2019 Honda CR-V: A can't-miss small SUV option
Having debuted just two years ago, the current Honda CR-V rolled into the 2019 model year without any noteworthy updates.
Styling is still sharp with numerous character lines sprinkled throughout the bumpers, hood, fenders, and door panels.
The taillights are molded for a three-dimensional appearance, and there's a healthy assortment of trim finishes including chrome, grey, and black plastic cladding.
Add in the curvy-spoke, 18-inch wheels, and the CR-V is one of the best-looking CUVs in its class.
With the exception of the base CR-V LX model, which gets a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, the rest of the CR-V lineup is powered by a 1.5-liter turbo-four.
The turbocharged engine makes 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque, working with a continuously variable transmission.
With all-wheel-drive, the CR-V returns an EPA-estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
On the infotainment front, the CR-V gets Honda's Display Audio system that uses a fairly responsive 7-inch touchscreen with not great, but acceptable image resolution.
Touring models get onboard navigation, a nine-speaker audio setup, satellite radio and Bluetooth. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also part of the deal.
The 2019 Honda CR-V Touring starts at $34,250, not including $1,095 for destination.
