Default What changes for 2014

Ok,

I was supposed to change my 2008 CRV last fall.... but I have to admit that I had second thought to buy the 2012-2013.... and this mainly because of the armrest which I really hate, and the transmission which I can't control like I wish when pulling my trailer during winter...

I shop a bit and I felt the market really did not offer satisfaction for the money they are asking, so I kept my 2008 for another year to see what may be available for 2014...

I just went to the autoshow the other day.... it helped me cleaning up the list of choices.... but will still need to try....

Botton line is;

1- Toyota RAV4 2013 Limited
2- Honda CRV
3- nothing
4- nothing

I am really wondering what Honda is keeping from us for 2014.... any idea or rumors ?????

The US hasn't seen a manual CR-V since the 2006 model year.
American Honda Motor Corp wasn't selling enough of them to make it worth building them to meet US government safety requirements.

And Einstein14 is from Canada, which is not the US, and does not get the same models that the US gets.

Default Rumors for 2014

I too am starting the process of researching a new vehicle.
I have been holding out to see if Honda will finally put a diesel and maybe a CVT
in the CRV.

Anybody hear of what Honda might change for their model lines.

thanks,
Alex

I was interested in a diesel, but Honda couldn't get their diesel engine that's available in the CR-V in other countries to pass the US EPA requirements.

I'm waiting to see what the Urban SUV Concept ends up actually looking like.
It's supposed to hit the US market in 2014.
It's 9 inches shorter than the CR-V, but longer than the Fit.

If you went to the Auto Show, that is the same year model 2013. GH Honda does not show their new cars coming out? Not even when they changed over to the 2012. unless I was at the wrong show?

Now the Rave 4 was a sweet car when they showed it last years show.

If they do pop out with a new cross tour the CR-V changed class.

remembering back when tehy taken in the Rodeo, and called it their own, to become the Pilot.
