New Cozy Car

New Honda CR-V at first glance gives the impression of solidity. In the car there is nothing child: he is one hundred percent solid, solid, grown-up. Owning such a machine is uniquely speaks of her owner, as a man held and successful. Obviously, for the image has to pay: the price of CR-V 2010 model year range. 
In the maximum configuration the car is equipped with electric sunroof, leather interior, Parktronic, powered driver's seat, electrical lumbar support for driver subwoofer ... That is practically all you need for comfort. However, we went for a test model in the Elegance version with a two-liter engine and five-speed automatic transmission. This car is worth 1 million 195 thousand rubles. (That is cheaper than a top at 203 thousand rubles). And it was not nothing of the above. No hatch, no leather seats, no power seats or a subwoofer, or even Parktronic, not to mention the navigation! And it is up to 1 million 195 thousand! Especially disappointed with Parktronic, without which unfold in a car longer than 4,5 meters and a width of 1.82 meters was extraordinarily difficult.
