2015 Honda CR-V - From Adventurer to Family Vehicle

Published on January 21 2015

''For 2015, Honda has put an emphasis on the “utility”, from sport utility vehicle.''

One of America’s best-selling SUVs underwent a major personality change in the last few years. The Honda CR-V dropped its rear tire carrier and adventurous persona to take on a whole different one: the family, safety-first utility vehicle. 

If some mid-cycle refresh can sometimes go unnoticed, Honda made sure that their remodelling of the CR-V would not. The restyled SUV has been given a modernized front grille with more dynamic headlights. A touch of chrome has been added to the rear portion to give the vehicle a more sophisticated feel. Also available on the top category trim is a new set of 18-inch wheels. 

For 2015, Honda has put an emphasis on the “utility”, from sport utility vehicle. The redesigned CR-V is slightly bigger than its predecessor and its interior has undergone significant changes. The center console has taken a trip back to the drawing board and this time around, everyone agreed to integrate an armrest with a storage compartment (rather than the usual folding armrest). If cargo volume remains the same, with 1,054L, and 2,007L with the rear seats down, it’s access has been made easier thanks to a power tailgate, available on the Touring version. 

Of course, a Honda wouldn’t be a Honda without its fair share of active and passive safety features. Features such as: hill start assist, tire pressure monitoring, multi angle rearview camera, Honda Lane Watch, that uses a camera located on the right side view mirror to film a live feed of the right hand side blind spot onto the center console touchscreen, and HondaLink Assist, Honda’s version of OnStar that uses the connected mobile device to contact the emergency services in case of an airbag deployment, come standard on most trims. To get the best safety equipment, you can opt for the top-of-category Touring trim. It comes with the Honda Sensing Suite, which includes technologies such as Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptative Cruise Control and much more. 

This year, the new intermediary trim SE has been added to the family to offer more pricing and equipment options. All and all, there are now five trim levels of the CR-V. All five offer one powertrain option: the 4 cylinder, 2.4L direct injection engine, teamed with a CVT. The entry-level trim comes with a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive layout, whereas the rest of the lineup comes automatically with all-wheel drive. Combined fuel consumption will vary between 7.8L/100km on the front-wheel drive LX to 8.3L/100km with the all-wheel drive. 

Named 2015 Sport Utility of the Year by Motor Trend, the 2015 Honda CR-V is ready to welcome and accommodate the whole family for your longest and shortest trips. Come and put its utility to the test at Brockville Honda.
