When Honda released the CR-V in the late 90s, they had one simple task for it: to offer a different option to the more popular mid-sized and full-sized sport-utility vehicles. With a sedan-like design, smooth ride and handling, plus an efficient four-cylinder engine, the CR-V quickly became an instant classic. Additionally, with a competitive price tag, a lot of cargo room, and excellent passenger capacity, the Honda CR-V has enjoyed its share of loyalty from the car buying public.

These days, the range of available compact and small sport-utility vehicles is better than ever. In fact, it has grown to include a lot of different models, with different viewpoints of what comprises an ideal mix of muscle and potential. While some can really rough it out during off road travel, the Honda CR-V focuses mainly on the practical. In the vital areas of being easy to drive and being suitable for families, the Honda CR-V stays true.

The latest Honda CR-V is the fourth generation model. Though hardware changes are very minimal, there are enough changes in the Honda CR-V to keep it competitive in the midsized crossover sport-utility vehicle segment.

Offered in the same size, as always, the Honda CR-V comes in three different trims: the LX, EX, and the EX-L. The LX itself is well-equipped, which means that the EX and the EX-L have many upgrades and premium features. In fact, the EX-L can even get extra navigation or a digital video disc entertainment system, the latter which the family will surely enjoy.

The Honda CR-V is available at reputable Honda dealers along with the Honda Odyssey Ottawa residents love. No matter what trim it is, all Honda CR-Vs come standard with a 2.4 liter inline four-cylinder engine that can generate 185 horsepower and 163 pound feet of torque. They all run on five speed transmission and have an all wheel drive option perfect for the humid continental climate of Ottawa.

Additionally, the Honda Pilot Ottawa residents love to drive offers many other advantages. Its interior is well-constructed and is made of durable, superior materials. Its ride is also very comfy and more hushed than ever. Furthermore, the Honda CR-V’s handling and steering remains one of its strongest features.

The acceleration of the Honda CR-V is excellent when in town. However, the ride is a bit sluggish on the highway compared to its competitors donning a V6 engine. But still, as long as your everyday path does not include heavy cargo, overly steep roads and tons of highway driving, the CR-V will suit your lifestyle well.
