And you will Crave the Honda CR-V ownership experience. For several years the CRV has been one of the highest rated for vehicles of similar size for safety and crash-test ratings. It's easy, economy friendly powertrain is balanced by good fuel mileage, roomy interior space and, of course, those outstanding safety ratings.
The luxurious interior is trimmed with leather in the EX-L model and comfortable, roomy seating. The redesigned CR-V is known for it's aerodynamic shape yet has an elegant feel. You'll also appreciate the lightweight lift up tailgate, again underscoring the fact that this is a very do-able SUV when you don't need a big, beefy size.

Go with the Real Time 4WD feature to navigate the topography of the hidden places in Oregon. It's available on all models, the CR-V LX, the CRV SE, the CR-V EX, and the CR-V EX-L.
