Founded in Japan by Sochiro Honda in 1948, the Honda Motor Company began as a motorcycle manufacturer. In 1963, Honda sold its first four-wheel vehicles: the T360 mini pickup truck and the S500 sports car. In 1986, Honda introduced luxury brand Acura to the United States market. The company’s best known for its small and fuel-efficient cars, especially the long-running Honda Civic, the Honda Accord and the newer Honda Fit.
About the Honda CR-V
There’s just one model of the 2013 Honda CR-V, but it comes in six trim styles. The basic 2WD LX includes some nice extras, most notably the intelligent Multi-Information Display (iMID), which includes a rear-view camera, Bluetooth integration and Pandora radio. The top-of-the-line AWD EX-L includes heated front seats, a leather-trimmed interior, and a moonroof.
While the Honda CR-V is a perennial bestseller, critics say it’s not exactly an exciting drive. Consumer Reports calls the 2013 Honda CR-V “one of the more sensible and competitively priced choices in the small SUV class,” with excellent braking. Car and Driver was critical of the 2012 CR-V’s performance: “When you pop out to pass and give the CR-V the boot, it’s going to need a lot of time to get up to speed.”
Honda CR-V Environmental Impact
As small SUVs go, the CR-V gets respectable gas mileage. The 2013 2WD Honda CR-V gets 23 mpg in the city and 31 on the highway, just a little more than the similarly sized Ford Escape. New CR-Vs include the Eco Assist dashboard display, which helps users adapt their driving to save fuel, and ECON mode, which configures the engine to run more efficiently.
There’s no hybrid CR-V yet available. If you’re looking for a Honda hybrid, check out the Accord or the new CR-Z.
