If you have a family, then you already know just how difficult traveling can be. Even a short trip to the store can be a huge production. Just getting everyone dressed and ready can take 45 minutes to an hour, let alone trying to keep them pacified during the drive. For busy families who need to be mobile, the Honda CR-V offers the perfect solution.
More attractive than a minivan, we think the Honda CR-V should be your next family vehicle and here’s why:
Interior Features for Busy Families
Although it has the same passenger seating as a sedan (five), you’ll notice the Honda CR-V has a lot more room. Just how much? Well, for passenger volume you’re looking at an available 104.1 cubic feet of space. Now to put that into perspective, the Honda Civic sedan has just 97.8 cubic feet.
When it comes to cargo room, the Honda CR-V is hardly compact. With 70.9 cubic feet (37.2 cubic feet behind the second row), you’ll have plenty of room to pack in sports equipment, science projects, supplies for the garden, luggage and whatever else life throws your way.
But one of the best features of the Honda CR-V is the available power tailgate. With just the simple push of a button, you can automatically open or close the tailgate. That leaves your hands free to carry groceries or a screaming toddler.
Innovative Safety Features
Ever since you hung up your leather jacket and traded in your motorcycle for something a little more practical, safety has played a big factor in your choice of vehicle. The Honda CR-V provides exceptional peace of mind, thanks to an arsenal of advanced safety features. This includes active safety features like a standard multi-angle rearview camera along with brake assist, a tire pressure monitoring system and Vehicle Stability Assist™.
Meanwhile, drivers are in love with the available Honda Sensing™ suite of driver assistive technology features, which help take safety and accident avoidance to the next level. Included in Honda Sensing™ are:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
Thanks to these safety features and more, the 2016 Honda CR-V was named one of the 16 Best Family Cars of 2016 by Kelley Blue Book’s Kbb.com1. Not to mention, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2016 Honda CR-V a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.2
Incredibly Fun to Drive
What’s better than driving a family vehicle? Feeling like you’re not driving one. To help you with that, the Honda CR-V features a powerful direct-injection engine which packs in 185 horsepower. There are also two-wheel and all-wheel drive options available, so you can decide which traction control experience is right for you.
Are you a family that only needs to commute to and from school and trips to the doctors? Or do you plan on taking the kids camping and get off the grid for a while? Either way, the Honda CR-V provides the perfect drivetrain to fit your needs.
