Utility Features of the 2018 Honda CR-V

Drivers who’d like their next new car to offer more utility will be hard pressed to pass over the 2018 Honda CR-V. This one-of-a-kind two-row SUV has a $24,250 MSRP* for the LX 2WD trim, and we think Wisconsin’s drivers will love what it can do. As Autotrader has noted, “Increased ground clearance, best-in-class interior space and rear legroom, and available all-wheel drive make the CR-V one of the most versatile machines in the segment.”

On top of all this, this year’s efficient CR-V is capable of towing heavy loads too! Take a look at these specs:

2018 Honda CR-V 39.2 cu. ft. 75.8 cu. ft. 1500 lbs.

CR-V Interior Flexibility and Cargo Storage

Part of the 2018 Honda CR-V’s utility consists in its ability to transport an extraordinary variety of cargo. Its flexible interior and its tow rating both help this year’s model to stand out in an increasingly crowded market, and once you’ve seen what it can do, you’ll understand why it’s a great choice for Wisconsin’s most adventurous drivers.

Interior Configurations: The CR-V’s flexible interior makes it the perfect SUV for any job. With all of your seats in their upright positions, you’ll be able to seat five passengers in 105.9 cu. ft. (LX trim) while storing up to 39.2 cu. ft. of cargo and equipment. At a moment’s notice, you’ll be able to utilize the CR-V’s Easy Fold-Down 60/40 Split Rear Seat—a standard feature on all trim levels—to access up to 75.8 cu. ft. of storage space. A Power Tailgate comes standard on the EX-L, and Hands-Free Access is included with the Touring upgrade.
Tow Rating and Capacity: The CR-V’s cavernous interior leaves little to be desired, but Wisconsin’s drivers will still be glad to learn that this two-row SUV can tow heavy or bulky cargo that won’t fit inside the cabin. Whether you opt for 2WD or AWD, the CR-V’s tow rating is no less than 1500 lbs. A Trailer Hitch is available as an accessory on every available CR-V trim level.
Exterior Features and Accessories: The CR-V has been designed to take all of your adventures to the next level! To that end, each trim has been outfitted with an Active Shutter Grille, a Remote Entry System, and a Roofline Spoiler with an Integrated Brake Light. Upgraded models receive Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock, Fog Lights, LED Headlights, and Roof Rails. Drivers who opt for accessories will be able to take advantage of Cross Bars, a Roof Rack, and numerous specialized sports equipment carriers.

Engine Power, All-Wheel Drive, and Off-Road Capability

Honda’s All-Wheel Drive lineup improves every year, and the 2018 Honda CR-V is offering more than ever before. This year’s model is available with either a 2.4-Liter 4-Cylinder engine or a 1.5-Liter 4-Cylinder Turbocharged engine, but no matter which you choose, you’ll be able to access high-end AWD that will make every drive more exciting.

Ground Clearance: When you’re travelling without significant amounts of heavy cargo, you’ll enjoy ground clearance of up to 7.8 inches, or up to 8.2 inches of the same with All-Wheel Drive! Every CR-V sports MacPherson Front Strut Suspension, Multi-Link Double Wishbone Rear Suspension, Alloy Wheels (18 inches on the EX and up), and All-Season Tires
Power and Efficiency: At the end of the day, the CR-V’s utility features function as intended because they’re backed by one of two powerful-yet-economizing engine options. The LX trim includes an In-Line 4-Cylinder engine that offers 184 hp and 180 lb.-ft. of torque at 3900 RPM. Drivers who upgrade to the EX trim or higher will receive an In-Line 4-Cylinder with a Single-Scroll Turbocharger instead. Although it generates similar power levels—190 hp and 179 lb.-ft. of torque at 2000 RPM—the smaller turbocharged engine provides significant improvements to fuel economy.
All-Wheel Drive: The 2018 Honda CR-V’s AWD option is Real Time All-Wheel Drive with the Intelligent Control System, and it’s available as an upgrade in all four of the CR-V’s trim levels. Real Time AWD improves nearly every aspect of your vehicle’s performance, but it makes an especially noticeable impact on safety. This system distributes power right where it’s needed even before your wheels begin to slip, so you’ll enjoy a safer, smoother ride.
