The 2019 Honda CRV is the kind of compact SUV, that everyone will love to buy, in their lifetime. This compact 5 seater SUV, has a very roomy interior, along with great driving pleasure. Combined with the safety provided by the car’s impressive crash test results and excellent real-world fuel economy – it is no joke that the Honda CRV is held in high regards among the customers. Even as competitors have inched closer slowly and slowly, the CRV still remains highly competitive. This is even after three years into the current model’s design cycle.
The 2019 CRV is very much available in base model LX, mainstream EX, and EX-L. Combined with that are feature packed Touring trims, each available with front or all-wheel drive options. So, without further ado, let’s jump on the main features of the 2019 Honda CRV.
2019 Honda CRV Engine And Specifications
The 2019 Honda CRV comes in four basic flavors. There are turbo and non-turbo variants with either front or all-wheel drive. The turbocharged engine in 2019, which is available in CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels, provides very decent power with good fuel economy.
Base CRV LXs use a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine. This engine is rated at 184 BHP of power and 180 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a continuously variable transmission or commonly known as CVT. There’s nothing wrong with this setup, which delivers good acceleration. The only disadvantage being that the 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine is fitted to EX and higher trims is a miles away in terms of refinement and real-world performance. The turbo engine pumps out 190 BHP of power and 179 pound-feet of torque. This makes the automatic transmission a very good vehicle when the power is called for. And when the power is not called for, it will provide a very low performance. It will have a top speed of 124 MPH. Also, it will be able to do 0-60 MPH in just 7.6 seconds.
The car has a three-spoke steering wheel on the inside. The car can easily cut around corners with ease. It is fairly light and quick as well. The car has an optional all-wheel drive as well. The ground clearance is 7.8 inches. The car comes with the option for 18-inch alloy wheels as well. Mileage can be 25-28 MPG in the city, 31-34 MPG on the highways, and 27-30 MPG combined as a whole.
2019 Honda CRV Features And Interior
The CRV shines very much on the inside with supportive seats, great cargo space, along with a low liftover. The car has an excellent outward vision, standard automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control on CRV EX and higher trims. These EX and higher trims also change the base model’s dated 5-inch screen for a 7-inch touchscreen. There is also support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The narrow roof pillars, combined with a high seating position, and a low sculptured dashboard gives the CRV a vote of confidence when driving through the highways. The EX and higher trims feature 12-way power adjustment, mainly for the driver’s seat. There is also a heating option for both front seats. The second row has excellent space for most passengers seating there. Folding the rear seats will expand the CRV’s cargo area from just measly 39.2 cubes to 75.8 cubes. There are power windows and locks, support for Bluetooth, power moonroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, etc. Thus, the features provided in this car is definitely more than enough for the common customer.
