The 2013 Honda CR-V has numerous properties to it that most Honda enthusiasts look for when searching for a new automobile. The same holds true when comparing the Honda CR-V to other models of the hatchback or SUV sort. This article will highlight those comparisons and hopefully shed some light on just why this year’s model of the CR-V stands out from the rest of the newly released vehicles of this caliber.
The new CR-V comes with a very roomy main compartment with plenty of space for your cargo and extra passengers. The high fuel economy (potential at about 25/30 mpg) of this vehicle is also what makes it such a highly regarded model of its kind. With its jam-packed technological capabilities and family-oriented features, the 2013 model of the CR-V is definitely one to keep in mind; topping anyone’s list this year when searching for a family friendly vehicle. It also rated in top marks on crash tests – another sign of being a very family-oriented machine.
Unique colors are available with the CR-V, as opposed to certain other models of this type; the Equinox through Chevy or the Kia Sorento, for example. Basque Red Pearl, Mountain Air Metallic, Metallic Kona Coffee…just to name some of the few basic but exclusive colors that this model comes with. Couple this with its sleek, modern day design, and you have yourself a keeper of a car.
As far as the particularities on specs go, this car practically screams capable driving; especially since it’s manufactured through a reputable company with a great reputation on not only quality but security. Being a 5-speed automatic, it guarantees that anyone with driving knowledge can drive it even if they don’t have prior experience with manual transmission. It comes with a total seating of 5 which can be adjusted to less if the driver or other passengers have a huge load to carry.
As far as the 2013 Honda CR-V stands out comparative to other competition of this new year, it’s obvious that the CR-V doesn’t skim on safety, fuel per gallon per mile, and performance. In those respects, the CR-V is top of the line and can definitely hold its own on the road.

USAA has named 2012 Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid Coupe as a “Best Value” automobile. This means the vehicle is among the ones that give consumers the most benefits from their investments. The top cars are listed in 16 categories and the CR-Z was listed among the “Top 10 for Teens List,” which takes a closer look at the features parents care the most about, namely: safety, reliability and affordable insurance premiums. USAA is a leading provider of financial services to members of the American military and their families.
Listed under the “Coupe” category, the Honda CR-Z came on top for providing reasonable ownership and maintenance costs. It provides the best-in-class ratings of fuel economy according to EPA. In addition, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it the “Top Safety Pick” designation.
The car provides a value category of its own because it is the first real sport hybrid. It has low entry price and provides great fuel economy. It has a six-speed manual transmission and can be changed to sport mode with the push of a button. According to American Honda’s VP of National Marketing Operations, Mike Accavitti, it is like owning two vehicles for the cost of one.
Steve Thomson of USAA explained that the list was aimed at helping members identify cars offering higher fuel economy, lower insurance premiums, better safety ratings, lower MSRP and better overall reliability than other cars in the same category.
USAA evaluates vehicles based on a variety of features, including cost, reliability and safety. It has currently designated about 80 trucks, minivans and cars to its “USAA Preferred” rating system.
Honda of Pasadena also recognizes the CR-Z hybrid car as a great buy for consumers who want to get the best value for their money. More information contact Honda of Pasadena.
With the popularity of electric cars soaring, it is no surprise that Honda is unveiling a new concept electric car. Debuted at the Los Angeles Auto show last November, this car is a signal that Honda remains committed to building innovative green vehicles.
An entirely electric vehicle, the Honda Fit EV is designed to meet the commuting needs of an average city or suburban driver. Similar in layout to the FIT, this hatchback has a driving range of approximately 100 miles before needing recharging, which is many more miles that are usually driven during the day by the average commuter. Drivers are also given the option of maximizing driving efficiency by choosing one of three driving modes.
This Honda concept car will offer owners the luxury of a “connected car” by offering owners a remote control that will allow them to monitor the car’s charging status and remotely control features such as the air conditioning. In additional to remote features, each car comes with the Honda Satellite Linked Navigation System™ that allows owners to locate charging centers and receive roadside assistance.
The Honda Fit EV requires only 12 hours to charge on a regular 120-volt outlet and features LED headlights, bio-fabric interiors, and other eco-friendly accessories.
Displayed with a prototype charging center, this Honda concept car envisions a future where electric vehicles are common and widely supported, a future that cannot come soon enough.
