Believe it or not there are many of us who have zero desire to have that Panoramic roof on our cars. I can count on one hand without using all my fingers how many times I opened the moonroof on my 2012. I think I only opened once or twice just to see if it would actually work. Sun glare, wind noise and turbulence, all together unpleasant.agree!!! and i know my wife would love the heated steering wheel and the Pano roof which is so much better than this small moonroof
I think Honda has a preference of selling older models first. I'm sure the motivation isn't what you're describing. The motivation is, can we increase our margins and shareholder value.Canada has pano roof and rear heated seats for their touring model. and it is actually cheaper when you do the conversion to USD lol.
No excuse for Honda not to just give it to the USA except waiting for the next year or 2 so it can convince people to buy the latest year instead of the previous for a discount.
I agree! the USDM CR-V Touring should have come with them as well. Two questions; 1: Would these fit the US/Canadian bumper + electrical fitting? And 2: If so, where can we buy them?!?Only feature I would have liked to see on My Canadian Touring is Led Fog Lights- stock ones look so out of sync with Led head lights.
Different strokes...The panoramic roof was an absolute must for me on the car as I love all the light, especially during our long overcast Canadian winters. I would never buy a car without it (actually I did and suffered for a couple decades with it).
It is very rare for anyone to ride in my back seat. Heat back there would be a waste of money for me. Also, my car lives in a garage that never gets cold, even in the winter. Heated steering wheel? Naw, another wasted option...for me. We are all different in what we want and "need" in a car. Aren't we lucky to have all the choices we do? Some of us who are older remember the time when a car company like Chevy made one sized car. You had three trim levels and that was it. One basic size to fit all and a limited amount of options.
You don't have to buy a Honda. You have so many good choices, go find the car that fits your needs. With Honda here in the US there is the Acura option. Why would Honda put too much stuff on a CR-V if they were going to sale up "upscale" Acura RDX at a higher price? Actually we looked at the RDX but my wife asked a very simple question..."Why?". The CR-V gave far more for the money and she liked its looks better. Its all a matter of personal tastes. If you don't like what the CR-V has for the price...go buy something else!
BTW, you see where Toyoda took the same route as Honda. They no longer off the Rav with a V-6 as they use to. Now if you want that car with a V-6 you have to go "upscale" and get the "Lexus" version. Its the same basic car just with upscale fitments to get the price up. After all, car companies stay in business by operating at a profit. Oh, just like everyone else!
