2024 Honda CR-V Colors, Exterior, Engine – After trucks, sedans are no longer the most popular automobiles in the United States. However, the Honda CR-V crossover is currently the automaker’s best-selling vehicle outside North America. There’s no better vehicle for families looking to go about than the Honda CR-V, which offers lots of room inside, a fuel-efficient 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 190 horsepower (or 212 horsepower in hybrid form), plenty of luggage capacity, and fun handling.
The 2024 Honda CR-V is no exception for safety, which is critical to compete with the Toyota RAV4 and Mazda CX-5. But can an overall solid approach to the small crossover market truly compete with competitors that concentrate their efforts on being excellent in certain areas and adequate in others? Honda CR-V offered us an opportunity to test drive the 2024 CR-V to discover out.
2024 Honda CR-V Redesign
In our 2024 Honda CR-V review from last year, we spoke about the CR-new V’s standard 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, refreshed exterior appearance, and increased level of safety equipment.
There have been no substantial alterations for the 2024 model year, maybe because of the scope of these renovations. After four previous versions, the 2024 Honda CR-V will enter its fifth generation with the 2024 model.
It doesn’t help that the 2024 Honda CR-V -cabin V’s has a somewhat retro vibe. In comparison to a Kia Soul or Hyundai Kona, it doesn’t have quite the same funkiness on the interior, but its layout is reasonable and it seems well put together. Quality, soft-touch materials are used to construct the primary interface components. Gray, long-lasting plastic covers the remainder of the inside.
Even if it doesn’t look great, it seems like it will survive for decades, even if it has to put up with a lot of abuse from rambunctious children. The Honda Magic Seat is standard on all models, including the entry-level ones. That’s great news for the CR-V, since it’s one of its most important selling factors.
In the 2024 Honda CR-V lineup, there is just one engine option. Power and torque figures are provided by the car’s 1.8-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine. Depending on the model, this power is sent to the front axle or all four wheels through a CVT gearbox. The CVT works well in the city and on the interstate once it’s up to cruising speed. Compared to a manual gearbox, getting up to speed is a bit of a challenge. Bursts of acceleration aren’t good for the CVT.
When you slam on the gas, the engine revs up and the noise level increases. Except for the actual increase in speed, everything goes according to plan. There is a lot of work involved in getting the car’s speed to match the noise and revolutions it makes. This is an issue that many other cars with CVT transmissions have as well, so it’s not exclusive to those cars.
