LaFontaine Automotive Group —  October 17, 2014 — Leave a comment

Just when you thought the Honda CR-V had all your needs covered with the 2014 model, Honda surprises us again with the refreshed 2015 CR-V.

The new CR-V is such an impressive vehicle that it was just named Motor Trend’s 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year thanks to its exceptional value, advanced safety features, and forward thinking design.

Introducing the 2015 Honda CR-V

So what is it about the 2015 Honda CR-V that let’s it stand at the top of a very crowded list of mid-size SUV’s?

Let’s take a look…

Honda CR-V Design Concept

One of the great automotive success stories of our time, the CR‑V continues to define its class.

For the 2015 model year, the CR‑V gets a huge boost in sharp-edged styling, technological innovation, fuel efficiency and high-end appeal—all while maintaining its contemporary, fun-to-drive character and signature versatility.

From the most affordable trim level on up, every CR‑V provides an exceptional level of standard features that SUV buyers will enjoy—along with a heaping helping of durability, quality and reliability that’ll keep owners happy for years to come.

Modern, Aerodynamic Design and Styling

The CR‑V is contemporary and refined to appeal to people who appreciate a bit of sophistication along with utility. And with its substantial exterior styling upgrades for 2015, the CR‑V adds a large dose of “smart toughness” as well.

The sleek body design starts up front with a new grille, headlights and fascia that update Honda’s signature look. LED Daytime Running Lights provide a decidedly high-tech look on EX and above trims.

The new Touring model takes that direction even farther with projector-beam headlights.

The upper body has smooth lines and offers another step forward in class-leading, supremely efficient aerodynamics. The lower body displays a rugged confidence that says it can take whatever you throw at it. And in back, a new license-plate garnish works with new taillight lenses and bumper styling to create a strong, bold appearance.

What’s New on the 2015 Honda CR-V

Although it shares the sheet metal from the 2014 edition, the 2015 CR‑V boasts significant updates in just about every area:

  • Front and rear exterior styling has been upgraded for a more aggressive and upscale look

  • Suspension tuning has been reworked for a more refined ride as well as improved handling and greater stability
  • EX-L and above models now feature an automatic-dimming rearview mirror

  • Interiors — especially on the higher trims — have received numerous upgrades to create a more luxurious and upscale environment
  • All CR‑V trims now come with a redesigned center console with armrest, configurable beverage holders and rear-seat climate-control vents, as well as sliding sun visors
