2022 Honda CR-V vs 2021 Honda CR-V

Serving Groton, CT

The CR-V is the small Honda crossover SUV that has been delighting local drivers for several decades. While its fifth generation debuted in 2017, the automaker has continued making upgrades over the years. In fact, there is one exceptional update to the CR-V’s performance capabilities compared to the 2021 version. After getting familiar with the 2021 and 2022 Honda CR-Vs, which model year and trim level will you select?


Across most of the trim levels, the 2021 Honda CR-V and the 2022 version perform comparably. The top-of-the-line trim level, however, has been fine-tuned in 2022. It specifically offers all-wheel drive as a standard feature for the first time. All five trim levels for both years have a turbo four-cylinder, 190-horsepower engine. The engine is combined with a continuously variable transmission. You can compare the capabilities of the lower trim levels to the Touring trim level when you stop by the dealership soon.


There are no significant differences in the exterior styling of the 2021 and 2022 CR-V crossovers. The model boasts a molded front end with a sporty fascia, a hexagonal grille, and wedge-style LED headlights. Thick accents run along the lower sides, and both the hood and roof are beautifully rounded. A sunroof, heated side windows, and a power liftgate are available on select trim levels for both model years.


The CR-V’s features for 2021 and 2022 are identical on a trim-by-trim basis. The entry-level trim has a four-speaker sound system, a split-folding rear seat, an auto climate control system, auto high beams, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, forward collision mitigation, and more. As you progress up the trim line, the Honda CR-V adds heated front seats, smart device integration, a 7-inch color display screen, a dual-zone auto climate control system, remote engine start, keyless entry, a sunroof, roof rails, a navigation system, a superior sound system, wireless phone charging and more.
