2022 Honda CR-V vs 2021 Honda CR-V

Serving Mt. Juliet, TN

For drivers in the market for a smaller, value-packed SUV, it is difficult to look beyond all that the Honda CR-V offers. The impressive CR-V broke into its fifth generation in 2017, and Honda has continued to make exciting updates to it since that time. Before you finalize your selection from our inventory at Music City Honda, you may be wondering about the differences between the 2021 Honda CR-V and the latest 2022 version.


The only notable difference between the 2021 and 2022 CR-V SUVs is experienced behind the wheel. For 2022, the top-of-the-line CR-V Touring has all-wheel drive as standard equipment for the first time. For the other trims for both model years, standard front-wheel or available all-wheel drive are offered. Also, for both years, the only powertrain is a 190-horsepower, turbo four-cylinder engine. It is mated with a continuously variable transmission.


The Honda CR-V’s exterior design is unchanged between the 2021 and 2022 model years. This SUV has considerable personality with long, rolling curves through the profile, raked side windows, and a molded nose. The nose features a prominent lower-front fascia, and a hexagonal grille tops this with a black finish. The trapezoid-shaped LED headlights are connected via a chrome bar. On the hood, the exterior sides are well-defined for added personality. Exterior features include 17-inch alloy wheels or more significant, a sunroof, tinted rear windows, heated side mirrors, and more.


On a trim-by-trim basis, the features in the CR-V hold steady between the two model years. The entry-level trim gives you a four-speaker sound system, auto climate control, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and forward collision mitigation. Upper CR-V trim levels add heated front seats, remote engine start, a push-button ignition, a 7-inch display screen, a dual-zone climate control system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, leather seats, a more advanced sound system, a power liftgate, a navigation system, and a wireless charging pad.
