The 2022 Honda CR-V will be majorly a carryover model, with prices starting at $25,750 for the base LX trim. The only change, set to be brought about in the lineup is that the CR-V Touring trim will get AWD as standard. Having said that, the 2022 CR-V will still be powered by the fuel-efficient and yet potent 1.5L turbocharged Inline-4 engine. Coming onto the interior, the compact SUV will still deliver a capacious cabin front, along with plenty of necessary creature comforts.



The model year 2023, however, is going to see the next generation of the popular SUV from Honda. The 2023 Honda CR-V brings new updates with all-new features, a longer wheelbase, and a stretched front end. According to rumors, buyers will also get a new hybrid petrol engine with all-wheel drive, which will be more fuel-efficient than the current CR-V Hybrid, and the 1.5L turbocharged engine would be carried forward too.

2022 Honda CR-V Buying Advice

The 2022 Honda CR-V will be a total carryover vehicle in terms of specs. However, all trims will get essentially equipped with features to match the price, and we believe it is a valuable addition to your garage. We would recommend you go in for the mid or top variants, with prices starting from $25,750 onwards.

2022 Honda CR-V Features

The CR-V has all the desirable qualities of the best compact SUVs: fuel efficiency, versatility, and plenty of the latest tech - Car And Driver

As the 2022 CR-V lineup remains unchanged, Honda offers the compact SUV in over 5 trims as well, namely LX, SE, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Prices for the same start from an MSRP of $25,750, and go all the way up to $35,550 for the top-most Touring trim. It offers a notable list of standard features and the base trim, which is priced at $25,750, turns out to be a valuable deal. The upcoming 2022 Honda CR-V is not equipped with any new additional set of features and continues with the same 1.5L turbocharged engine across all its trims, but you can also opt for a Hybrid engine.

2022 Honda CR-V Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The 2022 Honda CR-V is going to be carried forward with the potent and at the same time fuel-efficient 1.5L turbocharged engine unit that produces a total of 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft torque. It is mated with a CVT transmission and offers choices of both FWD and AWD drive types. The hybrid 2.0L engine is mated with two electric motors and produces 212 horsepower.

The 1.5L Turbo engine on the 2022 Honda CR-V pushes it from 0 to 60 mph in 9.3 seconds, which is nowhere close to being called fast. Although, there's plenty of refinement and the engine does not feel stressed in most situations. For better performance during launches, opt for the hybrid engine. It offers slightly better acceleration and amazing fuel economy. All we can hope for is that Honda brings out an even more potent engine setup for 2023, that's not only powerful but also aids in helping the CR-V to be damn near quick.

The Honda CR-V produces the most power, while Chevrolet Equinox produces the most torque. But the Chevy trades power for more torque at the lower end of the curve. This shows in the acceleration and fuel economy too, with Honda being more fuel-efficient than the Chevy, but also slower. The Nissan and Ford compact SUVs offer the exact same figures in terms of power.

2022 Honda CR-V Fuel Economy

6.0/10

We can expect the 2022 Honda CR-V's fuel efficiency to be the same as the outgoing model. The 1.5L Turbo inline-4 engine returns 28 MPG in the city, 34 MPG on the highway, and a combined 30 MPG. This is with the FWD setup. Add to it a decently sized 14-gallon fuel tank, and the 2022 CR-V can stretch up to 476 miles between fuel stops. Opt for the AWD setup, and the CR-V returns 27 and 32 MPG in the city and highway respectively. With the 2.0L hybrid engine, it manages to return 40 MPG city, 35 MPG highway, and a combined 38 MPG.

The Honda CR-V returns similar fuel efficiency as its rivals, despite trading off class-leading economy for the smallest gas tank. It is, in fact, one of the best offerings in the segment for its gas mileage. However, the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox equips itself with a 14.9-gallon tank yet fails to deliver the best range. That position is taken over by the Ford Escape.

2022 Honda CR-V Interior

9.0/10

A stylish and spacious interior creates a cool and comfortable environment in the CR-V - Car And Driver

The interior of the 2022 Honda CR-V is not expected to get any changes, both on the dimension front and the creature comfort front. The 2022 Honda CR-V seats five people quite comfortably. The seats offer much comfort with an adequate amount of legroom, knee room, under-thigh support, and enough shoulder room. The upper trim offers ventilated seats for the driver and front passenger too, so as for that, all the passengers can sit and enjoy long journeys.

The base LX variant gets standard air conditioning system, manually adjustable seats without ventilation function, and a heating option. The upper trim will get leather upholstery with power-adjustable heated and ventilated seats with a leather-wrapped steering wheel as well. The upper trim feels more premium with lots of luxury touches. Moonroof comes only in upper trims which makes the cabin airier and less claustrophobic. Among rivals, the Ford Escape offers the widest and spacious cabin while the Honda CR-V comes a close second. However, the 2022 CR-V offers the most cargo space among the rivals, thereby making it the most practical for small families.

2022 Honda CR-V Exterior

While the 2022 CR-V isn't the flashiest or classiest in this hotly contested segment, it's still one of the most satisfying and talented entrants - Car and Driver

The exterior of the 2022 Honda CR-V will remain unchanged. However, a facelifted model has been spotted with minor changes, which include new slimmer LED headlamps, longer wheelbase, new grille with a honeycomb design, new machine cut alloy wheels, and a new front bumper with new fog lamps housing as well.

The 2023 CR-V gets updated on the rear also. It gets new horizontal tail lamps with all LED elements, which look fabulous. The rear spoiler also seems to be new with a stop lamp integrated.

The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox looks better than the Honda CR-V. Apart from this, the CR-V has better fuel economy and a better interior. The Honda CR-V produces more power with the potent engine and its transmission is also better than the Equinox.

Both the cars are expected to score well in the crash tests and have all the necessary safety features. The Equinox being pocket-friendly has an advantage here.

2022 Honda CR-V vs. 2022 Nissan Rogue

The 2022 Honda CR-V has a more attractive design language than the 2022 Nissan Rogue. The Rogue has only one engine option whereas the CR-V has two engine options. The CR-V has better fuel economy and a powerful engine too.

That being said, with better engine and fuel economy, it has a cheaper price tag than Rogue and is hence our recommendation.

2022 Honda CR-V Final Verdict

The Honda CR-V has been dominating the compact SUV segment for ages now. Even though there will be no changes this time, the 2022 CR-V is certainly a viable option in this segment. But having said that, we would suggest you wait for the 2023 CR-V model, as it is rumored to get a new hybrid engine that will produce more power and torque than the previous generation, and this engine will return better fuel economy too. It will get new slimmer LED headlamps, a new bigger grille, and new LED horizontal tail lamps. The 2023 Honda CR-V is rumored to have changes on the interior too. According to the spy shots, it also gets a longer wheelbase, a flatter front end, and new machine-cut alloy wheels. So keep your fingers crossed, and do set your eyes on this one.
