2011 Honda CRV Specifications, Pricing, Pictures and Videos
About this model: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.

Model strengths:Very roomy interior; cargo versatility; carlike handling; ride quality; class-leading safety; resale value
Model Changes:After an extensive round of equipment and feature upgrades last year, including more power, a newly available Bluetooth interface, and a mild design refresh, the Honda CR-V is carried over into 2011 mostly unchanged.
The only major change is the introduction of a new special edition (SE) model that will slot between the LX and EX trims and include some but not all of the EX extras.
Model Value:The CR-V offers car-like performance and crossover cargo and passenger flexibility.
The 2011 Honda CR-V is one of the roomiest, most versatile vehicles in its class and qualifies as a good alternative to a minivan for growing families. Safety features are well-represented, and it stands as offering some of the best occupant protection in its class.
The CR-V also doesn't let shoppers down as a minivan alternative, offering a configuration that's great for growing families, with plenty of thoughtful, cargo-friendly touches.
Model Overview:The 2011 Honda CR-V remains offered in LE, EX and EX-L models; all are powered by a 180-horsepower, 2.
4-liter 4-cylinder engine and have a 5-speed automatic transmission. There's a choice of front-wheel drive or Real Time all-wheel drive--a system that sends power to the front wheels most of the time for fuel efficiency, and sending more to the back as needed.
With car-based underpinnings and unibody construction with weight-saving high-strength steel--plus a suspension that employs struts in front and a multi-link setup in back--the CR-V rides and handles like a much smaller car. As with most vehicles in this class, interior space and flexibility is one of the priorities, and the CR-V surprises with almost minivan-like versatility.
The second row is split 60/40, but the seatback itself is split 40/20/40 to allow an occupant in the second row while it's folded flat for longer objects, and with all of the second row folded and tumbled forward there's a flat floor measuring about 51 by 39 inches. There's also a center tray table that folds down (or on the EX-L an elaborate center console for storage.
On EX and EX-L models there's a dual-deck cargo shelf good for strollers, and all CR-Vs include LATCH child-seat positions in all three rear positions--allowing two seats to be mounted in the outboard positions or just one in the middle. The CR-V has also been strong on safety, earning top marks from both U.
S. crash-test programs, including a Top Safety Pick accolade from the IIHS.
The CR-V includes standard active front-seat head restraints, front side airbags, side-curtain bags, electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist. The LX is somewhat basic but includes most of the conveniences everyone wants: air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, power windows, telescopic steering and a CD sound system with four speakers.
EX models step up to a moonroof, security system, dual-deck cargo shelf, larger alloy wheels, steering-wheel audio controls and an upgraded audio system with six speakers and a CD changer. And at the top of the range, the EX-L gets leather upholstery, heated seats and a center-console storage unit.
Available as an upgrade on the EX-L only is a navigation system with voice recognition, packaged with more audio upgrades including a USB interface, XM Satellite Radio and seven speakers. New for 2011 is a special edition (SE) model that prices between the LX and EX trims and adds alloy wheels, a 6-disc changer and steering-wheel audio controls to the LX equipment.
