If you’re shopping in the compact crossover market and you don’t live under a rock, there’s not much of a chance you haven’t heard about the Honda CR-V. The middle child of Honda’s SUV lineup, the CR-V is bookended by the subcompact HR-V and the midsize, three-row Pilot. But middle-child status is just about the only thing about the CR-V that’s not exceptional.
This crossover is wildly popular, and for good reason—it hits all its marks among drivers shopping for a compact SUV, with an impressive lineup of standard features and available equipment, more-than-adequate power, near-unbeatable cargo and passenger space, and advanced safety systems to keep all five occupants well protected on the road.
This year’s lineup of CR-V models includes four trims, and all are packed with desirable standard features. Here are just a few of the highlights:
Glancing over this list, it’s easy to see why we say you can’t go wrong with any one of these CR-V models.

Space is not an issue inside the 2018 Honda CR-V! That’s as true for passengers as it is for cargo. Rear-seat occupants even get legroom that’s among the best in its class, and the folding rear seats enable versatility to accommodate a variety of cargo-versus-passenger needs. Comfortable and well-equipped, the CR-V’s interior makes it a fine road companion on long journeys and short errands alike. A user-friendly infotainment center and available Apple CarPlay / Android Auto integration and Pandora compatibility will keep everyone happily occupied until you reach your destination.
The CR-V’s distinctive design elevates it above the many other compact crossover vehicles on the road. With Honda’s signature stylishness, the exterior blends modern lines and an aggressive sportiness that makes the CR-V a true head turner.
This year, drivers can choose among 10 vivid exterior paint options on the CR-V:
The four trims of the 2018 Honda CR-V lineup all come with a standard continuously variable transmission.

EX, EX-L, and Touring trims receive a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder with 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque.
