Overview

The 2019 Honda CR-V is a triple threat: it packs a host of high-tech equipment, impressive fuel economy, and copious cargo space. As if that’s not enough, it also boasts contemporary styling and excellent road manners. Yes, the Honda CR-V ticks all the boxes for what constitutes an excellent crossover. Add two fuel-efficient powertrains, including a responsive turbocharged engine, and its faults are few. While the compact-crossover league is loaded with home-run hitters, the 2019 CR-V has the stats to be an MVP contender.

What’s New for 2019?

For 2019, the CR-V is virtually unchanged. The only minor update is a new exterior paint color called White Pearl. The compact Honda crossover also maintains its spot on our Editors’ Choice list, which highlights our favorite trucks, SUVs, and vans for 2019.

Honda CR-V Pricing and Which One to Buy

LX: $25,395
EX: $28,295
EX-L: $30,795
Touring: $33,795
The second-tier EX model is an excellent choice, as it offers upgraded tech and creature comforts. We think front-wheel drive is sufficient for most, but those living with harsh winters or who simply must have all-wheel drive can add it for $1300. The top-level Touring model may be the ultimate CR-V, but the EX is one heckuva deal. We wouldn’t even add any options because it comes well equipped with features such as heated front seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Honda’s suite of driver-assistance technology.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Likes: Exceptional road manners, responsive turbocharged engine, strong brakes.

Honda did its homework planting its first turbocharged engine in a CR-V and pairing it with one of the best continuously variable automatic transmissions (CVTs) available—praise we don’t give lightly. The base four-cylinder engine is less responsive but provides smooth operation. While most compact crossovers have meager towing limits, the Honda has one of the lowest at 1500 pounds.

Any parent moonlighting as a street racer might be disappointed with the CR-V’s acceleration. On the other hand, they—along with everyone else—will appreciate its refined ride, enthusiastic steering, and strong brakes. The composed and compliant ride of the CR-V makes for pleasant commutes, long or short. Its responsive brake pedal means you receive the stopping power you want when you ask for it.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Good to look at, good to drive, and good on gas. The CR-V is one of the most fuel-efficient compact crossover we’ve tested so far, and it’s not a hybrid—yet. Plus, the turbocharged version has better government ratings than the base engine. The more powerful CR-V earned 32 mpg on our 200-mile highway fuel loop, which is one of the best results in its class. That number combined with its 14.0-gallon tank should provide about 440 miles of highway driving range.
