New Honda 2019 Honda CR-V for Sale in Lincoln, RI
The ever-popular Honda CR-V is back for another model year of high sales and happy drivers. For 2019, the affordable and reliable crossover has one exterior paint color change, one less trim level, and the same ample and comfortable interior space as always. It beats its rival the Toyota RAV4 in fuel economy and standard features, and it rises above other competitors in equally significant categories.
Trims and Standard Features
The four trims are the LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The base trim gets a 2.4-liter 141 horsepower four-cylinder engine, and the other three get a 190 hp 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Both engines are paired with a continuously variable transmission with Sport Mode; all-wheel drive is available on all four trims. Some highlights on the list of standard equipment are a backup camera with guidelines, auto climate control, Bluetooth capability, LED daytime running lights, and the Eco Assist system, which monitors your driving style and supplies feedback to help you develop the most fuel-efficient habits. The EX trim adds a power tilt moonroof, remote start, heated front seats, dual-zone auto climate control, automatic high beams, and a blind spot monitor.
Amenities added to the EX-L include leather seats and interior trim, driver’s seat memory, heated exterior side mirrors, a power tailgate, power front seats with two-position memory on the driver’s side, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The super-comfy Touring boasts hands-free technology on the power tailgate, roof rails, auto on/off LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, chrome-end dual exhaust, and the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation system.
All trims get vehicle stability assist with traction control, plus a multi-angle rearview camera, with guidelines on the base and dynamic guidelines on the other three trims. The three highest trims are equipped with the Honda Sensing active safety package: adaptive cruise control, auto high beams, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision mitigating braking system, and road departure mitigation.
The base audio/information/communication system comes with four speakers and a 5-inch color screen; it’s compatible with Bluetooth HandsFree, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, and Pandora. Upgrades to the system start on the EX trim, with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, SMS texting function, and an enhanced six-speaker audio system. The Touring trim gets a 330-watt premium audio system with nine speakers. Depending on the trim level, ’19 CR-Vs have one or two USB audio interface ports plus two second-row charging ports and two 12V power outlets. The vehicle information display on the base LX shows instant and average fuel economy, outside temperature, odometer, miles left in the tank, and more. This is upgraded to a Driver Information Interface on the other three trims to show those features as well as the driver attention monitor, phone activity, trip computer, navigation, and – on AWD models – torque distribution to each wheel.
