In 2018, the Honda CR-V did not get too many new changes due to its comprehensive design overhaul in 2017. This year’s CR-V is powered by a turbocharged engine that offers exceptional power and pickup. The CR-V also has a spacious interior with thoughtful storage compartments and generous room for both passengers and cargo. The CR-V has plenty of technology and comfortable seating arrangements that give it a stylish and contemporary appearance while adding to its level of convenience. Agile and athletic handling is a highlight of the CR-V, which can take corners and dirt trails equally with ease. The 2019 CR-V is a leader in the area of safety, and it has many options for a custom finish. The CR-V competes with the Nissan Rogue, which is another midsize SUV. Compared to the CR-V, the Rogue is less powerful and comfortable. It also doesn’t score as high as the CR-V for safety.
The 2018 Honda CR-V excels in the area of performance, especially when outfitted with its turbo engine. The base trim of the CR-V is equipped with a four-cylinder engine that has a 2356 cc displacement. This engine creates 184 HP at 6,400 RPM and 180 LB-FT of torque at 3,900 RPM. The three successive trim levels get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine instead. This engine has a displacement of 1498 cc. Its maximum power capacity is 190 HP at 5,600 RPM, and its peak torque output is 179 LB-FT at a range of 2,000 – 5,000 RPM. Both engines are paired with an automatic transmission. They both have 16 valves as well and run on standard gasoline. The Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5L engine with four cylinders. This engine generates a maximum of 170 HP at 6,000 RPM. It is matched to an automatic transmission and runs on regular gasoline.
The CR-V has always been an attractive SUV, but the design change in 2017 made it even better. Riding on its new look for that model year, the 2018 CR-V does not get too many style revisions. The 2018 CR-V’s appearance is created through several standout amenities including power-operated side mirrors, a fin-style roof antenna, and an active shutter grille. Halogen headlights that turn on and off automatically, remote entry, intermittent wipers, a roofline spoiler, and either body-colored or black door handles also accentuate the CR-V’s exterior. The Nissan Rogue has a comparatively more everyday exterior than the Honda CR-V, which includes fewer add-on amenities and stylish detail elements.
From connectivity to entertainment, you’ll find several standards or available features in the CR-V’s cabin to keep you happy and plugged in. The CR-V comes with automatic climate control, power locking doors, cargo area lighting, and a push-button start. The CR-V also has a leather-wrapped wheel and an automatically dimming rearview mirror. The upper trims get leather seats and a driver’s seat that moves in four ways. Heated front seats are standard on all but the base model. The CR-V gets a standard five-inch LCD screen with Bluetooth. A larger seven-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is standard on the higher trims. Multiple USB ports are standard on the higher trims, while you progress in audio system quality moving up the line, too.
