Introducing The New 2016 Honda CR-V Crossover in Gainesville

April 1st, 2016 by

There’s an old adage that says “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This well-worn phrase certainly applies to the new 2016 Honda CR-V for sale in Gainesville at your hometown Gainesville Honda dealer, Honda of Gainesville.

Honda CR-V

A Stellar Award Winner

After all, last year’s redesigned 2015 CR-V won one of the automotive industry’s most prestigious awards, Motor Trend Magazine’s coveted “SUV of the Year.” The publication’s panel of judges pitted the 2015 CR-V against some of the best SUVs and crossovers in the world. Despite this fierce competition, the 2015 CR-V came out on top, earning praise for its ride, handling, responsive engine, and newly remodeled interior.

“After two hours of contentious debate, the CR-V’s stellar value, engineering, and safety features combined with the cheerful way it performs its intended functions earned Honda the win,” said Motor Trend.

So why mess with a good thing? Lucky for us, Honda didn’t. Primarily carried over from last year’s award-winner, the 2016 Honda CR-V continues the automaker’s winning ways by offering a capable, stylish, versatile, and fuel-efficient crossover SUV that handles and rides like a car, but gives buyers the added flexibility and cargo capacity of an SUV.

Whether heading over to the coast for a quick weekend getaway or just down to the mall, the CR-V gives you the room you need, the performance you crave, and the fuel economy that will keep more cash in your pocket.

Honda CR-V

Designed For Your Modern Lifestyle

The CR-V’s fresh and contemporary good looks are sure to make you feel proud with all those admiring stares you’ll get from your classmates when you pull up to the dorms to pick up your date. In fact, not only is the CR-V a handsome ride, it’s also the perfect car for UF students who love to stay connected to their high-tech world.

Take your hottest playlists wherever you go with the CR-V’s advanced suite of infotainment functions. Use Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, a handy USB audio interface, and compile your personal soundtrack through PANDORA®. Add the available SiriusXM® Radio and HD Radio® for even more sonic variety.

We all know that it is not a good idea to use your smartphone or to text while driving. Not to worry. Your new CR-V can be equipped with Bluetooth Hands-Free Link® that lets you both send and receive text messages by voice. But that’s not all. A colorful 7-inch touchscreen display allows you to control entertainment features, navigation and hooks you up to the Internet are so your life doesn’t miss a beat.

All this high-tech wizardry happens thanks to HondaLink™ Next Generation, Honda’s exclusive smartphone app that connects your compatible smartphone to the CR-V’s touchscreen display. You can even control HondaLink’s many function by using convenient steering wheel buttons.

The Capacity To Make Your Life Easier

We all want technology to simplify our lives and the new 2016 Honda CR-V from Gainesville Honda willingly obliges. You no longer need to fumble with your keys when you take advantage of the available Honda SmartEntry System. It lets you open the car’s doors and even start the vehicle without the key fob leaving your pocket or your purse. And you’ll also love the convenience of the CR-V’s available Power Tailgate. Just push a button and the Power Tailgate opens on command, providing easy access to the CR-V’s substantial 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd-row seats. Need more room for all your stuff? Fold both rear seats flat and you’ll get up to 70.9 cubic feet of total storage space. That’s a total of 104.1 cubic feet of interior volume; more than the Toyota RAV4. So go ahead and load her up. The CR-V can handle it.

Responsive & Fuel-Efficient Performance

Getting you to your destination in style and comfort is just part of the CR-V’s award-winning story. Where really gets fun is the CR-V’s lively and responsive performance, as well as its agile handling. Powering the CR-V is a miserly new 2.4-liter, direct-injection Earth Dreams 4-cylinder engine that generates a spirited 185 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque with a rated towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. So go ahead and take those jet skis or ATVs to your next adventure. Power is delivered via a new “G-Design Shift Logic” continuously variable transmission (CVT). You can also add All-Wheel Drive for exceptional road handling in a variety of conditions. Best of all, the CR-V puts gas stations in your rearview mirror with its stingy fuel economy. An EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway/26 mpg city are numbers that deserve your attention.

Putting A Premium On Safety

With our roadways becoming increasingly dangerous, safety is of utmost concern. Honda takes your safety seriously by engineering an effective arsenal of cutting-edge passive and active safety features that make your CR-V safer than ever, earning the CR-V top industry safety accolades. Because it’s hard to put a price on your peace of mind.

“Passive” safety features such as an ACE™ body structure designed to distribute the force of a frontal impact throughout the frame, a standard multi-angle rearview camera, and multiple dual-stage airbags with available SmartVent® front side airbag technology, you can also equip your CR-V with Honda’s latest suite of advanced “active” features called “Honda Sensing.”

These cutting-edge driver-assistive technologies include Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking, and Forward-Collision Warning.

From its stylish and modern exterior, it’s many conveniences, and its spacious interior to its spirited performance, excellent handling, stellar fuel economy, and advanced technology, the new 2016 Honda CR-V at Honda of Gainesville simply gives you all you can ask for in a crossover SUV. You are also getting Honda’s unsurpassed reliability and value. A recent automotive industry survey noted that after 25 years more than 75% of all Hondas are still on the road today, so you know that your new CR-V is built to last.

Plus, gives Honda its 2014 “Best Retained Value” accolade and Kelly Blue Book named the 2015 CR-V a “Best Buy”. Why not stop by Honda of Gainesville today and take the new, award-winning 2016 Honda CR-V for a test drive? We’re sure you’ll be singing its praises too.
