The Honda CR-V also offers lots of storage space with a big trunk and standard folding seats. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have enough seating for larger families. It’s only available with two rows of seats.

A 6.5-inch screen comes standard, but an 8-inch screen is also available with a navigation system. You’ll be able to get turn-by-turn directions and view 3D maps on both the dashboard and the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit. This digital instrument cluster is fully customizable, offers full screen navigation mode, and is capable of saving up to four driver profiles.

The Honda CR-V also offers a touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™. Unfortunately, none of these features come standard until the higher trim levels.
