Overview

How Much Does a 2021 Honda CR-V Cost?

The 2021 CR-V comes in a single, 5-passenger configuration and is offered with four trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The standard gasoline models are FWD, with AWD optional. The LX ($25,350, plus destination charge) comes with 17-in alloy wheels, LED running/accent lights, automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver seat, cloth upholstery, a 60/40 split-folding and reclining back seat (with remote "easy fold" pulls in the cargo area), a backup camera, Bluetooth, one USB port and a 4-speaker sound system. Also included is the Honda Sensing package of accident avoidance tech, which consists of lane-departure-warning and forward-collision-warning systems, plus automatic emergency braking, lane-departure prevention, and adaptive cruise control with traffic-friendly, slow-speed follow capabilities. The EX ($27,860) is the trim most people end up with, which isn’t surprising given its uptick in equipment. It adds blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic assist, plus 18-in wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights, proximity entry and push-button start, remote ignition, rear privacy glass, a sunroof, a cargo cover, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-way power driver seat, heated front seats, three extra USB ports (one front, two rear), a 7-in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 6-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The EX-L ($30,000) adds a power liftgate, leather upholstery, driver memory settings, a 4-way power passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, HD radio, and an 8-speaker sound system. The Touring ($30,450) steps things up with roof rails, 19-in wheels, LED headlights, wireless charging, a heated steering wheel, a hands-free power liftgate, 9-speaker premium audio, dual chrome exhaust finishers, rain-sensing windshield wipers, ambient lighting and a navigation system.

Honda CR-V Safety

Is the 2021 Honda CR-V a Safe Car?

The 2021 Honda CR-V includes the usual allotment of safety equipment: antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front airbags, front-side airbags and side curtain airbags that cover both rows. There are also LATCH anchors in all three rear positions. Just as or even more importantly, every trim comes with a system that can help prevent an accident in the first place. It is called Honda Sensing, and it includes forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, road-departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control. Every trim but the base LX model also comes with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic assist. The government gave the 2020 CR-V perfect 5-star ratings for overall, frontal and side crash protection. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the CR-V a Top Safety Pick for its top scores in all relevant crash and crash-prevention categories.

Competition

2021 Honda CR-V vs the competition

2021 Toyota RAV4 The CR-V’s longtime nemesis, the Toyota RAV4 was completely redesigned for 2019. 2020 Subaru Forester The Forester also boasts great cargo space and has a more adventurous nature thanks to its sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, 8.7 inches of ground clearance and off-road modes. It includes a bundle of safety features and has a slightly lower starting price than the CR-V. 2020 Hyundai Santa FeThe 5-passenger Santa Fe is slightly bigger than the CR-V and boasts a tech-forward interior, great cargo space and an unbeatable powertrain warranty of 10 years/100,000 miles. 2020 Mazda CX-5 – Mazda’s contender has less cargo room than the CR-V but some of the most athletic manners in this class. The optional turbo engine makes it even better. Used Honda Pilot If the CR-V still doesn’t have the family-friendly utility you need, a bigger SUV is probably in order. As the CR-V’s bigger brother, the Pilot has three rows, seating for up to eight, and all of Honda’s great manners.
