I was sold when I drove my sisters EX automatic. The CRV is very functional and practical. If you’re looking for more interior room this is the car to get. As far as performance the manual is so fun to drive and has a bit more "go power" then the automatic. Honda has such a great reputation for reliability and functionality. I know we will have this car for at least 10 years or more to come.
Manual transmission, that it's a Honda, styling, AWD, sunroof.
Armrest, more storage in front, heated side mirrors.
