Not a rebadged Miata. FWD, and I think it was based on the 323 platform. Pretty crappy car, overall. About 1/5 of a Miata

240 HP vs. 300 HP.... Turbo 4 vs. Turbo 6.. I know which one I would pick.
We have a long discussion on that here:
You can spend a few hours reading that... but, in the end, it will probably be cheaper for your parents to sell the car, then give you the money to buy another car in the U.S.
The CR-V doesn't have a "true" AWD system that will actually help handling in the rain. It has a simple system that is FWD until it senses front-wheel slippage, then routes power to the rear wheels. It's useful if you get real winter weather..
I don't mean to denigrate the system. It's the type of AWD system that most people actually need. The fuel penalty for this system is very small, as well.
If your dealer stocks mostly AWD models, then you should probably buy it, just for utility and the resale value. If your dealer has mostly FWD models, then that is a good sign that AWD doesn't mean a lot where you live.
So.. where do you live?
