|The 2005 Honda CRV has new exterior and interior styling, additional standard safety equipment as well as the addition of a new Special Edition (SE) model with features such as leather interior and body-color bumpers.
The Special Edition has heated leather seats and door mirrors, and a leather steering wheel and shift knob. Externally, the CR-V SE also adds body-colored bumpers, side molding, door handles and hard spare tire cover. The exterior of the Honda CR-V has newly designed front grill, cylindrical-shaped headlights and aerodynamic front bumper, side sill and side protector, rear combination lights and rear bumper, new Arch flare with one-piece mudguard. It also has 16" wheels for all trim levels, along with a new EX alloy and LX steel wheel designs.
Interior features for the CR-V have also been significantly updated for the 2005 model year. On the EX trim level, steering mounted audio controls and outside temperature gauge has been added. Also, all models now feature new retractable grab rails and larger seatback pockets.
Added features include integrated keyless remote entry, steering wheel mounted audio controls and outside temperature gauge added to EX trim level , new cam-driven ‘Real Time' 4WD mechanism on all models (replaces hydraulic pump-type system). All models (LX, EX and SE) come with A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control and 16-inch wheels (another new-for-'05 feature) already included. The step-up EX adds an electric sunroof, keyless entry and secondary steering wheel-mounted controls for the audio system. Top SE versions add heated leather seats, body-colored bumpers, and a hard plastic spare cover for the tailgate-mounted spare.
The CR-V performs well with adequate acceleration and good fuel economy coming from its 160-horsepower 2.4-liter in-line four-cylinder engine. Honda's industry-leading 'Safety for Everyone' program equipped all CRV’s with a longer list of standard safety equipment including front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control, side-impact door beams and front/rear crumple zones.
