New 2019 Honda CRV Hybrid Model – Changes, Redesign, Release Date
At the end of 2016, Honda unveiled the fifth generation of CR-V. The launch day was surprising because Honda did not even say any single word about the vehicle before. Even though the model is still fresh, it seems that Honda is going to release another soon. Now, everyone is talking about the new 2019 Honda CRV. There will be some improvements around the exterior and interior. We glad that Honda has more attention on the engine.
There will be no drastic change that Honda is going to offer for the new 2019 Honda CRV. What they do is to give a little improvement because the current model is still fresh. Therefore, it is not going too far from the current model. Perhaps, they are going to offer a brand new grille together with a new pair of headlights. It is also possible to offer the vehicle with the new LED clusters on the taillights. Even some experts suggest that Honda should redesign the vehicle so that it is a little bit closer to the Accord. When all rumors about the vehicle is rising, the fans start expecting about the presence of the hybrid model. It should be different from other models with the distinctive aerodynamic rims, different front grille, and low-rolling resistance tires.
2019 Honda CRV Interior
As of the cabin, Honda places the buttons and the gear selector close to the driver so that everything is reachable. This is important to improve the driving experience. Overall, they will keep everything is the same as before. The difference is the new 2019 Honda CRV may receive a new infotainment system.
Speaking of the performance, there will be an inline-four engine to make 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. This engine is quite impressive for the vehicle. In addition, Honda also provides a 1.5-liter turbo-four engine that is able to create 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque to give a good upgrade, especially for those who want to have output that is more powerful. Interestingly, Honda focuses on the fuel consumption. That is why the new 2019 Honda CRV has biggest change on the fuel consumption. Our reliable sources explain that it is able to make more than 10% of less fuel compared to others. The CVT gearbox is also available.
When it comes to the transmission, Honda may pair the engine with a ten-speed auto as the standard.
We expect the new 2019 Honda CRV is available at the end of 2018 or in the early of 2019. The official announcement is still not available at this time. We only could predict that the cost is not too far from the previous model. It can be more expensive, but we hope that its base model is about $31,000, not more.
