2021 Honda CR-V review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Honda CR-V?

The five-seat CR-V is Honda’s entry in the compact SUV class. It comes with front- or all-wheel drive and a choice of conventional or hybrid powertrains. Gas-only versions are powered by a 190-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Hybrid versions feature two electric motors and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that make 212 hp total.  Competitors include the Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4

What’s New on the 2021 Honda CR-V?

A new Special Edition trim level slots between the LX and EX trims this year. 

What Features in the 2021 Honda CR-V Are Most Important?

  • Standard active safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights.
  • Automatic climate control on all trim levels
  • 5-inch display screen standard; 7-inch touchscreen optional
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity optional

Should I Buy the 2021 Honda CR-V?

The CR-V is one of the more spacious choices among compact SUVs, with a well-finished interior and good fuel economy. It comes with a competitive assortment of advanced safety features, and an available fuel-sipping hybrid powertrain is a plus. But you’ll have to step up from the base LX trim to get a touchscreen multimedia system and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

This is my 2nd Honda Touring CRV

Excellent vehicle. I was driving 2018 Honda CRV Touring. Enjoyed this vehicle. Normal service, gas mileage were as promised. Comfortable driving. My wife and I shared the same opinions in owning and driving a CRV Touring, we purchased a new 2021 Honda CRV Touring.

Best car I have ever owned

The styling, handling, comfort and features of the Honda CR-V are top notch. It is the safest car I have ever owned. Mileage is averaging 30 city and 38 highway! Smooth ride, modern controls and plenty of room. Honda has risen to the top of the class in SUVs.

I'm really pleased with my CR V

The exterior is sleek and the red CR V color is an eye catcher. The interior amenities are abundant and standard on the vehicle. I couldn't ask for more !
