Model News

For 2009 Honda carries the CR-V over with no changes, except three new exterior colors: Crystal Black Pearl, Alabaster Silver Metallic and Urban Titanium Metallic.


Value Writeup

The CR-V is a compact 5-passenger vehicle that, in driving manners, shares more in common with sedans than with traditional SUVs; it handles surprisingly well for its height, yet doesn't compromise ride quality. Crash test safety is another strong point; the CR-V has achieved top ratings in U.S. tests and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick.


Model Highlights

All CR-V models are powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 166 horsepower. The engine has a drive-by-wire throttle and qualifies as a low-emissions ULEV-2 vehicle. A 5-speed automatic transmission transmits the power to either front-wheel drive or to all wheels through an available all-wheel drive system.

Despite the CR-V's all-4-cylinder lineup, acceleration is perky with a light load, adequate when brimming with passengers and cargo. Honda has kept the weight down, with the use of high-strength steel helping to provide rigidity, and the car-based platform and independent suspension give it a much more nimble feel on the road than might otherwise be expected in a tall vehicle; wind and road noise are also commendably muted. Honda's lightweight Real Time 4-wheel drive system brings power to the rear wheels only when the traction is needed.

Inside, the CR-V has seating for five, with a nice upright position in front (aided by tilt/telescopic steering) and impressive headroom and legroom in back, even for adults. As is expected in this type of vehicle, the back seat can be folded forward (in part or completely) to expand cargo space. On the top EX and EX-L models, a dual-deck cargo shelf adds more capacity while keeping enough space below for grocery bags. LX and EX models have a retractable center tray-table, while the upscale EX-L has a center console that extends to the back.

Safety is an area that hasn't been neglected in the CR-V. Electronic stability control--a lifesaving feature designed to prevent the loss of control on slippery roads or during abrupt maneuvers--is standard, and the equipment list also includes side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor, front side airbags and anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist.

The CR-V isn't offered in a stripped-down base model; even the lowest-priced LX comes with a very long list of often-times-optional conveniences, including cruise control, power accessories, a trip computer, and air conditioning with a filtration system. The top EX-L model upgrades to 17-inch alloy wheels, a chrome grille, and other dress-up on the outside, plus leather heated seats, leather trim, heated mirrors, dual zone climate control, a security system, and a 270-watt sound system with CD changer, six speakers, and XM satellite radio.

One especially noteworthy option is Honda's Satellite-Linked Navigation System, which includes voice recognition and a rearview camera. The system now includes a CompactFlash reader that to play music files such as MP3.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
