Drivers who choose the CR-V will be able to enjoy a remarkable degree of flexibility and versatility in their day-to-day adventures. This is true no matter which of the four CR-V trim levels you choose, as many of the features that will impact your carrying capacity come standard right in the baseline LX model.
Easy Fold-Down 60/40-Split Rear Seats: The CR-V sports a standard 60/40-split rear seatback that you can use to maximize your cargo space at a moment’s notice. With your rear seats in their upright positions, you’ll have access to 39.2 cubic feet of storage, and when you fold them flat, your total area will increase to 75.8 cubic feet.
Towing Capacity: The Ridgeline’s small-but-sturdy frame and drivetrain can tow up to 1,500 pounds when you need to! Drivers who want even more control over their payload can upgrade with a 1.5L turbocharged engine, which comes standard on the EX trim and up, or Real Time AWD with the Intelligent Control System, which can be equipped as an option on the LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trims.
Passenger-Accessible Storage: but the same can’t be said when you’re in the CR-V. When seated inside of the CR-V’s cabin, you and your passengers will be able to take advantage of multi-functional center console storage with a sliding armrest, a lockable glove compartment, door-pocket storage bins, and in the EX trim and up, a front passenger’s seatback pocket.
Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate: Upon upgrading to the CR-V’s EX-L trim level, you’ll receive a programmable power tailgate that even allows you to program its height! Those who upgrade one step further, to the CR-V’s Touring trim, will be able to enjoy the convenience of hands-free access technology. Simply wave your foot underneath the rear bumper to activate your tailgate! Traveling with your hands full has never been so easy.
Roof Rails: The CR-V’s high-end Touring trim comes standard with roof rails, which you can use to greatly expand your carrying capacity. What’s more, you can increase the utility of these roof rails by upgrading with available CR-V accessories. Your list of options will include cross bars, a ski attachment, and much more.
Cargo Security: The CR-V’s cargo bay has been outfitted with cargo-area tie-down anchors, cargo-area lights, and a driver-side garment hook that can help you protect your equipment when you’re on the move. In the EX trim and up, you’ll also receive a retractable cargo-area cover, standard.
The 2018 Honda CR-V comes loaded with advanced technology and high-end convenience features, but drivers who choose this model stand to gain a lot when they explore its available accessories. With these optional features, you’ll be able to stay more organized, increase your maximum capacities, and carry a more diverse array of cargo!
