Unlike standard four-wheel drive, All-Wheel Drive (AWD) from Honda distributes torque to all four wheels, using a pair of electromagnetic clutches to freely regulate torque distribution between the rear wheels. Not only will AWD help you keep a firm grip on the road during severe weather conditions, it will also improve straight-line stability, provide additional power during acceleration, and enhance maneuverability while cornering.
Honda Sensing™ is a wealth of driver-assistive technologies that help with visible, and not-so-visible challenges out there on the road. These safety features include Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Stay in your lane and stay on the road with Honda Sensing.™

Although most crossover SUVs seem to fight the age-old battle of substance versus style, the 2018 Honda CR-V blends the two perfectly with intelligent engineering, intuitive safety, and contemporary design.
Facing front, the 2018 CR-V has a wide stance and Active Shutter Grille that not only lend themselves to an athletic appearance, but also increase aerodynamics for added efficiency. A fin-like roof-mounted antenna and calculated body lines create a dynamic side profile, while the rear fascia captivates with a roofline spoiler and expanded LED taillights that stretch vertically and horizontally along the outer edges of the vehicle. On EX models and above, the CR-V adds elements that contribute to both function and form, including:
For a little extra sport, CR-V Touring models receive dual chrome exhaust finishers.
Refusing to trade efficiency for power, the 2018 Honda CR-V employs a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and Eco Assist System to maintain a remarkable, EPA-estimated 27 mpg city / 33 mpg highway / 29 mpg combined (EX AWD and above). But don’t be fooled by these fuel ratings. The CR-V still accelerates with ease thanks to either a spirited 184-hp inline-4 or a 190-hp turbocharged powerplant.
Step inside the 2018 Honda CR-V and you’ll quickly notice a generous amount of interior space for both occupants and cargo. Family outings become stress-free with seating for up to five, a maximum passenger volume of 105.9 cubic feet, and 40.4 inches of backseat legroom. Behind the rear seats there is ample room for everyone’s gear at 39.2 cubic feet, but if the situation calls for more cargo area the 60/40 split rear seats can fold down for an additional 75.8 cubic feet of flat space. Witness all that the 2018 CR-V has to offer with a test drive from any West Michigan Honda Dealers location today.
The Honda CR-V is a perennial award winner in the crossover SUV category, and last year’s model took home a bounty of accolades, including:
With the 2018 CR-V remaining mostly unchanged in crucial areas like efficiency, safety, and practicality, more awards are sure to come for this year’s crossover.
