General impression 2018 CRV and comparing with 09 crv

overall not happy with LX interior. Really substandard. Was not expecting this china like quality.
My 2018 was made in canada and 09 was made in Japan.

So I paid 3300 more on OTD between when I bought 09 CRV LX AWD and 18 CRV LX AWD.


What did I get for that -

LED lights, color LCD with camera
17 inch alloy wheels
electronic parking brake
bluetooth, usb
automatic climate control
AWD vs 4WD
184 HP vs 166 HP
curb weight 3421 vs ( must be due to CVT being lighter)

what did I lose for that -

automatic transm ( CVT is cheaper so in loss category)
CD audio system
MP3 aux jack

quality of interior - plastic looks real cheap (like dollar store chinese junk). really disappointed that honda decided to go for this junk on canadian made cars.

quality of cloth seats - pure trash, hurts your body that rough. 09 CRV cloth seats were much nicer.

    For me, I was never fond of Honda cloth seats. Seemed their leather seats were much more comfortable if you had to spend any time in there. But cars are in many ways are getting chintzier. I believe the leather option on RAV4 is now actually a vinyl variant. German's have been doing that too; "leatherette" or some such nomenclature. Seat bottoms seem shorter as well on many cars.
