Most reports reviewed by TheCarConnection.com were impressed with the features available for the 2008 Honda CR-V.

The CR-V comes in three trim levels: LX, EX, and EX-L. Every 2008 CR-V offers standard equipment, including cruise control, keyless entry, power locks/windows/mirrors, a tilt-telescope steering wheel, and an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack, Edmunds reports. The EX adds a sunroof, steering-wheel audio controls, and a six-CD changer, while the EX-L puts in leather seating, a power driver seat, dual-zone climate control, seat heaters, and a front center console, along with satellite radio and an upgraded audio system.

The only option, Edmunds adds, is a navigation system that includes a rearview camera and a slot for digital cards for music playback.

Vehicle controls are very user-friendly, according to Kelley Blue Book: "the CR-V's dual-dial dash is an easy read, controls and switchgear are all within arm's reach and simple to operate."

The air-conditioning system catches flak from Mother Proof, which writes it "couldn't fully combat a Southern California heat wave, especially considering there are no vents in back to cool off the little ones." Cars.com conversely notes “the moonroof in the LX model seemed small, even for a compact vehicle.”

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
