Inside View of the 2021 Honda CR-V Interior

June 14th, 2021 by

If you live in Marion, Illinois, and need a crossover SUV, you’ve probably come across the Honda CR-V by now. If not, prepare to be wowed. The CR-V has a sporty, sculpted exterior and rides on 18- or 19-inch wheels that give it an athletic profile. Under the hood, it has the power to excite.

But, it’s what’s inside that CR-V that impresses. The CR-V has more amenities within the cabin than most vehicles in its class, some incredible in-vehicle technology, and enough cargo space for the weekend camping trip or a day at the beach. Here at Ike Honda in Marion, we’ve broken down the interior features to help you better understand the value of buying a 2021 Honda CR-V.

Keyless entry gets you inside with the key fob still in your pocket. Slipping into the cockpit of the Honda CR-V, you immediately notice the modern technology that surrounds you. The driver information interface displays critical driving data to the screen behind the steering wheel. You can view everything, from audio settings, speed, turn-by-turn directions, and more. It even features a driver attention monitor that alerts you when it detects distracted or drowsy driving behavior.

A wireless phone charger comes standard, along with 1.5- and 1.0-amp USB input/charging ports located in the front and rear cabin. The input USB ports allow you to sync your smart devices seamlessly to the display audio screen in your center stack. The 7-inch display screen has pinch, zoom, and swipe capability for smooth and easy operation of your connected devices or accessing installed apps. The audio systems installed include Pandora, SiriusXM satellite radio, and an HD radio system.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration allow you to access your favorite playlists, get navigation information, run your favorite apps, send and receive calls, and more, hands-free. A 330-watt premium audio system with nine speakers and a subwoofer delivers crisp, clear sound. It even has a 12-volt power outlet that comes in handy on those camping trips. You get steering-wheel-mounted controls for audio, cruise control, and driver-assist systems.

The HondaLink app further enhances your connectivity. Download the app to your phone, and you can access vehicle diagnostics and schedule service appointments from your smartphone or the display screen. You can also use HondaLink to remotely start, stop, lock, and unlock your CR-V. When you’re in reverse, your touch screen shows a live feed from behind your CR-V in three views: normal, top-down, and wide-angle. When you exit your CR-V, the vehicle automatically locks behind you as long as you have your key fob on your person. You’ll never forget to lock your car or lock your keys in your car again.

Honda Sensing, a suite of driver-assist systems, comes standard with every CR-V. These systems use radar and advanced optical sensors to monitor your CR-V’s surroundings. Alerts and images are sent to the driver information interface, the center display screen, and the side mirrors when possible situations are detected. One system even recognizes traffic signs and displays them on your interface to help you operate your CR-V according to the road rules.

Comfort and Convenience Features

Every trim seats five people comfortably. The LX and EX trims come standard with cloth seats, with the heating on the EX trim. The EX-L and Touring trims upgrade to leather-trimmed seats, and both models feature heated seats. A heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather-wrapped shift knob come with the EX-L and Touring trims as well. A one-touch power moonroof comes standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, opening up the already spacious cabin to more light and air. The driver enjoys a 12-way power-adjustable seat with lumbar support and memory. The front passenger seat has a four-way power adjustment feature.

The dual-zone climate control system lets the driver and front passenger select the perfect temperature. An adjustable center console can fit everything from a tablet to a bag depending on its configuration, plus it has cup holders. Power windows and door locks come standard in every model. Hybrid models and the top Touring trim feature interior ambient lighting.

You can customize your CR-V with various Honda accessories like a cargo area tray that protects the cargo floor from damage or staining. Similarly, you can opt for the all-season floor mats to protect your original carpet from muddy shoes and pet hair. Rear seat covers offer protection from the inevitable toddler spills. The available seat back protectors help protect against damage to the seatbacks when folded flat for storing oversized items.

Cargo Space and Passenger Room

Every CR-V model comes with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat for multiple cargo configurations. The back seat folds flat to open up even more space. You access the rear cargo with the hands-free foot-activated power liftgate. The liftgate comes with a programmable height adjustment to customize for smaller or taller individuals. A retractable cargo area cover comes standard on all trims except the base model LX, preventing prying eyes from seeing inside.

With the rear seat up, you get 39.2 cubic feet of storage area. With the rear seat folded flat, you have 75.8 cubic feet in the gas powertrain models and 68.7 cubic feet in the hybrid trims. The CR-V boasts impressive leg, hip, head, and shoulder room in both the front and rear seats, with a total passenger volume of up to 105.9 cubic feet.
