Editors at TheCarConnection.com are impressed by the standard and optional features lists for the 2009 Honda CR-V.

The 2009 Honda CR-V comes in three trim levels: LX, EX, and EX-L. Most features are tied to the trim level chosen. Standard equipment on the LX trim includes 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. ConsumerGuide points out that the EX-L adds "dual-zone automatic climate controls, leather upholstery, heated front seats, 8-way power driver seat, center console, leather-wrapped steering wheel, [and] heated power mirrors." Other EX-L features include satellite radio and a rearview camera.

The only option, Edmunds adds, is a navigation system that includes a rearview camera and a slot for digital cards for music playback. ConsumerGuide sums it up, noting that the 2009 Honda CR-V offers "lots of standard safety and convenience features."

Vehicle controls in the 2009 Honda CR-V 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."

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

Conclusion

The 2009 Honda CR-V offers plenty of features to suit most needs, although to get some of the most desirable options, you'll have to step up to an expensive EX-L.

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.
