New 2019 Honda CRV Hybrid Release Date
The CR-V is quite popular in Honda’s lineup. Its position is on the second rank with the great sales since 2009. It is a compact crossover that the company had a slight decline in 2008, but they could cover it quickly. The car started the first debut in 1985. The fifth generation started the debut at 2016 Detroit Auto Show. For the newest generation, the 2019 Honda CRV goes with the same platform as the Civic. The platform is from more than 50% of high-strength steel.
The previous model came out with a heavy redesign. They provided wider, longer and muscular fenders. It was available with confident handling and great ground clearance. Some speculations go to the new 2019 Honda CRV. Many of us expect that it is sportier than the previous model. The design of the car should be more aggressive than before. To do this, the company can offer a new large grille and redesigned front bumper. The car has some shared features with Acura, Civic, and Accord. The headlights are identical to Acura’s while the chassis is from Civic.
There are no drastic changes available when it comes to the cabin of the 2019 Honda CRV. We hope that the company uses the same cabin as the predecessor. They only need to give technology updates.
There are two different engines available for the 2019 Honda CRV. The first is the turbocharged 1.5-liter and four-cylinder with the direct injection system. The second is 2.4 liter. The engines can make the same 185 hp but it completes different trim levels. The first engine is for the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims. The second engine is for the LX trim. Likely, the company can provide a plug-in hybrid with the combination of 2.0-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. At this time, the engines are still unknown for the horsepower, torque and towing capacity. There is no confirmation from Honda about the car. Therefore, we think the best way to do is to wait for the official announcement.
Speaking of the transmission, it is possible to use a six-speed manual or the CVT transmission. The company provides the same driving modes. It means all trim levels have four-wheel drive layout while the top model comes with all-wheel drive option.
At this time, there is no exact information available for the details of the release date for the 2019 Honda CRV. We need to wait for the official announcement so we can tell you the right information. The base price is for the LX that starts from $25,000. The top model has not more than $33,000. The car will be the direct rivals for some great crossovers such as Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Tucson, Chevrolet Equinox, Subaru Forester, and Mazda CX-5.
