Honda made several notable mid-cycle updates to its popular sport utility for 2015. The CR-V gained an updated front and rear appearance, along with new wheels and various trim bits. The makeover also included a raft of new electronic safety features and added new standard equipment along with a 185-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This was matched with the CR-V's first continuously variable transmission (CVT) application.

The CVT works well in normal driving. Honda did a commendable job of masking the engine drone and rubber-band feel of some CVTs. If anything, this CVT does the opposite. It is so determined to keep revs down for fuel economy the CR-V can be sluggish at times. Additionally, some of Honda's traditional powertrain refinement is lost to noticeable vibration at idle and low engine speeds.

Best Version to Get
The best overall value is the EX. That said, sticking with the LX skips over the very annoying touch-screen audio system, but you'll give up a lot of niceties.
