The 2019 Honda CR-V: Practical and Powerful.

Wanting to upgrade your family vehicle means opening the flood gates for what seems like an endless minivan and SUV options. You’ll be given countless options to choose from, ranging in: size, power, safety rating and price. So where do you start? If you simply need a vehicle that will have enough space for you and your kids that can get you from point A to B without any problems, the Honda CR-V is a good place to start.

Space Matters

This compact SUV doesn’t have as much space as a minivan or full SUV, however if you don’t need that much, why buy it? The space a minivan of full SUV offers can feel like a dream come true, but not everyone has room for it. Not to mention that driving around the city will bring a list of new challenges to those not used to larger vehicles. So if the larger options are eliminated, you’re left with a range of smaller SUV sizes to choose from and that’s where it gets a little overwhelming.

There are a lot of subcategories for SUVs, but when it comes down to it, you’ll want to stay within the compact crossover to mid-size SUV range. These models will give you enough back seat room for children’s car seats, but are still small enough for easy manoeuvring and good fuel efficiency. The 2019 Honda CR-V falls into the compact crossover SUV category, which is a nice mid-size model to fit those needs.

Inside and Out

Usually there are a few different models to choose from depending on how many extra features you need or want. The CR-V has 5 models and all have an IIHS top safety pick rating. An added bonus is that from just looking at the different models, you can hardly tell them apart. All sport the sleek, eye-catching, athletic body that Honda has designed.

The base model, LX 2WD, is a basic SUV but considering the weather conditions in Canada it’s recommended that you go with an AWD model, if possible. So let’s consider the LX as the base model for this. The LX is equipped with Honda Sensing technology and enough safety features to have you and your family covered, but if you’re looking for a little more tech and convenience, then you’re best to choose one of the two mid-price models. The EX-L comes with standard features including: heated seats and steering wheel, Honda Lane Watch blind spot display, a power tailgate with programmable height and a lot more. You’ll need to do further research to find out which 2019 Honda CR-V model fits your needs but above highlighted options will give you an idea of where to start.

Finding the right vehicle for your family can be time consuming, but you want to make sure that you look at all of your options in order to confidently choose the right one. For medium size range, the 2019 Honda CR-V has a lot of options and features to allow you to create the vehicle you need. Talk to a Honda dealer today to set up a test drive.
