It is no question that Honda has a legacy of producing high quality vehicles that are also extremely innovative. The brand has won multiple loyalty and value awards, and rightfully so. With the new and revamped 2015 Honda CR-V only just hitting the market at the beginning of this month, Honda is adding yet another trophy to its case: 2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year.
What ultimately swayed the decision of the judges at Motor Trend? A large part of it had to do with the abundance of new features being offered in the 2015 CR-V.
“The 2015 Honda CR-V impressed our judges with its extensive list of delightful design and thoughtful engineering improvements,” said Motor Trend editor-in-chief Ed Loh. “Our editors were especially impressed by Honda’s responsive and efficient continuously-variable transmission and sophisticated safety systems – particularly the smart and seamlessly integrated Lane Keeping Assist system. Efficient, practical, and a joy to drive; the 2015 Honda CR-V does virtually everything well.”
New features available in the 2015 Honda CR-V include a new direct-injected Earth Dreams Technology™ i-VTEC® mated to a new CVT, which results in an 11% boost in torque and estimated fuel economy improvements of 3 combined mpg.
Other standard features include a center console armrest, sliding sunvisors, and rear console ventilation ducts. All of this in addition to improvements to the chassis, braking, and overall exterior aesthetic.
