The Honda CR-V LX
As for the trim levels, there are a total of four models to choose from. Kicking things off, the base is called the LX. It comes with some pretty great features such as automatic climate control, a four-speaker sound system, and keyless entry. Also included at this base level is an infotainment system that is quite satisfactory. Displayed on a 5-inch LCD monitor, this system comes with Pandora radio, the video feed for the rearview camera, and Bluetooth capabilities. You can make or receive calls hands-free, and you can even send text messages without taking your eyes off the road. This makes it easy to keep in touch and remain safe at the same time.
The Honda CR-V EX
The second trim is a great option for many drivers. It comes with some high-level luxuries that you might not expect at such an affordable rate. It’s known as the EX. Featuring heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a one-touch power moonroof, and push-button start technology, you will be hard-pressed to find something you don’t love about this trim level. The infotainment interface also gets a significant upgrade with a larger 7-inch touchscreen and compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Two additional speakers have been added to the sound system for a total of six, and this vehicle also comes with HD and satellite radio. If you prefer uninterrupted music streaming during your daily drives, then this might just be the model for you. Added safety features include blindspot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Honda CR-V EX-L
Next, the EX-L gets a few extra luxuries such as leather-trimmed/power-adjustable seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an upgraded sound system with eight speakers. While that may not seem like enough upgrades for the price difference, the leather seating is quite subtle and elegant. Also, the auto-dimming rearview mirror will instantly take the glare out of your eyes when another vehicle comes up behind you with their bright lights on.
The Honda CR-V Touring
Finally, the top-tier trim level is known as the Touring. This luxurious model takes the cake. It comes equipped with a wireless charging pad to help keep the cabin clear of clutter, a heated steering wheel, and ambient cabin lighting to set a relaxing mood. It also gets an upgrade to the infotainment system with the addition of voice-activated navigation and HD traffic updates in real-time. You will never have to worry about being lost in a new city again. This handy system will make sure that you are always on the faster route to your desired destination.
