How has the CR-V Evolved Over the Years?
Looking at the history of the Honda CR-V in the United States only requires you to look back two decades since it hit showrooms in 1997. It was actually introduced in 1995 in Japan, though. Honda’s delay in releasing it in the States was largely due to the fact that similarly sized Passport was already for sale. The original Honda CR-V had loose inspiration from the Civic, with only one trim, a 126-horsepower 2.0-liter engine, a 4-speed automatic transmission, and available Real-Time 4WD. A second trim was added the next year and the engine was upgraded to 146 horsepower in 1999. The CR-V got more spacious for the second generation with a mid-cycle refresh in 2006. By the third generation, Honda had added standard keyless entry, an upgraded audio system, and wider front bucket seats. Now the Honda CR-V comes available in four trims and an aggressive new styling that helps keep it so popular.
