Choice of Models
The 2019 Honda CR-V can be found in four trims that are LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The LX trim has the most basic equipment but it has sufficient features to make the CR-V relevant in today's modern world. The LX variant brings you LED daytime lights, a multi-angle rearview camera, 17-inch alloy wheels, Eco and Sport mode, automatic climate control, keyless entry, foldable rear seats, and AWD functionality.
The EX trim CR-V has better features than the LX with Honda Sensing making, Smart Entry with Walk-Away feature, 7-inch infotainment display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 12-way adjustable power driver's seat, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control and more. The EX trim brings a lot to the table for the CR-V and at a remarkable price.
The EX-L trim adds more luxury components like leather seats, powered tailgate, power adjustable seats, automatic dimming rearview mirror, heated side mirrors, memory foam driver’s seat, 180-Watt audio system with 8 speakers, AWD and a Home Link remote system.
The fourth and final choice is the Touring variant. This variant has all the best features you could want in your favorite vehicle. Although it is expensive, its price is justified. The leather seats, hands-free access tailgate, LED automatic headlights, Honda’s satellite navigation, roof rails, 330-Watt audio system with 9 speakers, dual chrome exhausts and all-wheel drive.
The 2019 Honda CR-V comes with two engine choices. The base version of the CR-V gets the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque when paired with the CVT transmission. The second engine is available in all variants above the LX. This engine is special as it is the first turbocharged engine produced by Honda. This 1.5-liter turbocharged engine when mated to the CVT transmission makes a whopping 190 horsepower. Join all this power to the AWD system and you have a pretty agile crossover/ MPV.
The 2019 Honda CR-V is one of the safest vehicles out there. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives it a Top Safety Pick award. The other vehicle safety authority called the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not yet rated the 2019 CR-V but we believe the CR-V will pass their tests with flying colors.
To top off the physical safety features, Honda has given the CR-V the modern driver assist technology. Driver assistance is the first step towards getting fully autonomous vehicles. The consumers are being accustomed to the intervention so that when the idea is fully implemented there are no reservations of any kind. The Honda Sensing suite, as a result, brings with it adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert and automated emergency braking.
The Honda CR-V feels a bit underpowered with only the front-wheel-drive option in play. When the AWD system takes control, the vehicle feels smoother and more powerful. The stock engine which is the non-turbocharged engine works good, but it is not torque sensitive to pull heavy loads. The turbocharged engine is more powerful and can pull up to 1500 pounds of weight without breaking a sweat. The CVT transmission works well in both cases, by delivering power at the right time and in the right quantity.
If you had bought the CR-V to enjoy your free time racing other dudes you would be disappointed as the heavy weight of the vehicle does not give it the liberty to tear the road apart. You would have to look elsewhere for such capabilities. However, for the daily driver, this vehicle is perfect. It has a smooth drive, a responsive steering, and decent brakes to stop acceleration in time. Overall it is a great family vehicle.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Honda CR-V
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Honda CR-V invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Honda CR-V MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
