Honda CR-V

The 2012 Honda CR-V is a popular SUV that integrates innovative features, such as AWD system, 31 mpg highway EPA rating and SMS texting. It is scheduled to go on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide on December 15th, announcing to its enthusiasts greater fuel efficiency, functionality and an upscale styling direction. This all-new 2012 model introduces the latest evolution of Honda's successful CR-V formula as the previous-generation CR-V was recognized as having the "Best Retained Value SUV under $25,000" by Edmunds.com and a "Top Recommended Vehicle". Power is delivered by a 2.4-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine which raises an output of 185 HP and 163 lb-ft of torque, mated to a standard five-speed automatic transmission. The new standard features of the vehicle are represented by a range of standard technology features and an Easy Fold-Down 60/40 Split Rear Seat. The driver will be undoubtedly pleased thanks to the Bluetooth function, HandsFreeLink phone interface, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines and a full-color intelligent Multi-Information Display. As compared to the previous generation, the appearance is more sophisticated and dynamic, while the interior is spacious and more accommodating, also featuring an overall lower cargo floor height for easy loading and unloading. The standard equipment on each CR-V incorporates an Anti-lock Braking System with Brake Assist, an electronic stability control system, side-curtain airbags, front-side airbags with a passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System, as well as a front seat design that can help reduce the severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision. The 2012 Honda CR-V is available with a 3-year/36,000-mile new-car limited warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and a 5-year/unlimited-mile corrosion limited warranty.
