Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “It’s not the destination. It’s the journey.” well he clearly never been in a 2018 Honda CR-V Touring! This year as I planned the 3rd Annual #Atozselflove Yoga Retreat at Nectar Yoga BNB, I knew I was going to need more room than my 2008 VW Golf had. This year it was all about the journey AND the destination!

Upon opening the driver side door, I was immediately swept off my feet by the sleek interior, leather seats and gorgeous wood grain detail. With all the bells and whistles, it was clear that Honda paid a lot of attention to details.

Motor Trend hails Honda CR-V as “supreme example of calm, confident composure that delivers in all categories” I don’t know that I could use any better words to explain the 2018 Honda CR-V Touring myself. 

Now back to that interior, Motor Trend called it “the swankiest interior ever seen on the CR-V”.  Honda clearly paid attention to a wide range of details including safety performance features, engineering excellence, efficiency, and even value. With driver’s seat position memory and 4-Way Power Lumbar Support, simply sitting in the 2018 Honda CR-V Touring was pure luxury!

With heated front and rear seats, Ava deemed the Honda CR-V car of the year simply based on the heated front and rear seats! Another feature that was highly appreciated was the 7-inch Display Audio System3 with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™3,7. Although I personally found the navigation to be a bit out of date, as a few of my destinations wouldn’t register, with Ava’s anxiety having that big screen was a godsend.  The highly visible map kept her informed of where we were going and when we would be arriving.

Learning to drive when I was 15 in Saskatchewan with my father was quite the experience. He believed that if you were going to drive it, you should know how it works and how to fix it. I did my own oil changes and accompanied him with repairs. When I learned to drive a Standard Transmission, he built a model and explained in great detail what was happening as I was driving so I would have a greater understanding!

With modern technology in vehicles, I do feel a bit powerless as there is no way I could ever repair this vehicle and I certainly don’t have any ideas on the computers behind it all. However, sitting behind the 1.5-liter,  turbocharged 4-cylinder Honda CR-V, that comfort and confidence came back.

The 18″ aluminum-alloy wheels combined with it being AWD (all-wheel drive) I had no worries behind the wheel. There was literally was no situation I could get in that the 2018 Honda CR-V Touring couldn’t get me out of safely.

One of the features I particularly enjoyed the most was the spaciousness. Being a busy Mom of two girls running 3 businesses, sometimes packing my Golf can be a bit like playing Tetris! The trunk space was phenomenal, from packing soccer gear, camera equipment, leather supplies and all the mom things the ease of doing so without fear or whether it would all fit was incredible.

Feeling like an Octopus? Arms full with a child, groceries or everything else? No problem the 2018 Honda CR-V Touring has hands-free capabilities and you can simply use your feet!

The #atozselflove Yoga Retreat at Nectar Yoga BNB to this year was so easy and stress-free as there were no worries. I knew that my guests and I would arrive safely and there was more than enough room for all of the yoga mats, luggage and swag bags for the guests. This vehicle was an absolute joy to drive for 2 weeks as we prepared for the retreat and then in the aftermath of the retreat before I reluctantly had to return it!

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle like us, I highly suggest heading to your local Honda Dealership and taking the Honda CR-V Touring for a test drive. Going from a compact car to a 5 seater SUV back down to our Golf definitely had me missing the CR-V in a real hurry. I’m not alone in that sentiment, the girls still ask when we’re going to buy one.
