2022 Honda CR-V Touring evaluation | Automotive Critiques
Auto123 critiques the 2022 Honda CR-V Touring.
Japanese automaker Honda is readying to introduce the brand new, sixth-generation CR-V, however earlier than that and all of the hoopla surrounding that occasion occurs, we determined we’d give the present version once-over, particularly because it’s the one nonetheless at sellers (when there’s stock) and the as soon as that continues to cleared the path for Honda when it comes to gross sales. This CR-V first debuted in 2016 as a 2017 mannequin, so it’s a confirmed commodity, one trusted by massive numbers of Canadian motorists.
To wit, regardless of its superior age, the Honda CR-V continues to be among the many top-selling SUVs in Canada. The mannequin’s status is one issue conserving customers coming to Honda sellers, however there are additionally different elements that come into play, equivalent to driving pleasure and cargo and passenger area. We’re speaking a couple of utility car in any case, in any case.

Nameless, for good and dangerous
We don’t understand how a lot the mannequin’s designers would possibly agree, however in our view the present CR-V is fairly darn nameless when out in visitors, simply considered one of many different crossovers and firm SUVs of comparable disposition on the market. Since its debut it has acquired the odd modest redesign alongside the way in which, however nothing main. Honda doesn’t do main, typically. Particularly when a mannequin’s gross sales are so gangbuster.
That mentioned, Honda didn’t completely deprive its compact SUV of distinguishing options. The car’s bumper is not probably the most strong in look, however the grille, delimited by a central chrome strip, integrates the LED mild clusters fairly properly. A second silver stripe on the bumper follows the identical design. On the edges, one other chrome strip on the base of the doorways (unique to this Touring livery) provides a contact of magnificence to a car general very simplistic in its method.
The CR-V’s rear finish nonetheless options the place lights that stretch on both aspect of the rear window with the license plate positioned decrease on the tailgate. Standing tall on its 19-inch wheels, the CR-V Touring is clearly not probably the most expressive car in its class, however maybe that is a part of its success: a car that goes all over the place with out making drawing consideration.
What concerning the inside?
Whereas the CR-V does not supply a design as elegant because the Mazda CX-5 or as expressive as the 2 Korean compact SUVs it competes towards (Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage), what concerning the inside?
As a rule, the standard of Honda’s interiors is noteworthy and the CR-V is not any exception. True, the CR-V’s dashboard is a little more old fashioned than the Civic’s very linear one. Past the faux woodwork, Honda is banking on the central touchscreen to attach the car to the consumer. The automaker is not making an attempt to introduce a middle-ground answer just like the controversial touchpad seen in Acuras. However, the display screen’s response is just not its best power, whereas these shortcut buttons are arduous to succeed in when the car is in movement. What’s extra, the model of the infotainment system is just not the model’s most up-to-date.
For the remaining, the standard buttons are properly positioned on the slanted console. There’s additionally loads of storage within the center for each occupants; the bin behind the cup holders, most notably, is deep sufficient to carry a handbag or perhaps a good pill.
