The Honda CR-V returns for the 2014 model year as one of the most fun and functional compact SUVs in America.
With its upscale styling, excellent fuel efficiency and its impressive list of standard convenience features, the 2014 Honda CR-V remains the smartest choice in its segment. The CR-V provides car-like interior comfort, a smooth, quiet ride and innovative features, making it a great fit for families or anyone with an active lifestyle.
The Honda CR-V has earned a host of favorable ratings, including a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 5-star Overall Vehicle Score and a 2013 Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It has also garnered awards and accolades from Edmunds.com, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com, U.S. News & World Report and others. The CR-V finished 2012 as the best-selling SUV in America. The 2014 Honda CR-V is on sale with prices starting at $22,945.
The CR-V model lineup carries over for 2014, starting with the remarkably well-equipped CR-V LX with standard one-pull fold-flat rear seats, cruise control, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, air conditioning, rearview camera, 160-watt 4-speaker audio system with Pandora interface (with compatible smartphones) and more.
The CR-V EX, the most popular trim, adds premium features including a power moonroof, upgraded 6-speaker audio system and 17-inch alloy wheels. Building from there, the EX-L adds a leather-trimmed interior, a 328-watt 7-speaker audio system with XM Radio and much more. Also available on the CR-V EX-L are a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic, or a DVD Rear Entertainment System. Real Time AWD (all-wheel drive) is available on all models.
There is plenty of space to stretch out in the CR-V’s roomy five-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.
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 body structure helps make the CR-V highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal crash.
