The wait is finally over for the new Honda CR-V, America’s best-selling SUV over the last 20 years. Previous models received recognitions that include: One of Kelley Blue Book’s 16 Best Family Cars of 2016, a Five Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and being named 2015 Best Compact SUV for the Money by US News. The fifth-generation Honda comes fully redesigned and reengineered with a bold new styling, premium interior, and the model’s first-ever turbocharged engine.
The more aggressive structure is created by a crisp front-end design mixed with stylized headlights and muscular fenders for a much more masculine looking SUV. The EX trim and higher comes standard with the new turbocharged engine along with a more powerful and fuel-efficient 1.5 liter direct-injected engine.
The interior of the vehicle showcases premium features such as a top-in-class interior space, remote engine start, dual-zone climate controls, rear USB charging ports and more! Cars.com says the vehicle addresses certain issues that held the previous generation back, thus resulting in a more well-rounded model. Their review goes on to say that Honda took on the previous issues directly in their redesign and have done an incredible job in addressing them. If you don’t believe what they have to say about the amazing new CR-V, we encourage you to stop by our dealership and test drive one for yourself while supplies last!

Motor Trend magazine recently named the Honda CR-V as the 2015 sport utility vehicle of the year for 2015. The CR-V was selected for the honor because of its fuel economy, driving dynamics, overall refinement and updated safety features. It was also selected because of its placement as the best selling SUV in America over the past ten years.
The 2015 CR-V has upped its fuel economy from previous models and also now features Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology™ which helps increase the fuel economy as well as horsepower and torque. The new model also features Touring trim, Honda Sensing™ safety and driver assistive technologies.
About the CR-V, Ed Loh, Motor Trend manager-in-chief, said, “The 2015 Honda CR-V impressed our judges with its extensive list of delightful design and thoughtful engineering improvements. Our editors were especially impressed by Honda’s responsive and efficient continuously-variable transmission and sophisticated safety systems – particularly the smart and seamlessly integrated Lane Keeping Assist system. Efficient, practical, and a joy to drive; the 2015 Honda CR-V does virtually everything well.”
The CR-V won the award from Motor Trend after an extensive three-phase testing period from a panel of judges. SUVs were judged in categories such as design advancement, value and engineering excellence. The recognition from Motor Trend further supports the sales success of the Honda CR-V in the past decade.
