The 2014 Honda CR-V is a top choice among compact SUVs. The 5-passenger vehicle is comfortable and spacious, and will even accommodate tall passengers in the rear seats. It also offers great versatility and value, as one might expect from a Honda vehicle, as well as all-wheel drive, and good fuel economy.

Honda’s SUV has a starting price of $25,990 MSRP, and with it, consumers can benefit from between 2,873 and 2,949 litres of passenger space (depending on the model). Each occupant is bound to be content with the space available to them, whether they are sitting in front or in back, and rear legroom should not be an issue. As for cargo space, buyers can easily fold the rear seats with a 60/40-split, which allows them to benefit from a total of over 2,000 litres of volume.

There is also a variety of features from which to choose from, and depending on the trim level (LX, EX, EX-L and Touring), owners can select elements like dual-zone automatic climate control with an air-filtration system, a power adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, and leather-trimmed seating surfaces for comfort. For the leather-wrapped steering wheel, consumers can opt for it on either the EX-L or Touring model.

In terms of convenience, Honda’s navigation system with voice recognition and steering wheel-mounted controls is available on the top trim, and a multi-angle rearview camera is standard across the board. As for entertainment, steering wheel-mounted audio controls are standard, and satellite radio, as well as a 328-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with MP3/Windows Mediacapability, and 7 speakers are available.

Features aside, a 2.4-litre, in-line, 4-cylinder engine lies under the hood of the 2014 CR-V, and generates 185 horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque. The only transmission available with the SUV is a 5-speed automatic. From this vehicle, consumers can anticipate precise steering and steady handling. Buyers may also find that Honda’s SUV provides a relatively smooth ride on most surfaces, and cabin quietness is very acceptable.

For increased safety, Canadians may also choose to opt for the automaker’s real time AWD system available on the first two trims, and standard on the top two models. Consumers should also note that Honda’s 2014 CR-V received a 5-start overall rating from the National High Traffic Safety Administration. The vehicle also garnered the top Good score from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for the moderate overlap front crash test, as well as the side impact, rear crash protection, and roof strength tests. 

Finally, regarding fuel economy, owners should be pleased with the ratings: 9.0/6.4 litres per 100 kilometres (city/highway) for the front-wheel drive version, and a combined rating of 8.1 L/100km when equipped with AWD.

The 2014 Honda CR-V is a driver-friendly vehicle in that it provides owners with a comfortable, spacious and versatile interior, with easy-to-find and use controls, lots of available features, and excellent fuel economy ratings. The automaker’s SUV is certainly one to consider, and with available AWD, Canadians can feel more secure when driving the CR-V in winter.
