When Honda developed the CR-V in the mid-1990s, the engineers could not have imagined the success their new model would have. Creating a vehicle that walked the line between an SUV and a car was risky. However, Honda stayed true to its belief that the world was ready for a Comfortable Runabout Vehicle. What’s that? Have you never heard that term before? Actually, you have––you just might not realize it. The CR-V is the Comfortable Runabout Vehicle, offering innovation, state-of-the-art technology, and convenience since the first day it hit Honda dealerships.
Some of the design features of the first CR-V included a fold-away picnic table, a rear swing door that opened to the side, and a spare tire mounted on the back. By the time the third generation came around, those quirks were a thing of the past, and the CR-V began to resemble its sleek modern form. Now, almost 30 years later, the 2024 Honda CR-V continues to be a well-rounded choice with its elevated SUV-style driving position, smooth handling, advanced driver-assist features, and more. If you’ve not considered the CR-V before, now is the time.

For years, Honda has been promoting safety with its vehicles. This is seen in the brand's collection of driver-assist features known as Honda Sensing. The features offered in this collection boost your confidence while driving and give you the right amount of support when you need it most. Whether you choose the base model LX or the top-tier EX-L, Honda has you covered. A closer look at some 2024 CR-V driver-assist features can be seen below.
This system is fairly straightforward. It exists to help you avoid collisions with vehicles and other objects in your path. It uses a wide-view front-mounted camera to detect possible issues and alerts you using audible and visual aids. If you cannot react in time, the system will assist by applying the brakes to help you either avoid the collision or lessen the damage if an accident is inevitable.
This technology uses a forward-facing camera that can “read” the road markings to ensure you’re where you need to be while driving down the road. If the 2024 CR-V senses that you are straying off course, it will alert you with Lane Departure Warning and then activate the Road Departure Mitigation System to apply corrective steering and get you back on track.
Standard on all but the base LX trim, this system is invaluable when driving. It increases your confidence when changing lanes by helping you watch for vehicles or other objects in your blind spot. When you see the alert in your mirror and hear the warning sound, you know to stay where you are until it is safe to move over. It is an excellent support system in addition to using your mirrors.
There are more than a dozen standard driver-assist and active safety features for the 2024 Honda CR-V, with additional features available depending on the trim you choose. These include the features mentioned above, as well as innovations such as Rear Seat Reminder, a Traffic Sign Recognition System, and more.
The 2024 Honda CR-V comes with a variety of technological advancements, no matter which trim you choose. Standard features include Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Streaming Audio, which allows you to connect with friends and family and listen to your favorite music, all without taking your hands off the steering wheel. You can also ask the system to read your texts to you with compatible phones and phone plans. In addition, you get the convenience of a seamless connection to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
When you need power, you’ll enjoy 12-volt power outlets in the front console and cargo areas, letting you keep working on your laptop while waiting for the kids to finish practice. There are also USB-C Charging Ports throughout the whole vehicle. To take connectivity to the next level, you can access HondaLink, which allows you to stay connected when you’re not even in your CR-V. This system lets you access certain functions through your smartphone, including a Wi-Fi hotspot through AT&T.
Additional technology features that improve your driving experience can be found in the EX-L trim, which comes standard with a Power Tailgate with Programmable Height and a One-Touch Power Moonroof with Tilt Feature that lets you and your passengers enjoy natural sunlight and air.
All 2024 Honda CR-V trims come with bright LED lights in the cargo area and the front row, as well as push-button start. No matter which one you choose, you will find tech features that make even the longest road trips a bit easier. As technology continues to improve in the automotive industry, you can rest assured that Honda will advance with it, offering more and more perks that help you enjoy your drive.
The 2024 Honda CR-V has room for five people. As the driver, you can adjust your seat manually in the base model or increase your comfort with a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat, including two-way power lumbar support in the EX and EX-L trims. Either way, you can set your seat height exactly where you want it for premium visibility. The EX-L also has four-way power adjustment for the front passenger seat. Second-row passengers can enjoy the convenience of reclining seats to improve their comfort level even more.
Each trim has a folding 60/40 split rear seatback that increases your cargo space from 39.3 cu.ft. to 76.5 cu.ft. This is perfect when you need to haul sporting equipment, find a great deal at the thrift store, or want to try a little DIY. Speaking of space, your back seat passengers will enjoy 41 inches of legroom and 55.9 inches of shoulder room, keeping them comfortable during the ride.
Comfort is consistently one of the draws of the Honda CR-V. Many drivers like the ease with which they can access things like cup holders, storage, and more. Regarding convenience, high marks are also achieved when exploring the ergonomic climate controls and navigating the infotainment center. Overall, the 2024 Honda CR-V is a fun, comfortable, and functional crossover that more than meets the driver and passenger needs.
Honda’s Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System is available for the LX, EX, and EX-L trims of the 2024 Honda CR-V. The system is electronically activated and allows your vehicle to apply power to the rear wheels when needed, such as while climbing hills. The system also works proactively to help minimize loss of traction. Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System is effective in various road conditions, giving you more control and confidence. Whether you opt for the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System or not, you still gain driving control with Honda’s standard 3-Mode Drive system, allowing you to choose between ECON, Normal, and Snow modes.
Regarding fuel efficiency, the 2024 Honda CR-V has a fuel tank capacity of 14 gallons and offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 28 MPG in the city, 34 MPG on the highway, and 40 MPG combined with front-wheel drive and its standard 1.5L turbocharged engine.[b] On the other hand, opting to pair the standard engine with the available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System gives you an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 27 MPG in the city, 32 MPG on the highway, and 29 MPG combined.[b]
