How does the CR-V stack up against the competition? It’s among the best resale values in its class.

Honda has consistently taken top honors in its class. Our competitors have tried to gain an edge with a lower up-front price, but have you considered the long-haul and looked at the whole picture? Honda vehicles have an established reputation for being lower maintenance and having better resale value giving us a decisive edge over the competition.

Discover how the Honda CR-V stacks up against its competition. Featuring upscale technology, a roomy interior cabin, ample storage space and versatility, the Honda CR-V is the perfect getaway vehicle to take the family on that beach trip or picnic at the local park. With agile handling and an all-around fun-to-drive vehicle package, the CR-V is the start of an adventure. Honda doesn’t overproduce to satisfy union contracts, nor does it have excessive year-end rebates that act to undermine its value. Think about it. An automotive manufacturer that has gimmicky year-end sales whereby they substantially cut the cost of their vehicle thousands of dollars undermines the resale value of their product. Honda doesn’t do this! Honda doesn’t have to do so! Its products sell!

The 2015 model is the most efficient CR-V yet. An engine upgrade and the latest technology from Honda come together for superb fuel economy ratings. Appeal to your practical side without sacrificing a single bit of fun. According to Yahoo Autos, “the engine, chassis and suspension are dialed in to velvet-smooth satisfaction. Top that with everyday practicality, and it’s one of the highlights of Honda’s lineup.”

The CR-V features only one exclusive powertrain, an in-line 4-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC, which puts out 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft torque. It’s complimented by direct fuel injection and an aluminum alloy engine block and cylinder head. All in all, it’s a great engine for a sport-utility vehicle that achieves the perfect synergy of both performance and economy.

The CR-V has received its most significant mid-model cycle refresh in its history with a new direct-injected Earth Dreams Technology? i-VTEC® engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT), a new suite of Honda Sensing? safety and driver assistive features, significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling, a long list of new standard and available features and a new premium Touring trim.

Safety Comes Standard!

Honda engineers design systems that not only help protect you, but also help you avoid collisions altogether. Honda brings you these advanced safety features on every 2015 CR-V.

  • ACE body structure: The latest generation of our exclusive ACE body structure helps increase occupant protection in frontal crashes by using the latest crash-energy dispersion structure.
  • The Anti-locking Braking System (ABS): ABS uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes to help prevent wheel lookup. This helps the driver retain steering control when braking hard.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution: Electronic brake distribution helps balance braking forces, depending on how much load each wheel is bearing.
  • Rearview Camera: Get a little back-up and parking assistance with our standard rear-view camera with guidelines.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): TPMS alerts the driver when any pressure in any tire becomes significantly low.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA): VSA helps sense oversteer or understeer, and brakes individual wheels and/or reduces enginer power to help you keep on your intended course.

Safety Features Come Standard Safety Features Come Standard

The CR-V Touring is the first vehicle to receive Honda Sensing technologies. This suite of driver-assistive features helps improve the driver’s situational awareness, and in some cases intervenes to help avoid a collision or mitigate its severity.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: The ingenious CMBS system can sense a vehicle in front of the CR-V, sound a warning, tighten the front seat belts and automatically apply brake pressure to help bring the vehicle to a stop. (Touring)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: When begin to depart a detected lane without a turn signal, alerts will flash and sound and the steering wheel will adjust to correct the unintentional lane drifting. (Touring)
  • Honda LANEWATCH: A tiny camera under the passenger mirror activates with your turn signal. A view of the lane with nearly four times more area than the mirror alone appears on your Display Audio screen. (EX and above)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Set a desired speed and interval behind the vehicle detected directly in front of you. When the vehicle ahead changes speed, ACC adapts to maintain the set interval. (Touring)
  • Lane Departure Warning: Alerts sound and flash when an unindicated lane departure is detected by the small camera behind the rearview mirror. (Touring)
