Expanding your family and need a more commodious preowned vehicle? Pass over the sedan segment and check out a 2010 Honda CR-V EX. This platform delivers an easy-to-drive nature, along with comfortable seating for five and great storage capacity.
With 1,011 L of cargo space with the back row in place, the 2010 CR-V offers all the room you need to carry everyday items, like strollers, diaper bags and groceries. However, should you need more versatility, the 60/40 split rear seats can slide, fold and tumble forward, opening up a total of 2,064 L of capacity. Throughout the cabin, you’ll also appreciate the handy storage compartments for smaller items, including a centre console, conversation mirror with a sunglass holder, door pockets and an under-seat storage bin. Keeping the trunk organized is easy as well with the standard dual-deck cargo shelf.
Under the hood, the CR-V runs on a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower and 161 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control and a lockup torque converter, fuel economy is thrifty even with all-wheel drive (10.1 L/100 km city and 7.5 L/100 km highway). Rough roads are no trouble either, thanks to the MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension that absorb bumps and potholes.

If your growing family is in need of a larger vehicle, but you want a crossover SUV that straddles the lines of compact and midsize, a great option is a 2010 Honda CR-V EX. With room for five, your kids will always have the space they need (even ones in rear-facing car seats), plus this model boasts ample cargo storage for all their gear.
Slip inside and you’ll love the CR-V’s functional and attractive interior, which includes a sliding and reclining backseat, a two-tier cargo area and a lightweight rear liftgate. Loading your children into their seats is made easy thanks to the wide-opening rear doors. As you drive, you can keep an eye on them too with the handy conversation mirror built into the overhead console’s sunglasses holder. Standard features on the EX trim are noteworthy as well, with leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate controls and a driver’s seat with eight-way power adjustments for your comfort.
One of the best features of the 2010 CR-V is its cavernous trunk, which measures 35.7 cubic feet with all seats in place. Should you need more room, the rear seats can be folded forward to open up 73 cubic feet of cargo. That's plenty of space for diaper bags, strollers and bassinets.
