The 2014 Honda CR-V is America’s Top Selling SUV

The 2014 Honda CR-V hit the dealership in late summer. Building off the popularity of the previous models, the CR-V should still be the No. 1 choice for drivers seeking the midsized SUV.

So why do drivers love the CR-V? The 5-passenger SUV is known for fuel economy that reaches up to 31 MPG. The CR-V also has all the available options, so everyone in your family will find something to love about their CR-V.

When you talk about the 2014 Honda CR-V, you have to start with the standard features. No matter what trim you choose, the 2014 Honda CR-V will come with Bluetooth HandsFree Link, a backup rearview camera, and Pandora Interface radio.

Other standard features include air, cruise control and it’s easy to pull down the rear seats thanks to Honda’s one-pull fold flat rear seat.

If you have a family, the CR-V will easily fit five, depending on how big the kids are.

There are 10 different trims available on the 2014 Honda CR-V. So no matter how much, or how few standard features you want on your SUV, the Honda CR-V has you covered. The CR-V has options with all the features. Your CR-V can come with navigation, heated leather seats, leather steering wheel, sunroof, and even the option to have your CR-V read your text messages to you.

Another nice available option is the rear DVD Player. While everyone is on the long road trip, they will enjoy watching their favorite movie.

Safety is a plus as well. The CR-V has a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA). The CR-V comes with plenty of airbags, the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

Looking for even more safety? The CR-V has the option for Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System. If the vehicle senses wheel slippage, it electronically transfers power and hill start assist prevents the CR-V from rolling forward or backward when stopped on a steep grade.

Styling stays the same on the 2014 model. The CR-V comes in 9 exterior colors and 8 interior colors.

What others are saying:


“There is a very good reason the Honda CR-V has been the best-selling SUV for several years. Actually, there are numerous good reasons, as the CR-V offers a mix of practicality, comfort, usability, fuel economy, driver involvement, reliability and low ownership costs that simply hasn’t been matched by any other compact crossover SUV. If you’re in the market for such a family vehicle, the 2014 Honda CR-V needs to be on your test-drive list.”


“The 2014 Honda CR-V is as comfortable mushing through unplowed streets as it is circling the flea market ready to haul home some vintage antiques. Excellent fuel economy, a very reasonable price, and a near flawless repair record should seal the deal.”

The Car Connection:

“The raw space is laid out efficiently, and Honda fits it with the best rear seat-folding arrangement of any vehicle in the segment. And that’s combined with impressive back-seat comfort and good ride comfort in general. Open one of the back doors, and with one arm and a simple pull of a strap, in a very fluid motion the lower cushion tumbles forward into the footwell, the headrest angles forward, and the rear seatback flips forward, all tucking nearly behind the front seat, to a completely flat position. Cargo loading is also a snap, as the liftover height is only 23.6 inches. And up front, there’s a minivan-like selection of cupholders, cubbies, and cargo trays.”
