2012 CR-V


The 2012 Honda CR-V is completely redesigned with more standard features, a different exterior, an upgraded interior space as well as better-fuel economy.

The Honda CR-V is at the top of the seller list in the cross-over segment due to its smooth ride, user-friendly utilities, comfortable seating and its over all conveniences. Honda improved the CR-V by adding to the already great design to make it even better for the users.  This was accomplished by using a different sheet metal for the exterior and cabin design to make it look sleeker. The CR-V was also given a few performance upgrades to help the driver get exactly what they are looking for out of a family car.

The engine and the transmission are the same as the 2011 CR-V model, although the powertrain was changed to achieve a better fuel economy. The size of the seating and the steering wheel are the same. The CR-V has lost an inch off of the height and length of the vehicle. This reduced size does not affect the legroom and in fact the cargo capacity has increased. 

There were complaints from the drivers of the 2011 CR-V that within the cabin there was a lot of road noise. To solve this problem Honda has added extra insolation within the CR-V’s for a quieter drive. Honda also made some changes to the suspension calibration which has also helped reduce the road noise being transferred into the cabin.

When it comes to technology upgrades in the CR-V, Honda has really stepped it up for the 2012 models. Pandora Radio Interface has been added to the CR-V along with a text messaging function. Also, Bluetooth and rearview mirrors are in every CR-V 2012 model. For the first time, you can have a rear DVD entertainment system installed in the Honda CR-V 2012 model.

The 2012 Honda CR-V is a crossover SUV that’s compact nearing on midsize. The different options for the CR-V are:

  • LX
  • EX
  • EX-L
  • EX-L with Navigation
  • EX-L with Rear Entertainment System trim levels

Each can be equipped with front- or all-wheel drive.
