When it comes to crossovers like the 2014 CR-V, we know that many drivers aren’t too concerned with the specs, but we think that it can be an important factor in a family vehicle. After all, how often are you running behind in a given day? And how easy is it to make up that lost time by taking full advantage of your Honda engineered powertrain?

Let’s take a look at just what makes the 2014 CR-V tick.

Plenty of Power—and an Efficient Engine

If you are looking to the CR-V as a new family vehicle, you’ve made a good choice. With room for up to five and plenty of cargo space, you’ll have no trouble taking care of the kids or hauling around their soccer gear or musical instruments when you need to. But there’s more to the CR-V than just its sporty yet spacious size.

The 2014 CR-V features a four-cylinder engine with 185 hp, and yet the CR-V 2WD LX with automatic transmission earns an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.* You get power and efficiency in one fell swoop.

And if you need more control from behind the wheel, go for the all-wheel drive system. It’s just one of the many technology perks available on the crossover. Here are some that you’ll find standard:

  • Bluetooth for phone and audio
  • Honda’s touchscreen infotainment system
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls
  • Built-in rearview backup camera

Take a look at how the CR-V stacks up to the competition and decide for yourself which crossover you’d rather drive home.
