Trivia Answer:

B. Picnic Table


The Honda CR-V tried something new when it debuted in 1997. From 1997 to 2006, every single Honda CR-V included a folding picnic table tucked away under the cargo area -  the cargo floor doubled as a picnic table.


Honda introduced its first compact crossover — the CR-V — in 1997. But compared to today’s model, the 1997 CR-V was pretty basic. It came with one trim level, five seats, four doors, a 2.0-liter inline-four engine, and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The first-generation CR-V’s engine made only 126 horsepower, which resulted in an 11.3-second 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time.


But the picnic table wasn’t the only strange feature on the Honda CR-V. According to HotCars, the automaker tried installing a shower that consisted of a plastic hose, water jug, and showerhead. It ran on a 12-volt socket and was marketed as a great extra to hose off muddy boots or rinse off the family dog.
