2014 Honda CR-V is now available for sale in the United States at a starting price of $22,945. Touted as one of the most functional and enjoyable compact sports utility vehicle in America, the 2014 Honda CR-V is able to deliver outstanding fuel efficiency and car-like interior comfort. The 2014 Honda CR-V also features a number of standard features.

The base CR-V LX is remarkably well-equipment, as it features as standard one-pull fold-flat rear seats, cruise control, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and air conditioning. It also features a rearview camera, a 160-watt 4-speaker audio system with Pandora interface.

CR-V EX, considered as the most popular trim, boasts of more premium features like a power moon-roof, an upgraded 6-speaker audio system and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Honda CR-V EX-L carries the same features as the CR-V EX, with the addition of a leather-trimmed interior, a 328-watt 7-speaker audio system with XM Radio3 and others.

CR-V EX-L could also be availed with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System4 with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic, or a DVD Rear Entertainment System5. Real Time AWD (all-wheel drive) is available on all CR-V models, which are powered by a 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that provides 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft. of torque (SAE net).

The engine is mated to a standard five-speed automatic gearbox.  Real Time AWD with the Intelligent Control System binds available traction in low-grip driving conditions.

2014 Honda CR-V has an EPA fuel economy rating of 23/31/26 mpg city/highway/combined for the front-wheel-drive variant and 22/30/25 mpg city/highway/combined for the AWD model. The Honda CR-V received a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a 2013 Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The previous generation of the Honda CR-V was considered as a huge success, being the best-selling sports utility vehicle from 2007 to 2010. Its success was thanks to its size, proportion as well as refined styling features like its multi-reflector halogen headlights and long full-body taillights. Moreover, the previous CR-V featured an exterior that exudes both ruggedness and sophistication.

Ushering in a new generation, the 2012 Honda CR-V boasts of a more aggressive yet more aerodynamic design, as defined by its deeply sculpted bodylines and its bolder front fascia.

Its front bumper features flowing lines underscored by a horizontal three-bar grille as flanked by multi-reflector headlights. Its lower bumper was designed to wrap upward so as to tell the world of its SUV attributes. Likewise, the lower front bumper of the new CR-V has been integrated seamlessly with the front fascia, thereby helping enhance the SUV’s aerodynamics.

Although the 2012 CR-V still features the SUV’s signature vertical rear brake lights, these elements now feature a three-dimensional styling that doesn’t just boost its design but also aid in the area of aerodynamics. Meanwhile, the dynamic presence and capability of the third-generation CR-V are conveyed by its bold fender flares and large wheels.

Honda has aimed for the new CR-V to dominate its class in terms of aerodynamic efficiency. This was achieved by implementing a number of design elements that could help improve its aerodynamic efficiency. For instance, the SUV’s longer roofline and integrated rear spoiler have resulted to lower coefficient of drag.

Body
The CR-V's highly rigid unit-body is designed to contribute to high fuel efficiency and vehicle safety while enhancing interior quietness. All CR-V models feature an exterior Expanded-View Driver's Mirror that adds an additional 5.5 degrees of visibility at the outer edge of the mirror's field of view, which can assist the driver in detecting other vehicles or road conditions that they might not otherwise see in a conventional mirror.

Versatile Interior
There is plenty of space to stretch out in the CR-V’s roomy 5-passenger interior, and there's also abundant storage, including a large center console. When it comes to utility, the innovative Easy Fold-Down 60/40 Split Rear Seatback can be quickly folded using release levers located near the tailgate opening or via a pull-strap accessible from each rear door.

The CR-V features sophisticated instrumentation that includes a standard full-color "intelligent" Multi-Information Display (i-MID) that offers a range of customizable features via fingertip controls on the steering wheel. A multi-angle rearview camera, standard on all models, provides a choice of three different views on the i-MID or optional navigation screen.

Comprehensive Safety
As standard equipment, every CR-V incorporates a VSA® electronic stability control system; ABS with Brake Assist; driver and front-passenger airbags; side-curtain airbags with roll-over sensor; front-side airbags with a passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); and a front seat design that can help reduce the severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision. An Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure helps make the CR-V highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal crash.

Powertrain
All CR-V models are powered by a 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft. of torque (SAE net), paired with a standard 5-speed automatic transmission.

Responsive Chassis
With its front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link fully independent suspension, the CR-V chassis is designed to maximize driving enjoyment, passenger comfort and confidence. All CR-V models feature Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) that works with the standard VSA and Electric Power Steering to detect instability in slippery road conditions and automatically initiate steering-wheel inputs that prompt the driver to steer in the correct direction.

Manufacturing
The CR-V is sold in more than 160 countries throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. In the U.S., CR-Vs are manufactured at the Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio from domestic and globally sourced parts.
