When it comes to performance, the 2018 Honda CR-V doesn’t lack by any means. Equipped with a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the vehicle generates 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. It provides robust acceleration and a decent fuel economy at 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. But if you are looking for more power, the optional 190-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine is an excellent choice as well and provides a slightly improved fuel economy at 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. Included with the CR-V is standard front wheel drive but all-wheel drive is available for better traction off the road. Also standard is a continuously variable transmission that shifts smoothly under most circumstances.

Honda has taken special care not to short-change anyone when it comes to features. Standard features included in the CR-V are four-speaker audio, USB ports, Bluetooth, a rearview camera and a 5-inch display.

Cloth seating comes standard, but leather seating with heating is available. Seats can also be folded down to afford up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
