The New Exterior of the 2015 Honda CR-V Touring

When you first take a look at the exterior of the you’ll notice a few key differences. Taking a look at the front end, you’ll notice some differences that make it stand out from the 2014 Honda CR-V. The new design for the front bumper and fog lights stand out from the small round fog lights that appeared on the 2014 model. The new fog lights have a rectangular design and are much larger on the bumper. The fog lights also feature LED running lights that distinguish the 2015 model from the 2014 model. LED running lights are also featured in the headlight assembly of the new model.

Looking at the  front end of the Touring edition, you’ll also notice the brushed steel skid plate underneath the front bumper. It adds both a functional value to the Honda CR-V as well as giving it a more aggressive look. If you come around to the rear on the CR-V, you’ll notice a matching brushed steel skid plate on the rear bumper, completing the look. Combine these with the stunning new 18″ rims on the Touring edition, and the Honda CR-V Touring has a whole new look.

 There is also a change with the Honda emblem on the 2015 Honda CR-V. Instead of the classic exposed metal “H” that is standard on Honda’s lineup, the “H” is covered by a clear plastic coating. I personally like the look of it and once you notice it, does make the badge on the new Honda CR-V really stand out from the rest. But, there is a function in the new form. The emblem need to be coated because it now contains the Assisted Cruise Control radar sensor. The new Assisted Cruise Control is a new take on cruise control that enables the system to adapt to traffic around the car to slow down or speed up to the set limit. This uses the radar sensors all around the car and really does a good amount of work for the driver during the operation of cruise control.
