2011 Honda CR-V

When the Honda CR-V first appeared in 1997, the CUV landscape had a far different look than it does today. Then, the market offered very few compact four-wheel-drive wagon /CUV crosses, and the new Honda was the head of a very small class. These days, small crossovers are all the rage, offering the tall ride height and cargo carrying ability of a mid-size SUV. ample ground clearance and the sure-footed traction of all-wheel-drive.

Yet, while many of its competitors have grown larger and thirstier, the CR-V remains true to its roots, which may explain why it continues to top the compact CUV sales chart year after year.

There’s little pizzazz in practical. If you chafe in sensible shoes, a compact crossover may not be the right fit for you. If you’re looking to venture off-road, the CR-V’s part-time 4WD system is no match for the Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system found in the more capable Subaru Forester .

For 2011 a fourth trim level, the Special Edition (SE), is added to the CR-V line up. SE models feature 17-inch alloy wheels, steering wheel mounted controls for cruise and audio, rear privacy glass, and a 160-watt AM/FM stereo with in-dash six-disc CD changer and six speakers.

Driving Impressions On the road, the 2011 Honda CR-V has a well-integrated feel. The four-cylinder engine is right-sized for daily driving duties and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The only interruption to.

the quiet inside the cabin is some noise from the engine in high-demand situations, such as when the transmission kicks down to a lower gear for passing. Beyond that, there’s not much road noise and little wind noise, even when the moonroof (standard on EX and EX-L) is open. The CR-V has a cushioned ride that belies its size and handling is stable and predictable. Visibility is good in all directions, even to the rear.

The four-wheel-drive system is automatic, requiring no input from the driver, and shifts up to 70 percent of available torque from front to rear wheels as needed for improved traction.

Under the Hood

The 2011 Honda CR-V has a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 180 horsepower and delivers its 161 pound-feet of torque across a wider power band than previously. The four-cylinder engine is linked exclusively to a five-speed automatic transmission. The omission of a five-speed manual transmission formerly standard equipment on previous generation CR-Vs may be lamented by mileage maximizers, but Honda says that the demand for stick-shift CR-Vs among buyers was just too low.
