When it comes to midsize crossovers, you certainly can’t go wrong with the Honda CR-V. It ranks among the top crossovers in the midsize class and its quality is beyond reproach.
What if, however, you’re stuck between the purchase of a 2019 and a 2018 version of the CR-V? Which way do you go? Lucky for you, we’ve put together a quick comparison of the two models.
A Tale of Two Similar CR-Vs
Not to spoil the ending, but there aren’t a whole lot of differences between the 2018 and 2019 model CR-Vs. The 2017 model year featured a complete redesign of the crossover, so the following model years were light on changes.
One Trim Less
One of the most significant changes between the 2018 and 2019 CR-V models is the removal of one trim level. The 2019 version of the CR-V dropped the EX-L with navigation trim from the lineup. So, if you want that trim specifically – you have to go with the 2018 version.
A Different Kind of White
Another minor change between the 2019 and 2018 versions of the CR-V are paint colors. For 2019, Honda dropped the White Diamond Pearl color and replaced it with Platinum White Pearl. That still keeps the available paint colors at ten for both model years of the CR-V.
The dropping of a trim level with the 2019 version of the CR-V has more to do with the addition of tech than anything. For 2019, there are four trims available: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The good news here is that with the arrival of the 2019 CR-V, you get a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capability starting on the EX trim and above.
