Summer Adventures in the Honda CR-V
While winter offers plenty of fun activities, nothing beats summer in my book. Growing up, my parents instilled a deep love of what summer had to offer by keeping us constantly busy. Weekends usually involved long hikes or trips to the beach. When we eventually got a bike rack for the car, we’d take afternoon mountain bike rides.
Three-day weekends usually turned into camping trips upstate with the whole family. We were also sure to make at least one trip down to the city during the summer, whose hours spent trudging along hot sidewalks turned out to be most exhausting of all. I was never happier to get into an air conditioned vehicle than after a hot day in the city.
Essentials for a Summer Vehicle
A good summer adventure required a strong vehicle to get you there. The three things that my parents always looked for in an SUV were:
- Space, both in the cabin and the cargo area
Many families choose the Honda CR-V for that reason. Its five-seat interior has plenty of room to pack your gear for a day of hiking and plenty of room to stretch and relax when it’s done. It also comes with a strong safety record, making it an all around solid choice.
Comfortable Accommodations and Trusted Engineering
The 2013 Honda CR-V comes equipped with Honda’s i-MID system, giving you access to a wide range of features including:
- Bluetooth handsfree calling
- Audio streaming via services like Pandora
- Vehicle telematics
- A rear-view camera
- Illuminated steering wheel mounted controls for phone / audio / I-MID / cruise
Cargo Room doesn’t disappoint either with 37.2 cubic-feet (rear-seat up) and 70.9 cubic-feet (rear-seat down). And with a towing capacity of 1500 pounds, the CR-V expands your cargo options even more.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has also recognized the CR-V as a 2013 Top Safety Pick. The CR-V received top marks in all categories tested, demonstrating a strong ability to protect occupants in the event of a crash.
