Honda released pricing of their new CR-V yesterday, which remains largely unchanged with a base price of $22,295.
While everyone enjoys a better car, they don’t always like paying for it. That’s OK if you’ve been holding out for the latest model because Honda stayed more-or-less put on their price even though most models get between $400 and $1000 in extras over the 2011 model.
Among those improvements, consumers can look forward to a host of improved standard features like bluetooth cellphone connectivity, a multi-angle rear camera with guidelines and an intelligent Multi Information Display. All CR-Vs also come standard with the ability to pair with compatible cell phones to read text messages aloud.
Under the hood, you’ll find more horsepower (185) and torque (163 ft-lbs) out of the 2.4-liter inline four, and an improved all-wheel drive system on the models taking advantage of it. Both AWD and two-wheel drive versions get mildly improved gas mileage. As we explained in our review, the CR-V may not be full of flashy tech, but its unequaled practicality makes it a segment leader in its own right.
