Honda CR-V LX Trim Level

2021 Honda CR-V LX trim level

The base-level trim of the Honda CR-V is called the LX, and it comes equipped with all the standard features you love. Under its hood, it sports a 190-horsepower 1.5L turbocharged engine. It also comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. This suite includes:

  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™

Inside the cabin, you’ll have a 160-watt audio system and a 5-inch color LCD infotainment screen in the center stack. The infotainment system is compatible with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Bluetooth® streaming audio. You’ll also have Pandora® compatibility standard with the Honda CR-V, so you can discover new music and create custom radio stations to listen to during your commute.

The Honda CR-V LX trim also features an automatic climate control system that lets you set the temperature you want for the ride, and the system will automatically keep it as warm or cool as you’d like. You can also move your seat forward or back—and even angle it just the way you like—using the 6-way manual adjustment.

EX Trim Level of the Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V EX trim levelNext, we have the EX trim that upgrades all your technology features. To start, it replaces your infotainment center with a 7-inch touch-screen display with customizable feature settings. It works with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, allowing you to access your favorite smartphone apps through your Honda SUV.With the standard SMS text message function, you can have important messages read to you as you drive, enabling you to stay informed while keeping your eyes on the road.

As for safety tech, the EX adds the blind spot information system with cross traffic monitor. These two features help mitigate potential collisions by watching your side and rear blind spots and alerting you to other vehicles you may not see.

Providing even more comfort during frigid winters, this trim level adds heated front seats. You’ll also get a 12-way power driver’s seat that makes it easier to find the most comfortable position for driving.

The automatic climate control system in the EX trim level also comes with a dual-zone automatic climate control system. This means you can set your side to one temperature, while your front-seat passenger can keep their side at a different temperature. Also featured in this trim level is a push-button start that lets you get the engine started without needing to take the keys out of your pocket.

You can even remotely start the engine, too, and get the cabin warmed up or cooled down before you head out for the day.

The EX trim also comes with features like:

  • Retractable cargo area cover
  • Heated front seats

EX-L Trim Level

Stepping up to the EX-L trim level equips your Honda CR-V with a whole new sense of luxury. We say this because it replaces the standard cloth seats with leather-trimmed ones. The steering wheel and shift knob come wrapped in leather, too.

Plus, if you like to flood the cabin of your SUV with fresh air and natural light, then you’ll love that this trim level of the CR-V comes standard with a moonroof that does just that. Meanwhile, the 180-watt audio system means you’ll be able to hear your tunes clearly, even with the windows open.

More convenience features come standard on the EX-L as well, like the power tailgate. This feature allows you to open your SUV’s hatch simply by pressing a button on your key fob instead of doing it manually. Your co-pilot also gets to enjoy more personal comfort in the EX-L trim, as it comes with a 4-way power adjustment for their seat.

The EX-L trim also includes features such as:

  • 180-watt audio system with eight speakers
  • Automatic dimming rearview mirror
  • HomeLink® remote system
  • Four-way adjustable front passenger seating

Honda CR-V Touring

Finally, we have the Touring trim level of the Honda CR-V. This is the configuration with all the bells and whistles. It features everything from the previous three trims, plus even more convenience features, like the hands-free access power tailgate. This feature automatically opens your CR-V’s tailgate simply with a wave of your foot under the rear bumper. That means you won’t have to put down whatever you’re holding to open the hatch or dig around for your key fob.Then, inside the cabin, you’ve got upgraded connectivity features, like:

  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition
  • 330-watt premium audio system with 9 speakers, including subwoofer
  • Wireless phone charger

This navigation system also features Honda HD Digital Traffic that keeps you informed of the state of traffic ahead. If there are any delays, you can quickly find an alternate route to get where you need to go on time.

Auto-on/off LED headlights are another advantage of this trim level. You won’t forget to turn on your headlights at twilight anymore because they’ll toggle themselves on and off based on the amount of light detected by the sensors.

While there’s also up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo volume inside all Honda CR-V trim levels, the Touring trim level gives you more capabilities when carrying larger gear. The roof rails on the CR-V Touring trim let you load luggage or bikes on top of your SUV.

Honda CR-V Hybrid EX Trim

Hybrid vehicles can take your driving experience to new heights. In the Honda CR-V Hybrid EX trim, you’ll get tons of the same features you get in the EX gas trim, and then some. Available in the Hybrid EX are LED headlights with an auto on/off feature, so you’ll never have to worry about forgetting if they’re engaged or not.

The Hybrid EX also expands on the great gas mileage you get in all the CR-V gas trims. In all CR-V Hybrid models, you get an EPA-estimated 40 city and 35 highway MPG.* The engines in the Hybrid trims can also handle a little more power, as they generate 212 total system horsepower and 230 lb-ft of torque.

Other features included in the Hybrid EX trim are:

  • Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ (standard in all Hybrid trims)
  • Remote engine start
  • Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode and Deceleration Selectors

Hybrid EX-L

The Hybrid EX-L offers many of the same specs as its predecessor, but ups the ante. Like its gas counterpart, the Hybrid EX-L offers standard leather seating and a power tailgate. However, there’s a big difference in the steering wheel in the Hybrid EX-L, as not only is it leather-wrapped, but it is heated as well, a feature not available in its gas counterpart.

The Hybrid EX-L also offers ambient lighting, which is the first of two Honda CR-V trims to do so, making it easier to see all facets of your car at all times. And if you’re worried about compromising on interior space for you and your passengers, fear not! You’ll get the same dimensions in the Hybrid trims you would in the gas trims, sans cargo volume.

Front Interior Measurements:

  • Headroom: 38 inches
  • Legroom: 41.3 inches
  • Shoulder room: 57.9 inches
  • Hip room: 55.1 inches

Rear Interior Measurements:

  • Headroom: 39.1 inches
  • Legroom: 40.4 inches
  • Shoulder room: 55.6 inches
  • Hip room: 49.5 inches

Hybrid Touring Trim

The mecca of the Honda CR-V Hybrid trims, the Hybrid Touring, comes with all the bells and whistles, and then some. Ambient lighting comes standard, as does the automatic on/off capabilities of LED lights. Available in the Hybrid Touring are front and rear parking sensors, which will begin to alert you if you’re within a few feet of an object that may usurp your ability to park safely.

Just like in the gas Touring trim, roof rails come standard, and the power liftgate with programmable height can be given hands-free access, where it cannot in the EX-L gas and Hybrid trims. As is the case with the Touring gas trim, you’ll also receive the best in audio that Honda can offer, with a 330-watt, nine-speaker audio system.

Other features you’ll find in the Hybrid Touring trim are:

  • Wireless phone charger
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Driver’s seat with 2-position memory
