2019 Honda CR-V: Top 5 Features For Parents

“If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it’s probably a duck.” How does this duck analogy relate to the 2019 Honda CR-V, you ask?

When it comes to crossovers, if there’s space for families and features for families, then it’s probably a family SUV. And that’s exactly what you get with the new CR-V: a family-friendly SUV that makes life simpler for parents. Here are the five best reasons every parent should consider upgrading to the newest Honda CR-V model this spring.

Hands-Free Power Liftgate

5. Programmable Hands-Free Power Liftgate

With a tap of the CR-V’s key fob button, you can load and unload all your kid’s gear easily. Thanks to its programmable height feature, the 2019 CR-V liftgate can also be customized to accommodate both long-legged and stout parents. The programmable power liftgate is standard starting on the CR-V EX-L.

Upgrade to the CR-V Touring trim, and you’re in for a treat; the programmable power liftgate includes a hands-free function that makes parenthood exponentially easier. Just hover your foot underneath the CR-V’s bumper to open the tailgate automatically. When you’re done accessing the cargo area, another kick of the foot will shut that hatch nice and tight.

Apple CarPlay

4. Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

Parents with little tykes will enjoy having a perfect mobile jukebox like the CR-V. With fully integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology, the 2019 CR-V allows parents to stream and play every Disney song known to man through the bright Display Audio touchscreen. Whether that’s good or bad depends on your propensity to have PTSD upon hearing the question, “do you want to build a snowman?

These features also send directions, texts, voicemails, and more from your smartphone to the display, so you don’t have to set a bad example by looking at your phone. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard on CR-V EX models and up.

 Rear USB Ports

What’s the best way to entertain the kids on a long road trip from Denver to the Grand Canyon? Keep them connected and topped off at 100%. With the 2019 Honda CR-V, a pair of USB charging ports in the back row will enable them to glue their eyes to their smartphones and tablets. Rear USBs are standard beginning with the CR-V EX model.

Fold-Flat 60/40 Back Seats

2. Fold-Flat 60/40 Back Seats

Every parent in Denver needs extra cargo room to transport strollers, wagons, coolers, and other gear for kids. With the rear 60/40-split seats folded down into the floor, the new CR-V provides a miraculous maximum cargo volume of 75.8 cubic feet, which is far more space than competitors like the Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue, and Chevy Equinox. These rear seats are standard on all 2019 CR-V SUV trims.

 Honda Sensing Standard

1. Honda Sensing Standard

Honda’s world-class suite of safety features come standard with every 2019 CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring model. Honda Sensing keeps you and your precious cargo – aka. the kids – safeguarded from the dangers of the road. Included in the Honda Sensing suite are the following systems:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking – Automatically engages the brakes when an unavoidable collision is detected with vehicles in front of you.
  • Road Departure Mitigation – Warns you if you’re venturing off the beaten path, and takes necessary actions to ensure the CR-V stays within road markers.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow – Maintains a set speed and following distance at higher speeds, without requiring you to adjust cruise control settings.
  • Lane Keeping Assist – As its name would suggest, Lane Keeping Assist assists with keeping you in your lane by gently steering the CR-V back to center.

The 2019 Honda CR-V represents Honda’s commitment to safety. In addition to Honda Sensing, the 2019 CR-V also comes with the following standard and available safety features:

  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  •  LED Daytime Running Lights
  • SmartVent Front Side Airbags
  • Honda LaneWatch
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • LATCH system
