Motor Trend Awards Honor the 2015 Honda CR-V

December 17th, 2014 by
The 2015 Honda CR-V has earned the high honor of being named the 2015 Motor Trend SUV of the year. This prestigious award signifies the CR-V as a leader in great safety features, responsive handling, and a comfortable interior. Often, SUVs can lose the fun factor in the midst of becoming practical family vehicles, but the recent improvements by Honda keep the CR-V feeling fresh and exciting no matter where you travel.

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.

Maximum Value and Use

The Motor Trend awards praised the effortless balance that the CR-V brings to the crossover sport utility vehicle market. The 2015 Honda CR-V is both fun and economical, helping it pack a double-punch for value. The car easily meets its intended goal of helping a family transport around all the gear for sports practices and vacations without sacrificing the thrill of a good drive.
