Around the city, the CR-v has proven to be simple, but energetic performance focused on comfort and efficiency. Under the hood is a four-cylinder 2.4 litres “land of dreams” to 185 horsepower and 177 lb ft of torque. Dream Earth technology is Honda marketing – speak to a set of technologies, including low internal friction to improve the efficiency of the fuel, the i-VTEC variable valve, injection time was revised and straight.
Along with the dreams of the Earth machine a new transmission continuously variable (CVT) gearbox is only available in the year 2015, the CR-v. Fans tend to think (figurative) CVT as blasphemy, but the CR-v transmission worked well with the four-cylinder engine. Together to calm down and not draw attention to themselves when moving at a moderate speed. Really loved the delivery right pedal and power, but accompanied by characteristic drones CVT at maximum speed.
2015 Honda CR-V AWD Touring Engine
Together, the new engine and transmission combo clean mpg advantage CR-v of about 3-4 mpg through the gasket. The fitting of all-wheel drive, an estimate of 28 mpg combined–or 26 city and 33 mpg on the highway. Front wheel drive model gets a mpg 1 extra in each category. Tapping a button on the Dashboard puts ECON the CR-v for the mode of operation more efficient and give better to kill them in the estimation of the EPA’s drivers. In this mode, the accelerator and the programming response best custom Flip CVT
Our Touring model comes fully loaded with navigation, all-wheel drive and available amenities. During my testing, I could just average 12.5 mpg. Let’s talk for a moment navigation system. Honda entertainment and information system is a bit complicated. It has a panel of two levels around a color 7-inch touch screen and the small screen i-mid-information at the top of the control panel. Swap system in 2015 of the CR-v “Honda satellite navigation links” for a new configuration of 7 inches, the “HondaLink”, that offers improvements in function that brought him to parity with the HR-V and the new models that fit. For some reason, however, the system still manages to feel date.
2015 Honda CR-V AWD Touring Display
I like the Welcome screen is displayed using large icons that are easy to read and tap while the vehicle is in motion, but I don’t like that I have to return to the initial screen whenever I want to change the function. If she was sailing and you want to quickly switch to the radio station, I have to jump out of the screen and then drill the audio menu. It will not be so boring if the system is not so slow in all HondaLink. There is a 1 second delay between that pressing the button and see the response you want, so a trip to screen home and return takes about 3-5 seconds. Buttons and the fastest in the direct access Panel will be a physical review.
HondaLink system has HDMI input and support MirrorLink, so if you have a smartphone that supports this feature, you can use the navigation on the touch screen instead. There are also two USB ports for connecting digital media sources and charge the phone. While I’m nitpicking button situation, I’m not fan of Honda moved to the navigation system HondaLink new capacitive buttons. The perpetrators of the most heinous is the volume control, which should be seized and taken to make a change, but proved difficult to fine tune.
2015 Honda CR-V AWD Touring Wheel
The exhibition i-mid touch screen top but not controlled by buttons on the steering wheel. The secondary screen is very sensitive to the input, which is the display main is much slower in comparison. However, in addition to showing the source of audio information or instant burn, mid i have no much do actually and largely superfluous to the 7-inch screen. The CR-v is equipped rear camera standard and must be LaneWatch with the camera. Position of the small camera LaneWatch under mirror passenger side that allows views of the blind spot of the driver when activated, turn signals changed row. Honda LaneWatch camera type of filling in the blanks and the blind spot monitoring system also comes in handy when parallel parking. The driver can also press a key on a stalk of the steering column to manually enable LaneWatch.
The Touring level adjust upper, LaneWatch joined with help driver Honda detection technologies. This equips the CR-v, with the help of the track maintenance system that informs the driver when the car of deviations from the line and can automatically steer the vehicle in line. It’s as if you’re going to lift the eyelids and a double chin, and came with a heart transplant. New Honda CR-v can use basic as of 2012 veneer, but the ute and interior changes significantly the mechanics.

Updating of material, joys in the future about new features as a sensitive and seven-inch touch screen to theft in the last Honda sedan. The new heart is the engine of “land of dreams” and transplanted the CVT business. This injected 11 torque percent over four produced 2.4 directly liter i-VTEC from 500 rpms less (181 lb-ft at 3900 rpm) and a peak of 185 horsepower (same as before) came to 6400 rpm to 7000. Smelling a welcome addition and for Honda fuel economy goals. EPA rated directly by 4 mpg in city and Highway 3, 26 and 33. We have 25 mpg vs. 24 we see in 2012 models.
The agreement, CVT is operating behind a Honda shift logic and conventional torque converter does the best job, so far, the CVT is painful. However, with mash on the floor pedal, he holds the record for the motor in a field while infuriating trans change the relationship. 8.2 seconds, the CR-v was 0.2 60 mph faster than ever before. And wider tires help to brake to a stop from 70 mph at the foot of the 171, eight less than its predecessor.

The second employs a nanny to watch the road and using the electric power steering to actively help the driver keep focused as much as 15 seconds up to 90 kilometers per hour.
While sipping coffee 80 mph, can move with the LKAS of buttons on the steering wheel and leave the car straight. Works well, but finally the curve of the road too sharp, or not contribute much, so the lights are dimmed to say that get their hands on the wheel. We prefer a sterner warning, perhaps the Horn or a voice shouted: “we are all going to die!” like a MOM when Dad directs our Rambler wagon with a knee to light a cigarette. Unlike mother, electro-NAG can be disabled. Honda sensors the Touring model, which lists at $33,600 with four wheel drive, full.

Until 2015 the CR-v switch to handle direct injection four-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT). It also receives a content rich and cool exterior styling, including the armrest Console front, rear climate vents, a 7-inch touch screen that connects to the LaneWatch the blind spot monitoring (EX and above) and Touring adjustment system level high technology with additional security.

2015 Honda CR-V AWD Touring MPG
When this happens, the CR-v has been updated to the year 2015, offering more mpg, interesting features and some style adjustments. Juice, in other words, subtle and sweeter than ever. The title of this year, the motor magazine of 2.4 litres of CR-v with a CVT (basically the engine transmission combo will get the agreement). The result is a little more fuel efficiency and torque.
