2018 Honda CR-V Named Best Compact SUV for Families
The 2018 Honda CR-V covers a huge range of utility, comfort, and performance, which is why it recently made the top of the list for family vehicles! U.S. News & World Report recently released their 2018 Best Cars for Families list, and the new CR-V is their top pick for compact SUVs*! As families spend more time together on the road, it’s even more important to find the car, truck, or SUV that fits your family needs. That’s why U.S. News collects the best vehicles for families, and highlights the cars, minivans, and SUVs that work hard and make room for any stage of family life.
U.S. News & World Report tested 127 new cars from the 2018 model year to determine the best across 11 categories. Their methodology combines professional reviews, safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume, and the availability of family-friend features. High-tech features are becoming more common and more in-demand in modern cars. In addition to safety technology, families also want conveniences and luxury features in the family SUV. The 2018 Honda CR-V goes above and beyond with its high-quality interior, good safety scores, and some of the best cargo and passenger space around.
Any family spending time in the car needs plenty of space. In order to avoid backseat territorial disputes between siblings, the 2018 Honda CR-V has tons of passenger space. With 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume and a whopping 40.4 inches of rear legroom, the CR-V is built to accommodate growth spurts. It also has lots of handy cubbies and storage spaces around the cabin. An adjustable parcel shelf can slide into any of three positions, so that you have room for small items, a tablet, or even a bag in the center console. There’s also plenty of room to store your gear or haul larger items around. The CR-V offers 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space with all the seats up, and gives you 75.8 cubic feet when you fold the second row down.
The CR-V’s cabin is also full of family-friendly conveniences and comfortable design. It’s full of soft-touch surfaces and premium materials to go with the thoughtful technologies. The 2018 Honda CR-V has quick-heating front seats for frosty mornings and winter drives. A dual-zone automatic climate control system comes standard at the EX trim and above, so that everyone can enjoy the optimal temperature. No more fighting over charging outlets, either: the CR-V comes with standard 12-volt power outlets in the front and center console, and a standard USB port in the center console, plus an extra one for EX models and above in the center console.
Safety is another high priority in any family vehicle. That’s why the 2018 Honda CR-V comes equipped with all kinds of standard and available safety features. Every CR-V comes with Honda’s Vehicle Stability Assist traction control system, as well as Brake Assist and electronic brake distribution. There’s also a standard multi-angle rearview camera, so that you can easily reverse and park the CR-V. Not only that, but the Honda Sensing safety suite is available, too. It comes standard on every CR-V except the base-model LX, and includes all kinds of advanced, intuitive safety features. Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and Road Departure Mitigation System all come included with this advanced safety suite.
