When is the release Date for the 2019 Honda CR-V?
The newly announced 2019 Honda CR-V model has been spotted finally. The vehicle has now been seen doing runs and preparing for a mainstream release. This also marks the comeback of this car and a much desired and anticipated update for it. This is one of the Honda vehicles which has enjoyed immense success over the recent years and this new model is going to continue to ride that they have been going.
You can say that the 2019 Honda CR-V is a triple threat. It has great on board technology. Fuel economy is probably one of the best in the class. Also, it has just enough room on the interior and vast cargo spacing. These characteristics are going to grace the future model and the only thing that we are not completely thrilled to find out is the speed of the car. The Honda CR-V has historically never been the fastest model in the segment and the 2019 update is not going to be any different.
You can expect to see the newest model on sale by the end of 2018. This is still an unofficial release date but one which is probably going to become a reality.

We were able to find out that the price of the 2019 Honda CR-V vehicles is not going to changes so much. Compared to the outgoing models, the CR-V is not going to get too pricy. Much of the parts have remained similar so far and there are few changes that can affect the price in a massive way. All in all, this is an update so it is very much expected for it to be priced this way.
The starting price for the LX trims is $24,045 for 2WD and $25,345 for AWD. The EX trims cost $26,695 and $27,995. Next in line is the EX-L trim which is offered for $29,195 and $30,495.

These are the prices for the last year’s model but the new ones are not going be much higher than that.
Latest Rumors About the 2019 Honda CR-V
The new 2019 Honda CR-V also prompted some talks about e hybrid powered model. This has been in talks for ages and there has still not been a CR-V vehicle with a hybrid powertrain. We were hoping that this was going to change with the coming of the last version but there are no confirmation about it yet. For now the hybrid powertrain remains a rumor, but is a kind of rumor that could become true one day. This is an idea which will give a car with already favorable fuel economy some even better ones.
Some people are under the opinion that the CR-V already has pretty nice fuel usage. But if the technology exists why not utilize it? Unfortunately, these plans are have to wait a bit longer and it could be a few years until a hybrid model appears. But we are not losing hope as it appears that this is something that is in plans to happen. When could it be, remains to be seen.
Some Exterior Changes for the 2019 Honda CR-V
The 2019 Honda CR-V is probably going to be one of the most handsome cars in the compact segment. In fact it may be up in the running for the most beautiful car overall. The new version will inherit the good looks that the previous car has had and will probably expand on them. This includes the aggressive front end which comes with the muscular haunches that are being transferred. The rear end has evolved quite nicely and it actually shows how much attention the designers are willing to add in order to make this car possible. The 2019 version is going to retain these and use them to advance the look even further.
As for the additions that come with the 2019 update, there are some exciting ones that we shall see. Generally speaking, there is nothing significant to talk about. It is just that they are simply modernizing the appearance and making with a few nips and tucks here and there. The 2019 Honda CR-V is going to dominate the roads with its striking appearance and it will help the long-term established brand have an even better position in the market.
Are There Going to be Some New Color Choices?
Unfortunately, the 2019 Honda CR-V does not come with a color update. This sounds pretty disappointing to hear but there have been no announcements made so far. The recent news was that they do not plan to extend the color pallet nor add additional wheel choices. The models will remain the three standard color choices that it used to come with and those are going to be paired with the interior look. This has been a staple for the car and its past models so why not continue it now. It is a very good idea to do it so and couple the car with the necessary details.
Dimensions and Size of the 2019 Honda CR-V
There is not going to be any change made for the 2019 Honda CR-V in terms of size. The car is good as it is and the changes which were done a few years the last time completely stick. There are no changes made and the vehicle is happy with the look and its position in the segment. The interior spacing is plentiful but what people appreciate the most is the vast cargo space that we see here. The car is 180.6 inches long and has a wheelbase of 104.7 inches. The height tis 66.5 inches and the width is 73.0 inches. This allows for an interior spacing of 101 cu ft. Bu the cargo volume is what is important here as the CR-V can boast with an impressive 39 cu ft of storage.
Interior and Innovations for the 2019 Honda CR-V
The interior of the 2019 Honda CR-V is going to be a complete copy of the previous one. The current model actually has a pretty good interior setup. It’s greatest advantage is the spacing, but the modern interior complete with a number of cool new additions has made this model one of the most practical and good looking models on the market.
With the vehicle’s release we also got some new materials now which are going to change things around a bit. There are slight updates for both, the seats and the surrounding and will make things much more comfortable. But that is about it as the other design-wise, the interior is completely the same. It essentially transfers all the good things about this car to the 2019 version and rightfully so.
There are also some technological features that are getting updates. This is a normal set and a changes that all of the newest cars are getting. But the changes are mostly felt with the upper trim models as they are the ones that get the best part out of this. All in all, we are expecting a really good setup that can make this new car very innovating.
2019 Honda CR-V Engine Specs
The 2019 Honda CR-V is going to transfer the engine lineup of the current model. This has been the plan all along and it is because Honda turbocharged its engine some time ago ant it was the best idea that they had in ages in terms of their cars. The base models are going to use a 2.4-liter inline-four engine that is capable of making 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. Of course it comes with both front- or all-wheel drive and it is an engine that this car share with the Honda Accord model.
The higher trims, namely the EX, EX-L, and the Touring models have the option of using a turbo 1.5-liter inline-four. This expands the output to 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. The performance is great for the segment but overall it is not so strong. Either way it offers just enough boost to make the car go. Finally, we have the latest version of a CVT system that works very well for the car.
0-60 mph and Top Speed Performance
The unchanged powertrain of the 2019 Honda CR-V keeps the same performance for the car. We are going to have a top speed of 124 mph and acceleration numbers of 7.6 seconds to reach 0-60 mph. All in all, still pretty decent.
Fuel Economy and MPG Usage for the 2019 Honda CR-V
The 2019 Honda CR-V is still gong to be one of the more economical cars on the market. The segment allows this model to be a pretty low spender when it comes to fuel consumption. The numbers are the same for the updates version and they amount to 27 mpg city and 33 mpg highway for the AWD and 28 mpg city and 33 mpg highway for the FWD when using the base engine. The stronger one makes 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with the AWD and 26 mpg city and 32 mpg highway for the FWD models.
