2012 Honda CR-V: There's a Place for Wine, Too

July 13, 2012


Here's another in what's sure to be a vast series of posts on our 2012 Honda CR-V's clever storage solutions. Yesterday, I made a fuss about wanting a handbrake and said I'd give up some of the CR-V's center console storage to get one.

Hours later, I was almost ready to take back those short-sighted words when I realized the deep center console box is a nifty solution for transporting wine securely from the grocery store. The rolltop-desk-style sliding lid is particularly convenient as it doesn't get in the way like a flip-top lid would.

Aside, someone asked if we would max out the hauling capacity of the CR-V. No promises, but that may happen next week when I pick up the six cases of wine I ordered, plus some cava-type sparkling wine, plus numerous other party paraphernalia.
