This week I’m behind the wheel of the all-new 2012 Honda CR-V in Touring trim. This is a fully loaded model, once again; the CR-V is available in four trim levels, starting with LX, moving up through EX, EX-L and Touring.

All CR-Vs are powered by the same 2.4 L inline four-cylinder engine that outputs 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque, and is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The LX and EX are available in both front-wheel drive and “real-time” all-wheel drive, while EX-L and Touring are available only with all-wheel drive.

Of course, the Touring model, being top of the line, has pretty much every feature you could think of including navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, backup camera system, leather seating, moonroof, cruise control and more.

I’ve had a few hours behind the wheel already as I picked up the car and headed straight to the U.S. border to pick up a set of tires I had waiting for me. After a very long day of travel (12 hours), the two-hour trip in the CR-V was a breeze so I’m already somewhat impressed, but I’m sure over the next few days I’ll learn a lot more about the vehicle.
