Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Honda's CR-V was redesigned for 2012. At that time the five-seat compact crossover got new styling inside and out. Offered with either front- or all-wheel drive, all CR-Vs are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The CR-V is offered in LX, EX and EX-L trim levels. Competitors include the Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Tucson. New for 2013 The CR-V sees no significant changes for 2013. Exterior The 2012 CR-V's styling revisions eliminated one of its more controversial design features — the prior generation's underbite front end was ditched in favor of a more conventional grille that's bounded at its upper edges by new headlights.
The CR-V's profile looks different thanks to changes in the crossover's greenhouse. Whereas the prior generation's side glass arced gracefully lower at the rear, there's now a kink in the window line that draws attention to the rear roof pillars and the restyled taillights that climb them. There's a new liftgate, too, which has a modern look. Exterior features include:
Standard 16-inch steel wheels; optional 17-inch alloy wheels
Standard folding power side mirrors
Optional power moonroof
Optional roof rails
Optional fog lights
Optional body-colored door handles
Optional rear privacy glass
Interior Like the exterior, the CR-V's cabin is an evolution of the former design. The door panels, steering wheel and dashboard have a new look, but materials quality doesn't seem nice enough in places for an all-new model. Honda did, however, significantly simplify the folding procedure for the backseat. Interior features include:
Standard air conditioning; optional dual-zone automatic air conditioning
Standard Bluetooth phone connectivity including streaming audio
Standard CD stereo with USB port, MP3 jack and Pandora integration
Standard cruise control
Standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel
Standard center console
Standard 60/40-split folding backseat
Optional power driver's seat
Optional leather seats with front seat heaters
Optional navigation system
Optional backseat entertainment system
Under the Hood All CR-V trim levels are powered by a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that teams with a five-speed automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:
Engine uses regular gas
Hill start assist
Electric power steering
1,500-pound towing capacity
Safety Standard safety features include:
Side curtain airbags with rollover sensor
Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
Electronic stability system with traction control
