That thing is huge inside compared to the Escape. I like that Honda brought back a volume knob. Change those interior bulbs to LED. Makes a huge difference. I picked up a bunch of Phillips ones at Menards.

I drove it for the first time yesterday... It's good. too good. like crazy quiet, plenty of power, so much tech, etc. it's just out of control. it's SILENT inside at all speeds, the collision detection, lane centering and adaptive cruise are perfect... the media system with android auto is seriously amazing.

yyeah. @Bru you were of course right, just had to drive it.

Curious how much bigger it is inside than an Escape. I actually parked next to an older squared off Escape yesterday and they were noticibly larger than my 2015 is.

I just looked at these. In the CRV I can adjust the driver's seat to where I like it, then hop in back and I can still cross my legs. In the Escape, I can't get in the back with the front seat where I like it.

The CRV is also wider up front, and you can see the hood creases. Just feels like a bigger class vehicle.

I never would have thought I would like a Honda let alone a CRV, but I love my DD '06 EX 5spd manual
