2015 Honda CR-V Preview

What will change? A few exterior styling tweaks and a freshened interior are likely on tap for Honda’s popular compact SUV. Most new vehicles have a six- or seven-year lifespan. The current CR-V bowed in 2012, so it’s ripe to receive an update for the 2015 model year.

Why wait for the 2015 Honda CR-V: To see what changes Honda has in store for an SUV that’s wrestling with the Ford Escape for sales leadership in America’s compact-crossover class. Honda’s midcycle updates typically consist of revised front and rear fascias, a re-tooled interior with some new materials, and an updated features list. Among expected highlights for the 2015 CR-V are addition of Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot camera system and a seven-inch dashboard touchscreen audio display that the company debuted on the 2014 Civic compact car.

Why buy a 2014 Honda CR-V: To get your hands on a compact crossover that’s “just right” in nearly every subjective and objective category. It won’t blow your doors off with fast acceleration or sports-car handling. It is, however, comfortable, versatile, fuel efficient, reasonably priced, and comes with Honda’s reputation for reliability and strong resale value.
