The more miles per gallon a car gets, the less it tends to cost to drive the vehicle. One of the reasons why you should consider the Honda CR-V as your next family vehicle is because of its excellent fuel economy. The exact fuel economy depends on the version you choose, but the base engine gets an EPA-estimated 26 city/32 highway MPG, and the turbocharged engine gets an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG.2
Honda CR-V: Top Safety Features
You want to keep your children safe, and good safety test scores are important for a family vehicle. The CR-V scored the highest rating of Good on the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats tests, as well as getting a Superior score for front crash prevention with the optional safety equipment available.
Standard Safety Features
The base trim level of the CR-V includes a rearview camera to make it easier to back up safely, while higher trim levels include standard features like Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking, Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Driver Attention Monitor (which helps alert the driver if they’re starting to act drowsy behind the wheel).
CR-V Interior Space
The interior of the CR-V has plenty of space, with seats that are comfortable for relatively tall people, even in the back, with 40.4 inches of rear legroom. This means there’s also plenty of room for installing any necessary car seats. All three second-row seats have LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) connectors to safely install car seats.
Having a family sometimes means hauling around a lot of junk. The CR-V makes that possible with 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in use, and 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space if the rear seats are folded down. This is the most cargo space of any vehicle in its class!3
The CR-V comes standard with a 5-inch infotainment display, which increases to 7 inches in the higher trim models. It can also tow up to 1,500 pounds.
