The Honda CR-V is part of the highly competitive compact crossover SUV segment, yet it still manages to easily stand out from the other models in New Jersey. The CR-V is known for its fun-to-drive feel and fuel efficiency, both of which are enhanced by the latest model’s turbocharged engine. Of course, the CR-V is also highly versatile and spacious despite being a compact vehicle. When you fold down the rear seats, the CR-V gives you 75.8 cubic feet of storage. Even with all five seats occupied, you have 39.2 cubes behind the second row.
Speaking of the second row, adults will find it spacious and comfortable, even on long road trips. The cabin is actually comfortable from any seating position with available leather trim, heated front seats, and 12-way power adjustment for the driver. The Honda CR-V is also among the safest models in its class, courtesy of the available Honda Sensing suite with its advanced features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and Road Departure Mitigation System.
The 2019 Honda CR-V came into the new model year with few changes to speak of from the previous model year, but that’s not a bad thing when the previous model year was so well-endowed! The 2019 CR-V continues to excel in all of the key areas that crossover shoppers prioritize most. Space, safety, features, and value are just a few of its major offerings, and if that’s not enough, remind yourself that the CR-V is a Honda, and that distinction alone brings with it a whole slew of advantages in the realms of quality and reliability.
Available in LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, the 2019 CR-V is packed with cutting-edge technology and comfort amenities that will make every drive more connected, secure, and enjoyable for you and all of your passengers.

The Honda CR-V didn’t hit the American market until 1997, two years after arriving in Japan. The CR-V was an immediate success, leading to Honda dropping their Passport, a similarly-sized model made by Isuzu. The CR-V had loose influences from the Civic and was geared towards young families. It had a unibody construction, 126 horsepower, and four-wheel independent suspension plus available Real-Time AWD. The 2002 CR-V got a new suspension and body for the second generation along with a new 160-horsepower engine with i-VTEC variable valve timing for efficiency. The third generation arrived as a 2007 model year with a more quiet and comfortable cabin, a new rigid body design, and a fully independent suspension. It actually got shorter overall, although it also got wider and more spacious overall.
