2019 Honda CR-V Specs

The 2019 Honda CR-V offers drivers an unrivaled versatility on the road. Well-rounded inside and out, the CR-V continues to be a favorite among drivers for its dynamic power, all-wheel drive capability, spacious cabin for cargo, and a turbocharged engine option that delivers more horsepower. Read on to learn more about the performance specs of the CR-V including:

  • Standard and Turbocharged engine
  • Fuel Economy
  • Performance-Enhancing Features

Engine Under the Hood

At the heart of the Honda CR-V are two dynamic engines—each offering drivers a reliable performance on the road. The standard CR-V is powered by a 2.4 L 4-cylinder engine that is agile in the acceleration and even in its delivery. As drivers explore the upper trim levels, the CR-V upgrades to a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which offers even more horsepower and, as Edmunds.com says, the turbocharged engine “delivers a rare combination of thrift and zest.”

  • 2.4 L 4-Cylinder Engine
  • 1.5 L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder

Fuel Economy

Not only does the CR-V come with two engine choices but it also gives drivers the choice between standard front wheel drive and an all-wheel drive system. The fuel economy estimates will vary depending on which engine and drivetrain combination you choose, but thanks to its engineering and to the CVT transmission, every model of the HR-V will achieve impressive fuel efficiency.


  • 2019 Honda Civic LX CVT 2WD – 26 city / 32 highway / 28 combined mpg*
  • 2019 Honda Civic EX CVT 2WD – 28 city / 34 highway / 30 combined mpg*


  • 2019 Honda Civic LX CVT AWD – 25 city / 31 highway / 27 combined mpg*
  • 2019 Honda Civic EX CVT AWD – 27 city / 33 highway / 29 combined mpg*

Active Safety Features

The CR-V includes a list of active safety features which play a role in its reliable performance on the road, despite road or weather conditions. These features help the HR-V maintain good tractive control even on slippery surfaces and prevent the brakes from locking up which can cause dangerous skidding.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • LED Daytime Running Lights

Towing Capacity

For drivers who need the capability of towing, the CR-V can tow up to 1,500 lbs. For lightweight trailers, jet skis, and other items that weigh less than 1,500 lbs., the CR-V is ready to transport what you need.

  • 1,500 lbs.


Working in tandem with both engines is a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode. The CVT ensures that the gears shift automatically and smoothly, giving drivers more torque when they need it and greater efficiency at all speeds.

Horsepower and Torque

Depending on which engine is right for you, the CR-V will produce a slightly different power output. With the entry-level CR-V LX, drivers will have the standard engine which produces up to 184 hp. For more power on the road, choose one of the higher trim levels, starting with the CR-V EX, which sees up to 190 hp with the turbocharged engine under the hood.

  • 2019 Honda CR-V LX – 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque
  • 2019 Honda CR-V EX – 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque
