2015 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.
