The New Honda CR-V in Chula Vista


Discover Why Traveling SoCal Families Prefer the 2018 Honda CR-V for the Greater San Diego Drive

As ample room, modern features, superb fuel economy ratings, and go-anywhere reliability become priorities for growing families, new compact SUVs are beginning to gain ground on the everyday, tried-and-true mid-size family sedan. But none pull ahead with a full slate of options ideal for anything the Chula Vista area can send its way quite like the new Honda CR-V. In its celebrated gamut of trims ranging from the anything-but-base LX through midrange EX and EX-L to fully loaded Touring, it's all the whole gang could hope to find in a new crossover ready for the Southern California trip.


The CR-V Offers Seating and Space

For one, with more than 100 cubic feet of passenger space for up to five to sprawl out -- among the roomiest in the class -- everyone can pile in and hit the road. Seating comes available in leather, heated, and power-adjustable, with lumbar support for the driver, offering the height of comfort. Taking along a boatload of gear for the outing? The new CR-V delivers up to a sizable 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space with 60/40-split rear seating collapsed, likewise offering a retractable cargo-area cover in select trims to stow it all snugly. 

You can even hitch up a trailerful, too, thanks to a 1,500-pound towing capacity. A tall 7.8 inches of ground clearance makes ferrying everyone and everything over the San Diego River and through the proverbial woods to El Cajon a matter of course.

The CR-V Was Built to Entertain and Guide You

For entertainment, a 160-watt, four-speaker, 5-inch LCD infotainment system comes standard in CR-V LX, complete with Bluetooth tech and USB connectivity for device connection and Pandora support for expanded listening options. 180-watt, six- and eight-speaker, 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen variants present in higher trims, and they feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, letting you control your smartphone from the dash, as well as access to a range of SiriusXM satellite radio programming. Go top-of-the-line, and so does your enjoyment for the duration. The new CR-V Touring builds in not only a symphonic 330-watt, nine-speaker premium audio system and an HD Radio but also a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System&#trade; with voice recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic for directional convenience around National City.

 The CR-V Gives Power and Control Back to the Driver

Best of all, the new 2018 CR-V is both the capable and safe bet. Bring one of the compact crossover's two engine options to life -- a spirited 184-horsepower DOHC i-VTEC® inline-four or the turbocharged 190-horsepower I4 -- and you'll see what we mean. Its pairing with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) promises ease of shifting, and with a Sport Mode and MacPherson strut front and multi-link double-wishbone rear suspension in the mix, you can count on agility responsiveness for the highway cruise as well as some extra pep. 

Honda even offers the all-terrain abilities of an available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System;  as well as optional Honda Sensing® driver-assist technology. The latter provides intelligent feedback to help you do everything from safely distance yourself from other vehicles to remain responsibly in-lane to avoid a collision. Likewise, a blind-spot monitoring system with cross-traffic monitor is available to enhance your situational awareness.
