Motor Trend Awards Honor the 2015 Honda CR-V
Smooth and Enjoyable Performance
The 2.4L engine with 185 hp that peaks at 6400 makes this vehicle get up and go when you need it most. Torque is also an admirable 163 lb-ft at 4400 rpm. The continuously variable transmission keeps the vehicle running smoothly through the stop and go of in-town driving, but still provides plenty of punch for passing and quick starts. A tighter steering ratio, updated chassis, and great handling made the Motor Trend judges sing the praises of this fun and versatile vehicle.
Clean and Enjoyable Design
The design of the 2015 CR-V has earned praise for being a steady middle-of-the-road look that isn’t too flashy. In addition, the interior offers great ergonomic features that keep drivers and passengers comfortable on any trip. Second row legroom is spacious and storage capacity is ample without hogging the road. Judges loved how easy it was to significantly expand the cargo space with the flick of a couple of levers. A class-first HDMI input lets you sit and watch movies or television on your dash screen while you wait for soccer practice to end.
