    Hello All I am new to Honda and my first car I purchased is a 2014 Honda CR-V EX AWD. So far I love the car and is very impressed with the fuel economy for this car. Before this car I had a 2012 Ford Focus Hatchback Titanium model, never again Ford.

    Looking forward to engaging conversations about Honda vehicles.

    Aspen - Welcome to Honda Karma :welcome:

    Always good to have some members from over the pond as such. Tell us some more about her. I assume she is brand new being a 2014 model? Is she a family car? Just something for a bit of fun?

    Look forward to seeing more pictures of her in the Club Garage and hearing more about her.

    Welcome to the club @AspenK24, you're going to make many of our CR-V owners jealous with the K24, across the pond here we only have the N16, N22 and R20 :Laughing:

    Look forward to seeing some pictures and hearing about future mods/accessories going on!

    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    About my CR-V - I bought it last year exactly one year actually today. A Canadian EX model is probably fitted slightly different from other countries. Some of the major features this Canadian model has are sunroof, automatic climate control, 17" alloy wheels and heated seats and of course it has all the usual power everything. So far I had added a OEM hood deflector and OEM roof rails and cross bars. I now have 21,500 KM on it. Just came back from a 5000KM road trip and was very impressed with the fuel economy this thing produces. I think its the same or if not better than the 2012 Ford Focus I had with a 2.0L engine (gas)

    I'd like to get a few more accessories on her by next summer as fall/winter is upon us here where I am and it too cold to to do any modifications/upgrades out side. I still have to get my winter tires on soon before it snows!

    Really? I'm jealous that you guys have the diesel option. Who wants to switch motors. lol.

    Don't say things like that, you'll have them lining up outside :Laughing: From next year we'll be getting a new revised N16B which pushes around 160hp, which I believe is about the same as the CR-V K24.

    Ah, I struggle to track all the K24 variants used across there. Believe it's the A1/Z1 around the 160 mark.

    Welcome to Honda Karma @AspenK24

    Wow a K24 CR-V, now why didn't they offer that option here. So that means K24 swap into a CR-V is possible :Grin::OTT:
