2013 Honda CR-V Boasts Stylish Price, Substantial Handing, Safety, and Efficiency

(2013 Honda CR-V Shown Above)

Starting at just under $23,000, the 2013 Honda CR-V is the fourth generation of the popular crossover. While not the speediest model on the market, the CR-V is focused more on fuel efficiency, boasting a combined rating of 26 mpg.

The 2013 Honda CR-V starts at $22,695.

n the fourth generation of its popular CR-V crossover, Honda has the chance to take this SUV all the way. How does it perform?

Honda CR-V Trims and Feature Highlights

The Honda CR-V is a five passenger compact crossover SUV available in three trim levels for 2013: LX, EX, and EX-L. All three trims come with a 185 horsepower 4-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive, and all feature an all-wheel drive option.


Standard tech features include Bluetooth, i-MID infotainment on a 5 inch LCD screen, and a rearview camera. Dual-zone climate control, navigation, and a rear seat DVD entertainment package are also available for the EX-L CR-V. Great fuel economy comes free of charge.

Honda CR-V Performance

The 2013 CR-V is handed a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 163 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s controlled via a 5-speed automatic and standard front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive available for all models. An Eco Assist system also comes standard, which tells you all you need to know about Honda’s performance mindset: the CR-V is built to rack up MPGs, not quarter mile wins.

Honda CR-V Fuel Economy

The EPA estimates that 2013 CR-V models equipped with front-wheel drive will achieve 23 city and 31 highway MPG, for a combined number of 26. Choose the all-wheel drive CR-V and lose just 1 MPG in each category for 22/30/25.

Honda CR-V Interior Highlights

CR-V’s cabin draws you in with its clean, attractive layout, though utility reigns overall. Like the exterior, there’s not a lot of flash to be found, unless you count customizable wallpaper for the i-MID screen as extravagant. But that’s OK, because you drive CR-V for its functionality, which is on display throughout most of the driver accessible functions- everything but the nav system tends to get a thumbs up.

Drivers should find comfort whether they adjust their seat position manually, or electronically inside EX-L trims. And don’t let the compact designation fool you: CR-V offers a healthy 38.3 inches of rear legroom and plenty of wiggle room for shoulders. The seats also have a one-touch folding option, creating easy stowing configurations. You’ll get 70.9 cubic feet of total cargo space, which shrinks to 37.2 cubes with the rear seats upright.

Honda CR-V Safety

Every 2013 Honda CR-V comes with 4-wheel antilock disc brakes with brake assist, stability & traction control, and full-length side curtain airbags. A rearview camera also comes standard, so there’s no excuse to put the back end into a shopping cart.

The 2013 CR-V receives nearly perfect crash test scores; NHTSA ratings warrant 5/5 stars overall, with scores of 5/5 for both frontal and side durability, and 4/5 for rollover damage. The IIHS agrees, awarding CR-V a Top Safety Pick.

Honda CR-V Summary

The 2013 CR-V is all about substance. Good handling, plenty of room, impressive standard tech, and some nice fuel numbers await, all for a quite stylish price too.
