Just traded in our 2009 CR-V for a new 2014 CR-V. My wife loved the 2009 but I thought it was just OK. Didnt plan to buy a new car but the trade in was so good I could not pass up the new CR-V. The 2014 is a far better car. I love it. Better body styling, better handling, a lot more quiet on the road, more comfortable, more upscale interior, more standard features, better acceleration and better gas mileage.
From a price/quality/performance perspective this is a great car, plus you get Hondas reliability. I recommend the EX-L model.
Compared to the 2009 model. Better performance, gas mileage, passenger comfort, less road noise.
Better documentation on the electronics, Maybe a quick reference guide.
A warning that you will probably have to recalibrate the tire air pressure warning system after a couple
