Consumer Reports Praises Honda CR-V in CUV Testing

We at Benson Honda are lucky we don’t keep a trophy case with all of the awards and accolades that the Honda vehicles we carry receive. If that were the case, we wouldn’t have a place to put the most recent praise received. The most recent Honda vehicle receiving kudos is the 2012 Honda CR-V as Consumer Reports put it atop their list with small CUV testing.

Consumer Reports recently gave the edge to the Honda CR-V while testing it up against Mazda’s newest vehicle, the Mazda CX-5. Even with the full-infusion of SkyActiv Technology, Mazda couldn’t beat out Honda’s crossover vehicle which has been a staple in the Honda lineup for years. This mention from Consumer Reports shouldn’t be taken lightly either, as many consumers rely heavily on what this publication has to say over a wide range of industries.

Some of things that Consumer Reports said about the 2012 Honda CR-V include the fact it is a family-friendly vehicle as it features some of the following; a large backseat, easy access, a plethora of cargo space and also provides a comfortable ride. Consumer Reports also stated that they believe the CR-V is more responsive and quicker than the Mazda CX-5.

The 2012 Honda CR-V is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that’s good for 185 horsepower as well as 163 lb./ft. of torque. Equipped with this engine, the 2012 CR-V is good for an average of 26 miles-per-gallon, which is definitely something worth cheering about.
