The 2015 Honda CR-V Specs Make it More Than a Family Car
Central Missouri drivers in the market for a new family car will surely appreciate the 2015 Honda CR-V for its specs—from the fuel economy to the safety features to the spacious cabin—but one of the best parts about this family vehicle is that it bucks the trend of the boring family car. A CR-V has a sporty and responsive feel to it, has practical roof rails that can let you load up extra luggage or gear for a weekend adventure, and can tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.
Put simply, the CR-V is an amazing crossover that just happens to also be a great choice for a family. Let’s take a look.
A Spacious Interior
We want to say that the interior of the CR-V has room for the whole family—and it does—but it does much more than just haul the kids around. The 104.1 cubic feet of available passenger space gives everyone plenty of room to stretch out, but if you need more than the 35.2 cubic feet of cargo space under the hatchback, you can fold down part or all of the 60/40 split-folding rear seat.
Need room for your skis, your snowboard, or your bike? Honda accessories make it easy to strap all of that and more onto the top of the CR-V.
An Efficient Powertrain
If you’re looking for a crossover with a fuel economy that can easily fit into the family budget, you’ve come to the right place, but unlike your average efficient powertrain, Honda’s 2.4L four-cylinder is peppy and fun to drive, too.
Under the hood of each CR-V is a 185-hp engine capable of 181 lb-ft of torque, and whether you have two- or all-wheel drive, it’s remarkably efficient:
- 2015 CR-V 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg*
- 2015 CR-V AWD models are rated at an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg*
Modern and Reliable Safety Features
Honda brought a new trim level to the CR-V for 2015, and it comes with some of the best in advanced safety features. While safety features are of course a concern for a family vehicle, they should matter to all drivers! You can find the following on the 2015 CR-V Touring:
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Lane Departure Warning
- Collision Mitigation Braking System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
