2022 Honda CR-V Review

  • Quick acceleration plus thrifty fuel economy
  • Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity
  • Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
  • Plenty of thoughtful storage areas
  • Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob
  • Below-average towing capability
  • All-wheel drive is now standard on the top-level Touring trim
  • Part of the fifth CR-V generation introduced for 2017

This latest-generation Honda CR-V debuted for the 2017 model year, meaning it's one of the oldest small SUVs on the market. And yet Honda has somehow come up with such a compelling overall package that the CR-V is still one of our top recommendations. Whether it's space, comfort, driver enjoyment or value, the Honda pretty much has you covered with the CR-V.

Other than the Touring trim adding standard all-wheel drive, the 2022 Honda CR-V is pretty much unchanged. That's hardly a bad thing, all things considered. The CR-V does face off against some other compelling small SUVs. The redesigned Nissan Rogue and Hyundai Tucson offer great value, for example, and the Mazda CX-5 stands out with its sleek styling and pleasing performance. Which one to get? Check out our CR-V Expert Rating below to help you decide.

What's it like to live with?

The current CR-V was hugely impressive when it made its debut, so Edmunds purchased one for our long-term test fleet. We racked up more than 40,000 miles before it left our hands, and you can read all about what it was like to own. Note that while Honda has made some updates since we tested that 2017 CR-V, most of our impressions still apply for 2022.

Rated for you by America’s best test team
The Honda CR-V is a brilliant small SUV due to its high competency across the board. It has exceptional storage space and functionality, plenty of features, a comfortable ride and enjoyable performance. And all of that comes at a competitive price for the class.
The CR-V's turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration compared to other small SUVs with base engines. In our testing, our all-wheel-drive CR-V sprinted from 0 to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds. Thrilling? No, but it's more than adequate for the day-to-day commute. We're generally not fans of continuously variable automatic transmissions because of their awkward power delivery, but the CR-V's is an exception, delivering a fairly natural response in most situations.

The CR-V's steering and handling are also standouts. You'll have confidence piloting this SUV around turns. Steering is precise and connected while body motions are nicely controlled, which is something your passengers will appreciate.
The CR-V's ride is quiet and smooth. You might notice some wind and tire noise, even the occasional engine revs when accelerating, but it's nothing out of the ordinary. The CR-V is comfortable on rougher road surfaces too. That's the case even in the Touring trim, which has the larger 19-inch wheels and shorter (less cushy) tire sidewalls.

The front seats provide good support and comfort for long drives. The rear seats are also decently comfortable and have a small amount of available recline to the seatback. As for the automatic climate control system, we've found it doesn't always maintain the precise temperature you've set, which can be annoying. However, the rear center vents will help ensure backseat passengers get a share of the airflow.
The CR-V has wide front and rear door openings that provide ample clearance on the way in. Occupants will have little difficulty entering or exiting. Once inside, the driver's seat and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel offer plenty of adjustability. The CR-V's interior dimensions are generally larger than those of rivals, and rear seating space is among the biggest you'll find in a small SUV. Four full-size adults will fit with little problem.

The main downside is the CR-V's control setup. Using the physical controls is intuitive, but some on-screen buttons are small and difficult to locate and press while driving. The digital temperature and fuel gauges flanking the speedometer can wash out in sunlight too.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard on all but the LX trim, and Bluetooth connectivity and streaming audio are equipped on every Honda CR-V. Higher trims come with more USB ports, including two in the rear. The navigation screen is clear, but some touchscreen menus are clunky. The voice controls aren't that great to use either.

You do get plenty of safety equipment. Every CR-V comes with lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning with automatic braking. Collision monitoring sometimes sends unnecessary alerts in dense traffic, but otherwise the systems are helpful.
One of the CR-V's defining traits is its massive storage space. There's 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats. You can also easily fold them down and increase capacity to 75.8 cubic feet. Small-item storage is also exceptional. The deep center console is configurable with a sliding tray that doubles as a cover for valuables.

For child transportation duty, all of the CR-V's rear seats have relatively accessible car seat anchors. The large rear passenger area means car seats fit without the need to move the front seats. Each of the outboard rear seats has a tether anchor on the rear seatback. The center seat's tether anchor is in the roof, which can slightly obstruct rear visibility.

The only shortfall in this category is the CR-V's 1,500-pound maximum towing capacity. That's enough for a really small trailer, but other small SUVs can tow upwards of 3,500 pounds.
The EPA estimates the all-wheel-drive CR-V will get 29 mpg in combined city/highway driving. Front-wheel-drive models get 30 mpg combined. While those figures make it one of the most efficient vehicles in its class, we've found that the CR-V is fairly sensitive to driving style. For reference, a previous test vehicle averaged an impressive 35.4 mpg on our 115-mile evaluation route, while another CR-V averaged about 28 mpg over longer testing.
The CR-V does not disappoint when it comes to build quality. Flowing interior panels and trim inserts fit together nicely. The same holds true for the leather on the seats and steering wheel in higher trims. Considering all trims now come with the turbocharged engine, the CR-V earns high marks for overall value in our book.

Honda delivers a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty that are typical for the segment. Roadside assistance is available for the duration of the limited warranty.
The CR-V offers little in the way of outright excitement, but it overdelivers when it comes to competency across the board. We make that trade happily with a compact SUV.

Which CR-V does Edmunds recommend?

The CR-V is pretty compelling even in its base trim, but we suggest stepping up to the midlevel EX trim for the best value. It includes some extra features such as blind-spot monitoring and Apple and Android smartphone integration without sending the price too high.

Honda CR-V models

2022 Honda CR-V video

[MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS LAGO: Hey, Carlos Lago here. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Alistair Weaver also here. CARLOS LAGO: Present. Compact SUVs provide the right mixture of fuel economy, cargo space, tech features, and ride comfort. It's why millions of families choose them to be their primary means of transportation. These vehicles often cost between 25,000 to $40,000 or thereabouts. But we find the best value is right at about 30 grand. ALISTAIR WEAVER: We've gathered together the newest, the most popular, and our favorite small SUVs in the market today. We're now going to talk through the pros and cons of each and reveal which one might just be the right choice for you. At Edmunds, we thoroughly tested all of the cars you can see here. In fact, we've tested every SUV on sale today. Some we've even owned as part of our long-term test program. CARLOS LAGO: We're going to present these five vehicles in reverse order, that's from the lowest rank to the highest rank just to make things interesting. There are a lot of vehicles in this segment though, so many we actually couldn't fit them in this video. So if you want to see the ranking on your favorite SUV be sure to visit edmunds.com/suv. ALISTAIR WEAVER: And if you are looking for a new car, be sure to check out edmunds.com/sellmycar for a cash offer on your old one. The Toyota RAV4 is an easy recommendation to those who just want simple, four-wheel transportation. It's totally competent at tackling all the needs of a small family and sells in huge numbers. It's just a bit well, average in every way. And we should know, when it was new we drove one through all 48 contiguous states nonstop in a single week, over 7,000 miles. Yes, really, I literally spent 24 hours nonstop in one of those, which was, fun. What do we like? The simple well-built and generally quiet interior. You know exactly how to use most of the controls just by looking at them and there are a lot of useful nooks and cubbies for storing stuff on long-distance drives. In a world of ever more complex touchscreen systems, we really value these simple pleasures. The interior space is generous as is the cargo volume, which is on the larger size for a compact SUV. On the downside, there's no way to lower the second-row seats from the trunk, so shorter folk will have at least one mild annoyance when loading large items. The best thing we can say about the driving experience is that there isn't anything dramatically wrong with it. Just expect slightly lower than average acceleration unless you get the seriously rapid plug-in hybrid. Otherwise, the ride balances comfort and control nicely. And the seats are generally plush and supportive. One big gripe though, the front passenger seat sits weirdly high and is non-adjustable up and down. You feel like you're sort of perched on top of the car. It's not good. While most of the RAV4 attributes are well, average, the lineup does have a couple of standouts. One is a TRD off-road variant with an upgraded all-wheel-drive system and all-terrain tires. You won't out-muscle a Jeep but it is better-equipped than most other alternatives when it comes to adventure. The other is the Prime plug-in hybrid that offers 42 miles of all-electric range, and around 5 and 1/2 seconds for 0 to 60, that makes it more efficient and quicker than the other options but at a steep entry price of roughly $40,000. As for fuel economy, most RAV4s are rated at 30 miles per gallon combined, which is better than average. The hybrid gets 40 mpg, which is the best of any hybrid version of the cars we've selected here. Overall, the RAV4 is a pleasant SUV that rides smoothly, has a roomy interior that's easy to live with, and offers plenty of utility. It stops and handles confidently, and it's generally fuel-efficient. The merely satisfactory engine and indifferent steering, however, prevent it from being a top choice for a small SUV. CARLOS LAGO: The 2022 Hyundai Tucson is the newest entrant in this segment and it's styled to make a point of it. While the design may be polarizing, the rest of the Tucson is generally agreeable. Overall, as far as price, features, and comfort go, this is an impressive SUV with one major downside. First, the good, we really like the size and shape of the interior. The Tucson is a little longer and wider than most other small SUVs, and that means its interior dimensions are slightly bigger than most in key areas. Combined with generously sized doors and windows, and you have a vehicle that's as easy to access and easy to see out of as you might hope. The same goes for the cargo area as well. From behind the wheel, we really like the seat comfort and digital displays on this top trim level version. So what's the downside? Well, a small one is that those screens have touch-sensitive controls instead of buttons, and the center console isn't as clever as some leaders with regard to storage options. You could get used to those things but our bigger frustration is the tepid, no glacial-like acceleration from the standard 2 and 1/2 liter engine. As equipped, this is one of the slowest vehicles in the class, and that means merging with traffic can just be dicey. The fuel economy makes this even more of a head-scratcher because you'd figure if an engine wasn't powerful, it better be fuel-efficient. This one though is less than mid-pack, with 26 mpg combined with all-wheel drive, and that's why we recommend getting the hybrid version. It not only makes more power, it's among the smoothest of the competition. Its fuel economy is a significant improvement over the standard engine as well. If we were only comparing hybrids here that Tucson would likely be our top recommendation. Also, you should know there will be a plug-in hybrid version with 32 miles of all-electric range in the future. For the time being, the Hyundai Tucson is an impressive crossover for the money. It's got a comfortable ride and helpful technology features that aid the ownership experience. We also like its upscale feeling materials, its class-leading warranty, and an abundance of cargo space compared with rivals. Unfortunately, it's dogged by a sluggish engine that has trouble keeping pace when the traffic speeds up. It's a nice SUV but it's slow. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Like the Tucson, the Nissan Rogue underwent a big update recently that really enhanced its appeal. It now has some pretty bold styling, especially at the front, and underneath is a highly competent SUV with lots of features, comfortable seats, a large and functional interior, and modern tech. The Rogue is just a comfortable SUV to sit in, the seats feel like one of those memory foam mattresses that really molds to your body. They're terrific. There's also an available three-zone climate control system, which is unique in this segment, and ensures that those in the rear don't feel like poor relations. The doors are large, which makes for big openings. Those in the rear actually open 90-degrees for easier loading. The cargo area is clever too, we really like the divide-and-hide cargo partitioning system. As you start climbing in price, the Rogue gets really impressive tech and interior materials. From a large and clear center touchscreen and digital instrument cluster to diamond-quilted leather seats, not just quilted, diamond-quilted. You really feel like you're getting your money's worth. The Rogue's shortcoming is its driving experience, which like the RAV4, is simply average. It takes its time building up speed on freeway on-ramps and passing on two-lane roads takes some planning. The engine doesn't sound so good either, and the steering is a bit vague. If you don't care about the nuances of driving fun, this doesn't really apply. But it's still worth calling out. As for fuel economy, the Rogue is above average, with a 30 miles per gallon combined rating for front-wheel-drive models. Add all-wheel drive and the rating falls to 28 mpg. A forthcoming turbo-charged three-cylinder engine, yes three, has a slightly higher rating of around 32 or 33 mpg but we don't yet know when that will be available. The Nissan Rogue makes a lot of sense for many shoppers, and this latest version marks a huge step forward from its lackluster predecessor. Its interior is easy to use and sensibly sized, and we like a lot of the tech features that are available. While it's not as nice to drive as some of its highest-rated rivals, the Rogue is easily among the best small SUVs on the market. CARLOS LAGO: To be blunt, when you look at the Mazda CX-5, through the lens of practicality it's not a great compact SUV but when you get behind the wheel, you just don't care. This is the SUV to get if you just enjoy driving. It's far and away the most fun of the group and by such a significant margin that it could be in its own category. But as we learned during a year-long test with a long-term test car, the CX-5 makes some sacrifices to get that experience. The biggest is the cargo area, which is the smallest of the group and by a pretty good margin. Also, interior storage options aren't as plentiful or as smart as others here. The other negative is technology, the screen looks nice but the exterior cameras don't. You still get Android and Apple device integration but there's no wireless charging. The other thing you'd have to get used to is that that center screen is not a touch screen, you use a dial and button to control it, which takes some getting used to. But some on our staff actually prefer it after learning how to use it. And then there's the matter of pricing but this really isn't a negative, simply, the Mazda CX-5 is best at its most expensive. The base models are still fun to drive from a handling perspective but you really want to upgrade to the version with the bigger 250 horsepower turbo engine. Not only will the acceleration make you smile, the interior quality will make the CX-5 feel like a luxury SUV. The design and materials just look better than anything else here and you honestly feel better sitting inside of it because of it. With great acceleration comes not-so-great fuel economy. The upgraded engine is rated at 25 mpg combined, subtract 1 for all-wheel drive, and that's worst of the group. The base engine is just beneath average at 28 mpg combined for front drive. In summary, the CX-5 offers a high-quality interior, sharp handling, and good acceleration. It comes up short in terms of cargo capacity and fuel economy. So practicality certainly isn't the strength. Why do we rank it so high? Well, we believe that the driving experience warrants it. If you want more of an appliance, skip the CX-5 by all means. But if you actually want to enjoy your time from behind the wheel, the Mazda CX-5 remains one of the best small SUVs around. ALISTAIR WEAVER: In our opinion, the Honda CR-V has been the best choice for most shoppers looking for a small SUV since this generation debuted back in 2017. Today, it's still a favorite of ours but a bit like me, it is showing its age in a few areas. We own the gas-powered CR-V as part of our long-term test fleet. And we've recently acquired a hybrid version. We put close to 50,000 miles on the gas car, which emphasized its strengths but also highlighted some of its weaknesses. First, the interior is exceptionally roomy and has tons of storage space and clever solutions for cargo big and small. The large door openings and low step-in height make for easy access like when you're loading kids or an uncooperative dog. And the seats are comfortable and easy to adjust, though it's far from quick, acceleration is mid-pack in our testing. The CR-V makes for a nice commuter thanks to better-than-average steering and handling and a great ride quality. What are the downsides? Most of them have to do with technology, which makes sense because this generation of the CR-V is one of the oldest vehicles here. Like all the other SUVs we've gathered today, the CR-V's touchscreen supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as long as you plug your phone in. And we really do recommend using one of those systems because the regular setup isn't as modern as the competition. It was also super-glitchy in our long-term test car. Also, some of the interior materials now don't look and feel as high-quality as the others here, even in this fully-loaded model. The CR-V has a fuel economy rating of 29 to 30 miles per gallon combined, depending on whether you choose all or front-wheel drive. We averaged a bit less than that with our test car over 50,000 miles. To be honest, that's not unusual for us-- we do live in LA. The optional hybrid version has a 38 miles per gallon rating, which is a touch less than the rival RAV4 Hybrid. In summary, the Honda CR-V appeals with this high level of competency across the board. It has exceptional storage space and functionality, plenty of features, a comfortable ride, and enjoyable performance. And all of that comes at a competitive price for the class. Impressive. So the CR-V wins again but this time only by a head. CARLOS LAGO: Yeah, and if you look at the scores from our rankings, you see that there's only a tenth or a couple tenths separating all these vehicles and that indicates just how competitive this segment is. ALISTAIR WEAVER: And as we explained, you can pretty much make a case for any of the vehicles that you see here. And the competition's only going to get more intense, Kia has a new Sportage on the way, and there'll be an all-new version at the CR-V, so the best might get even better. CARLOS LAGO: Keep up-to-date with the latest news and rankings by visiting edmunds.com/suv. And hey, if you made it this far into the video let us know in the comments, we want to hear from you. Also, click like and subscribe and give your grandparents a call too, they probably want to hear from you. ALISTAIR WEAVER: And be nice to your mom. CARLOS LAGO: Yeah.

2021 Mazda CX-5

Honda CR-V vs. Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 has long been one of Edmunds' favorite SUVs. It's genuinely engaging to drive, which makes it a standout in a sea of relatively staid crossovers. The Mazda's interior looks and feels a bit more premium than the CR-V's, but it's not quite as spacious, functional or comfortable. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Mazda CX-5.

Honda CR-V vs. Nissan Rogue

The Rogue was fully redesigned in 2021, improving on its frankly mediocre predecessor in every way. It's comfortable and offers lots of standard features for the price. The driver aids are impressive too. While we like the Nissan's interior quite a bit, the Honda does still offer a bit more cargo space.

Compare Honda CR-V & Nissan Rogue features 

Honda CR-V vs. Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson has been completely redesigned for 2022. For the most part, the changes have been positive. We like the Tucson's smooth ride, comfortable and spacious interior, and impressive list of standard tech and safety features. It just feels sluggish compared to the CR-V, and we found some of the Tucson's touch controls cumbersome and distracting to use.

2022 Honda CR-V First Impressions

What is the CR-V?

Even in the hypercompetitive compact SUV segment, the Honda CR-V makes leading the pack look easy. It offers spacious seating for five as well as a multitude of well-thought-out storage options. It also delivers a comfortable ride and confident handling, and it's just easy to drive. After a light restyling in 2020, we can't see Honda making any significant changes to its class-leading CR-V for 2022. We do have our fingers crossed that Honda will upgrade its somewhat finicky infotainment system.

As well rounded as the CR-V is, there are plenty of other solid choices in the segment. The Mazda CX-5 offers upscale styling, while the adventuresome Subaru Forester brings some off-road prowess. Meanwhile, the totally redesigned Nissan Rogue comes packed with standard features.

Should I lease or buy a 2022 Honda CR-V?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
