Originally launched in North America more than two decades ago, the Honda CR-V crossover has staying power. Built on the agile Honda Civic chassis, the CR-V has maintained all of its features for 2019. If you’re looking for a thoughtfully-designed vehicle that offers functional storage and spot-on driving excellence, the CR-V is a great choice. With a starting MSRP of $24,3501, the CR-V delivers an array of features for your money.

The Perfect Ride for…

The driver looking for a fun and well-designed crossover with the road confidence of a larger vehicle. Time tested and dramatically improved in the most recent redesign, it’s clear that Honda doesn’t shy away from big changes when it sees a customer need. The 2019 CR-V is everything a driver needs in one versatile package, so whether you’re in the market for a new driver or for yourself, the CR-V checks the boxes across the board.

Drive & Handling

Featuring a 2.4-liter, naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), the base CR-V arrives standard as a two-wheel drive model. If your frequent driving conditions require an all-wheel drive approach, an AWD powertrain is also available.

Offering ample 184 horsepower with 180 lb-ft of torque, the 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC® engine can tackle most everyday driving conditions with ease. At 26 city/32 hwy/28 combined MPG (25 city/31 hwy/27 combined MPG rating* for the AWD version)2, the CR-V sips fuel with an economical approach. If you want more power, the 190-horsepower turbocharged engine on the EX, EX-L, or Touring trims will be right up your alley.

Key Features

Hill Start Assist

Honda’s Hill Start Assist (HSA) improves driving safety and takes the worry out of the equation when driving on rolling terrain or hilly city streets. By holding brake pressure when stopped on an incline or descent for a brief period of time, HSA helps with tricky uphill standing starts. This allows you to move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator without your vehicle rolling backward, potentially saving both your car and the one behind you from damage.

Maximize Fuel Efficiency with Eco Assist™

Honda’s Eco Assist™ System is a fuel efficiency information system that helps you establish and maintain optimal fuel economy. The system monitors your driving style and gives you visual feedback on how your driving relates to the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. As you monitor the data from the Eco Assist™ System, you can make adjustments to ensure you're getting the most bang for your fuel buck.

Flexible Configuration

The CR-V is certainly roomy. The interior has a surprisingly big cargo area, especially for a compact SUV, offering a class-leading 39.2 cubic feet behind the second row and 75.8 cubic feet when the seats are folded down. The interior is also a perfect fit for families with a variety of storage spaces, including a large center console bin.

Touring Trim: Everything You Could Want

The top-of-the-line CR-V Touring trim is available in five metallic and five pearl colors, and it includes all features standard on the EX-L trim, plus hands-free access power tailgate, automatic LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ (standard in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico), roof rails, 330-watt premium audio system with nine speakers, dual chrome exhaust finishers, 1.5-liter VTEC® turbo 4-cylinder engine, CVT with Sport Mode, and available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™.

Alternative Options

If a larger SUV sounds more like what you need, take a closer look at the Honda Pilot. The Pilot seats seven or eight passengers comfortably; it’s in the SUV family but feels more like a smooth sedan. If cargo room is at the top of your must-have list, test drive the Honda Odyssey and experience the ingenuity of efficient and considerate comfort for you and your family.
