Does the Honda CR-V Have AWD?

2021 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V has plenty to offer for your Canonsburg drivers, including even all-wheel drive (AWD). The Honda CR-V AWD system is one of the many reasons that make it super competitive against other SUVs on the market, such as the Toyota RAV4 and MAZDA CX-5! If you are looking for a midsize SUV that provides extra traction and power even on rough paths, then the CR-V is an excellent choice. Find out more below from our team. 

Want a compact SUV with AWD instead? Consider the Honda HR-V, where you can find similar exciting features and specs all packed in a fun-sized version of the CR-V! 



Which Honda CR-V Models Have AWD?

No matter which trim level you are considering, you can find AWD across the entire lineup! 

Trims with Available All-Wheel Drive:

  • Honda CR-V LX
  • Honda CR-V Special Edition
  • Honda CR-V EX (Non-Hybrid)
  • Honda CR-V EX-L (Non-Hybrid)

Trims with Standard All-Wheel Drive:

  • Honda CR-V EX (Hybrid)
  • Honda CR-V EX-L (Hybrid)
  • Honda CR-V Touring 

As you can see, hybrid versions of the Honda CR-V EX and EX-L have standard AWD. However, if you want standard AWD without also opting for a hybrid model, then you would turn to the Touring trim! Enjoy our new vehicle specials to save, so you can upgrade to higher trims or to a hybrid version while staying within your budget near Houston.

What Does a Honda CR-V AWD Model Include? 

What can you find in an AWD model? Whether you go for a Honda CR-V EX AWD or Honda CR-V EX-L AWD, you can expect the following: 

  • Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™
  • 1.5L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder Engine 
  • 190 hp
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
  • 18-inch Wheels 

What is the Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™? 

Honda uses the Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, which installs a rear differential to vehicles with FWD. With this added rear differential, switching from FWD to AWD is smooth and quick, which is much needed in moments that count the most. Take a closer look at how the system works below: 

  • When your SUV loses traction on rugged terrain near Bethel Park, the rear differential engages through a multi-plate clutch system.
  • Then, all of your four wheels are receiving torque.
  • The Intelligent Control system minimizes the lag many all-wheel-drive systems experience when the rear wheels are being used. 
  • Instead of a mechanical system, the Intelligent Control System relies on an electric motor mounted on the transmission to transfer power.
