Enhanced Design with Improved Style and Premium Features

The increased body width allows the seats to be wider and more supportive,
and a newly-designed folding center tray table not only provides the prerequisite
beverage holders and sub-tray, but EX and above models also provide an additional
12V power outlet and auxiliary audio jack. CR-V models outfitted with a leather
interior (EX-L) now provide a spacious multi-function center console. On EX
and above models, a dual-deck cargo shelf provides additional storage options
in the cargo area while providing enough clearance underneath for grocery bags
or items such as a folded stroller. A sliding underseat storage bin exists under
the front passenger seat.

The latest generation of the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System is available
on the CR-V EX-L trim level and features a 6.5-inch display whose opening and
closing motion is operated by an electric motor for access to the internal single-disc
CD player and a digital audio card reader that can play MP3 and WMA files from
CompactFlash® cards (an external 6-disc CD changer is housed in the center
console). The navigation system features more than 6 million points of interest
and the voice recognition is capable of recognizing and inputting numbers, street
names and cities, along with controlling the audio system.

For 2007, all audio systems are more powerful with at least 160 watts. As
much as 270 Watts and seven speakers including a subwoofer are available on
the EX-L with Navigation. Auxiliary audio input jacks are standard equipment
on all trim levels, allowing for portable music device playback through the
CR-V's speakers. XM® Satellite Radio is standard on the EX-L. The
LX trim level has a four-speaker 160-watt audio system with a single-disc CD
player. All CR-V audio systems have MP3/WMA CD playback capability and Speed-Sensitive
Volume Control (SVC) that automatically adjusts the volume based on vehicle

Ease of Vehicle Entry and Exit

As a benefit from the introduction of the all-new CR-V platform, the side
sill step-in height is lower by 1.3 inches (32 mm) so that ingress and egress
feels more sedan-like. The lower side sill has larger door openings lower to
the ground, so getting in and out of the CR-V is easy and natural. In addition,
the seat cushion's height approximates the hip height of an average height adult,
so passengers do not have to "climb" in and out of the seats. Door openings
feature a durable, non-skid plastic surface that provides a sure footing for
standing when accessing the roof. Additionally, the tailgate has a low load-in
height to make placing objects in the cargo area a convenient process.

Instrument Panel Design and Meters

The instrument panel meters features efficient and modern architecture with
futuristic meter designs set against white and blue backlit gauges. The odometer
readout (below the speedometer face) also functions as an extensive information
display that shows outside temperature, vehicle mileage and trip mileage, and
average fuel economy, and is operated via an illumination controller on the
gauge. The information display also shows Maintenance Minder service-related
items based on vehicle usage.

The CR-V instrumentation includes the following:

  • White and blue backlit gauges (speedometer, tachometer)

  • Digital Odometer and Digital Trip meters (2)

  • Maintenance Minder System

  • Exterior Temperature Indicator (EX, EX-L)

  • Door/tailgate Open Indicator

  • Instantaneous and average fuel economy

  • Miles-to-empty indicator

  • Low oil pressure indicator

Maintenance Minder Display

The Maintenance Minder system automatically indicates in the information display
when to have standard service performed based on actual driving conditions (tracked
by the ECU) and minimizes the guesswork related to whether the vehicle is being
used in standard or severe use conditions for maintenance interval purposes.
Display items include when to change the engine oil, air cleaner, transmission
fluid, rear differential oil, spark plugs, coolant, as well as when to rotate
the tires.

Audio Systems

The 2007 Honda CR-V audio systems provide more power and features across the
board with added features and a greater diversity of options. Three unique audio
systems exist and each provides intuitive contols and knobs designed to make
operation quick and convenient. Every system provides an auxiliary input jack
for external audio sources such as an MP3 player. Additional premium features
include Speed-sensitive Volume Control (SVC) that can adjust the volume level
higher or lower to best match the background noise associated with elevated
speeds (user selectable with three levels). Available factory options include
a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and Rearview


The CR-V LX includes an AM/FM radio, CD player with MP3/WMA capability, 160-watt
power output and four speakers.

CR-V EX and EX-L

The CR-V EX and EX-L include an AM/FM radio, built-in 6-disc CD changer with
MP3/WMA playback, CD/MP3 text display, 160-Watt power output, six speakers (including
two dashboard tweeters) and steering wheel-mounted audio controls (volume and
channel preset).

CR-V EX-L with Navigation

The CR-V EX-L with Navigation audio system is integrated into the navigation
unit display and controls and includes an AM/FM radio, XM Satellite Radio tuner,
270-Watt power output, 7-speakers including two dash mounted tweeters and subwoofer
(located under the front passenger seat), CD/MP3 text display, internal single
disc CD player with MP3/WMA playback, external 6-disc CD changer (located in
the center console), and a digital audio card reader (PC card adapter required).

Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and
Rearview Camera

The latest generation of the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System
is available as a factory option on CR-V EX-L models and features a 6.5-inch
motorized display that opens and closes for access to the internal CD player
slot and a digital audio card reader. The digital audio card reader can
play MP3 and WMA files from SD, CompactFlash™, and Flash ATA memory cards
(PCM adapter required for all cards). The navigation system features more
than 7 million points of interest. The voice recognition, capable of more than 650
system commands, can also recognize any street name and city name in the
extensive nationwide database.

A rearview camera is standard equipment and is activated whenever the vehicle
is in reverse. The color camera is located near the rear license plate and has
a wide-angle lens.

Honda navigation systems have long been recognized for their simple, intuitive
operation and extensive on-board database. When navigating freeways, a split
screen design enhances on-screen information with a "map view" and
"3-D" route visualization of freeways simultaneously- which helps
make navigation information easier to understand. The system is integrated with
the car's audio system, so driving instructions can be heard over the speaker
system, and the voice recognition feature adds a hands-free realm of control
to the navigation system.

The Honda Satellite-Linked DVD Navigation System uses Global Positioning Satellites
(GPS) in combination with detailed information from the vehicle's DVD-based
mapping system to pinpoint the vehicle's location and to provide a host of useful
mapping and route guidance features.

The antenna can utilize up to 12 satellites from a network of 24 global positioning
satellites. If the antenna is obstructed by a tunnel, a parking garage or a
tall building, an internal gyroscopic system and a speed sensor track the location
of the vehicle so that the map information remains current and reliable. The
vehicle clock is independently controlled by GPS data, so when time zones are
crossed while driving the clock will automatically set itself to the current

Turn-by-turn voice guidance is user selectable in either male or female voice
and can be turned off at any time. Destination memory recalls current trip addresses
and previous destinations; and calendar and calculator with English to metric
number converter is standard. The navigation system can be controlled by the
driver through either the voice recognition system, the touch screen display,
or by the joystick on the instrument panel. The voice recognition system works
when the "talk" button, located on the steering wheel, is depressed.
When spoken to, the system recognizes commands such as "find nearest gas
station," or "find nearest ATM" and can also recognize street
and city names.

The 6.5-inch LCD display is a touch screen (TFT, resistive film) that allows
the driver or front passenger to choose menu options or type a word (i.e. address,
business name, place, etc.) through a touch-sensitive keypad. The keypad can
be set to alphabetical or a QWERTY typewriter-style layout. Alternatively, the
joystick can be used to highlight menu options or to highlight specific letters
on the keypad to complete a word. A matte finish is used on the display to reduce
glare and smudging. When disc loading is selected for the CD player, the motorized
screen conveniently tilts down to allow access to the CD loader located behind
the screen.

For data storage, the system uses a single 8 GB DVD that contains information
for the entire United States. Future updates to the navigation system can be
made by installing an updated DVD (available by via Honda's OwnerLink
on-line or by calling a toll free number in the owner's manual).

Three-Spoke Steering Wheel with Tilt and Telescope Column

The three-spoke steering wheel on the CR-V matches the vehicle's sporty
character with a smaller diameter (15 inches) that also accents the vehicle's
quicker steering ratio. All models include manual tilt and telescope steering
wheel adjustments to better accommodate drivers of various sizes. All trim levels
include cruise control buttons on the right side of the steering wheel for set,
accelerate, decelerate and cancel. CR-V EX and EX-L models include audio controls
on the left side of the steering wheel for volume and channel selection. CR-V's
equipped with the available navigation system also have buttons on the steering
wheel for the input of voice commands. The CR-V EX-L steering wheel is leather-wrapped
(along with the shifter lever).

Reclining Front Bucket Seats with Adjustable Head Restraints

The CR-V front seats have been completely redesigned with wider (+0.8 inches)
and more supportive seat construction thanks to progressively tuned foam bolsters.
The driving position has been optimized in relation to the steering wheel and
vehicle controls, and folding armrests are installed on the inboard portions
of the seat. An innovative front seat active head restraint system enhances
the seat's ability to minimize the potential for a neck injury in the
event of a rear collision (see Active Head Restraints in Interior Safety section).

Both front seats manually recline and move forward and back. The driver's
seat features a manual height adjustment control with 1.6 inches total of up
and down travel. A ratchet-style lever on the left side of the seat makes adjusting
the height easy - just pull up or push down to move the seat in increments.

Seat construction integrates several significant technologies. High strength
steel now comprises the majority of the seats internal steel framework. Composite
components are used in the base and the seatback to minimize weight and proactively
influence seat cushion feedback. The foam cushions employ various densities
in the bolsters compared to other areas in the seat to provide the right level
of comfort (softness) and support (firmness) in all the right places.

60/40 Split Rear Sliding Fold and Tumble Seats

The 60/40 Split Rear Seats provide generous seating surfaces that are both
comfortable and functional. The standard cargo volume behind the second row
(seats upright) measures 35.7 cubic feet. To increase storage space, the seats
can be folded down and tumbled forward to more than double the cargo area storage
space and accommodate long, bulky items like a mountain bike or large boxes.
In this cargo configuration, the CR-V offers a total of 72.9 cubic feet of storage
behind the front seats, more than enough for two 26-inch mountain bikes (with
front wheels attached).

Designed for practicality and convenience, the fold and tumble seat design
allows for a flat cargo floor. When folded, the three head restraints can remain
in the seat backs (no removal necessary). Maximum cargo length equals about
51 inches and the maximum width ranges between approximately 39 inches (at wheel
wells) to 54 inches (rear cargo area side panels). The rear seats slide forward
and backward to allow for the optimization of the cargo area and second row
passenger legroom. A new feature for 2007, the seatbacks have a 40/20/40 split
design to allow for center (or side) pass-through of long items.

Storage Areas and Dual-Deck Cargo Shelf

Convenient storage areas are easily accessible throughout the interior with
approximately 20 individual storage areas ranging from an upper and lower glove
box to eight individual beverage holders to an underseat storage bin. New for
2007, a center console replaces the retractable center tray table on the CR-V
EX-L trim level. Each front door has a utility box compartment built into the
padded armrest along with bottle holders. The lockable 6.3-liter lower glove
box is illuminated, and the upper glove box enhances the previous concept of
the open tray storage by using a flip-down cover. Up front, there are two cupholders
in the center console. In the rear seat area, the center armrest folds down
to reveal dual cupholders.

On CR-V EX and EX-L models, a new dual deck cargo shelf system allows for two
levels of storage in the rear cargo area. The shelf provides 13 inches (330
mm) of vertical space underneath - enough room for a collapsed stroller or similar
item - while still retaining a convenient area to place smaller items on top
(up to 20 pounds). The shelf is hinged at the front for easy access to items
underneath. The cargo shelf can also be placed on the floor for conventional
cargo area space utilization.

Retractable Center Tray Table

CR-V LX and EX trim levels provide a retractable center tray table with two
beverage holders and a storage tray. Solid and sturdy, the retractable center
tray table folds down to allow center pass-through between the first and second
rows. New for 2007, the CR-V EX retractable center tray adds a 12V DC accessory
outlet and an MP3/auxiliary audio input jack. The new features allow for more
convenient integration of MP3 players and also provide a convenient place to
recharge electronic devices. (The CR-V LX has an audio input jack on the instrument
panel below the single-DIN radio.)

Center Console (EX-L)

New for 2007, a center console with two beverage holders is standard on the
CR-V EX-L. As a premium feature, the center console enhances the interior's
appearance while adding two supplemental enclosed storage areas - a small container
on the front and a larger one on the rear. The larger container can store various
items such as cell phones and MP3 players. It has a sliding panel for quick
and easy access, and contains a 12V DC accessory outlet and an MP3/auxiliary
audio input jack. On models equipped with the available Honda Navigation System,
the front portion of the console contains the 6 CD changer.

Climate Control

All CR-V trim levels provide air conditioning as standard equipment. The manual
climate controls are mounted centrally on the instrument panel for easy accessibility
and utilize large, glove-friendly rotary knobs for temperature settings and
fan control (12-speeds). A new feature for 2007 is the addition of push button
selection for directing air through the various vents inside the vehicle, i.e.
defrost, heater, split level, etc.

The new controls add a touch of class and simplify mode selection. A micron
air-filtration system is also standard. From a mechanical standpoint, the climate
control system is designed to be efficient and lightweight, utilizing a high
capacity condenser with an integrated receiver/drier to route liquid refrigerant
through a sub-cooling condenser after cycling through the main condenser -
thus increasing efficiency.

Interior Lighting and Progressive Illumination

The progressive self-illuminating gauge package gives the CR-V a "welcoming"
feel. When the driver door is first opened, the instrument lighting comes to
life, and then brightens progressively to 100 percent when the ignition is switched
on. The illuminated instrument needles and enunciator lights then come alive,
indicating that the CR-V is ready to go. At the end of the drive, the instrument
lighting dims progressively.

Interior switches are illuminated to make them easy to locate at night, including
those on all four doors and the steering wheel. The CR-V has blue low-level
ambient lighting in the ceiling that illuminates the front center console area.
All four doors have courtesy lights that are illuminated when the doors are

Power Windows and Power Door and Tailgate Locks

Power windows and power door and tailgate locks are standard equipment. The
driver's window has convenient auto up and down operation and the passenger
window has an auto up feature. Power door locks can be customized to auto-lock
when the vehicle is put in drive or when the vehicle exceeds 9 mph (the auto
lock functionality is turned off by default from the factory). User-selectable
childproof door locks are standard on the rear doors.

Keyless Entry System

Keyless entry is standard equipment. The CR-V uses Honda's wave key design
that has an integrated transmitter in the key handle with lock, unlock and panic
buttons. The key can also raise and lower the windows.

Engine Immobilizer

Complementing the keyless entry system is a standard engine-immobilizer system.
A special electronically coded key prevents the car from being started-even
if a mechanical duplicate of the key is used. A transponder, built into the
key, signals the immobilizer control unit that the key is genuine. If the car
is hot-wired, or an unauthorized key is used, the engine will not start.

12V DC Accessory Outlets

The CR-V LX provides two 12V DC accessory outlets; one is located on the instrument
panel's center stack and the other is located in the cargo area.. The
CR-V EX and EX-L add an additional accessory outlet on either the retractable
center table or inside the center console.

U.V. Resistant Glass and Available Privacy Glass

The CR-V features glass that filters Ultra Violet (U.V.) light. This style
of glass results in less interior fade over time, lower cabin temperatures on
hot days and more efficient interior cooling. In addition to U.V. resistance,
the EX and EX-L trim levels feature deep-tinted privacy glass on the five most
rearward windows.

Safety Overview

Honda's mission for the CR-V is to provide an extraordinarily high level
of safety that meets and exceeds all current regulations and standards. These
goals embrace Honda's fundamental safety concept called "Safety
for Everyone."

Specific Safety Targets include:

  • 5-Star rating in NHTSA NCAP and SINCAP test procedures

  • "Good" ratings in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
    front offset and Side Impact Crashworthiness Evaluation (SICE) and the seat/head
    restraint tests

  • New FMVSS 301 rear collision standards implemented by the federal government
    for the 2007 model year

  • Advanced control of intrusion into the passenger compartment during a side
    collision with an SUV

  • Improved protection in the event of frontal collisions with larger vehicles

  • Enhanced crash compatibility with smaller vehicles in a car-to-car collision
    compared to previous generation vehicles (see ACE Body Structure in Body section)

  • Advanced protection for pedestrians in event of a collision (see Body section)

All new 2007 model year vehicles are required to meet the latest federal crash-performance
regulations known as FMVSS 208 (frontal) and FMVSS 301 (rear) that phase in
from September 2006.

Above and beyond these are key safety evaluation tests from NHTSA and the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which are often referenced by customers
but not required by law. For the CR-V, the engineering target was 5 Stars for
the NHTSA tests and Good ratings for all IIHS tests - the best results

This includes voluntary improvements in the IIHS ratings test called SICE,
which limits the intrusiveness if hit by an SUV in a side collision. Finally,
the CR-V adopts pedestrian head protection measures that are above and beyond
NHTSA standards, which currently do not regulate this safety issue.

Advanced Dual Stage, Dual Threshold Front Driver's and Front
Passenger's Airbags

The CR-V is equipped with dual-stage, dual-threshold supplemental restraint
system (SRS) airbags for the driver and front passenger. These airbags are designed
to minimize the potential for airbag injury while providing head and chest protection
for the occupants in the event of a frontal collision. This front airbag system
features front passenger seat weight sensors and a driver seat position sensor
designed to further enhance occupant protection.

The CR-V's front airbags can deploy at one of two rates. Deployment of the
driver's front airbag takes into account the severity of the crash, whether
or not the driver's seat belt is fastened and the position of the driver's seat.
During a lower speed collision, the airbag inflators are triggered in sequence,
resulting in overall airbag deployment with less initial force. The same sequence
is also utilized regardless of collision speed if the driver's seat is close
to the full forward position.

During a higher speed collision, if the driver's seat is far from the full
frontal position, both inflators operate simultaneously for full, immediate
inflation. Airbag deployment on the front passenger's airbag is regulated by
crash severity, seatbelt usage as well as the weight of the occupant. Sensors
under the seat gauge occupant weight and if the total weight on the passenger
seat is less than the NHTSA-specified MVSS specifications, the airbag system
will not deploy, minimizing the potential for injury to children. Similar to
what is available on the driver's side, the airbags are deployed at the speed
appropriate to the speed and severity of the collision - slower for lower speed
collisions, more quickly for higher speeds.

The driver's airbag is located in the steering wheel hub and the passenger's
airbag is located on top of the dashboard. As in all Honda vehicles, the front
passenger's airbag is designed to deploy upward toward the windshield and then
back toward the occupant. This provides a large cushion to help protect the
front passenger while reducing the likelihood of injury resulting from airbag

Driver's Front Side Airbag and Front Passenger's Side Airbag with
Occupant Position Detection System

Every CR-V is equipped with seat-mounted front side airbags in the outboard
sections of the backrests to help safeguard the driver and front passenger from
side-impact injury. An innovative occupant position detection system is used
to assure that the passenger's side airbag has a clear path for deployment.
In the event a child (or a small-statured adult) leans into the deployment path
of the side airbag, a seven-segment "antenna" system built within
the backrest signals this condition to an electronic control unit (ECU) also
located within the seat. The ECU then deactivates the side air bag from functioning
and triggers a "SIDE AIRBAG OFF" indicator light in the instrument
cluster. After the front occupant returns to a normal seating position, the
side air bag module automatically resumes full-functional status.

Side Curtain Airbags

Both rows of occupants are protected by Honda's Side Curtain Airbag
with Rollover Sensor system, which is standard equipment on all CR-V models.
The side curtain airbags deploy from modules in the roof in the event of a sufficient
side impact, providing a significant level of head protection in the window
area. In the unlikely event of a rollover, a roll rate sensor and multiple G
sensors determine the rate of roll and deploy the side curtain airbags accordingly.

Like the other airbag systems in the CR-V, the side curtain system utilizes
multiple sensors to determine the most appropriate timing of deployment of the
airbags in the event of a rollover. To provide the optimal level of protection
for CR-V occupants, extensive testing was performed to determine the most appropriate
timing of deployment in the event of a rollover. The system uses algorithms
to continually evaluate the situation and determines whether a rollover is imminent.
The system responds to many types of rollover "events" drivers could
potentially encounter including the "curb trip rollover" which as
its name suggests, results when one side of the vehicle hits a curb or like
object; the "soil trip rollover" which can result when one side
of the vehicles suddenly comes into contact with a different surface type, often
involving a slight elevation change; and the "screw rollover." This
type of rollover is usually the steepest and fastest of the rollovers whereby
the vehicle comes upon a sharp angle such as an embankment.

The roll rate sensor and multiple G sensors determine the "scenario"
and calculate the angle of roll and the speed of the vehicle in order to deploy
the airbags at the correct stage for optimum protection. In the case of a rollover,
the side curtain airbags on both sides of the vehicle will deploy. The airbags
maintain full inflation for approximately three seconds after inflation to allow
for the increased time duration of a rollover accident. However, in the event
of a sufficient side impact that does not result in a rollover, only the airbags
on the impacted side of the vehicle will deploy.

Active Front Seat Head Restraints

An innovative front seat active head restraint system is used that enhances
the seat's ability to minimize the potential for neck injury from rear
end collisions. The ability to manage rear collision forces to be relatively
equal on the head, neck and spine is a key component to minimizing injuries.
In the event of a rear collision, a person's body would be pushed against
the seatback. The pressure from the seatback is transmitted mechanically from
the lumbar plate via links that push the head restraint upward and forward to
comparatively equalize the forces acting on the head, neck and spine at the
same time as the collision.

Front Seatbelts with Pretensioners and Load Limiters

Both front seat belts have seat belt pretensioners and load limiters that
work together to help protect the driver and front passenger in a collision.
The components work automatically in a 1-2 sequence. In the first few milliseconds
of a collision, the pretensioners automatically tighten the front seat belts.
Research has shown that seat belts that are snugly secured around the occupants
provide better protection. If the deceleration forces rise above a predetermined
threshold, the load limiter releases a small length of seatbelt webbing to reduce
the pressure on the occupant in a controlled manner. This helps reduce the injuries
that seatbelts can cause in a severe high-speed collision.

LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren)

The 2007 CR-V includes a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) child-seat
mounting system for all rear seat positions, allowing two outboard child seats
to be installed or one center child seat to be installed. LATCH features built-in
lower anchors and ready-to-use tether attachment points that allow compatible
child safety seats to be installed without using the vehicle's seat belt system.
Additionally, the LATCH system simplifies child seat installation when an owner
installs a LATCH-compatible child seat.
