Honda New CR-V Feature

The CR-V sports for you who want the satisfaction of driving.

Performance Features
180-hp, 2.4-Liter, 16-Valve DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder Engine
The 2.4-liter, dual overhead camshaft (DOHC) i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine is designed to meet the CR-V’s fuel-mileage and lower-emissions goals: the 2WD CR-V achieves 21/28/24 (city/highway/combined)[1], and has a ULEV-2 CARB emissions rating[2].

[1] 21 city/28 hwy/24 combined mpg for 2WD models and 21 city/27 hwy/23 combined mpg for 4WD models. Based on 2010 EPA mileage estimates, reflecting new EPA fuel economy methods beginning with 2008 models. Use for comparison purposes only. Do not compare to models before 2008. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.

[2] ULEV-2 rated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

5-Speed Automatic Transmission

The 5-speed automatic transmission features Grade Logic Control. The transmission uses the engine's broad torque curve for brisk acceleration, optimal fuel economy and smooth-shifting characteristics.

Drive-by-Wire™ Throttle System

Fast-responding electronics take the place of a traditional throttle cable and produce greater response, fuel efficiency and driveability with minimum adjustment and maintenance.

Grade Logic Control

Automatic transmissions use Honda's Grade Logic Control system. This system differs from other computer-controlled shift programming because it can detect vehicle driving situations and then set appropriate shift points for the car. This feature avoids gear hunting on ascents and descents, and downshifts for added engine braking.

MacPherson Strut Front Suspension

The way that the CR-V handles around turns and over bumps is almost indiscernible from that of a regular passenger car. There is very little body roll or tire noise around sharp turns, and the suspension soaks up bumps with ease. This can be attributed in part to the CR-V's well-tuned suspension.

Real Time™ 4WD

The remarkable Real Time™ 4-wheel drive system, available on all CR-V trim levels, increases drivetrain efficiency, decreases noise and vibration, and only operates in 4WD when necessary. Here is how it works: When there is insufficient traction at the front wheels, the Real Time™ 4WD system automatically uses dual hydraulic pumps to transfer power to the rear wheels. There is no need for driver intervention. The greater the degree of front-wheel slippage, the more torque is directed to the rear wheels. Best of all, Real Time™ 4WD requires little maintenance.


Want it? The CR-V’s got it.
Talk Hands-Free
With the newly available Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®[2], you can make calls with your compatible cell phone while you’re on the go (EX-L with Navigation).

Stellar Audio
Take your MP3s along for the ride. The new USB Audio Interface[3] (EX-L) makes it easy to listen to your favorite driving soundtrack. And all CR-V audio systems feature an MP3/auxiliary input jack and are MP3- and Windows Media® Audio (WMA)-compatible[4].

Steering wheel-mounted controls, available heated leather seating (EX-L) and a one-touch power moonroof (EX, EX-L) make driving a CR-V even more enjoyable. Just sit back and relax in the driver’s seat with 10-way power adjustment including power lumbar support (EX-L).

Perfectly Convenient
EX-L models feature a center console with two beverage holders and a 12-volt power outlet and MP3/auxiliary input jack. Storage space abounds thanks to the upper and lower glove compartments and the rear dual-deck cargo shelf (EX, EX-L). Need more space? The 60/40 split rear seats have got you covered.

The CR-V seats five comfortably, and rear passengers can also enjoy their own rear air vents and fold-down center armrest.

3-Point Seat Belts at All Seating Positions and Front-Seat Automatic Tensioning Systems
Front 3-point seat belts with automatic tensioning system ride across the lap and chest to help restrain occupants during sudden stops or impact.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. The ACE design utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This enhanced frontal crash energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes to help prevent wheel lockup. This helps the driver retain steering control during hard braking.

Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
The CR-V enhances its visibility to others by incorporating Daytime Running Lights (DRL) up front.

Driver's and Front Passenger's Active Head Restraints
In a sufficient rear-end impact, the active head restraints move forward and up, helping reduce the likelihood of neck injury.

Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
The vehicle is equipped with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS). One or both of these airbags will be deployed only in the event of a sufficient frontal impact. If deployed, these airbags are capable of being inflated at different rates depending on crash severity, seatbelt usage and other factors. Frontal airbags are designed to supplement the seatbelts to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries in frontal crashes.

Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)
In the event of a moderate-to-severe side impact, the side airbag inflates to help protect the driver’s or front passenger’s upper body. The Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) utilizes sensors in the front passenger’s seatback to detect the height and seating position of the occupant. If a child or small-statured adult is leaning into the deployment path of the side airbag, sensors deactivate it.

Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH)
All five seats are equipped with 3-point seat belts. The rear seats feature the Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) mounting system for use with compatible child seats.

Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
The side curtain airbag module is positioned along the side of the headliner. In the event of a sufficient side impact or rollover, this system will activate to help provide protection for both front and outboard rear passengers. A new type of inflator provides an exceptionally quick inflation time.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
This system monitors the pressure in all four tires and alerts the driver when the pressure in any tire becomes significantly low[1].
[1] For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge. Do not rely solely on the monitor system. Please see your Honda dealer for details.

Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
This sophisticated safety device aids the driver in retaining control of the vehicle if wheel slippage is detected. When the driver is cornering or must make a sudden maneuver, the system can sense oversteer and understeer and can brake individual wheels and/or reduce power to restore the driver’s intended course.
