Two extra tidbits on this trim: rear privacy glass and retractable cargo cover.

EX-L: It seems hard to add onto the EX, but the EX-L manages to do it. This trim adds extras, like roof rails, heated side mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Upholstery is leather and it gains an extra audio speaker, totaling seven; it is also equipped with satellite radio.

Touring: The Touring marks the top of the line for the 2015 CR-V. Somehow Honda managed to pack even more into this fully-loaded SUV. It adds upscale features, like projector beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, driver-seat memory settings, and power liftgate. Safety is given a nice boost with a forward-collision mitigation system and lane-departure warning system. There is also a navigation system so you’ll never get lost, plus HD radio.

Safety: Honda’s are known for good safety scores and reliable equipment - and the 2015 CR-V is no exception.
