Honda CR-V's popularity is undeniable, and it can be witnessed whether one is on the road observing cars or whether one takes a look at the sales figures in the busy compact sport utility vehicle segment. The Honda CR-V makes a strong appearance in either case, and the number of customers who trust the compact Honda SUV continues to grow.
If you are looking for a new vehicle, no matter the price range or model, the popularity of a car compared to its closest rivals is always a consideration. After all, this popularity is somehow a scale that assesses customer appreciation for a specific model. And if this is the case, then the 2014 Honda CR-V starts the year with a step ahead of its closest competitors.
But, beyond this reality, there are factors that make a vehicle stand out from its rivals which should be considered. Buyers who look at the category of compact sport utility vehicle have specific requirements ensuring that only an SUV can meet their expectations. More specifically, customers are looking for a larger load capacity, a large interior space, a robust behaviour that does not come at the expense of fuel consumption, and enhanced safety. The 2014 CR-V gets more than a passing grade for each of these elements.
The 2014 Honda CR-V is powered by a four-cylinder 2.4-liter engine developing 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque. At the moment, there is no V6 engine in the catalog because, let's be practical here, these hungrier engines are less and less popular with customers. Anyway, the four-cylinder CR-V engine offers impressive performances and reassuring pickups while having an interesting fuel consumption of 8.1 liters per 100 kilometers with AWD and 7.8 liters per 100 kilometers on the front wheel drive models.
Inside, the 2014 CR-V has an elegant and modern dashboard that also proves easy to use. In addition, storage spaces are everywhere and ideal for a family. But it is at the rear that the Honda CR-V really stands out with its 1054 liters of cargo space. If you fold the back seat, that space then climbs to 2007 liters. In short, it's huge. And better than most comparable compact SUVs.
On the road, the Honda CR-V's handling is comfortable and the ride is quiet. We appreciate these features daily, yes, but also when it is time to travel hundreds of kilometers.
Spacious and comfortable, the 2014 Honda CR-V is a compact SUV designed for its target customers. This explains its amazing success. Come try it today at Bathurst Honda!
