Unlike standard four-wheel drive, All-Wheel Drive (AWD) from Honda distributes torque to all four wheels, using a pair of electromagnetic clutches to freely regulate torque distribution between the rear wheels. Not only will AWD help you keep a firm grip on the road during severe weather conditions, it will also improve straight-line stability, provide additional power during acceleration, and enhance maneuverability while cornering.

The 2018 Honda CR-V has a surplus of space, whether you need it for people, payload, or both.

Road trips can never be too long with 40.4 inches of rear legroom, Bluetooth streaming, Pandora compatibility, a USB audio interface, and 12-volt power outlets.
Undoubtedly, passengers will love the CR-V’s comfortable interior and entertainment features, but drivers will appreciate its exceptional fuel economy.
