2022 Honda CR-V Review
Serving Gastonia, NC, Charlotte, and Rock Hill
The 2022 Honda CR-V stands out as a mid-size SUV with a sculpted exterior that can move you forward on the highway or trail. LEDs highlight the headlamps, fog lights, and tail lights. When your hands are full, you can still load up the rear by kicking your foot under the rear bumper. The Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate opens. Another kick closes the gate. You can also program the height to accommodate low garage ceilings or make the handle easier to reach. This go-getter is available in five trims starting with the LX, which includes roof rails, dual exhaust finishers, and 17-inch alloy wheels. At the top of the line is the Touring, which moves forward on 19-inch alloy wheels and comes with Real-Time All-Wheel Drive.

You have a choice of two engines for the 2022 Honda CR-V. The 1.5L turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder generates up to 190 hp and 179 lb.-ft. of torque while depending on an assist from the Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode. The 2.0L Dual Overhead Cam Atkinson-cycle engine with Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control produces up to 181 hp and 232 lb.-ft. of torque using the Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) with Sport Mode and Deceleration Selectors. Providing the charge is an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. You can choose from three drive modes such as Econ for maximum fuel efficiency, Sport for better performance, and EV that runs exclusively on electric power.
Interior and Technology
Inside the 2022 Honda CR-V, you can revel in the luxury of available leather on the upholstery, steering wheel, and shift knob. Your driver’s position power-adjusts up to 12 ways including four for power-adjustable lumbar support. The front passenger gets four power adjustments. With Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control, you and your front passenger can define your own temperatures that automatically compensate for any changes in the weather outside. Both the front seat and the steering wheel are available with built-in heating to keep you warm on the coldest days. You can drop down the 60/40-split rear seatbacks to increase cargo room from 33.2 to 68.7 cubic feet.
Keeping you connected is the 7-inch Display Audio with a high-resolution electrostatic touchscreen. It integrates your compatible smartphone using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, so you can make phone calls or send and receive text messages while you’re still driving. The available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System gets you to your destination quickly and can recognize voice commands. You’ll enjoy your music even more from the 330-watt Premium Audio System with nine speakers that include a subwoofer. When you need to power up your compatible device, you don’t have to worry about cables and plugs. Just lay it on the Wireless Phone Charger.
The 2022 Honda CR-V protects you and your passengers with several driver assists such as the Lane Keeping Assist System. This adjusts your steering to ensure that your vehicle is always centered in the current lane. Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow keeps a safe gap between you and the next vehicle by automatically adjusting your speed, depending on traffic conditions. Forward Collision Warning tells you if you’re about to hit the vehicle in front and the Collision Mitigation Braking System applies brake pressure to minimize or prevent an accident. When you change lanes, the Blind Spot Information System lets you know of vehicles that have entered your blind zone.
