2019 Honda CR-V Trim Levels
A reliable midsize SUV is a great way to get your family around Panama City, Springfield, and Callaway. They offer safety, ample storage space, and convenient driving features.
Choosing the right midsize SUV for your family is a big decision. Honda of Bay County hopes to help you during your car-buying journey. To help you decide which one is right for you and your family, we put together this review of the 2019 Honda CR-V trim levels.
Honda CR-V LX
The 2019 Honda CR-V LX is the base trim. It runs on a 2.4L i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine with direct injection and gets up to 184 horsepower. This engine works alongside a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that makes the SUV more efficient. Together, the CVT and Eco Assist™ System help the CR-V LX achieve an EPA-estimated 26 MPG city and 32 MPG highway.1
Inside the Honda CR-V LX, you'll find a safe cabin for your family with six standard airbags. There's also plenty of space for storage with the easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seats.
Up front, you'll have clear control with the infotainment center and illuminated steering-wheel-mounted controls. Staying connected while piloting your car will be easy with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and streaming audio options, including Pandora®.
You'll also have a window to what's around you. The Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines lets you see what's behind you and what path you're on while backing up.
Honda CR-V EX
Moving up, the next trim is the 2019 Honda CR-V EX. This trim offers upgrades in power and features.
It has a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with direction injection. The turbocharged ability of this engine lets it get up to 190 horsepower.
This more powerful Honda CR-V trim also comes standard with a safety and driver-assistance bundle, Honda Sensing®. This safety suite includes the following features for added awareness during your drives:
- Blind Spot Monitoring System with Cross Traffic Monitor
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
Alerts from this system come through on a larger 7-inch touchscreen. This screen also showcases more entertainment options in the CR-V EX. Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and SiriusXM® Radio are all standard.
While you're controlling the entertainment, you can also control your comfort level. The driver's seat is a 12-way power-adjustable seat with lumbar support. The front seats are heated, too, but it also comes with the dual-zone automatic climate control system. In addition to giving your passengers the climate that they want, you can also give them a nice view with the one-touch power moonroof with a tilt feature.
Honda CR-V EX-L
The 2019 Honda CR-V EX-L looks to bring a little more luxury to the EX trim. It offers many of the same features but has a more refined interior. Leather seats are standard on the EX-L as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
The passenger’s seat now has a 4-way power adjustment, and the driver’s seat comes with a 2-way memory. The latter feature will let the CR-V EX-L automatically readjust the seat to your preset liking if you had someone else in the family drive your car.
There's also easier access for storage. A power tailgate with a programmable height function makes loading more convenient.
Honda CR-V Touring
The final trim is the 2019 Honda CR-V Touring. The Touring takes the convenience and style upgrades outdoors to the exterior. A hands-free access power tailgate and standard roof rails make packing for a road trip even easier.
Beneath the tailgate, you'll find dual chrome exhaust finishers to give the design a look that lives up to the Touring name. On the front end, there's standard rain-sensing windshield wipers, so you'll always have great visibility during storms.
On top of what it adds to the exterior, the EX-L also offers more connectivity inside the vehicle with the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™. It has voice recognition, Honda HD Digital Traffic, and HD Radio™.
