If you are in the market for a new vehicle, keep in mind there are many advantages to an SUV – including space, capability, and even visibility. With similarities to both trucks and sedans, SUVs are a popular choice for car buyers. You get to reap the benefits of added cargo space, sitting higher off the ground for better visibility, as well as smooth off-pavement driving that comes with a truck. You also benefit from the passenger space, comfort, and fuel economy that comes with sedans. For a model that won the 2020 Best Buy of the Year among compact SUVs from Kelley Blue Book’s and was named Best Compact SUV for the Money by U.S News & World Report for its 2021 model, a new Honda CR-V, is a great option to look into.* But, if you are still not convinced to head on down to your Atlanta Honda CR-V dealer, let the CR-V convince you itself.

Lots of Variety Means There is a CR-V for Everyone

With the new 2022 Honda CR-V, there is certainly no shortage of choices. With this compact SUV, you will have the freedom to find a model perfect for your personality and lifestyle. There’s a palette of eight different colors to choose from, some of which are available with all five trims.

As for the trim options, the LX trim is the base model for the CR-V. It starts with an MSRP of $25,750.** At the top of the trim range is the Touring, which offers Real Time AWD, hands-free access to the power tailgate, automatic LED headlights, ambient interior lighting, and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel as standard features. Other available trim levels include the Special Edition, EX, and EX-L. The three top-level trims also come in hybrid versions, allowing you even more freedom to choose what will work best for you and your style of driving.

Nothing Says Convenience Like Technology

The convenience of technology has made such an impact on our daily lives through the years.

With the ability to access your smartphone through the CR-V with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, you can safely make and take calls while driving. The CR-V also offers an SMS Text Message Function for all trim levels other than the LX trim as another option for communicating during your commute. But, don’t worry; technology has brought this Honda SUV more than just smartphone connectivity.

Depending on the trim level, the CR-V offers a five or seven-inch infotainment center along with the availability of the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition. You also have the availability of multiple charging ports. The Touring trim even has wireless charging to keep any compatible devices fully charged no matter how long your trip may be. With the available 330-watt premium audio system with nine speakers, including a subwoofer, tuning out the noise from the road with your favorite music won’t be an issue. You can even utilize your smartphone connectivity to continue listening right where you left off when you left home.

Performance on Any Terrain in Any Weather

One of the best advantages of an SUV is the availability of all-wheel drive. The versatility to safely drive on wet, slick, and uneven surfaces is appealing to most drivers. Less worrying about losing traction in less-than-ideal road conditions means a more enjoyable ride. The 2022 Honda CR-V offers the availability of Real Time AWD for all of its trims. This system electronically adjusts for you, helping prevent the vehicle from losing traction. You can effortlessly drive without worrying about the road you are traveling on.

Not only can the CR-V bring you to wherever your journey is taking you, but you can get there knowing that you are saving on gas as well. The two-wheel drive models are rated for 30 mpg combined, while the AWD models get 29 mpg combined.*** As for the hybrid CR-V models, well, you can expect an EPA rating of 38 mpg combined with those.*** For an all-around versatile vehicle, those are some of the better fuel economy ratings in its class.
