The 2021 Honda CR-V continues taking the best from both Honda sedans and SUVs and creating the most capable and versatile crossover in its class. The title “Compact Recreational Vehicle” is what defines the CR-V, but it’s more than that, as it’s a Honda vehicle that is durable and covers every metric, from style to capacity to performance to safety. Across the many different CR-V models and trim levels, you’re sure to find an option that matches up with your lifestyle with us at Cambridge Centre Honda.
Continuing the CR-V’s versatile design from last year, the 2021 iteration gives off a strong impression on your commutes or adventures. Feel immersed in your surroundings with the one-touch power moonroof that comes with most CR-V trim levels, giving you a great view of the sky allowing the sunlight to come in. Available roof rail system will handle the larger loads to clear up space for the interior cargo, which is easier than ever to access via the hands-free power liftgate. On the front-end, high-quality LED headlights can be complemented with fog lights to help illuminate the road ahead when visibility is hampered. An additional exterior convenience option is the available rain-activated windshield wipers that activate when they sense rain. No matter which options you choose, the CR-V is more than capable of tackling Canada’s urban sprawl and tough backcountry conditions.

The 2021 CR-V may be considered a compact SUV, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it on the inside. The interior of the CR-V is loaded with features that make it an incredibly comfortable ride for both driver and passengers. Available Automatic Climate Control with Dual-Zone Functionality gives both driver and passenger their own climate control, and this system is coupled with heated front seats to handle the cold Canadian winters. When it comes to cargo space, the CR-V is unmatched relative to its size, making efficient use of all available space. When the rear seats are folded down, the cargo space is expanded even more, giving you the freedom and ability to carry whatever your cargo is from point A to B without hassle. When the journey is over and you need to park the CR-V, the rearview camera will help guide you into any space providing you with the visibility you need.
Through technology to keep you entertained and connected, to Honda Sensing Technologies that will keep you safe on the road, the Honda CR-V covers convenience, technology, and safety. Entering and starting the engine is simple with its proximity key entry and remote starter, all accessed on one fob. The Display Audio System connects through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, linking you to your favourite apps. Rear USB ports will ensure your passengers’ devices are always fully charged, while an available wireless charger upfront does the cordless job for you. Further available features include Honda LaneWatch blind spot display and Blind Spot Information, showing through your Display Audio System and providing more visibility around your Honda.
Led forth by Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking, these systems are designed to detect vehicles around you, either alerting you, taking action or applying the brakes, depending on the situation. Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning and Road Departure Mitigation all serve to assist you in staying in your lane and maintaining your straight driving line. Active Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow keeps you at a consistent speed and set interval behind a vehicle, adapting to slow, stop or start depending on traffic.
The 2021 CR-V takes all that Honda SUV versatility and backs it up with supreme power and efficient performance. The 1.5L, 16-valve, Direct Injection DOHC turbocharged 4-cylinder engine provides 190 horsepower, with 179 lb-ft of torque. The heart of the CR-V is connected through a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), allowing the driver to easily adapt to driving conditions, all the while adding up toward an efficient ride. For those times when you need exceptional traction, the CRV delivers in spades, all thanks to its Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control system.

Built with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, the CR-V is made to protect the cabin through any collision. Both ABS and EBD brake systems work to provide control and optimize weight distribution for reactive and safe braking. Further across the tires, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System keeps you abreast of the air pressure in each tire, all through simple dashboard alerts. Control when you’re driving has been made even more secure thanks to systems like Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, which helps offset mistakes while steering, as well as maintaining control on ground that is slippery or has loose impediments. The high beam system works with your surrounding environment to automatically adjust the brightness of your lights, perfect for driving in and out of the city at night. Don’t worry about your vehicle’s safety when stopping on a hill, as the Hill Start Assist will keep your CR-V from rolling back.
Six standard airbags invite further protection, including side curtain airbags with rollover sensibility, and SmartVent™ airbags that deploy to match smaller people or ones in an awkward position. The front seat belts are 3-point height adjustable, coupled with an automatic tensioning system, while the rear seat belts are designed in the 3-point style for supreme safety. With a CR-V crossover like this, you’re sure to be driving around some young ones, and the vehicle takes their safety as top importance through a LATCH system that works with child safety seats, as well as child proof rear door locks to keep your children secure. Even pedestrian safety is front of mind with Honda and the CR-V thanks to energy-absorbing hood/fenders, as well as wiper pivots that easily breakaway.
