2015 Honda CR-V 2WD vs. AWD

2015 Honda CR-V 2WD vs. AWD

For model year 2015, Honda’s popular CR-V crossover is available in a variety of trims that range from the entry-level LX to the top-end Touring. Though the same Earth Dreams engine is commissioned to power each model in the CR-V lineup, several features are particularly tied to one of Honda’s unique trim packages. Honda’s Collision Mitigation Braking system, for example, is an exclusive feature of the 2015 Honda CR-V Touring.

Indicated in the table above, all-wheel drive is not one of the features limited to a particular CR-V package. In accordance with Honda’s continued safety efforts, it’s important for the automaker to make the traction control measures of all-wheel drive available to the full range of its crossover SUV drivers—regardless of what convenience features they may or may not be interested in. This is good news for all who make their way in challenging climates, particularly those comparing the 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD vs. AWD at Chicagoland’s Continental Honda.

2015 Honda CR-V Real Time Intelligent AWD

Equipped with identical engines that turn identical quantities of hard-working torque, the manner in which CR-V harnesses that power is a primary consideration for drivers comparing CR-V’s two drivetrains. Whereas 2WD models of the Honda CR-V crossover apply torque exclusively to the vehicle’s front tires, AWD CR-V models are equipped with what Honda describes as a Real Time Intelligent Control System™. This means that CR-V is able to electronically identify which of its four tires holds the most advantageous amount of road traction while appropriately channeling engine torque to those determined corners. In other words, you get the most out of your 2015 Honda CR-V—rain, snow, or shine.
