Honda CR-V has the best safety features, great mpg and is very responsive.

I love the safety features and even though it is a compact SUV, it is very roomy and people in the back have a lot of room. The adaptive cruise control is great for trips and across town. It saves wear and tear on me. I have an all wheel drive and still get 32 mpg. It has a sharp turning radius and handles very well. The turbo engine is very zippy and has plenty of power to pass on two lane roads. I like being able to have my keys in my pocket and never needing to get them out to unlock or lock the car. I love the remote start. Also, apple play is included in my model and I find it a great advantage.

2018 CR-V Honda - I feel safer.

My car has driver assist I love it I feel so much safer driving. The performance of my vehicle is awesome I have no problems at all with the reliability. My car is comfortable however I would like to have more of a luxury feeling to the leather seats, and I would have liked more color preferences on the leather interior. My car has brake assist, Cruz assist, all of these features are completely sensible, well worth the extra money and to fill a 100% more safer on the road. The seats fold completely flat and I have a dual level split back. I love the push button to start the car. My LCD panel.

I love all the safety features!

First off I love the look of my car. It is sleek, it is a good size, and I love the black trim with the white/pearl colored paint. Performance wise it does not have the biggest pick up but I do not need anything that goes from 0 to 100 in less than a minute so it is just fine for me. I love all the safety features available including the light that comes on my side mirrors when someone is in my blind spot, the alert given if you turn on your turn signal or try to change lanes while someone is in your blind spot, the alert given when you are going faster than the car in front of you, and more.
