Though the invention of the SUV dates back as far as 1935, being a vehicle style that was initially coined by Chevrolet, SUVs gained prominence among U.S. consumers within the past couple of decades, quickly gaining traction among car buyers during the mid-'90s. Consumer requests for SUV-style vehicles began to overwhelm the automotive industry, people were going crazy for SUVs, and brands all over were hard at work to give the people what they wanted. Honda, always at the forefront of automotive innovation, was not only among those brands making new SUVs, but they were arguably the brand that refined it with the release of the Honda CR-V in 1995.
From the conception of the CR-V, it offered a profoundly balanced SUV experience, with front-wheel and all-wheel drive options that increased handling and maneuverability even in tough conditions, and its 2.0-liter engine that could get up to 126 horsepower made it quite powerful among the SUVs of the time. Additionally, its competitive fuel efficiency and affordability made the first-generation CR-V the standard for this breakthrough vehicle style.
The second and third generations of the CR-V, the former of which was released in 2002 and the ladder in 2007, improved the vehicle on all fronts, getting up to 160 horsepower in the second generation and bumping up to 166 horsepower in the third, the CR-V took great leaps in terms of power in the following years. The interior of the vehicle was updated, offering more space, comfort, and style with each passing year, and various safety features were added that made the CR-V the safest option on the market at the time. The third generation specifically began to implement more advanced technology and entertainment features, such as rear backup cameras and Bluetooth capability in its infotainment system, so music could be controlled without picking up one's phone, and hands-free calls could be made while driving.
The fourth and fifth generations of the Honda CR-V, which were released in 2012 and 2017, respectively, featured major cosmetic overhauls both on the exterior and the interior of the vehicle, now sporting a more contoured, sleek exterior and a warmer, more inviting interior. As far as performance goes, these two generations saw the most improvements on that front yet, with the fourth generation’s 2.4-liter engine getting up to 185 horsepower and the fifth’s 1.5 liter-engine getting up to 190 horsepower.
The sixth generation was released in 2022 and features some of the most modern tech available on the market today. You can find features such as adaptive cruise control and the Road Departure Mitigation System, as well as a variety of powertrain options, ranging from standard gas engines to hybrid options. Across its history, the Honda CR-V has helped set the bar for what a compact SUV should offer in terms of strength, efficiency, and style, and that trend shows no sign of stopping.
