Excellent balance of design elements
By flicker25 on


2013 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I am 6'2", 290# and can fit into front or back seats without banging head or knees.

Vehicle is silky smooth in performance, quiet at high speeds, nimble in handling.

Turning radius very tight despite room in front/back/cargo areas.

Styling to me exceeds others in class.
Interior is well laid out; controls are intuitive and easily reached.

Driving a flat 30 miles home from dealership at 55 mph in eco mode, instantaneous mileage dropped below 30 mpg only twice.
Me likee.

Don't think Honda engineers could balance all elements of form and function better than they did.

I am retired and no Honda fanboy, but vehicle is exceptional.

Best Features

Ability to transport 4-5 adults at high speed with comfort, cargo, and good (but not great) gas mileage. High cubic footage of interior volume wrapped in package with modest length/width/height measurements. Whips into mall parking spaces no sweat. Design of instrument cluster, esp. instantaneous gas mileage within speedo circle, allows quick acquisition of driving information. Price paid for value given is very much in favor of consumer.

Worst Features

If Honda could give this SUV a turbocharged 2.0 engine that gets 34-36 mpg, it would blow every competitor out of the water.
