As a mom, you do whatever it takes to get the job done, and try to look “flawless” while doing it. (Thanks for the pressure Beyonce’!) For those of us who don’t have a private chef, plane and chauffeur, there’s still hope. The Honda CR-V “keeps it cute”, and carts the kids around safely. Here are a few reason’s this simple, unassuming, flawlessly pragmatic SUV cannot be ignored.
A closer look at the Honda CR-V
1. Goes with Sequins
The 2015 CR-V AWD Touring experienced a bit of a sprucing up. ‘Amazing how much a new set of headlights can make difference. (Ask any mother whose ever breastfed and she’ll tell you, aside from a year supply of lanolin, a new set of “headlights” is at the top of her wish list!) In addition to the projector beam headlights, the Honda upgraded the CRV to with LED daytime running lamps. These additions add a trendy, yet formal look and feel to the vehicle. Welcome to the 2010’s CRV!
2. Max Factor
Rumored to stand for “Compact Recreational Vehicle”, the CR-V is true to its name. However, unlike most compacts, this vehicle has somewhat of a roomy feel WITHOUT compromising cargo space. Perfect for a small family with 2 kids or less, there is room for everyone with seating for up to 5 people.
3. Civic Minded
Loosely based on the Honda Civic, the 2015 CR-V AWD Touring throws a nod to it’s sister from a mister by giving the people what they want. The “Civic Minded” CR-V comfortably seats the kids, has more than ample cargo space and most importantly, it’s the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) 2015 Top Safety pick.

Well, with the CR-V’s CVT rest assured that more power will be delivered more quickly, and with fuel economy made a priority.
