2019 Honda CR-V MODEL OVERVIEW

New for 2019

We expect Honda to refresh the CR-V in 2020, leaving the 2019 model year with minimal updates.

Trim Levels and Features

The LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trims will likely return for the 2019 model year, with the possible addition of a special-edition or Sport trim. The base LX trim on the 2018 model is powered by a 2.4-liter I-4 and comes standard with a 5.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, Bluetooth, LED daytime running lights, a USB port, and a rearview camera. As with other non-LX trims, the top Touring trim is powered by a 1.5-liter turbo-four engine and comes equipped with leather-trimmed upholstery, a hands-free power liftgate, LED headlights, a nine-speaker premium audio system, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The EX trim offers lots of value and includes blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, a quick-entry system, a driver attention monitor, heated front seats, Honda Sensing suite of driver assist tech, a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Powertrain options on the 2018 model include a 184-hp 2.4-liter I-4 found in the base LX model and a 190-hp 1.5-liter turbo-four that powers the other trims. A CVT backs both engines with front- or all-wheel drive. Fuel economy ratings for 2018 range from 25/31 mpg city/highway to 28/34 mpg. A CR-V hybrid is offered in other markets, but it's not yet clear if we'll get a version of this model.

Safety

The Honda Sensing package of driver-assist safety features for 2018 consists of automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and a road departure mitigation system. Blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert and automatic high beams are also standard on the EX trim and up on the 2018 model.

Technology

For the 2018 model year, the base LX trim comes equipped with a 5.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Bluetooth. The rest of the trims include a 7.0-inch touchscreen with SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and four USB ports. A navigation system with HD Digital Traffic is available and comes standard on the top Touring trim. The EX and EX-L trims include a 180-watt audio system but the Touring trim comes with a 330-watt premium audio system. The above features should carry over into 2019.

What We Think

The Honda CR-V is the 2018 Motor Trend SUV of the Year. We concluded our winner story about the CR-V by saying, "It's clear that Honda sweats the details. The CR-V is not just roomy, well-built, and well-equipped. It's also thoughtfully conceived and executed," we continued. "It has space for your stuff. It won't punish you at the pump. It keeps you safe on the road. It's packed with features at an affordable price. It's even fun to drive when you want it to be. And it's made in the U.S. and Canada to boot," we added. "Overall, it's the best in one of the toughest classes around," we said. "That's saying something."
