Significant Changes To The 2007 Honda CR-V For Honda Detroit - Articles Surfing

If you have been craving for the 2007 Honda CR-V as many fans have been, you can finally satisfy your craving. Honda made sure that this Honda CR-V would not only be fitted for on road travails. You see, the company also boasts that even if you use this one for off road adventures, the Honda CR-V would make the whole experience quite remarkable and unforgettable. For months, CR-V fans have been craving information on the all-new 2007 CR-V. Now you can finally satisfy that craving! You will find everything you have been wondering about this all-new crossover SUV.

Let's take a look at Body Styles, Trim Levels and Options


166 hp, 2.4-liter 16-valve i-VTEC engine, 5-speed automatic transmission, available Real Time 4WD system, 4-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control, 17-inch steel wheels, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), front, front side and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, daytime running lights (DRL), Maintenance Minder system, AM/FM/CD audio system with MP3/WMA playback and four speakers, MP3/auxiliary audio input jack, air conditioning with air-filtration system, tilt and telescoping steering column, conversation mirror with sunglasses holder, power windows with drivers auto up/down, programmable power door locks, power side mirrors, retractable center tray table, upper and lower glove compartments, under-seat storage bin, 60/40 split sliding fold and tumble rear seats, ambient console lighting, remote entry system

CR-V EX adds or replaces LX features:

One-touch power moon roof with tilt feature, chrome grille and rear license trim, rear privacy glass, security system, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, dual-deck cargo shelf, AM/FM/6-disc in-dash audio system with six speakers, exterior temperature indicator, 17-inch alloy wheels

CR-V EX-L adds or replaces EX features:

Leather trimmed seats and armrests, heated front seats, body-colored side mirrors and door handles, XM Satellite Radio, available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation with Voice Recognition(TM) and rearview camera, AM/FM/6-disc center console CD changer audio system with seven speakers including subwoofer (with navigation)

The Enhanced Body Design is entirely new. The exterior width has increased by 1.4 inches to 71.6 inches while the body length has decreased by 3.1 inches (due mostly to the relocation of the spare tire from the rear bumper to underneath the rear cargo area). The length of the vehicle minus the spare tire remains nearly the same.

The unit-body construction features extensive use of strategically strengthened areas with expanded use of high strength steel to provide high levels of rigidity. Improved NVH was also targeted and the new model features extensive use of the latest noise absorption materials to help reduce engine and road noise for an ultra-quiet cabin.

Sedan-like Performance, SUV Versatility

The CR-V uses a compact platform that features the safety-enhancing ACE Body Structure. It also provides extremely high levels of rigidity and an independent front and rear suspension for handling performance, which also results in space-efficient packaging. Comprised of a front MacPherson strut layout and a rear multi-link suspension, the highly rigid body and independent suspension offer an engaging driving experience rare for this class of vehicle.

Refined and Efficient Powertrain

The CR-V is powered by Honda's 2.4-liter, Dual-Over Head Cam, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that offers refined and responsive performance with good fuel economy (estimated mid 20's combined) and low emissions (CARB LEV II ULEV). A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment on all CR-Vs, and a traction-enhancing Real Time 4WD system is available.

The engine produces 166 horsepower and 161 lb-ft. of torque - a 10-horsepower increase and a broader torque curve compared to the 2006 CR-V. The power upgrade is attributable to a slight increase in compression ratio and enhanced valvetrain, intake and exhaust tuning. From a refinement standpoint, the Drive-by-Wire (DBW) throttle control works closely with the transmission for extremely smooth shift points and intuitive gear holding on hilly roads.

Overall, the CR-V four-wheel drive system is designed to best match the way the majority of driving situations that most SUV's realistically encounter. The fully automatic Real Time 4WD system (available) enhances the CR-V's all-weather capabilities when driving in rain, snow, dirt roads and sandy conditions - without the significant weight, fuel economy and handling performance drawbacks of a conventional four-wheel-drive system. For 2007, enhancements have been made to the system for improved torque transfer to the rear wheels - making the CR-V even better in rain, snow and sand.
