2019 Honda CR-V’s Only Update Is A New Body Color Yet Pricing Increases By $100-$200

The 2019 Honda CR-V has gone on sale across the United States on November 13 with subtle updates and a slight price increase.

Since it was redesigned for the 2017 model year, no one expected the CR-V to bring major updates for 2019. Still, Honda could have tried harder because the only modification to the CR-V lineup is the addition of a Platinum White Pearl exterior color. The new paint replaces White Diamond Pearl and completes the CR-V’s 10 color choices.

Despite the lack of updates, the 2019 CR-V’s starting MSRP adds $100 over the previous model year. The base Honda CR-V LX with two-wheel drive starts at $24,350, while the LX with all-wheel drive is priced from $25,750.

As for the EX and EX-L models, their starting prices add $200 over the 2018 model year. Pricing for the Touring grade remains unchanged. All prices exclude a $995 destination and handling fee.

As before, LX models feature the standard 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder i-VTEC engine that produces 184 hp. EX models and above get the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit with Variable Valve Timing Control that makes 190 hp. Both engines feature a standard CVT, which in the case of the turbo unit gets Honda G-Shift control logic.

The 2019 CR-V continues to offer the Honda Sensing safety suite as standard equipment on EX and higher trims. The pack includes Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning and pedestrian sensing capability, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow, and Lane Keeping Assist.

Available driver assistance features consist of Blind Spot Information, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, and Auto High-Beam headlights. Finally, the 2019 Honda CR-V also offers optional premium features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, SiriusXM, HD Radio and Pandora capabilities.

      1. The number of units built with right hand drive is a tiny fraction of the total.
      2. Honda is trying to get back at the Kingdom for getting the Americans into WW2?

    Listen, paint’s not cheap.

      Why paint it then? The materials for next gen must come with core colors infused.

        Listen, color infusion isn’t cheap.

        • Psst

          Paint makes cheap metal and plastic less subject to rusting and UV fading with a shiny coating that complements your self-image.

    How the gas in the oil problem, I presume the 2019 has that fixed?

    • Psst

      Don’t presume.

    The CR-V Offered that in 2018, what the heck do you mean finally?

  • Six_Tymes

    I laugh every time I see one… over priced with wide plastic rear light flanking its body. hideous cheap design, tricking the eye into making you believe its larger (in width) than it really is. much like how the fake giant plastic vents on the rear bumper covers of civics, fake, fake fake.

  • Lets not forget the oil dilution with the 1.5L turbo engine. Until that is fixed, CRV’s are not worth anything.

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      You realize how much of a non-issue that is, right? It only affects those with very frequent, VERY SHORT (less than 3km) drives in weather that is well below freezing.

      It has been severely overblown.

      • Psst

        Wrong. It has caused engine stalling on cars that are in mid trip during hour long daily commutes and damage to engines of taxis operated 8 hours a day.

        • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

          On about 50 cars, out of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS sold.

          Again, overblown unless you don’t understand statistics, which obviously you don’t.

  • ksegg

    Who cares, they’re all about to be made in Chinaaaaa.

  • eye.surgeon

    You forgot the new automatic oil level increase feature.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    It might not be the very best at any one thing, but it is the total package that people want. There’s a reason why it is one of the very best selling SUVs in many countries.

  • Sai Krishna

    I might go for Mazda CX 5 then. Anyone would tell me not to and why?

  • SteersUright

    This thing just oozes a sense of quality above and beyond anything in its class. Though Mazda is getting so much better as well.

  • James Agapios

    I had a 2017 turbo and it was piece a junk and was mixing oil with gas. They couldn’t figure out was was the issue. I bought the 2018 RAV4 hybrid and I am very happy now.

  • Psst

    The 2019 model doesn’t have an update to fix the EX and Touring oil contamination issue or address the other TSBs?
