What Makes the CR-V One of the Best SUVs of 2015?

February 5th, 2015 by

If you’ve been following our blog for a little while, you probably already know that we’re big fans of the 2015 Honda CR-V here at Bosak Honda Michigan City, but we’re not the only ones who think it’s the best SUV of 2015. The 2015 CR-V was most recently named the Motor Trend Sport/Utility Vehicle of the Year award, going up against 2015 Honda CR-Vcompetition like the Nissan Rogue, Jeep Cherokee, Toyota Highlander, BMW X5, and Lincoln MKC.

The editor-in-chief at Motor Trend offered high praise for the CR-V: “[It is] efficient, practical, and a joy to drive; the 2015 Honda CR-V does virtually everything well.”

And that’s just the latest accolade the vehicle has earned.

Accolades Piling Up

Whether you’re after a spacious family car, a fuel-efficient compact crossover, or a versatile work vehicle, the 2015 Honda CR-V has you covered thanks to updates like a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that earns the 2015 CR-V 2WD models an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg* and a new Touring trim level with state-of-the-art safety features.

Upgrades like those are earning the CR-V quite a bit of attention, and we love seeing that we aren’t the only fans of the CR-V. In addition to the recent Motor Trend award, we thought now would be a good time to showcase the CR-V’s other awards and praise:

  • Kelley Blue Book awarded the 2015 Honda CR-V their Best Buy Award** thanks to its spacious interior, high fuel economy, and versatile design.
  • Edmunds.com explained how Honda managed to improve on an already impressive vehicle: “The refreshed 2015 Honda CR-V gets a new engine and transmission aimed at further improving efficiency plus new safety, comfort and convenience features.”
  • Yahoo Autos loved the powertrain updates: “The engine, chassis and suspension are dialed in to velvet-smooth satisfaction.”
  • AutoBlog enjoyed the spacious interior: “Short or tall, thin or wide, drivers and passengers of all stature will find the cabin very comfortable and accommodating.”

That’s just the start of the praise critics have had for the new CR-V, though we think the best way to see its successes is in person, with a test drive.
