The 2022 Honda CR-V will be the next generation facelift version of the popular SUV from Honda which still sells like hotcakes. The CR-V doesn’t need to be introduced, it has its own popularity and for the year 2022, the Honda CR-V brings new updates with all-new features. The Honda CR-V SUV will still continue to be a leader in the segment offering much tough competition to its rivals.

The sixth generation of this dominating SUV might have a longer wheelbase and a stretched front end. According to spy shots and rendered photographs, the 2022 model gets a new Honeycomb design grille which is massive and looks gorgeous. The bonnet is also revised as it seems flatter than the 2021 variant. For 2022 it gets all-new slimmer LED headlamps and horizontal tail lamps which look phenomenal.

According to rumors, you will get a hybrid petrol engine with an all-wheel drive for the 2022 CR-V which will be more fuel-efficient than the current model and the 1.6 L turbocharged engine would be carried forward too. It will also get a new alloy wheel design and might come with increased tire size too.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The stretched wheelbase might be there because of the hybrid motor and its battery which will pair with the engine to improve overall fuel economy. The Honda engines are known for their quick response, which might be there in the upcoming CR-V. According to the spy shots and rendered photographs, we expect the 2022 CR-V will continue to dominate the SUV market.

The 2022 Honda CR-V additional upcoming features list is not known to us but Honda plans to bring new convenience features and add on safety features. The new list of equipment available will be updated very soon once it is confirmed.

We Recommend

The 2022 Honda CR-V will be a totally new vehicle in terms of specs as it also brings new modern features to the SUV. However, the base trim will get essentially equipped with brand new features and we believe it is a valuable addition to your garage.

The price of the 2022 Honda CR-V is not revealed yet. We can expect the pricing to be in the range of $26500 to $36,700. The exact pricing will be unveiled by Honda at the time of launch.

Release Date

We can expect the new sixth-generation Honda CR-V to reach dealerships in early 2022.

2022 Honda CR-V Engine and Performance

The 2022 Honda CR-V is expected to get a new hybrid engine that will be more fuel-efficient and will produce slightly more power. This engine is rumored to be available as an option. The 2022 CR-V is also expected to carry forward with the previous gen1.5L Turbo engine which produces 190 horsepower. It is mated with CVT transmission.

The optional hybrid 2.0L engine with two electric motors is expected to produce 212 horsepower. Honda has still not unveiled the engine specification of the 2022 CR-V but it’s likely to come only with the hybrid engine. The 1.5L Turbo engine on the 2021 CR-V goes from 0 to 60 mph in 9.3 seconds. The new hybrid engine is expected to offer slightly better acceleration and amazing fuel economy.

The current 1.5L Turbo inline 4 engine returns 28 MPG city, 34 MPG highway, and a combined 30 MPG. With a 2.0L hybrid engine, it is expected to return 40 MPG city, 35 MPG highway, and a combined 38 MPG.

2022 Honda CR-V Interior

The interior of the 2022 Honda CR-V is expected to get some minor changes. The seating capacity of the Honda CR-V might get affected due to the new hybrid engine. The base variant will get a standard air conditioning system, manually adjustable seats without ventilated seats, and a heating option.

The upper trim will likely get leather upholstery with power-adjustable heated and ventilated seats with a leather-wrapped steering wheel. 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.

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. The 2022 Honda CR-V seats five people comfortably, all the passengers can sit and enjoy long journeys.
