I recently got a Vizio 70" E701i from costco and it fit nicely in my 2012 CR-V. You should have no problems with this TV fitting in a CR-V. I returned the TV a week later though....
Plasma have to be vertical. It's too tall for a 2012 CRV. We used a 2004 CRV, the boxy one, and it barely fit, not just vertically, but we had to push on the trunk lid to close it.
