Emme Hall of TheFastLaneCar recently dished about the all-new 2015 Honda CR-V Touring with AWD. Her fave features? The CR-V’s reliability, fuel efficiency, safety, utility and precise, on-point turns, all of which played a part in the vehicle earning TFLCar’s glowing “Buy It” rating.
The CR-V’s biggest draw may be its fuel efficiency. According to Hall, you can expect to get 26 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg combined. “Even at higher speeds, the CVT keeps those rpms low,” she wrote in the review. “At 55mph the engine runs at 1500 rpm, and at 65 mph it runs at 1800 rpm. Sport mode bumps things up a little bit. 55 mph holds the engine at 2900 rpm, 65 mph at 3100 rpm.”
For those looking for a comfortable ride, the CR-V does not disappoint. The Touring model features heated front seats (a must-have for winter), a leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather-trimmed seats. You’ll also stay connected with Bluetooth, iPod connectivity and other high-tech features like a push button start, power sunroof and a 7-inch touchscreen.
And of course, in true Honda fashion, owners of the CR-V can feel free to stretch out in the vehicle’s roomy interior. A power liftgate produces 23.2 cubic feet of space, and two levers that fold the rear seats down can increase that space to 70.9 cubic feet.
The CR-V has a ton of other great features that are outlined in the TFLCar review. Check out more details here. And of course, if you’d like to come in for a test drive, feel free to drop by Frank Ancona Honda to get behind the wheel.
