2009 Honda CRV Specifications, Pricing, Pictures and Videos
About this model:Honda has further evolved its successful formula for the compact CR-V by wrapping it in an even more attractive skin and adding a 1. 5L turbocharged engine that is both fuel efficient and powerful.
Increased ground clearance, best-in-class interior space and rear legroom, and available all-wheel drive make the CR-V one of the most versatile machines in the segment. << MODEL OVERVIEW >>Honda's fifth-generation CR-V was completely redesigned for 2017 and it continues to be a top competitor in the compact SUV landscape.
Outside, the CR-V benefits from styling that Honda describes as bold and sophisticated, with an aggressive, "windswept" front end and sculpted sides. Inside, the cabin yields more space than previous iterations, with 106 cubic feet of total passenger cabin volume, including 39.
2 feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 75. 8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat.
Underpinning it all is a chassis that allows the CR-V to be agile in its handling capabilities while still offering a cushy ride, thanks to a suspension system comprised of MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link setup in the rear. The 2021 Honda CR-V's are all powered by a turbocharged 1.
5L 4-cylinder engine. This unit produces 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque and is EPA-rated at 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway on front-wheel-drive models.
These figures for both engine options are only reduced by 1 mpg in the all-wheel-drive models. Both engines are mated to a continuously variable transmission.
Like much of Honda's lineup, the CR-V is offered in four trims: LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. LX models ride on 17-inch alloy wheels and feature LED exterior lights and a tailgate spoiler.
Standard features include automatic air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, four-speaker audio system with Pandora compatibility, active noise control and premium cloth seating, with a one-motion 60/40 split "dive-down" rear seat. EX trims add 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry with push-button start, automatic headlights with auto high beam and integrated turn signals in the mirrors.
Inside, there can be found heated front seats with an 8-way powered driver's seat, a six-speaker audio system with 7-inch color display and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, four USB ports, a power moonroof and dual-zone automatic air conditioning. Standard safety technology on the EX includes blind spot information, a driver attention monitor, rear cross-traffic monitor and Honda SENSOR, a suite of technologies that feature collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and lane departure warning.
The EX-L trim adds luxury amenities such as leather-trimmed seats, steering wheel and shift knob, 4-way power passenger's seat, a power tailgate, auto-dimming mirror, an eight-speaker sound system and SiriusXM satellite radio. Navigation is available on the EX-L.
Finally, the CR-V Touring features exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust, LED headlights, roof rails, automatic wipers, a hands-free power tailgate, wireless phone charging, a heated steering wheel and a 330-watt premium audio system with nine speakers. Honda offers numerous available options for the CR-V, these include a hands-free power tailgate, heated steering wheel, black alloy wheels, cargo organizer, all-weather floor mats, blue interior illumination, carbon-look interior trim, running boards, crossbars and multiple roof attachments.
Model strengths:Roomy interior; manageable size and maneuverability; smooth ride; impressive safety
Model Changes:For 2009 Honda carries the CR-V over with no changes, except three new exterior colors: Crystal Black Pearl, Alabaster Silver Metallic and Urban Titanium Metallic.
Model Overview:All CR-V models are powered by a 2.
4-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 166 horsepower. The engine has a drive-by-wire throttle and qualifies as a low-emissions ULEV-2 vehicle.
A 5-speed automatic transmission transmits the power to either front-wheel drive or to all wheels through an available all-wheel drive system. Despite the CR-V's all-4-cylinder lineup, acceleration is perky with a light load, adequate when brimming with passengers and cargo.
Honda has kept the weight down, with the use of high-strength steel helping to provide rigidity, and the car-based platform and independent suspension give it a much more nimble feel on the road than might otherwise be expected in a tall vehicle; wind and road noise are also commendably muted. Honda's lightweight Real Time 4-wheel drive system brings power to the rear wheels only when the traction is needed.
Inside, the CR-V has seating for five, with a nice upright position in front (aided by tilt/telescopic steering) and impressive headroom and legroom in back, even for adults. As is expected in this type of vehicle, the back seat can be folded forward (in part or completely) to expand cargo space.
On the top EX and EX-L models, a dual-deck cargo shelf adds more capacity while keeping enough space below for grocery bags. LX and EX models have a retractable center tray-table, while the upscale EX-L has a center console that extends to the back.
Safety is an area that hasn't been neglected in the CR-V. Electronic stability control--a lifesaving feature designed to prevent the loss of control on slippery roads or during abrupt maneuvers--is standard, and the equipment list also includes side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor, front side airbags and anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist.
The CR-V isn't offered in a stripped-down base model; even the lowest-priced LX comes with a very long list of often-times-optional conveniences, including cruise control, power accessories, a trip computer, and air conditioning with a filtration system. The top EX-L model upgrades to 17-inch alloy wheels, a chrome grille, and other dress-up on the outside, plus leather heated seats, leather trim, heated mirrors, dual zone climate control, a security system, and a 270-watt sound system with CD changer, six speakers, and XM satellite radio.
One especially noteworthy option is Honda's Satellite-Linked Navigation System, which includes voice recognition and a rearview camera. The system now includes a CompactFlash reader that to play music files such as MP3.
