2022 Honda CR-V Review

In a crowded SUV market, few options stand out like the Honda CR-V. A perfect mid-size option for individuals and families alike searching for spacious interiors and the latest technology, the CR-V has been a consistently popular choice for years now. With the release of the latest model year, the 2022 Honda CR-V, buyers have an opportunity to upgrade and enjoy years of reliable service. Find out what you need to know about this exciting SUV with our in-depth review.

Performance & Fuel Economy

How does the new CR-V perform on the road, and how often can you expect to head back to the pump? Honda’s excellence in engineering is on full display in this category. For non-hybrid editions, drivers will find a 1.5L turbocharged engine capable of generating 190 horsepower. Trims with this engine can experience an EPA-estimated rating of 28 mpg in the city, 34 on the highway, and a combined rating of 30 mpg**. The CR-V hybrid has dual electric motors and a 2.0L engine with 212 horsepower and 40 city/35 highway/38 combined fuel economy ratings.**

What’s Different From 2021?

Sometimes, vehicles can undergo significant changes from year to year as manufacturers seek to refresh their lineups and add new features to their vehicles. Before diving into the details of the 2022 CR-V, you may be wondering if there is anything important to note that differs from the 2021 edition.

There are no major differences when comparing the previous model year to the current line-up of 2022 CR-Vs. For buyers interested in the Touring trim, note that front-wheel drive is no longer available as of the 2022 CR-V, as all-wheel drive now comes standard at that trim. This minor modification is the only apparent change to note from year to year.


How much can you expect to pay for the new CR-V if you want a brand-new vehicle? Investigating the manufacturer’s price for each trim level will give you a good idea of what to expect when you arrive at the dealership. Remember to factor in other costs, such as additional packages and optional features you may wish to add to your vehicle. Tax, title and tag fees aren’t included in MSRP, so be sure to add those numbers into your mental calculations, too. Check out our quick reference pricing guide below.

Safety Features

Staying safe on the road is everyone’s goal, and today’s vehicles give drivers more ways to remain safe and alert when driving than ever before. That’s true, especially for the CR-V, which is packed with many safety features across trim levels as part of the standard inclusion of the Honda Sensing suite. What will you find as a part of this package?

  • The Road Departure Mitigation System, an assisting driving technology that can assist drivers in certain situations
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™, which helps drivers apply emergency braking power in potential collision situations
  • Adaptive cruise control to maintain safe following distances
  • Lane-keeping assist, similar to road departure mitigation
  • Forward collision warnings

The CR-V also features other safety technologies, including a wide-angle rearview camera, anti-lock brakes and automatic high beams. On the EX, EX-L and Touring trims, drivers also enjoy a blind spot monitoring system. Passive safety systems are in abundance as well. Advanced front and driver-side airbags combine with side curtain airbags to provide robust protection in the event of a crash – even a roll-over. Add in the robust body engineering, and it’s easy to see why the CR-V earned an overall safety rating of 5 stars out of 5 from the NHTSA.


More technology is packed into the CR-V than just the items used to make your driving experience safer. On the EX-L and Touring trims, drivers will find features such as the auto-dimming rearview mirror and gentle ambient lighting. One-touch turn signals make it easy to indicate your intentions to other drivers quickly. Wireless phone charging and plentiful USB charging ports round out the technology features on the CR-V.

Interior Comfort & Cargo

Spacious seats with 40 inches of legroom in every location mean that you can fill up your CR-V and still have an enjoyable ride for passengers. Automated climate control keeps the temperature right where you need it, too.

In all CR-Vs, drivers enjoy a spacious 39 cubic feet of cargo space while retaining access to the rear seats. By folding the rear seats down, you gain access to nearly double the space at a whopping 75 cubic feet of space. Packing up for a weekend camping trip or a long-haul road trip is always easy with all that room.


Connect to your CR-V to enjoy access to your media and apps with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration alongside Bluetooth audio capabilities. Enjoy incredible sound quality with a 9-speaker, 330-watt system that includes a built-in sub for extra bass on the Touring edition. Lower trims enjoy a still fantastic 180-watt system with six to eight speakers depending on the model. A 5-inch LCD screen complements the base trim, while other models receive a 7-inch touchscreen display for information and entertainment control.
