2012 Honda CR-V Review

From bumper to bumper the new 2012 CR-V is loaded with practically everything you need to tackle your Leap List. The 2.4-liter dual overhead camshaft i VTEC 4 cylinder engine has 185 horsepower and 163 pound feet of torque. The available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System helps your CR-V react lightning-fast to the slightest loss of traction. Inside everything has a place and a purpose. Steering wheel-mounted controls allow you to manage your music phone calls and other onboard information without taking your hands off the wheel. And anything you might need is precisely where it should be like the available Honda Satellite -Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic and the updated center console with standard USB Audio Interface that powers and plays your media devices. With over 100 cubic feet of passenger space the CR-V can seat five adults comfortably with plenty of room to spare. The CR-V is equipped with dual-stage multiple -threshold front airbags side - curtain airbags with rollover sensor and front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System. And they all come standard.
