About The Honda CR-V

Since its release in 1995, the compact crossover SUV Honda CR-V has been a popular sight in Japan and then North America 2 years later when it was released in that region.

Compact crossover SUVs are now a big business with almost every major auto manufacturer releasing their own, such as the Toyota RAV4 and the Mazda CX-5.

According to the Honda CR-V manual, the name CR-V is apparently supposed to represent a “comfortable runabout vehicle” though this may have just been a fortunate accident.

This car is built in many different locations around the world, including the UK and Japan and then exported to many different markets.

In recent years the company has started producing the CR-V in Wuhan in order to target the Chinese market with the car.

The original model that was released in the 1990s had a very commercial/agricultural feel to it though with each face-lift redesign it has become more of a comfortable family car.

During the early years of production, you were limited to just one engine size (a 2-liter gasoline) mated to a 4 speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission.

As each new generation of the car was released the manufacturer added many different engines to choose from including diesel and hybrid technologies.

The addition of a CVT helped the car gain even better fuel economy if chosen by the customer, instructions on how to operate it are included in the Honda CR-V owner’s manual.

The fifth-generation model brought a lot of new technology to the CR-V including important mobile device connectivity and blind-spot information to improve safety.

When buying the 5th generation model of this car you can choose from one of 5 varied trims that control the level of features found inside of it, including:

  • EX
  • EX-L
  • LX
  • SE
  • Touring
