Honda CR-V Car Insurance
The Honda CR-V has been named 2018 SUV of the year by Motor Trend. “Others might excel in certain fields, but others don’t put the whole package together the way the CR-V does.” Says Motor Trend’s editor, Alisa Priddle. Consumer Reports called the Honda CR-V “one of the more sensible and competitively priced choices in the small SUV class,” with excellent braking.
There’s just one model of the 2018 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 Touring model includes heated front seats, a leather-trimmed interior, and a moonroof. The new Honda CR-V also includes advanced safety features that can help you save money on your CR-V car insurance.

While the Honda CR-V is a perennial bestseller, critics have criticized past models for being a less than exciting drive. 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.” But Honda heard them and updated the CR-V with a turbocharged 1.5L engine, driving at an impressive 7.6 seconds 0-60 mph. The same as its competitor, the Ford Edge and 3 seconds faster than the Ford EcoSport.
