2014 Honda CR-V
Mechanicstown drivers have long been thrilled with the Honda CR-V, and it’s been a top-selling SUV for a few years now. This is because of the CR-V’s reputation for efficiency, affordability, and practicality. Whether you need a spacious vehicle for yourself or your family, the 2014 Honda CR-V delivers, and the reviews reflect that. The 2014 Honda CR-V reviews are quite positive. You can see the vehicle for yourself at Middletown Honda — in the meantime, let’s take a look at what some of the critics are saying.


One of the best resources for consumer car reviews for both new and used vehicles, Edmunds has been very vocal about how much they like about the CR-V. For the 2014 model, they said, “the CR-V offers a mix of practicality, comfort, usability, fuel economy, driver involvement, reliability and low ownership costs that simply hasn’t been matched by any other compact crossover SUV.”

That’s a lot of great praise. Looking closer at fuel economy, the 2014 Honda CR-V with the five-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive is rated at 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.* It’s also quite sporty, with an available 185 hp and 163 lb-ft of torque.

U.S. News & World Report

U.S. News & World Report takes account of every review for each vehicle, along with other factors, and then ranks them. They’ve named the CR-V Best Compact SUV for the Money, and ranked it number one for Affordable Compact SUVs, Affordable SUVS with 2 Rows, and Affordable Crossover SUVs.

The 2014 Honda CR-V LX has a suggested starting price of $22,945. Base models come with quite a few great features, including Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, and Pandora internet radio compatibility.

Consumer Guide

Another favorable review of the 2014 Honda CR-V from Consumer Guide said the “CR-V continues to excel for its ‘just-right’ blend of comfort, refinement, passenger room, and cargo versatility.” There’s quite a bit of cargo space in the CR-V. With all the seats up, there’s 37.2 cubic feet of space in the back, and there are many storage spaces placed throughout the vehicle. If you lower the back seats with the auto-fold feature, there’s a total 70.9 cubic feet of space.
