2018 Honda CR-V
The 2018 Honda CR-V has it all: high-tech equipment, excellent fuel economy, and impressive space for cargo and people. This stylish, modern SUV is here to take you anywhere you dream of. It sets the bar for compact SUVs, with an eye-catching exterior, comfortable cabin, and impressive capability. Take this SUV home with front-wheel or all-wheel drive for a sophisticated ride and a go-anywhere spirit.
The 2018 Honda CR-V is crafted for excellence, whether you need it for your daily commute or your frequent getaways. Attractively styled both inside and out, the CR-V is also fun to drive and easy to pack up. A standard CVT transmission helps give you impressive fuel economy, so long trips down winding roads are no worry.
The CR-V was given a complete redesign last year, so this 2018 model is only improving on excellence. You can get more advanced driver-assist and safety technology on this model. It’s also roomier and more sophisticated on the inside, with more modern entertainment technology available.
The 2018 Honda CR-V offers over 50 technology features to help you get the most out of your SUV. Premium technology like full LED headlights and a standard multi-angle rearview camera helps keep you safe on the road. The standard rearview camera lets you choose from three angles to get the best view as you back up. The EX, EX-L, and Touring trims also offer standard Smart Entry with Walk-Away for security and peace of mind. There’s also Remote Engine Start, so you can get your vehicle ready as you walk toward it. You can also get rain-sensing windshield wipers that automatically adjust their frequency, so you can keep clear eyes on the road ahead.
Modern infotainment technology makes the 2018 Honda CR-V a blast for your passengers, as well. The CR-V has lots of options that let you stay connected and plugged in to your favorite adventure music, podcasts, and more. Between USB connectivity, HondaLink, and compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Pandora, you’ll be all set for music entertainment. The new infotainment system features a clean seven-inch Display Audio Touchscreen that you can touch, pinch, and swipe through. Combining responsive touchscreen buttons with a physical volume and power knob lets you easily control your audio experience. The Touring trim also comes with a 330-Watt premium sound system with nine speakers, and with standard Honda Navigation.
The 2018 Honda CR-V offers a new turbocharged engine option. It pairs beautifully with the responsive CVT transmission for smooth shifting and power at the ready. This combination is perfect for both around-town errands and long road trips. The base-model CR-V LX features a 2.4L inline-four engine instead of the turbocharged one, which offers 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. For more boost, you can get any of the other CR-V trims with the 1.5L turbo engine, which produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. Both engine options are paired with the CVT transmission and Honda’s Eco Assist System for excellent fuel economy.
The 2018 Honda CR-V handles like a dream. It offers a refined ride, and may surprise other SUV owners with its smooth composure. When your kids finally fall asleep in the backseat, you can count on the CR-V’s quiet cruising to keep them that way. Then, when you’re faced with a fun and exciting road, the CR-V also offers generous engagement and enthusiastic steering. Even when it lets its hair down, the CR-V has strong brakes and a chassis designed for excellent road manners, so you can have some fun and remain safe and steady on the road.
The 2018 Honda CR-V features a top-tier interior that welcomes you in. This SUV was designed inside and out to reflect a versatile lifestyle, so it offers a beautiful combination of rugged and sophisticated elements. Once you’re settled inside, the premium materials and innovative technology invite you to get comfortable. With leather trim standard on some models, and premium, comfortable cloth on the LX and EX trim, it’s easy to let the miles slip by in comfort.
The CR-V also offers premium interior space. It has one of the more spacious rear seats in its class, offering plenty of room for adults in the back seats. The front-passenger space is ample as always, and provides easy access to lots of clever storage solutions. The interior is made to be both attractive and practical. An adjustable parcel shelf in the center console can slide into three positions to make room for your tablet or bag. Cupholders are set sturdily into the storage console and are kept within easy reach but out of the way of your elbows.
All but the LX trim have dual-zone automatic climate control to keep you and your passengers at the optimal temperature. The EX-L and Touring trims feature more luxuries like an automatic-dimming rearview mirror and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. They also feature a sleek leather interior, with heated front seats and a driver’s seat with 12-way power adjustment and 4-way power lumbar support.
The 2018 Honda CR-V gets top marks from the NHTSA*** in its safety tests. It’s also full of active and passive safety technology to help keep you and your family safe on the road. Every 2018 Honda CR-V has Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, an anti-lock braking system, electronic brake distribution, and brake assist. The CR-V has a tire-pressure monitoring system to warn you when your tire pressure is off and could endanger your driving dynamics. It’s also packed with standard airbags and Honda’s ACE body structure to keep you safe in the event of a collision.
More driver assist and safety technology includes the standard multi-angle rearview camera on every 2018 Honda CR-V. While the LX trim offers static guidelines, the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims offer a camera with dynamic guidelines to help you reverse safely. All but the LX trim now have standard Honda Sensing, a suite of advanced safety and driver assist features. With Honda Sensing, you get forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, and a road departure mitigation system. It also includes a lane keeping assist system, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, and a blind spot monitoring system, as well as auto high-beam headlights for dark roads.
The 2018 Honda CR-V comes in four different trims so that you can choose the value and features you want to take home. The base LX trim already has a ton of great standard features, including LED daytime running lights and the multi-angle rearview camera. Any trim can be built with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive if you want better traction and capability in poor weather or rougher roads. The LX and EX trims come with either black or ivory cloth interiors. While the LX is available in six exterior colors, the EX trim jumps up to 10 available colors.
The EX-L and Touring trims offer more luxury and convenience in your versatile SUV. They both feature leather-trimmed interiors in either black or ivory. They’re built for high-end adventure, with yet luxurious materials. There’s also lovely wooden accents around the cabin, and a soft-touch dashboard.
