The Honda CR-V is a unit-body SUV, which significantly contributes to the vehicle’s ride quality, fuel efficiency and safety performance.
A dynamic forward cabin blends the 2011 CR-V’s upscale body lines into a sculpted lower body with a rugged appearance and durable cladding. A two-tier grille and a side profile with an arched-shaped  window and chrome trim accent the CR-V’s distinctive and upscale presence.
The 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine has a power output of 180 horsepower. The CR-V is available in 2WD and 4WD.
A sliding 60/40 split second row seat with a 40/20/40 folding seatback offers cargo versatility by sliding forward to increase cargo space, folding forward to accommodate long objects, or folding and tumbling forward to create a large, flat cargo area. Maximum possible cargo volume measures 72.9 cu-ft.
The AM/FM/CD audio system integrates a dual tone gray/black color scheme with blue backlighting. The CR-V EX-L has a USB Audio Interface2 for direct access to music files on compatible devices using the vehicle’s existing controls.
Trim panel sections along the steering wheel, gear selector, upper glove box and center console brighten the overall interior color theme. Models equipped with an ivory interior feature a more passenger-friendly darker brown carpet instead of light brown.
For comfort, the driver’s and front passenger’s center folding armrests are wide. The front row storage zones offer functionality with areas designed to accommodate items as large as a handbag between the seats to items as small as a mobile phones and music players on the retractable center tray table.
