Superior safety technologies and impressive crash test scores have made the 2018 Honda CR-V a clear standout in the compact crossover segment. It’s also worth noting that the CR-V is part of Honda’s celebrated All-Wheel Drive lineup, and that AWD can be equipped on any CR-V with a continuously variable transmission. AWD with the Intelligent Control System is a no-brainer for drivers who often have to contend with the elements.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering: ACE body structure uses an innovative combination of rigid and collapsible building materials in order to keep cabin-seated passengers much safer in the event of a collision. It’s standard on every CR-V model.

Blind Spot Monitoring System: Keep an eye on the vehicles in your periphery by taking advantage of Honda’s blind spot monitoring system, standard on the EX. This tool uses visual indicators—located on the CR-V’s side-view mirrors—to alert you to the presence of vehicles in your blind spot.

Amazing Audio: Those who aren’t satisfied with the LX’s 160-watt four-speaker system, the EX’s 180-watt six-speaker system, or the EX-L’s 180-watt eight-speaker system can upgrade to the 330-watt nine-speaker Premium Audio System with a subwoofer in the CR-V Touring.
