What the Critics Say

Today’s CR-V drives with greater refinement and sophistication than past versions. It’s more comfortable, there’s less wind and road noise, and the turbo engine’s low-end power results in quieter, less strained noises when driven around town.” – Autoblog

A stylish and spacious interior creates a cool and comfortable environment in the CR-V. Quality materials and a familiar layout combine for a contemporary look and feel. A tasteful balance of faux-wood accents, chromed plastic, and brushed-satin finishes looked particularly upscale in the Touring version we tested.” – Car and Driver

There are no updates or changes to the proven Honda CR-V for the 2022 model year. After a significant refresh last year, the CR-V soldiers on as one of the most popular options for drivers looking for the ultimate compact crossover SUV.
