There are many appealing qualities in a compact SUV. They offer more space than sedans without the bulk of a full-size SUV; most are safer than smaller cars; and let’s be honest, they are pretty darn pleasing to the eyes. The 2016 Honda CR-V offers all of these qualities and brings much more to the table with exceptional fuel economy, appealing tech and safety features, and plenty of functionality. For a closer look at the 2016 Honda CR-V, continue reading.
Strong usability. A key strength to the 2016 CR-V is its everyday usability. This greatly shows in its interior design. Doors are wide, which allows for easy accessibility and space is abundant whether in front or back. Drivers will love that their seat is powered so adjustments are made easy, and the sense of openness due to the CR-V’s superior visibility is easily another perk drivers will greatly enjoy. Rear passengers get a taste of front-seat perks with seats that recline for increased comfort and support.
Shop or travel a lot? The CR-V is an excellent companion for both. Depending on which model you choose, you’ll be awarded with a powered liftgate so loading cargo items is much easier. The low load floor and overall boxy exterior shape are a real bonus, too, because it allows for easier loading, especially of larger or awkwardly-shaped items.
Rear seat backs are auto-folding, which adds a bit of originality to the CR-V. (Plus it’s clever.) Hit the switch, and as they unfold, watch cargo capacity expand to a huge 70.9 cubic feet - a top figure in the compact SUV class.
Increased safety with features. For those that enjoy tech gadgets and wouldn’t mind being safer behind the wheel, the 2016 CR-V will please. Aside from all of the typical standard safety content - antilock brakes, stability and traction control, airbags and rear view camera - the CR-V also includes many beneficial safety systems. It comes with Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system that includes a camera of its own that displays passenger-side blind-spot activity via a seven-inch touchscreen. Depending on model, you will also get a lane-departure warning system and forward-collision warning and mitigation system that is able to distinguish between vehicles and pedestrians and warn the driver accordingly; it also includes automatic braking intervention in order to reduce the severity of a collision.
Another notable tidbit about the CR-V is its impressive stop time. From 60 mph, the 2016 CR-V stopped in just 119 feet - a shorter-than-average distance or its class.
