2011 Honda CR-V Review


The 2011 Honda CR-V is the best compact crossover for you if your decoder says this one’s name means “good value,” not “lame duck.”


The 2011 Honda CR-V is a virtual rerun of the 2010 Honda CR-V except for addition of an SE trim level to mark the final model year of a compact-crossover design that dates to model-year 2007. Arrival of an all-new 2012 Honda CR-V qualifies the 2011 CR-V as a lame duck. Qualifying it as good value is its roomy, well-designed cabin, fine handling, and a sterling record for reliability and resale value. Incidentally, “CR-V” actually is Honda’s abbreviation for “Comfortable Runabout Vehicle.”

In Indonesia in 2010 showed increased business automakers. A number of producers more incentive to launch a new type and variant to enter the market. So also did not want to miss Honda CR-V with the newest. Although the 2011 Honda CR-V is not expected to vary widely from model 2010, she brings to the table excellent reliability. A 4-cylinder engine 2.4-liter single remains the only option, however, front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are both available. In terms of transmission, limited choice - there is only one, 5-speed automatic. For crossover SUV in this class, the CR-V MSRP from $ 25K is a bit high. However, drivers are sure to love 2011 CR-V.


As a crossover SUV, the Honda CR-V has always done exceptionally well. Rated #1 out of 22 affordable compact SUVs according to U.S. News Rankings & Reviews in 2010, the CRV offers excellent safety, affordability and performance. IntelliChoice 5-Year Cost of Ownership rating for the 2010 Honda CR-V is “Excellent” across most of the trim styles available. Riding this wave of exceptional renown and good feelings going into 2011, are any significant changes expected from Honda?

The exterior of the 2011 Honda CR-V will not be significantly changed. The LX, EX, and EX-L models will return as either a front or all-wheel drive variant. The 17-inch wheels that were standard before will remain as well.


The inside of the CRV is very comfortable and functional. Controls are well-placed and nicely designed and the quality of the build is exceptional. Luggage capacity will remain impressive in this class at around 35 cubic feet with the seats up and expanding to more than seventy cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Full power features are standard on all trim levels as is air conditioning, cruise control, sliding and reclining rear seats, a four-speaker stereo system with CD/MP3 player and auxiliary jack and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

Base models of the 2011 Honda CR-V boast clean designs and pretty good materials quality. By upping the ante and upgrading to the EX-L, though, drivers can enjoy a decidedly decadent all-leather interior. A Special Edition, or SE, trim is expected for the 2011 CR-V and it should add additional exciting features. Space is ample, as is cargo capacity, making the CR-V a natural choice for families on-the-go.


When the power was increased for the 2010 model year for the CR-V reviewers cheered, but were still a bit disappointed at the lack of a V6 engine, which is what most of the competition offers. Honda’s 4-cylinder is capable…barely…but it is what it is and it doesn’t work miracles. The handling is nice and responsive as is the braking system.
