Review: 2013 Honda CR-V

The 2013 Honda CR-V follows the popular redesign of 2012. As one of the most fuel efficient and award winning vehicles currently on the road today, we always feel you cannot wrong when you choose this Honda Crossover.

One thing everyone says is that the Honda CR-V is fun to drive. We detailed the redesign in great depth last year, and were please to find that 2013 picks up where 2012 left off. The Honda CR-V is very comfortable inside, with an emphasis on quality design and a smooth ride.

The CR-V is also a Buckeye, manufactured at Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio.

With up to 30 MPG, the Honda CR-V is one of the most fuel efficient SUVS to offer All Wheel Drive. The All Wheel Drive option was first introduced last year, and we think it’s important to have All Wheel Drive in this area.

Let’s be honest, it can be rough to drive in an Ohio winter, but with Honda CR-V’s All Wheel Drive, no road will be too tough to tame.



Beyond Available All Wheel Drive, the CR-V offers a ton of great special features. You can get your CR-V with available Heated Leather Seats for the winter, a sunroof for the summer, Bluetooth, Backup Camera, Navigation, Pandora Streaming, and even a Rear DVD player for the kids!

The Honda CR-V is a great choice for the adventurous consumer. Honda’s larger models all offer a great use of space, and the CR-Vi is no different. There is 100 cubic feet of passenger space, and if you fold down the rear seat, there is up to 70 cubic feet of cargo space.

This is perfect, especially in the summer when you are ready for a summer road trip and need to fit your camping gear, or the luggage for your summer road trip. With available tie down anchors, everything stays safe and secure.

Safety is also a big plus, as the CR-V has a 5-star crash test rating in NHTSA tests.

Let everyone else tell you how awesome the CR-V is.

In a test of all compacts, USA Today says to choose the Honda CR-V, adding “One of the most well-rounded in this segment. It’s a comfortable cruiser with a solid powertrain, a compliant ride and plenty of features.

“The brand’s history of strong reliability helps tip the scale.”
