The 2016 Honda CR-V covers all of the bases, earning the admiration of critics and consumers for its quality, durability, and versatility. This model is also one of the best-reviewed SUVs on the market.
Honda has really emphasized the American family when designing the CR-V. Even under the hood, the SUV strives to please the family driver and the family budget simultaneously. The engine is a 185-horsepower unit that can deliver maximum acceleration even at the lowest revs. To achieve this, it utilizes Honda's exclusive continuously-variable transmission. The taut build, supple suspension, and refined steering combine for a better driving experience.
This crossover emphasizes all of the things that an American family needs for comfort. It is spacious, offers many conveniences, and handles cargo well. High quality materials, dash tech, and amenities combine to please the crowd. While the driver's seat offers a commanding view of the road, back seat passengers are treated to rear vents, reclining chairs, and ample headroom and legroom.
The cargo hold can handle up to 35 cu.ft. Its low load floor makes it simpler to load, and the available power liftgate is an asset for busy parents. Each trim edition works hard to earn its pricetag. The LX cockpit is loaded with dash tech. You'll find push button start and power chairs on the EX. More design elements, such as a dressier trim and leather seats, enhance the EX-L and Touring editions.
Shoppers will appreciate that even the base LX has a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone, Bluetooth streaming audio, a text-messaging assistant, and a large dash screen. Other basics include a USB port and Pandora internet radio. Higher editions upgrade the rearview camera, add another USB port, and offer satellite radio. The top-tier system includes navigation and HD radio.
Offering an exclusive crash avoidance feature, the 2016 CR-V has a real safety advantage. Honda LaneWatch is a camera-based blind spot system that is embedded in the passenger side mirror. It watches for traffic and broadcasts to the dash screen. The driver can make lane changes more safely as a result of the camera's real-time information. Another crash avoidance system is the enhanced lane departure system. This can alert the driver to straighten up in the lines, but if the driver can't do so, the crossover may act independently to alter the car's improper trajectory.
The front collision system and pedestrian alert system watch for dangers that the driver may not see. Then, it warns the driver to brake. In some instances, it can engage automatic braking to reduce the severity of an accident. When you add these systems up, it's like a blanket of protection for your family.
