Honda CR-V 2013 [AUTO TV] Full HD

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (www.youtube.com Honda’s new CR-V SUV does something the older model struggled to do — it commands attention. Shorter, lower, but with a longer roof, there is a nice balance to its fresh new lines. Where the older model looked a bit of a frump, the higher-set nose of the new model, strong curved grille and angular chopped tail, injects a little class and carpark presence into Honda’s new midsized SUV. Smaller outside, but bigger inside, few, we’d reckon, will find the distinctly sharper styling lacking. Importantly, with a more potent 2.4 litre petrol engine standard across 4WD models, and a new 2.0 litre 2WD model at a sub-k entry-point to the range, it’s packing some showroom punch for Honda. We put the entry-level VTi 2WD and similar entry-level VTi 4WD over the same highway, hills and back-roads route, one after the other (and a shorter loop in the top-spec VTi-L) Unladen, there is not as much between them as the technical specifications may suggest. Sure, fully loaded for the family holiday, the torque deficit of the 2.0 litre will likely be more apparent, but each is lively enough. The 2.0 litre in the 2WD model produces 114kW and 190Nm of torque, quite a bit less than the 140kW and 230Nm of the 2.4 litre 4WD model — but the 2.0 litre is dragging around 92kg less that the heavier ‘fourby’.

Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS

When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter. But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64 percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars. In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per million by 2009. The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia. “By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly,” said Joe Nolan, the institute’s chief administrative officer.
