The 2018 Honda CR-V’s four trim levels each have something special to offer our drivers in West Michigan. According to one in-depth review from the experts at Motor Trend, all four models have earned “strong safety scores” and provide “plenty of passenger and cargo space.” Like the rest of Honda’s all-wheel drive lineup, the 2018 Honda CR-V offers “quick acceleration and good handling,” allowing it to stand out in the crowded compact crossover segment. Curious drivers can take a closer look at each of the CR-V’s trim levels by reading on!
The CR-V’s baseline trim, the LX, is priced at just $24,150 MSRP for 2WD models,* and like the other three trims, it comes standard with a fuel-economy-boosting continuously variable transmission. Moreover, Real-Time All-Wheel Drive with the Intelligent Control System is available in every model. In addition to these advantages, the CR-V LX offers a wide variety of easy-to-use safety and convenience features, such as:
Fold-Flat 60/40-Split Rear Seats: In the 2018 Honda CR-V, it only takes a moment to collapse your easy fold-down 60/40-split rear seating and expand your cargo bay dramatically, from 39.2 cubic feet to 75.8 cubic feet.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: You’ll be able to drive with more confidence when you can observe your surroundings with the CR-V’s multi-angle rearview camera. The camera included in the LX offers top-down, wide-angle, and normal views, as well as guidelines. Dynamic guidelines come standard on the trims beyond the LX.
LED Daytime Running Lights: This feature boosts safety by making sure that you can see and be seen no matter what the time of day.
The Honda CR-V EX is priced at just $26,950 MSRP for 2WD models,* and when you consider all the safety, convenience, and entertainment technologies that become available here, it’s clear that this trim level is an incredible value. It’s also worth noting that the EX has been outfitted with a 1.5L turbocharged engine that offers even better torque and efficiency than the drivetrain found in the LX. The EX also features:
7-Inch Display Audio Touchscreen: This high-resolution system replaces the 5-inch color LCD screen found in the LX. With it, you’ll be able to customize the controls for all your most-used entertainment and convenience features.
Honda Sensing: The CR-V’s EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels all come standard with the Honda Sensing safety package. This set of automated technologies includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control technology, a Lane Keeping Assist System, a Road Departure Mitigation System, and more.
Smart Entry with Walk-Away Auto Lock: When you have your CR-V’s key fob on your person, your CR-V will respond automatically to your approach and departure by unlocking and locking the doors as needed.
Heated Seats: Drivers who choose the EX will be able to take advantage of heated front seats, as well as a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. By upgrading one step higher to the EX-L, you’ll gain a 4-way power-adjustable passenger’s seat, too.
Folks who’d like to enjoy a little more luxury and convenience in their day-to-day lives would do well to explore the features of the CR-V EX-L, priced at just $29,450 MSRP for 2WD models.* You’re sure to love the EX-L for features like:
Programmable Power Tailgate: In the CR-V EX-L, you’ll be able to open your tailgate with a button on your key fob, and you’ll even be able to set the exact height that it rises to. In Touring models, you’ll also possess hands-free access technology, which lets you open your tailgate using a motion sensor mounted beneath your rear bumper.
Leather Interior Features: Enjoy a touch of luxury with the CR-V EX-L’s leather-trimmed seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
Automatic Dimming Rearview Mirror: Save your eyes from the bright lights of passing cars using this mirror, which reduces distractions on the road while easing the strain that night driving places on your eyes.
Those who won’t settle for anything less than the very best are sure to find plenty that excites them in the CR-V Touring. Here, this compact crossover’s entertainment, connectivity, and accessibility capabilities all receive significant expansions. The Touring trim is priced at $32,650 MSRP for 2WD models.*
330-Watt 9-Speaker Premium Audio System: The CR-V’s high-end Touring trim comes standard with a 330-watt nine-speaker Premium Audio System. With this system, you’ll be able to fill the entire cabin with high-fidelity reproductions of your favorite songs, musicals, and audiobooks.
Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers: With this convenient feature, your windshield wipers will automatically respond and adjust to rain on the windshield.
Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System: Voice-recognition technology, Honda HD Digital Traffic, HD Radio, and more are all featured in the incredible Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System.
