The 2018 Honda CR-V has long been a trademark Honda vehicle, thanks to its interior features, passenger and cargo space, and overall strong safety performance. It was fully redesigned in 2017, and the 2018 model year brings some important tweaks and changes to the table for drivers in Centennial, Aurora, and Denver.
The sales team at Mile High Honda has put together this review of the 2018 Honda CR-V trim levels. Each trim level brings different standard and available features, so it’s helpful to know what features are offered before deciding on your next vehicle. Read on to educate yourself about this standout crossover SUV.
Honda CR-V Trims
The 2018 Honda CR-V comes in four different trim levels. Let’s explore them.
2018 Honda CR-V LX
The base trim of the CR-V, this stylish crossover SUV is equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, capable of producing a peppy 184 horsepower. It’s mated to a continuously variable transmission.
There’s seating for five inside this crossover, and the fold-down 60/40 split rear seatback makes things more convenient. Set things up the way you’d like, whether all five seats are being used or the back is needed for longer cargo.
The Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines is another standout standard feature. When backing up in your driveway or at the mall, keep your eyes on what’s going on behind the vehicle. A quick glance at the camera in the center console will let you know if there are any objects in your path when backing up.
2018 Honda CR-V EX
This trim changes the engine to a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder. It produces 190 horsepower, a slight upgrade over the LX trim, but is friendlier for those looking to avoid filling up at the pump. It comes with Remote Engine Start, so it’s easy to start the car before even stepping inside the cabin. It’s another feature that makes it easier to get on your way.
This trim adds the Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistive features. From the helpful Lane Keeping Assist System that keeps the 2018 CR-V in a detected lane to the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ that applies the brakes if a frontal collision is predicted, these features are designed to protect. The blind spot information system with cross traffic monitor goes a step further, alerting you to vehicles in your blind spot when making that next move.
2018 Honda CR-V EX-L
When carrying cargo, it’s nice to make things as easy as they can be. The standard power tailgate comes in handy on this trim, with a programmable height function to open as much as you want it to. Inside the cabin, the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob provide drivers with a better grip while piloting the CR-V.
The leather-trimmed seats provide comfort for every drive, while the driver’s seat comes with two-position memory. This provides a sense of familiarity every time you’re ready to drive.
2018 Honda CR-V Touring
Get to where you’re going with the Touring trim, complete with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with voice recognition technology, along with Honda HD Digital Traffic and HD Radio™. These features work to inform you while driving.
This CR-V also carries LED headlights, which brighten any drive at night and allow other vehicles to see you more clearly during the day. The hands-free access power tailgate is a joy to have, particularly when juggling cargo when walking to the car. The premium audio system on the Touring trim comes with nine speakers, including a subwoofer, for top-notch sound throughout the cabin.
Test Drive the 2018 Honda CR-V
