By Ryan Everson | September 17th, 2018

You already know the 2018 Honda CR-V is a surprisingly roomy compact crossover with a dynamic driving experience. That’s why you’re checking it out. But which trim level is right for you? This crossover boasts four trim levels, which all have available all-wheel drive so you can get the control you want.

Check out what each 2019 CR-V’s trim level comes with and choose the one that suits you best.

2018 Honda CR-V LX

This entry-level trim starts you out right with a 2.4-liter inline-four engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque through a continuously variable transmission. The LED daytime running lights makes oncoming traffic aware of your presence while the multi-angle rearview camera provides great rearward visibility.

The 2019 CR-V LX provides flexible seating with its 40/60 split-folding second row. You can seat up to three passengers in the rear or fold the seats flat for up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Keep all your passengers comfortable with automatic climate control.

The 2018 Honda CR-V LX starts at $24,250.

2018 Honda CR-V EX

The EX trim is the entry point into a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. While it’s only a 6-horsepower difference on paper, this boosted engine feels peppier. The seamless continuously variable transmission helps you get optimal performance on every drive.

This trim also adds standard Honda Sensing, giving you the protection of road-departure mitigation system, lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow.

Warm up or cool down the interior before you hop in with the remote starter. You can activate the dual-zone automatic climate control for customized comfort for you and your front passenger. And the 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat will keep you alert and comfortable for your entire journey.

Bring extra air into the cabin with the power-tilt sunroof or beat back the chill in winter with the heated front seats. The 7-inch touchscreen comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can access music and your favorite navigation apps easily.

The 2018 Honda CR-V EX starts from $27,050.

2018 Honda CR-V EX-L

Have a seat in a luxurious leather-trimmed interior with power lumbar support and an automatic-dimming rearview mirror. Activate the power tailgate with the push of a button and load up the cargo area with all your gear for a weekend away. And pump the tunes on your journey with a 180-watt eight-speaker audio system.

Get better visibility with the body-colored heated side-view mirrors with integrated turn signals. With the two driver’s seat memory profiles, the seat readjusts to your settings at the push of a button.

The 2018 Honda CR-V EX-L starts at $29,550.

2018 Honda CR-V Touring

From front to back, the Touring is a premium experience. In the rear, you don’t have to set down your cargo to open the hatch, just wave your foot under the bumper to activate the hands-free power liftgate. In the front, the LED headlights automatically turn on and off.

This trim also builds practical convenience in for the driver. Maintain visibility in wet conditions with standard rain-sensing wipers that activate automatically. Arrive on time with the standard Honda satellite-linked navigation system with HD digital traffic and 3D renderings of nearby terrain and buildings.

The 2018 Honda CR-V Touring starts from $32,750.
