The CR-V which is in its fourth generation still serves as a benchmark for the segment it helped define. This compact SUV seats five passengers with the comfort of a mid-sized sedan. A cavernous cargo area measures 37 cubic feet with the rear seat up. At just 178 inches in length, the CR-V is almost a foot shorter than your typical family sedan making it easier to get around town and park. The only available engine is a 2.4l four-cylinder engine is rated at 185-bhp. Some competitive vehicles offer V6 power in this segment foregoing fuel economy for power. Fuel economy for the CR-V is a competitive 23/31 on FWD models, but the CR-V is somewhat limited by a five-speed transmission in a market where six-speed units are becoming the norm. Three trim levels are offered: LX, EX and EX-L. The LX model is well-equipped with common power equipment, cloth seats and steel wheels. The upgraded EX model includes upgraded cloth seats and a sunroof. The top EX-L model includes leather heated leather seats, dual zone climate control and a 328-watt audio system for about $28,000 (FWD).
