2018 Honda CR-V Trim Levels
So, you’ve decided to bring the versatility, efficiency, and elegance of the 2018 Honda CR-V to your daily drive. It’s an excellent compact crossover SUV, fresh off a full redesign from the previous model year and with the latest technology and safety features to match.

At Boardwalk Honda, we’ve written the perfect trim level review to help you figure that out. If you want to learn even more, contact us or stop in for a visit!
The Base CR-V Trim: LX
The strong foundation of the 2018 CR-V lineup is the LX trim. It runs on a 2.4L i-VTEC® I-4 engine paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), a combination that delivers up to 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. For all your around-town driving, this engine will more than satisfy.
On the exterior, you’ll find a set of snazzy LED daytime running lights, which bring some extra style and function to the ride. Inside, the Honda infotainment system offers a 5-inch display screen and Bluetooth® for convenient hands-free calling and music streaming on the go
Moving Up: The EX Trim.
The Honda CR-V EX trim makes some significant additions, including a new engine: the 1.5L turbocharged I-4. It provides up to 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. That may not appear too different from the base engine on paper, but the turbocharging gives this engine much more pep on the highway.
You’ll also get a more interactive infotainment system, complete with a 7-inch touchscreen and Android Auto™/Apple CarPlay™ integrations. Using select smartphone apps during your drive has never been so easy. The EX also adds a one-touch power moonroof, a great way to let the outdoors in.
More Features in the EX-L
Choose the CR-V EX-L trim, and you’ll get many additional comfort and convenience features to make your drive more enjoyable. You can luxuriate in a leather-contoured interior (your choice of black or ivory) with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and rich, attractive wood inlays on the doors and dash.
Inside, the automatic-dimming rearview mirror means you won’t be blinded by headlights when you need to see what’s happening behind you. Plus, the heated, body-colored power side mirrors look sleek and let you melt snow and ice without having to brave frigid temperatures outside.
The Top-Tier Touring Trim
That’s a lot of T’s-and the 2018 CR-V Touring brings a lot of features to the mix. Chief among them is the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, a nice infotainment addition with voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions to your destination, which is also available as an option on the EX-L.
On the exterior, LED headlights will last longer and run more efficiently-and they look sporty, too. Roof rails extend the utility of this crossover, and rain-sensing windshield wipers automatically start and adjust to match the level of precipitation. Add in the standard hands-free power liftgate, and you have a CR-V exterior with all the frills!
