The 2018 Honda CR-V Utility

For drivers considering a crossover SUV, the 2018 Honda CR-V boasts a powerful and capable performance on the road. Comfortable inside and out, the CR-V also delivers legendary capability—from suspension to towing to cargo space. And with available AWD on all models, drivers can depend on a reliable performance no matter the weather or road conditions.

  • Two dynamic engine choices
  • Impressive fuel economy
  • Spacious inside for passengers and cargo


Earning a 5-star rating and title of “MVP” from Car and Driver, the CR-V delivers a powerful and dynamic performance on the road. Drivers have a choice between two engine options. The first is the standard engine under the hood of the LX model and is a 2.4L 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC Inline 4-cylinder. It will produce up to 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm. For drivers who want even more power, consider the EX, EX-L, or Touring models, which see an upgraded turbocharged 1.5L engine that will produce up to 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 to 5,000 rpm.

In addition to the two engine options, the CR-V also comes with the choice of 2WD or Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System for drivers who prefer it. The AWD option is available on every model of the CR-V and provides drivers with better handling control in inclement weather and various road conditions by ensuring the CR-V keeps good tractive control with the road and minimizes any slipping or skidding.


The transmission that works in tandem with both engine choices is a continuously variable transmission with Sport Mode. With precision and expertise, it delivers power to the wheels smoothly and efficiently.

Chassis and Suspension

New in the 2018 model is an overhauled suspension design that refines the already legendary comfortable ride the CR-V has delivered for generations. It also features a longer wheelbase and a higher ground clearance for optimal off-roading. Some notable suspension features in the CR-V are:

  • MacPherson Strut Front Suspension
  • Multi-Link Double Wishbone Rear Suspension
  • Variable Ratio Electronic Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering

Fuel Economy

The CR-V achieves incredible, class-leading fuel economy. Though the estimates will vary slightly based on which engine and drivetrain combination you select, drivers of any CR-V model will be able to drive for longer distances on the road with fewer visits to the pump.

  • 2WD with standard engine – EPA-estimated 26 city / 32 highway / 28 combined mpg*
  • 2WD with turbocharged engine – EPA-estimated 28 city / 34 highway / 30 combined mpg*
  • AWD with standard engine – EPA-estimated 25 city / 31 highway / 27 combined mpg*
  • AWD with Turbocharged engine – EPA-estimated 27 city / 33 highway / 29 combined mpg*

On the standard LX model are 17-inch alloy wheels; 18-inch alloy wheels are an upgrade on the upper trims. Every model comes with all-season tires that can take to the road in the heat of summer or the dead of winter.

Towing Capacity

The CR-V is not only powerful and dynamic on the road, but it is also capable. For drivers who need a smart crossover that can also haul, the CR-V can get the job done. Coming properly equipped, it can tow up to 1,500 pounds, suitable for most lightweight trailers.
