The 2022 Honda CR-V is rated among the top of our midsize SUV rankings, thanks to its innovative interior that offers ample passenger and cargo space (Total Passenger Volume — 105.9 cubic feet) along with modern interior features and technology. The midsize SUV from Honda basically checks off all the objectives, with a family-friendly back seat, comfortable cabin, and ample standard interior features, all at an affordable pricing. For 2022 MY, the Honda CR-V is carried forward with no major changes to the interior. Looking at the Honda CR-V interior pictures, the crossover was built to be the comfortable SUV from the ground up. The interior dimensions and colors are apt for a midsize crossover and even the NVH levels are refined.

The 2022 Honda CR-V offers all essential interior comfort and convenience features like heated front seats, power front seats, a dual-zone climate control system, and the easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seatback. The base CR-V LX trim has standard cloth seats, while the higher CR-V EX-L and Touring models come equipped with a leather-trimmed interior with leather-trimmed seats and a steering wheel. Depending on the trim you choose, you can configure your new 2022 CR-V in two-tone paint colors including Aegean Blue Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, and Obsidian Blue Pearl. The interior color options include gray or black coupled with either cloth or leather upholstery.

With the CR-V EX trim and above, the interior features an abundance of standard tech and comfort features for a reasonable price bump, making the base LX trim look bare bones. The EX gets three USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a variety of other smartphone integration apps, and a six-speaker sound system. The rivals for the 2022 Honda CR-V include the best-selling Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, and Hyundai Tucson. Prices for the 2022 CR-V start at just over $26,500, while the inclusion of all-wheel-drive and the hybrid powertrain will cost quite a bit more.

How is the 2022 Honda CR-V Interior?

The new 2022 Honda CR-V is a midsize SUV with an innovative interior with authentic trim and seating options, high-end technology, and remarkable cargo space. The CR-V 2022 accomodates up to five passengers and has a large trunk capacity of 39.2 cubic feet. On the 2022 Honda CR-V, some of the key technology features offered include a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and so much more. You can select from bold Honda CR-V colors and see the luxury available with the interior features.

The interior design is simple yet modern, backed up by upscale materials and build quality for this segment. From previous 2021 CR-V models, the new 2022 CR-V's interior boasts a more premium cabin experience with more standard technology. Honda has smartly incorporated storage solutions in the center console and also provides rear seat center armrest from the base LX trim onwards. Some other features like dual-zone climate control, push button start and heated front seats are offered from Special Edition trim onwards as standard.

The top-range CR-V Touring trim (see 2022 CR-V interior pictures), also features wireless charging. The latest 2022 CR-V is available on sale at an MSRP of $26,800 while the most equipped and upscale CR-V touring model costs $36,600. The crossover offers a family-friendly back seat, a massive cargo area, and strong and efficient engines (especially the CR-V Hybrid). Basically, for the vast majority of midsize SUV buyers, and especially families, it's the smartest choice.

How is the 2022 Honda CR-V Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort?

On the inside of the 2022 CR-V, the ergonomically-designed dashboard and plush seats are designed to maximize passenger space and comfort. As expected, the build quality is good enough and the overall design looks modern if we skip the small infotainment display. The interior feels airy, courtesy of its wide cabin. The 2022 CR-V can easily seat five passengers in comfort and still hold a considerable amount of luggage for short weekend trips. We believe that Honda's 'Man Maximum, Machine Minimum' philosophy is well highlighted with CR-V's comfy cabin, though some interior pictures might not do justice. 

2022 Honda CR-V Storage Spaces

As expected, higher CR-V trims including EX-L and Touring look a lot more upscale with faux-wood trims and soft-touch materials. The dashboard gets the usual Honda design, carving out a lot of space for the front passengers. The shift by wire systems gives the center console a compact design, integrating a wireless charging pad, two cup holders, and even an extra cubby hole. The compact dashboard also sits lower than usual to improve visibility. Moreover, the chunky three-spoke steering wheel feels good to hold and steering mounted controls offer enhanced convenience.

2022 Honda CR-V Seating

The front seats are wide with just the right amount of bolstering to keep passengers comfortable. The 2022 CR-V gets power-adjustable front seats with heating function as you climb the trim ladder. At the rear, three adult passengers can easily fit in. Also, separate headrests and three-point seatbelts are provided for all three passengers. The front passengers get a wide center armrest with deep storage underneath. Honda also includes automatic climate control right from the base model, with higher trims getting a more advanced dual-zone climate control system. The CR-V EX and higher trims also add a moonroof as standard. The Touring trim gets access to ambient lighting as standard.

As expected, the 2022 Honda CR-V comes second, if we consider passenger space and comfort. The new Hyundai Tucson offers better second row legroom and passenger volume as compared to the CR-V. Both the Toyota RAV4 and Mazda CX-5 trail the pack with average space in both the rows. The Mazda CX-5 on the other hand offers a more premium interior compared to the rest of the pack.The Ford Escape offers almost the same second row legroom as the Honda CR-V but misses out on equivalent comfort and refined ride experience. The Chevrolet Equinox fits in between Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson in terms of interior dimensions

How is the 2022 Honda CR-V Infotainment and Features?

The infotainment system continues to be the single biggest shortcoming of the CR-V, at least when compared to the competition. While the menus are easy to comprehend, the interface is one of the slowest around, taking much longer to navigate. The LX get a smaller 5-inch touchscreen display that covers the basics including a radio, while the 7-inch touchscreen display unit in the Special Edition and above trims adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Some features like SiriusXM satellite radio and HD Radio are offered from EX trim onwards. 

2022 Honda CR-V Infotainment System

For your music needs, you get a 4-speaker stereo as standard but that gets upgraded to a 6-speaker stereo in the Special Ediiton and EX or an 8-speaker stereo in the EX-L trim. A more powerful 330-watt and refined 9-speaker premium audio system is standard on the Touring trim. After popular demand, Honda included a volume knob for easy access. However, the absence of an AUX port limits versatility. Moreover, built-in satellite-linked navigation system is offered in the Touring trim only. 

The CR-V's weakest element is the lack of physical menu buttons in the higher models and an occasionally non-intuitive menu structure.  Honda offers newer interface in the Accord and Civic, overcoming the problem to some extent. Some of the CR-V's rivals including Hyundai TucsonFord Escape, and Toyota RAV4, offer comparable features with more user-friendly interfaces. A fluidic user interface is always appreciated and Chevrolet Equinox's Infotainment 3 System is a prime example of it. 

Some of the key Infotainment Features are: 

  • The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration
  • SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Optional built-in navigation
  • 9-speaker audio system
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • HondaLink

What are the 2022 Honda CR-V Interior Features?

Starting with the base LX model, features like automatic climate control, 6-way manually adjustable driver seat, 4-way manually adjustable front passenger seat, cloth upholstery, and 60/40-split folding rear seats are included as standard. Next up, the Special Edition adds heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote engine start, and keyless entry with push-button start. 

2022 Honda CR-V Interior Features

The mid-level EX trim also adds tinted rear windows, a power sunroof, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Shelling out more for the EX-L adds luxuries like leather upholstery, a power liftgate, and a power-adjustable front passenger seat. Finally, the Touring model tops the list with a heated steering wheel, hands-free power liftgate, and several other upgrades.

2022 Honda CR-V Interior Colors and Materials

Depending on your choice of exterior paint option, the base LX comes with a cabin in Black or Gray with standard Gray cloth upholstery. The EX comes with cloth upholstery but wood trim replaces the aluminum-look inserts. The Special Edition gets Black cloth upholstery as standard. Both the EX-L and Touring have leather-trimmed seats in Black or Gray color. The higher trims also offer leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob for added elegance. 

How good is the 2022 Honda CR-V cargo capacity?

The wide opening trunk on the 2022 CR-V provides ample access to haul even larger items. As standard, you get 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. The flat loading floor makes it easy to load luggage and the rear seats fold flat in a 60/40 split configuration to maximize space up to 75.8 cubic feet.

The Hyundai Tucson beats the Honda CR-V in terms of practicality, offering more cargo space with the second row seats down. The Toyota RAV4 also offers similar cargo space as compared to Ford Escape and Hyundai Tucson with the seats up. However, the Mazda CX-5 with its sleeker design loses out on practicality against the competition, offering the least cargo capacity with all seats up and second row seats folded down. It is followed by Chevrolet Equinox

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

As usual with a Honda, the 2022 CR-V gets a practical interior filled with numerous cubby spaces. Wherever you sit, there is a conveniently placed cup holder and storage area near you. The glove box is also very spacious with easy access. The center console with no traditional gear lever also houses a separate storage bin. The center console storage under the armrest is also extra deep.

Is the 2022 Honda CR-V Interior good enough?

Even though a sixth-generation 2023 Honda CR-V is right around the corner, the fifith-generation 2022 Honda CR-V is still recommended for its exceptional use of interior space and practicality. Honda has managed to hit the perfect balance between practicality, comfort, and ample standard features for the price tag. Even if the infotainment system can’t match segment rivals, the rest of the interior features make up for it. Opting for the current generation model will also help you avoid all the niggles and issues that can arise in the all-new model. Overall, in terms of interior space, interior features, and cabin comfort, the 2022 Honda CR-V is a solid choice in the midsize crossover SUV segment.
