The CR-V continues to be a big seller for Honda in this hot category that’s the largest in the U.S. market, but the competition has gotten tougher, including for 2019 a redesigned Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester as well as a refreshed Hyundai Tucson. The CR-V also gained a larger two-row SUV sibling for 2019, the Honda Passport.
The CR-V’s strength continues to be that it is one of the most family-friendly compact SUVs with an adult-roomy rear seat, a big cargo area (with or without the rear seatbacks folded), lots of interior storage spaces (including a big center console bin) and wide-opening rear doors. An extensive package of safety technology also is standard on all but the base model, including a front collision system with automatic braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control.
