Catch the 5-Seater 2018 Honda CR-V SUV in Penticton, BC
2018 Honda CR-V Performance & Economy
How much confidence does Honda have in its powertrain for the new 2018 CR-V? A lot! You can tell, because every trim of the new SUV comes with the same setup, as mentioned earlier, which was carried over from the Accord. The 1.5L direct-injected 4-cylinder manages a happy 190hp and 179 lb-ft of torque when paired with its continuously-variable transmission (CVT); more than enough oomph for your Okanagan Valley driving. All trims are also available with an all-wheel drive function to help improve traction in slippery winter conditions, while the front-wheel drive standard pulls off a delightful 7.0L/100km on the highway and still takes less than 8.4L/100km in the city, even when you are overdue for an oil or filter replacement.
2018 Honda CR-V Interior Highlights
Enjoy your ride from the inside! It seats five without the need to squish, has 2,146 litres of cargo space with the 60/40 split-rear seats folded down, and has a 7-inch touchscreen to manage your media systems and advanced safety features you’ll read about in a bit. But those specs don’t begin to do justice to the modern and handsome interior of the 2018 Honda CR-V. Full power accessories are standard across all models, with ample legroom to go around; you might take these features for granted, but they all but eliminate the nagging feeling of compromise that chisels away at your satisfaction when you’re picking individual options. Don’t worry, though; luxury touches still await those who get the fully-loaded Touring trim, such as projector beam headlights and adaptive cruise control.
2018 Honda CR-V Safety
Has Honda ever been known for being less than a guarantee for safe and reliable vehicles? The new 2018 CR-V shows this fine lineage, right from its standard package of ABS, stability and traction control, and a smart placement of multi-dimensional airbags. Beyond the fundamentals are some handy active safety tech features, like Honda’s LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system, standard on all CR-Vs above the base LX trim. Electronic tire pressure monitoring, hill start assist, and both Lane Departure and Forward Collision Warnings are all added safety perks we’re excited about with this new smaller SUV.
