2018 Honda CR-V Named SUV of the Year®

In its fifth generation, the new Honda CR-V found its way to the top ranks of SUVs for the second time. Named Motor Trend's 2018 SUV of the Year®, the CR-V had experienced some redesigns in the past two model years that set it apart from its many competitors.

 Let's take a look at how the 2018 Honda CR-V managed to earn such high esteem from these expert judges and beat out a crowded field of top-notch crossover SUVs.

2018 CR-V Style & Design

The 2018 model year included some changes to the exterior dimensions, which added a significant amount of space to the Honda CR-V interior. It also offers better materials and high-tech features. Plus, it featured an elegant and sleek design, inside and out, that increased its usability and appeal.

Honda CR-V Interior Dimensions

As one of its best features, the interior of the 2018 Honda CR-V is spacious, comfortable, versatile, and highly functional. The focus of its instrument cluster was usability, and its intuitive technology and infotainment interface are incredibly simple to navigate. It also leads the class with 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, as well as an abundance of smaller storage areas.

  • Headroom (front/rear): 40.9 inches/39.2 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 41.3 inches/40.4 inches
  • Shoulder room (front/rear): 57.9 inches/55.6 inches
  • Hip room (front/rear): 55.1 inches/49.5 inches

2018 CR-V Engine Specs

The newest design of the 2018 Honda CR-V is larger, but it shed significant weight in its redesign, which did wonders for its performance and handling. It's available with two engine variants: a 184-horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, and a 190-horsepower turbocharged 1.5L engine. Both engines transfer power through a refined continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Honda Safety Features

Many modern vehicles are equipped with some safety features, but few are as well-engineered as the Honda Sensing® safety suite. These driver-assisting features are standard for most of the 2018 CR-V trim levels and include Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation System, and more. This technology is designed to limit the risk of an accident, as well as keep you better protected in the event one does occur.

  • Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System
  • Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®
  • SiriusXM® Radio
