Honda's big-selling compact crossover SUV remains a difficult package to beat for 2022. The only real revision for this model year is the addition of standard all-wheel drive to the range-topping Touring trim. All-wheel drive is optional across the rest of the model lineup, with the exception of the CR-V Hybrid. It combines a 2.0-liter engine with an electric motor for promised fuel savings, yet its real-world performance isn't as impressive as that of many of its hybrid rivals. That's surprising, because in standard form, the CR-V has long been a leader when it comes to EPA-estimated fuel economy. The 1.5-liter gasoline engine that powers all but the Hybrid delivers a fine combination of performance and impressive efficiency.
The chassis delivers a nice mix of comfort and control, meaning the CR-V is among the sharpest-driving compact crossovers. It's one of the biggest, too, with loads of space inside for passengers and cargo. Trim levels start with the LX, and it offers enough that you won't feel shortchanged if you're on a tight budget. We'd stretch to the EX, though, because of the added convenience features it brings: heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, blind-spot monitoring, push-button start, keyless entry, and more. Only the dated touchscreen might let you down. And if you do frequent towing, you'll find some of the CR-V's rivals more capable. Otherwise, the CR-V remains very much at the top of our shopping list for a compact crossover SUV.

Whether you're a camping enthusiast, sports coach, or a parent who can't travel light, the CR-V offers plenty of space for your equipment. The 2022 CR-V has 39.2 cu-ft of space behind the second row. That dwarfs the cargo hold of competitors and ensures you'll never be stuck playing driveway Tetris before a road trip.
If you're a nervous driver or just someone who appreciates extra peace of mind, you'll like that all 2022 Honda CR-Vs come standard with a suite of driver-assist features. Lane keep assist, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and more come standard. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are available on the EX trim and higher.
Most of us experience at least a few days with temps below freezing each year. The 2022 Honda CR-V is ready to handle that. Most importantly, there's the available all-wheel drive, which is great for icy and slippery roads. Then, consider that all trims except the base come with heated front seats. You'll also have available remote start on all but the base trim, so you can heat up or cool down your CR-V before you even set foot out in the elements.
If you're hoping to spend less time at the gas station, the CR-V might just be your ticket. The 2022 CR-V with the standard 1.5L four-cylinder engine gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg combined fuel economy with front-wheel drive.
If you (or your passengers) want to stay connected on the road, the 2022 CR-V is up for the challenge. All but the base trim come standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity. Even the base trim comes with a five-inch display screen and USB port, while a seven-inch screen and additional USB port are standard on higher trims.
