Exterior view of the 2022 Honda CR-V

With the combination of Honda's legendary reliability and America's love for SUVs, it's no wonder the Honda CR-V has been a top-selling vehicle for the past couple of decades.

 It embodies the brand's fun-to-drive philosophy, offers intelligent all-wheel drive, and is more spacious than ever. Throw into the mix Honda's third-generation hybrid system and you've got a vehicle that's more than ready to meet the varied and often complex demands of your family's busy life.

As a continuation of last year's model, there aren't any major changes to cover for the 2022 CR-V. But it's still worth going over the lineup's full offerings in detail so you can find the version that best matches your lifestyle.

2022 Honda CR-V Trims

For the 2022 model year, the Honda CR-V is available in five trims, while the CR-V Hybrid makes use of only the top three trims.

Honda CR-V (gas) trims:

  • LX (2WD or AWD)
  • Special Edition (2WD or AWD)
  • EX (2WD or AWD)
  • EX-L (2WD or AWD)
  • Touring (AWD only)

Honda CR-V Hybrid trims:

  • EX-L (AWD only)

In terms of standard equipment, the trims have remained largely unchanged from the previous model year, with the exception that AWD is now standard on the Touring model for 2022.

Each trim level offers the same core performance and safety that you've come to expect from CR-V. And as you move through the lineup, additional benefits are presented in the form of enhanced exterior styling as well as upgraded technology and interior amenities.
And because everyone's lifestyle needs are different, CR-V offers eight additional accessory packages to further tailor aspects such as exterior accents, illumination, all-season protection, cargo management, and more.

Starting MSRP for the 2022 Honda CR-V LX is $25,750, while the flagship Touring model has a starting MSRP of $35,550.

2022 Honda CR-V Performance

Ask any Honda fan and they'll tell you that the peppy engine is the key highlight of all of the brand's vehicles. The 2022 CR-V keeps that trend going with a 190-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that's responsive and fun.

The CR-V Hybrid ups total system power to 212 horsepower by utilizing a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle engine paired with an electric motor. The result is responsive acceleration and improved fuel efficiency. It's rated at an EPA-estimated 40 mpg city, which is an increase of 13 mpg over the gasoline version with AWD.
Speaking of AWD, the CR-V utilizes real-time intelligent control to optimize grip across a variety of surfaces so the only thing you need to worry about is stepping on the accelerator pedal. Equipped with basically an on-demand AWD system, the CR-V starts by sending power to the rear wheels and then analyzes different data points, like steering angle, slope or wheel spin, to send torque where it's needed. All of this happens in the background at any speed, and in the most seamless and invisible way possible.

In addition, CR-V Hybrid offers three selectable drive modes (ECON, Sport, and EV) so you can prioritize fuel economy, engine performance, or all-electric operation depending on your current needs and conditions.

Another important safety feature that's standard on all CR-V models is the multi-angle rearview camera.
