Here are the latest news, events or test drives that Bathurst Honda would like to share.
Even after noticing the exterior improvements, it is in its interior where the most remarkable changes were made. First, the standard equipment is truly excellent with its backing camera with multiple angles, multifunction computer, Bluetooth technology and heated seats. All this on top of voice recognition, that allows to dictate text messages, combined with a function that reads incoming text messages, which allows to stay focused and enjoy the natural wonders of New Brunswick. Honda also refined the seats of the CR-V. They have been modified for more comfort and can easily accommodate five adult passengers. Besides seat comfort, engineers emphasized convenience in the back seats. Indeed, this divided bench folds flat and folding it is, as it can be manipulated by tabs at the front of the seat or by a handle in the trunk, easy as pie.
In the cargo area, the CR-V makes loading and unloading goods easy with its ride height lower by a few millimeters. The cargo volume is also increased thanks to its rear seat and thanks also to the new rear suspension. The enhanced loading capability makes it ideal for the whole family’s luggage during a long ride along the River Valley Scenic Drive.
The engine is still the famous four-cylinder 2.4-liter i-VTEC, slightly improved, which produces some additional horsepower (now 185). One can also find the new Eco Assist mode that automatically calibrates the throttle, transmission and air conditioning. This technology allows for a reduction in fuel consumption of about 10%. The vehicle also benefits from Hill Start Assist, also promoting lower consumption. The 2012 CR-V’s new Motion-Adaptive Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS), combined with an improved suspension, is more accurate and responsive. This most reliable and efficient SUV offers an exciting ride without compromising on an impressive list of safety features.
In summary, the 2012 Honda CR-V is more streamlined, versatile and elegant while retaining its efficiency and improved reputation. It is not surprising that it quickly became one of the most popular SUV in North America.
