Comprehensively upgraded last year, the 2018 Honda CR-V carries over unchanged. The CR-V’s flight is quieter and more flexible than ever, and lodgings for front and rear residents are spacious and welcoming. You may hear some engine noise while accelerating up a highway onramp, however the sound falls on the pleasing side of the spectrum.
Edmunds Expert Review For 2018 Honda CR-V
The Honda CR-V was redesigned last year and, frankly, we were surprised by how deep the changes went. Instead of phone in some shallow tweaks to a top-selling model, Honda gave it a ground-up overhaul that decisively parted methods with its predecessor. The 2018 Honda CR-V sets a brand-new speed for its competitors to follow.
Among the tricks up this fifth-generation CR-V’s sleeve is a turbocharged engine that comes on all trims except for the base LX. With ample low-end torque and a fuel-sipping design– as much as 34 mpg highway, according to the EPA– the turbo engine is a natural fit in the CR-V.
The 2018 Honda CR-V also gains from an overhauled suspension that decreases body coming in corners without jeopardizing its traditionally certified flight. The wheelbase is longer, the front and rear tracks are wider, and there’s even an extra 1.5 inches of ground clearance for those who discovered that the previous CR-V scraped its stomach too often in light-duty off-roading.
2018 Honda CR-V Interior
Inside, the CR-V follows the most recent Civic’s lead with an up-to-date control panel, a digitally enhanced instrument cluster, and an upgraded touchscreen that the good news is consists of a physical volume knob. There’s also more rear legroom than in earlier models and an exceptional 75.8 cubic feet of optimum freight area that makes the apparently compact CR-V a legitimate option to midsize SUVs. Add everything up and the CR-V is a strong contender for best-in-class honors.
2018 Honda CR-V Trim Levels
The 2018 Honda CR-V is provided in four trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. The LX isn’t really exactly bare-bones, but it does have a less powerful engine in addition to a 5-inch display screen and no sunroof. Step up to the EX and you get a basic sunroof plus a 7-inch touchscreen, a power chauffeur seat and a more effective, turbocharged engine. The EX-L adds products such as leather, premium audio and a power liftgate, while the Touring goes all in with LED headlights, a subwoofer and more.
