The crossover segment is growing and has been for more than a decade now, but one vehicle that has been at the head of the pack is the Used Honda CR-V in Raleigh, NC. The crossover has been impressing drivers for years as it has continually reached a higher level of sales since its introduction to the world. Most often found at Auction Direct are the third and fourth generations of the CR-V.
The third generation not only marked the first time that the CR-V sold more than 200,000 models in a year, but some significant changes came with it. The back, side-opening door became a liftgate and did away with the spare tire. The vehicle was also made lower and wider. The 2.4L 4-cylinder engine on the 2007 through 2011 models produced 166 hp and 161 lb-ft and was paired with a newer, five-speed automatic. A number of infotainment upgrades were also made available.
In the fourth and most recent generation, the CR-V found in increase in power, reaching 185 hp and 163 lb-ft. of torque. The fuel efficiency also improved, giving drivers a compact SUV that could get up to 23/31 city/hwy mpg. In the 2015 model, the CR-V was upgraded again with the continuously variable transmission, increasing the combined mpg by 3. The interior was also upgraded to look more upscale and now comes with a number of new safety features, including Honda LaneWatch and a rearview camera.
Not only is the CR-V a reliable vehicle that creates a safe driving experience for the family, it offers affordability and utility. The base price for the Honda vehicle though low, isn’t an indicator of skimping. The CR-V of late comes packed with features, that when paired with the available AWD make the vehicle a swiss army knife. The HondaLink infotainment system gave the vehicle navigation, Bluetooth capabilites and iPod connectivity.
