Honda CR-V

  • Type: Crossover SUV
  • Fuel economy:

Safe, spacious and relatively fuel efficient, this Honda crossover SUV is certainly a family-friendly vehicle.

All models come with safety features including anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control, front-seat side airbags and side curtain airbags.

In addition to safety, this vehicle offers utility. Folding rear seats offer extra space when needed, providing 70.9 cubic feet of space. When the rear seat is in place, there's still 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space. And the big back seat and large doors make it easy to load up the kids.

The 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine puts out 185 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. That gets the vehicle 23 mpg in the city and an impressive 31 mpg on the highway with the standard automatic five-speed transmission.

There's also an intelligent multi-informational display, providing information on fuel consumption, incoming text messages and even what's playing on Pandora.
