What Our Members Are Saying about the Available Features of the 2015 Honda CR-V

2015 Honda CR-V Available Features: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2015 4dr SUV 185-horsepower 2.4L I4
CVT AWD
Honda has added a lot of neat safety features, such as forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. However, Honda not only reserved these for its top Touring edition, it failed to anticipate demand for that trim. As a result, the Touring models sell for near sticker and have multi-month waits. In contrast, negotiation room exists for lower trim levels. The safety features should be optional in the EX-L trim (perhaps as an intermediate trim level), as not everyone will want the 18" wheels and navigation system also included in the Touring trim.
