Modern, sophisticated, and innocuous are words that best describe the Honda CR-V's exterior impression. Its design is straightforward and unambiguous of its purpose as a pragmatic family cruiser. In terms of features, multi-reflector halogen headlights, power side mirrors, and a roofline spoiler are standard. LED front fog lights and a power-operated moonroof come in from the EX model. The Touring is the only gas model that comes standard-fit with LED headlights while the hybrid EX and EX-L include this as standard. The Touring gets roof rails and dual chrome exhaust finishes. LX and Special Edition models ride atop 17-inch machine-finished alloy wheels, EX and EX-L models get 18-inch alloy wheels, and the Touring sports 19-inch alloy wheels.
A variety of aesthetic packages are available to the CR-V to enhance the exterior with items such as tailgate spoilers, gloss black grilles and trim accents, and fender emblems.
With an overall length of 182.1 inches, a height of 66.1 inches and 66.5 inches for FWD and AWD models respectively, and a width of 73 inches, the Honda CR-V is very similar in size to the Toyota RAV4. FWD models get a 104.8-inch wheelbase and a ground clearance of 7.8 inches, while AWD models stand 8. 2 inches off the ground and have a 104.7-inch wheelbase.
The crossover's curb weight ranges from 3,337 pounds to 3,413 lbs for 2WD models, and 3,455 to 3,569 lbs for AWD models. The three hybrid models share the same dimensions as the regular AWD models, but curb weights range between 3,708 lbs and 3,763 lbs.
