The 2022 Honda CR-V Overview

September 2nd, 2021 by

The Honda CR-V has established itself over recent years as a popular compact SUV. With its spacious cabin, comfortable passenger seating, and fuel-efficient engine, this vehicle is ideal for small families and city driving. The 2022 edition looks set to be yet another impressive vehicle. Here’s a look at some of its key features.

Engine and Performance Of The 2022 Honda CR-V

The CR-V’s engine is one of its most praised features. It’s a 190-horsepower turbocharged V-4 with peppy acceleration. The continuously variable transmission ensures a smooth ride whether you’re in the city or on the highway. You can choose between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

The 2022 CR-V hasn’t been tested for fuel economy yet, but we expect it will perform much like the 2021 CR-V. Last year’s compact SUV from Honda managed 28 mpg on city roads and 34 mpg on the highway in front-wheel drive, and 27 mpg and 32 mpg in all-wheel drive respectively. These figures are great for the compact SUV class.

Infotainment Technology

In the 2021 CR-V, the base trim was equipped with a 5-inch screen. Access to a 7-inch touch screen and smartphone compatibility was only available by stepping up to the EX trim. Speculation ahead of this fall’s release suggests that Honda may introduce smartphone compatibility with the base LX trim, but that remains to be seen.

Other connectivity options include Bluetooth and a USB port in the base setup. You can add an optional USB port in the front and two in the rear of the cabin by upgrading to one of the CR-V’s higher trims.

The CR-V also offers several premium stereo options for you to choose from, including six-speaker, eight-speaker, and nine-speaker options. Satellite radio, HD radio, and wireless device charging are also available.

Seating and Cargo Storage In The 2022 Honda CR-V

Despite being a compact SUV, the CR-V boasts an impressive amount of space in the cabin. Five passengers can be seated comfortably in its two rows. Adult passengers will have plenty of legroom in the second row for longer trips, and the rear seats are also well equipped for installing child car seats.

Behind the rear row, you’ll find an expansive 39 cubic feet of storage space. This will be perfect for your weekly grocery shopping trip or luggage for the family to head off on vacation. If you need to transport larger items, you can fold down the second row to open up a maximum of 75.8 cubic feet of storage space.

Driver-Assistance Features

The CR-V is equipped with Honda’s Sensing driver-assistance system, which includes useful features like automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. The automatic emergency braking system will apply your brakes if it detects a potential collision up ahead, while adaptive cruise control adjusts your speed on the highway so you maintain a safe distance from vehicles in front of you.

The CR-V’s automatic high-beam headlights will help you keep a good view of the road ahead whatever the weather is. Its lane departure warning and lane keep assist features also come in handy during highway driving. To make your job of maneuvering your Honda into a tight parking spot that bit easier, you can upgrade to front and rear parking sensors in the CR-V.

Trims and pricing Of The 2022 Honda CR-V

The CR-V is likely to be offered in the same four trims like the 2021 model: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. According to KBB, the estimated price range is expected to be $26,000 to around $34,000.

The LX trim features a six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control, and a four-speaker stereo. The base trim also provides you with many of the key driver safety features, like forwarding collision warning and adaptive cruise control.

If you step up to the EX-L trim, you can enjoy heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a moonroof. The EX-L also features proximity keyless entry, which can make the job of getting into your CR-V with your hands full much easier. The EX-L’s starting price in 2021 was about $2,500 more than the LX trim. Many buyers opted for the upgrade due to the additional entertainment features, such as the touch screen and smart phone compatibility.

Fans of a luxury cabin may prefer to move up to the EX-L trim, which features leather upholstery and a power-adjustable passenger’s seat. There’s also additional benefits for you when you’re sitting behind the wheel, including memory settings for the driver’s seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A premium eight-speaker stereo also comes standard.

The Range-topping Touring trim includes all of the accessories and technology this Honda has to offer. You’ll have access to a hands-free liftgate and rain-sensing windshield wipers for extra convenience. In addition, you get a nine-speaker stereo and wireless device charging to keep your devices running while you’re on the go. A build-in satellite navigation system will remove any doubt about the best route for you to take. If all that isn’t enough, there’s also a heated steering wheel and interior ambient lighting.
