The redesigned CR-V gains features, space, and optional turbo power. While the base LX trim is fitted with a carryover 184-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, EX and above trims sport a 190-hp, 1.5-liter turbo. A continuously variable transmission is standard and works well with either engine. Fuel economy is impressive at 28 mpg overall for the EX. Handling is more nimble and sure-footed, and the ride is steady and compliant. Road noise has been suppressed, resulting is a quieter cabin. The interior is very comfortable and roomy, particularly the rear seat, and more upscale. Controls have been improved. An available 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility and Garmin navigation. Available safety gear includes automatic emergency braking and blind-spot warning.
