Honda launched the fifth generation CR-V at the end of 2016. This was a surprise to most of us, especially since Honda did not contain much information in advance. Although the model is fairly new, it seems that Honda will release a new update soon. So far, the details are still rare, but it seems that the 2019 Honda CR-V is the update everyone is talking about. This can lead to minor changes to the outside and inside, but you get more attention under the hood.
It will be available in four versions: LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. With this update, the CR-V received the Active Shutter Grid system for the first time. For added comfort, advanced features include noise, vibration, and roughness. The Base LX model uses 17-inch wheels and 18-inch alloy wheels. There are ten 2019 Honda CR-V exterior colors, of which 5 are pearls and 5 are metallic colors. These are: Basque red pearl, black crystal pearl, molten lava pelage, blue obsidian pearl, white diamond pearl, dark metallic olive, metallic bronze, metallic silver moon, modern metallic steel and metallic sandstorm.
The front seats are adjustable with the power option and with three heating levels. Behind the wheel, we see the color screen of the 7-inch TFT driver information surface, which displays the analogue tachometer, digital tachometer and other optional information of the 2019 Honda CR-V. In the center console, the default base model screen is 5 inches with Pandora, USB port, and Bluetooth connectivity for the Hands Free Link feature. The highest ornaments are equipped with a 7-inch touch screen audio display with Android operating system. This audio system includes HondaLink content, AM / FM content, Bluetooth connectivity, and compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay platforms.
This four-cylinder series produces 184 hp and 180 Nm of torque, which is quite impressive for their size. Optionally, Honda also offers a 1.5-liter turbo. With 190 hp and 179 Nm of torque it is a good upgrade of the larger engine. The biggest improvement is fuel economy. Once equipped, the car consumes up to 10% less fuel than usual. Both were previously available with a CVT transmission. It seems that things can change. Although the new 2019 Honda CR-V is unofficial, it could have a 10-speed automatic transmission in series, which would certainly enhance the driving experience. In addition, the car receives a hybrid. Honda has just confirmed that this hybrid will use a 2.0-liter Atkinson engine with two electric motors. The performance is expected to be around 210 hp and with fuel consumption of over 40 MPG on average, the best-selling crossover in its class.
Since the new 2019 Honda CR-V will not undergo any significant changes, we do not expect any cost changes. The LX based FWD model is expected to start at $ 24,000, while EX will start at nearly $ 3,000 more. EX-L and Touring cost less than $ 30,000 and $ 33,000, respectively. If you choose four-wheel drive, you will need to pay an additional $ 1,300, regardless of the model you choose. We expect the 2019 Honda CR-V to be launched in the summer of 2018.
