The CR-V has been an excellent choice for families searching for a new people mover since the day it debuted, but the 2015 Honda CR-V changes make it an even more appealing crossover than it used to be. And that’s not an easy feat. By adding on a new trim level decked out with Honda Sensing safety technology and updating the powertrain to be both more powerful and more efficient, Honda has transformed the CR-V into an even better vehicle than before.
Honda Sensing Safety Technology
Honda has always been one of the industry leaders when it comes to automobile safety, and in the modern era, that means designing cars that are able to actively prevent an accident. It sounds like a thing of the future, and yet with amenities like these, you can actually have a CR-V that stops itself if necessary:
- Collision mitigation braking system
- Adaptive cruise control
- Lane keeping assistance
- Lane departure warning
These are part of the Honda Sensing technology group, and you can find all of these amenities and more on the new Honda CR-V Touring trim level. It is because of updates like these that the 2015 CR-V models with forward collision warning technology were awarded the highest safety accolade from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety: Top Safety Pick+.
A New, More Efficient Engine
Honda’s new 2.4L four-cylinder engine has been improved upon last year’s model by a wide margin:
- The new 2.4L four-cylinder is rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
- 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg and 27 city mpg.*
There isn’t much better than seeing both power and fuel economy numbers increase with a new engine, is there?
