2011 Honda CR-V Overview
The Honda CR-V is one of the top selling compact crossover SUVs on the market today, and for 2011 the CR-V continues to offer great fuel economy and value.
The 2011 Honda CR-V is powered by a 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 161 pounds-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard on all trims, as is front-wheel drive. For those who need the CR-V to handle duties off the beaten path, Honda’s Real Time™ 4-wheel drive system is also available.
Fuel economy is a highlight on the 2011 CR-V, which is not something you can say about many SUVs. EPA estimated mpg ratings are 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway which add up to an impressive combined rating of 24 mpg overall. The CR-V competes against other compact SUVs like the Toyota RAV-4, Chevrolet Equinox, and Ford Escape.
Perched atop 17-inch steel (or alloy on EX trims) wheels, the Honda CR-V retains the distinct styling from last year’s model with a classic, elegant look. The rear tailgate is lightweight and makes loading and unloading the CR-V a breeze. With the 40/20/40 split rear seats folded forward, the CR-V boasts a roomy 72.9 cubic feet of cargo space so you can bring it all with you.
There are four different trim levels available on the CR-V: LX, SE, EX, and EX-L. Standard on all trims are power windows/locks, keyless entry, MP3/Auxiliary input jack, and air conditioning. The EX trim adds a power moonroof and a rear cargo shelf, while the top-of-the-line EX-L trim delivers automatic dual-zone climate control, heated leather seats, USB audio interface, and automatic headlights. Also available is Honda’s satellite linked navigation system, with an integrated rearview camera for safe backing.
Carrying a long list of standard safety features, you should feel confident riding in the CR-V. Front, side-impact, and side-curtain airbags, antilock brakes, and traction control are all there to keep both driver and passengers safe.
The 2011 Honda CR-V gives you the utility and carrying capacity of an SUV, with the composed ride and fuel efficiency of a passenger car. So why not get the best of both worlds, and go for the 2011 Honda CR-V.
