I guess the recess area above the radio is for the NAVI unit I wonder what goes their if you do not get the NAV system? Storage maybe?
I believe it will have the time clock and radio station information screen with a little storage spot to place a phone or device in front of it. We have that same recess area on our 2011 Pilot (no nav).I guess the recess area above the radio is for the NAVI unit I wonder what goes their if you do not get the NAV system? Storage maybe?
I have to agree. Getting rid of that space will tighten the feel up front. The console will divide the entire front cargo space, making it feel smaller. Also, where will the ladies put their purses!! My wife does the same thing!One of the things I like about my 2011 is there is floor space between the console and gear shift. My wife's purse goes there instead of on the console which irritates me. That space is gone in the above picture. Small thing, but I'm feeling a little better for not having waited for the new model.
We will not know what comes over to our side this year till it gets here. I would not trade for the first year anyway, I would wait at least one if not two years after a major redesign.I highly doubt that's the USDM version, so there's probably some minor differences between Euro/JDM vs USDM.
I wonder how much money i'd lose by changing to a 2012 with navi
Oh, on that point, I couldn't agree more. We got a roaring good deal on our 2011. In this regard, I'm sure the 2012 CR-V is going to be a really good Honda, and as a result there will be a strong demand for the new model with the K25 201 hp motor. Consequently, I can't imagine there's any way we'd be able to buy the one we'd want for anything approaching what we paid for our 2011. A couple of years from now, on the other hand, I'm sure discounts will again be the order of the day, and assuming the new 2.5 motor is a good one, we'll see what's available. In the meantime, we're enjoying the one we have a lot.Changes don't seem significant enough to warrant waiting for the 2012 model. Glad I didn't wait and took advantage of the great financing on 2011 models.
Hill assist? What does that do? Drop you out of overdrive? If a car needs a "hill assist", then it's under powered!Will it come with "hill assist" feature for the 4th Gen V??? I really like that in RAV4, and the "hill assist" is almost "standard features" in most German cars now...
Since when was AWD a new option? Mine has it. It's great if you're just going straight, but no good in a turn ie. the front wheels slip so the rear ones kick in to keep pushing you straight.The new optional all-wheel-drive system could be a big plus though for those who need to drive on snowy roads...
