Feels Just Right
By jcricket on
2013 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I am a big man. This car fits me. It is easy to enter and exit. The seats are wide and comfortable. The seating position and view of the road is higher than its competitors, a major factor in my town full of tall vehicles. The drive feel is responsive and a bit upscale. Gas mileage is good enough at this early stage of break-in. Some hwy trips have already gotten 33mpg. Averaging 26mpg combined. Still learning the electronics/phone. Handsfree phone is a nice plus. Cargo area is cavernous with rear seats easily dropped. Shortcomings - none of them deal killers: Headlights are a bit dim. I replaced them. AWD is just OK; good enough for snow but not serious off-road capable. Overall: Civilized.
Seat comfort, high position, view. Decent gas mileage. Looks good inside and out. Good ergonomics. Huge cargo area.
More off-road capable all wheel drive - this isn't a Subaru.
