Top 3 upgrades that make the 2018 Honda CR-V drive better

Top 3 upgrades that make the 2018 Honda CR-V drive better

While we were at the wheel of the all-new 2018 Honda CR-V recently, we noticed the rather car-like steering response from this crossover. Of course, before we tread any further, here are the links to read more about the petrol and diesel models. But, in this episode we share the pointers which collectively make the 2018 CR-V feel so nimble.

1. VGR steering

Honda has incorporated the use of dual pinion electric power steering, and more importantly, Variable Gear Ratio steering (VGR). VGR steering allows automatic alteration of the steering ratio and angle depending on the car’s speed. This means there’s less effort to steer, reduced risk of over-steer (at higher speeds) and better cornering control.

2. Dual tube dampers

The 2018 Honda CR-V gets a well-judged suspension set-up that consists of a front MacPherson strut which is assisted by a rear multi-link set-up that uses what Honda calls ‘frequency response dampers’ (all four ends). These dual tube dampers allow the thinner tube to work while encountering low frequency bumps, while the larger tube is self-engaged (mechanically) when going over large bumps.

3. Rear floating sub-frame

Where the new CR-V’s rear floating sub-frame essentially makes the difference, is the manner in which it has been tuned to reduce vibrations which emanate from the damper set-up. What also helps reduce the unpleasant judders are the liquid seal compliance bushes used at all four ends.
