Specs at a Glance

Expect the 2021 Honda CR-V to remain a top-selling small crossover. Drivers love the CR-V's family-sized interior and fresh styling. In this review, we'll see how the CR-V LX compares to the CR-V Touring.


These CR-V trims come equipped with the same engaging powertrain. Resting under the hood is a 1.5-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. A continuously variable transmission also comes standard, which helps optimize fuel economy. Honda's optional Real Time AWD system is available for drivers who may decide to take a winter road trip.


Many Honda fans consider the CR-V to be one of the best-looking SUVs in the class. Sporty body lines and a sleek front fascia help the CR-V LX to stand out. Expect the Touring trim to attract even more attention on the street. Honda outfits it with upgraded 19-inch alloy wheels and dual chrome exhaust finishers. LED headlights further set apart the Touring trim.


The CR-V LX proves to be a serious bang for the buck. Some of its standard equipment includes hands-free Bluetooth, a multi-angle backup camera, and remote entry. Most importantly, Honda Sensing comes standard. This advanced safety system provides today's most popular driving aids, including automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance.

Drivers seeking a more luxurious experience will be interested in the CR-V Touring. Featuring a color touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Honda's Display Audio interface gives you quick access to your mobile apps and other smartphone functions. Meanwhile, a nine-speaker premium audio system brings a more exciting soundtrack. Other great amenities include a wireless phone charger, a hands-free tailgate, and heated leather seats.
