Leather seats here are a joke- look and feel like vinyl, v. lo quality; "leatherette" maybe? And sides and back of seats are clearly vinyl, leather is seating area only- cheaply done.
Heated seats work poorly, v. disappointing.
Leather and heat in my old BMW 325 seats are far superior- - Honda blew it here, and the "leather"/heated seats are clearly not worth the extra cost for upgrade.
Cargo: rear seats do not fold forward far enuff; they leave 6" of dead space between front and back seat area- -
my skinny road bike does not fit well in here.
Would be nice if rear seats could be removed & reinserted easily.
Automatic All temp dual heating/cooling system is nice.
Stereo upgrade is decent.
More nooks for carrying stuff in console area;
Improved heat coils in heated seats;
Decent quality leather in seats, and more of it.
Better designed cargo space- more hooks and tie downs; removable rear seats, or at least seats that fold flush to floor or flush to the front seat backs-
too much wasted spacein cargo area.
Overall, Honda really disappointed me with their top-of-the line CRV-EX-L- - left sour taste;
Honda can do better, for the price they charge on this car.
