the interior is how roomy it is. For such a "small" vehicle, it was very roomy inside. I had two friends that are 6'2" in the back with my seat all the way back and they still had room to move their legs. I love the split seat fold downs with the one stop shop lever pull. The only gripe I have about the interior is the very outdated looking/feeling NAV. Do not like the NAV. drive/handling was excellent compared to it's competitors (definitely needs either a turbo or a V6 option. C'MON HONDA get on that boat already! Compared to it's other 4 cylinder competitors, it was the best. The ride was smooth, yet car like and lots of feedback from the road (a very good thing in which you actually enjoy driving the CRV). The engine is smooth as well. I know the exterior is a little "controversial"; however, I love it. It's got nice lines to the sheet metal and is not trying to overdo anything nor does it look overpowering to the eyes. I think it's conservative, yet modern. I think the hardcore CRV owners that are looking to upgrade to the 2012 model will be very happy, while people like me, new to the crossover market and looking to get a compact "SUV" under $30K, will be very happy with the CRV as well and will find it hard to get the same quality/handling/reliability under $30K from other vehicles."

Pros: "Easy to Steer, Comfortable Leather Seats"

Cons: "Parking Brake Location, No Homelink"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The 2012 Honda CRV-L is a completely different car than the 1999 Honda CRV that I traded in. It is roomier, has 40 more horse power (overpowered actually), yet gets better gas mileage due to its lower roof line. I have a bad back and got a back ache just sitting for 5 minutes in the previous year (2011) CRV-L. The leather seats in the 2012 are greatly improved. No back ache even after a long trip. The graphics on the navigation system are outdated but the system works well. The maps are more up to date than Google maps, it has a touch screen, correctly routed me to my destination, love the travel directions on the second screen and the speech recognition works even with moderate road noise (something Garmin can't do). I don't know what the complaint about 5 speed versus 6 speed transmission is about. The 5 speed is a proven reliable transmission. The transmission and engine on the 1999 CRV I traded in were still in perfect running condition. A few of my complaints (and these are more for Honda engineers): 1. The placement of the parking brake could be better. 2. No Homelink. I fixed this by adding a Gentex 41A mirror with homelink and Honda 08V03-TOA-100 accessory kit. The kit comes with excellent installation instructions and is easier to install than it looks. 3. No power lift gate. The local Acura dealer tells me that the RDX actuator won't fit on the CRV. The Acura RDX is an up scale version of the CRV, but costs $10000 more plus $5000 additional for fuel (lower mpg premium gas). This is the reason I rated the CRV so high."
