When you’re an older driver, you have to think about features beyond price point and horsepower if you’re shopping for a new vehicle. Comfort, safety, easy-to-use technology, and efficiency should all be considered. Here, we take a look at why the 2019 Honda CR-V is a suitable option for those who are retired.
Accessibility & Comfort
The Honda CR-V’s cabin is well-built with a modern design that utilizes soft-touch materials throughout for comfort. Power seats make adjusting your driving position simple, while the available heated steering wheel and seats will keep you warm, even though Florida doesn’t get too hot during the winter. The digital instrument cluster is brightly lit, which means you can get all the information you need at a glance.
You will be able to fit 39.2 cubic feet of cargo in the CR-V when the rear seats are up. This number grows to 75.8 cubic feet if the rear seats are folded down. The trunk’s low lift-over height makes loading cargo simple, which means you can pack your CR-V with the items you need for your next adventure, whether you’re going fishing or to visit your grandchildren. Though the CR-V has a high ride height, you can still step into the driver seat with ease. This crossover even has an available illuminated door sill so you can see where to step when it’s dark out.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently named the 2019 CR-V a 2019 Top Safety Pick* in recognition of the crossover’s crashworthiness. Along with this safety accolade, the CR-V also offers the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistance technologies, which comes standard beginning on the EX trim level. This means you will have access to features like Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking, and Road Departure Mitigation to help you feel more confident out on the road.
