There are many reasons to love a full-size SUV, from passenger and cargo space to good versatility and increased safety. But what about compact SUVs? While full-size SUVs are great, those compact in size also pack quite a punch themselves. They also provide good cargo space, versatility and safety. And some even offer up to seven passenger seating. One compact SUV that features all of these qualities, plus even more, is the 2016 Honda CR-V. Here’s a look at what you’ll get with this must-have ride.
Everyday Usability: One of the top qualities of the 2016 CR-V is its everyday usability. This is shown via comfort and space. It features wide doors, which allows for easy maneuvers in and out. There is also good head and legroom for all passengers - front and back. The word ôcompact may make you question the actual amount of space in the CR-V, but don’t let the word fool you. Cargo space in the Cr-V is actually a vast 37.2 cubic feet. This measurement allows for most anything you might want to stick in the back, whether it’s groceries or bags for out-of-town travels. Rear seats in the CR-V also fold down via trunk-mounted levers, and when used, cargo capacity almost doubles.
Solid Safety: There’s a lot to note about the 2016 CR-V and all it has to offer in terms of safety equipment and features - a total list that’s quite lengthy. All models of the 2016 CR-V come with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and rear view camera. What’s most impressive is the safety feature list. Depending on trim level, the CR-V will come equipped with Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system, which boasts its own camera with seven-inch touchscreen and displays passenger-seat blind-spot activity. The CR-V’s top Touring trim features even more with a lane-departure warning system and forward-collision and mitigation system that can alert the driver when vehicles and pedestrians are near. It can also apply automatic braking intervention in order to reduce the severity of a crash. Stopping gear is also excellent in the 2016 CR-V, so you won’t have to worry about that. In stop testing, the Cr-V came to a stop from 60 mph in just 119 feet - a shorter-than-average distance for its class.
Fully-Loaded Trims: The 2016 CR-V is available in five trim levels: LX, SE, EX, EX-L and Touring. And you won’t be disappointed by any of them. All are filled with full-power accessories, plenty of high-tech features and loads more.
The EX and EX-L are definitely two trims worth checking out. The EX features everything from automatic headlights, sunroof and keyless entry and ignition to heated front seats and six-speaker sound system. The EX-L offers all of this content, but it may intrigue you a bit more with further upscale items. It adds heated side mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control and leather upholstery. Technology has more upgrades, too, with a seven-speaker sound system and satellite radio.
