Automotive Editor -

Honda was one of the first automakers to hop onto the compact crossover SUV train with the release of the CR-V back in 1997. Through several generations, the CR-V has steadily improved and maneuvered its way into the hearts of thrifty cargo haulers across the nation.

What's New For 2015

The CR-V continues without a generational change, but its updates are rather significant. These include a new front fascia with a revised grille and headlights, available power tailgate and 10-way power and heated driver seat, an 11% increase in torque, better fuel economy, a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), and newly available safety features like Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, Honda Lane Watch and Lane Departure Warning.

Choosing Your Honda CR-V

The CR-V lineup is a fairly simple one to get through, as there aren't too many drivetrain options to choose from, and zero optional packages to sort out. Under the hood is a revised 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 185 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque that mates to a new CVT. The only drivetrain option is whether you prefer front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

When choosing between front-wheel and all-wheel drive versions of the CR-V, there are two items to take into consideration: price and fuel economy. The AWD system adds an extra $1,250 to the CR-V's MSRP and drops the fuel economy by 1 mpg across the board, so only check the AWD box if you feel it is something that you truly need.

Then it's time to choose which of the four CR-V trim levels suit you best:

LX

The LX won't punish you for having chosen the base model. Standard features include hill-start assist, 16-inch steel wheels, a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, power windows and door locks, steering wheel-mounted controls, a four-speaker audio system with 160 watts, keyless entry, and power sideview mirrors. Prices start at $23,320 and rise to $24,570 with all-wheel drive.

EX

A step up to the LX adds key safety features like Honda LaneWatch, LED daytime running lights and dynamic guidelines for the multi-angle rearview camera. Also standard are premium items like 17-inch alloy wheels, a 10-way power driver seat, heated front seats, a seven-inch display for the audio system, a moonroof, automatic headlights, fog lights, and body-colored side-view mirrors. The EX stickers for $25,420 (front-wheel drive) to $26,670 (all-wheel drive).

EX-L

The "L" at the end of the EX-L trim level stands for leather, but the CR-V EX-L adds a few extra features beyond the leather-covered steering wheel and seats. Other goodies include dual-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 328-watt audio system with seven speakers, a subwoofer and SiriusXM, roof rails, and heated mirrors. The EX-L trim level is also the lowest point in the CR-V lineup at which navigation is an option. Prices are $28,020 for front-wheel drive and $29,270 for all-wheel drive. Navigation costs an extra $1,500.

CR-V Touring

The Touring trim level is brand new for 2015, and essentially checks every option box for the CR-V, taking the small crossover to a level of luxury it's never seen before. The standard features include satellite-linked navigation, 18-inch alloy wheels, Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, a power tailgate, projector-beam headlights, and a two-position memory driver seat. The base price for the front-driven CR-V Touring is $31,520; the AWD version checks in at $32,770.

CarsDirect Tip

For more families, the EX might strike the right balance between value and features. The EX-L is much more expensive, especially with navigation, but includes plenty of features today's buyers consider essential.
