What is your opinion on the 2012 Honda CR-V EX-L
? Its market value ranges between $13,000 and $17,000, which is pricey but I think is deserving for an easy-to-drive compact SUV with a stylish exterior and roomy interior (
The vehicle is available in five trims
: the base LX, the EX, the EXL with navigation, and the touring trim. These trims are installed either as front-wheel or all-wheel drive
The all-wheel-drive CR-V can endure snow and other nasty conditions. Its system can sense a loss of traction and automatically transfer power to the rear wheels which helps you stay on course.
It is equipped with Honda's sensing suite of safety and driver technologies
Also, the vehicle is equipped with a standard back camera
that provides a motion picture on the vehicle's rear and other nearby objects. It can be adjusted based on three angles: overhead, normal and wide view
As for the engine
, its 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine is capable of providing 185 horsepower, which helps the vehicle's Continuously Variable Transmission perform well in the case of automatic transmission
In the interior
, the vehicle features a 7-inch, touchscreen display for audio, information, connectivity, navigation, radio, phone calls, live video and entertainment. Its steering wheel is mounted with control buttons and Bluetooth hands-free link.
For the seats
, they can be adjusted to provide more space for the passengers as well as the cargo. A total of 70.9 cubic feet of cargo space can be achieved if the rear seats are pulled down. Without folding down the rear seats, the vehicle can carry a maximum of 5 passengers while providing 35.2 cubic ft of space for cargo
The speed of 60 miles per hour can be achieved from zero in just 8.8 seconds. From a rate of 50 miles per hour, an additional 20 miles per hour can be added in under 4.5 seconds
For fuel economy
, it is usually 26 miles per gallon in the city and 33 miles per gallon on highways. The vehicle can carry a maximum of 15.3 gallons of fuel tank, which can take you as far as 450 miles before depletion.
Having said all this, I am considering buying a used one but I wanna know your opinions first before making a purchase.
