2012 Honda CR-V: Blind-Spot Mirror
August 16, 2012
Kelly Toepke previously blogged about the integrated blind-spot mirror in the CR-V, noting that she found the distortion it causes to be annoying. I too found that it was strange, especially when wearing glasses. I also don't think it does a very good job of actually showing you what's in the car's blind spot. I think the Fiat 500 had a similar mirror, but I thought it did a better job.
Now, Ford's integrated blind-spot mirror (pictured after the jump) found in most of its cars is far superior. It gives you a much better view of what's going on at 7 and 8 o'clock. In fact, I like it much better than the little blinking lights that come with high-tech blind-spot warning systems.
