The New 2022 Honda CR-V

The new 2022 Honda CR-V is an accomplished entry into the compact SUV class. It competes well with its rivals across the board, and truly stands out, it offers everything potential drivers want in a spacious, economical car with excellent standard features.

Available in five unique trim levels, the new 2022 Honda CR-V comes with even more options for those who want a specific driving experience. From performance packages to luxury upgrades, there's a configuration for every lifestyle.

But what makes the standard CR-V such a high-quality SUV?

Stylish and Spacious

Generosity is one of the 2022 Honda CR-V's standout features. The interior is both roomy and stylish. It owes its tasteful design and capabilities to a well-curated list of features. Everything is built with quality materials, from the faux-wood accents in the base model to the luxury textiles in the upper trims.

The front seats have been sculpted to mold around the driver, which complements the CR-V's receptive handling. While the base model wasn't engineered for roaring acceleration, everything has been refined for more assured ride quality, including the interior.

As for practicality, the extra space makes this SUV a fantastic option for families too. The new 2022 Honda CR-V is a class leader in luggage space and cargo volume. The back seat can fit up to 10 carry-on suitcases upright. For even more rear space, these seats are easy to fold down.

Tech and Safety Features

As for the features packed into the spacious interior, the 2022 CR-V upholds Honda's fine reputation in safety and tech. The standard safety features and quality design earned the CR-V a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Standard features in the new 2022 Honda CR-V include:

● Forward-collision warning

● Automated emergency braking

● Adaptive cruise control

● Lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist

● Rearview camera (with rear cross-traffic alert optional)

On the tech side of things, the 2022 Honda CR-V has plenty of fun upgrades on offer. The infotainment system is built around a 5.0-inch touchscreen for intuitive control of audio, visuals, and cabin features. After excluding it from last year's model, Honda has reintroduced the rotary volume knob for those who prefer physical controls too.

Drivers can connect their mobile devices either through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Whether it's for hands-free control or easier navigation, the wireless connectivity produces crisp audio through the four-speaker system. While the standard model optimizes more compact tech, the design quality of the infotainment system truly takes off in subsequent trims.

Fuel Economy

Lastly, it's impossible to talk about the 2022 Honda CR-V without discussing its incredible fuel economy. This is where its performance truly competes in the compact SUV class. Both of the CR-V's engine options are designed to maximize fuel usage so you can enjoy refined driving for longer between stops.

The front-wheel-drive option is only available with a gas engine. It still registers 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel-drive model isn't far behind at 28 mpg and 32 mpg for city and highway driving respectively.

That's the gas option for AWD. The hybrid model is rated around 40 mpg (city) and 35 mpg (highway) for the most impressive fuel economy yet.

The New 2022 Honda CR-V Trims
