2012 Honda CR-V Commercial: Where Grandma Grew Up

Honda’s Leaplist marketing offensive continues with yet more strange things you should do in your 2012 CR-V crossover. This time, the box ticked is getting grandma to the house she grew up in. Over the duration of the minute-long commercial, the caring grandson is pestered and nagged by the old woman. But the “touching” is what makes this ad “special”.
We’re not really moved by this, and we’d never undertake this sort of journey with an elderly family member in a slow crossover. We’d take a Nissan GT-R and film a hooning video that’s viral material at its best.

“We all have a few things we'd like to get to before leaping into life's next chapter. Maybe it's skydiving. Maybe it's Mardi Gras. Maybe it's learning to Salsa. We call it your Leap List. It's everything you wanna do before everything you oughta do,” Honda says.

The brand new fourth-generation Honda CR-V made its debut at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, showing a more upscale appearance, combined with a revised engine range that’s more efficient. This crossover comes with a fresh 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine with 184 hp and, which is mated to a five-speed auto.
