The Honda CR-V's Complete History, From Compact SUV O.G. to Today (2023)

| News

It started the car-based crossover formula alongside the RAV4. And the CR-V isn't done yet.

Alexander StoklosaWriterAlex LeanseWriter

The Honda CR-V is so common today, its numbers so thick on the ground in most places, that you've probably never stopped to consider what the compact crossover's name means—or that it means anything at all. As a standout member of a mostly drab segment, the Honda's name could just be the same old alphanumeric mumbo-jumbo applied to any number of modern vehicles. But did you know that it actually means "Comfortable Runabout Vehicle"? The funky name reflects the newness of what the CR-V represented back in the mid-1990s: there literally wasn't a term for what it was, so Honda made one up.

Among the first of a new kind of in-between vehicles (not quite a car, but not quite an SUV), the Honda, and others like it, would sometimes be called "soft-roaders" before eventually going by the "crossover" name. Whatever you call them, the CR-V was on the vanguard of a rapidly proliferating number of tall, car-based, wagon-like vehicles that Americans just can't get enough of. The original Honda CR-V's blend of an endearingly SUV-like shape—right down to its little externally mounted spare tire bolted to the tailgate—carlike handling, and fuel economy helped establish the crossover formula (alongside the truly first-into-the-fray Toyota RAV4, which was introduced a few years earlier). As with many things over the ensuing 25 years, a lot has changed about the CR-V. As the all-new sixth-generation model debuts, here's a look back at the CR-V's highlights:

The Honda CR-V's Complete History, From Compact SUV O.G. to Today (2)

1997–2001 Honda CR-V | 1st Generation

Honda first debuted the CR-V back in 1995, but the brand wouldn't send it to the U.S. until the 1997 model year. It is heavily based on the contemporary Civic, and the crossover sports a fully independent suspension and a flat interior floor. Honda's stylists gave the CR-V a mini-SUV appearance, with an up-kicked front bumper that resembles a skid plate and a cute externally mounted spare tire hung on the swing-out tailgate. Weirdly, at least for the American market, the CR-V's tailgate swings open to the right—toward the curb. As such, when owners need to walk around the open tailgate to reach the sidewalk. At least the tailgate glass opens separately, swinging up and out of the way for quick deposits of groceries or bags.

1997–2001 Honda CR-V | 1st Generation

At first, only a single trim level was offered—the CR-V LX—but shortly after its first year on sale, the EX joined the lineup. The higher-end trim adds aluminum wheels and anti-lock brakes to the model. Every CR-V comes with a picnic table (no, really), that deploys from the cargo floor. The rear seats also fold flat, and there is plenty of bin space throughout the interior.

1997–2001 Honda CR-V | 1st Generation

Other cute details include a column shifter for the automatic transmission, a flimsy folding console between the two front seats, and taillights integrated into the rearmost roof pillars, leaving unadorned sheet metal between the bumper and the rear glass. For reasons unclear, Honda stuffed the majority of the CR-V's secondary controls into a panel to the left of the steering wheel, including the door mirror controls, window switches for all four windows, and gauge-pod dimmer switch.

1997–2001 Honda CR-V | 1st Generation

While not a car, neither is the CR-V an SUV in the traditional sense. Front-wheel-drive is standard, and even Honda's optional "Real Time" all-wheel-drive favors the front axle. When slippage is detected at the front wheels, the setup shifts engine torque to the rear axle—although not quite in the "Real Time" Honda branding suggested, but close. With 8.1 inches of ground clearance, the CR-V is certainly better suited to off-roading than a Civic, but its lack of low-range gearing or a lockable center diff meant it prefers the pavement to the unbeaten path.

1997–2001 Honda CR-V | 1st Generation

Light as the CR-V is, it doesn't need a great big engine to slog it around. Honda fit every CR-V with the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; initially, the motor produced a so-so 126 hp and came only with a four-speed automatic transmission. In 1999, however, that output was bumped up to 146 horses, and buyers could choose between a five-speed manual transmission or the four-speed auto. Acceleration with either transmission is leisurely compared to today's CR-V and its ilk, but competitive at the time. Fuel economy was similarly impressive then, if not now; the original CR-V posted low-20-mpg efficiency.

2002–2004 Honda CR-V | 2nd Generation

For the CR-V's second generation, Honda gives it a more substantial appearance and a larger, 160-hp 2.4-liter engine shared with the Accord. In keeping with contemporary Honda design, the CR-V wears pointed, cat-ear-like headlights and relatively spare detailing; in other words, it's a decent-looking little thing.

2002–2004 Honda CR-V | 2nd Generation

Once again, front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available, as is a manual transmission. Honda keeps the original CR-V's vertical taillights and externally mounted spare tire, both of which help give the crossover a more SUV-ish appearance. Two trim levels are offered at launch: The upmarket EX, which gets a standard sunroof, anti-lock brakes, and aluminum wheels, as well as the base LX (pictured here), which wears steel wheels and gets less equipment.

2002–2004 Honda CR-V | 2nd Generation

Capitalizing on the '02 CR-V's bigger body and roomier interior, Honda gifts its SUV multi-way folding rear seats. These can be folded forward, creating a tallish shelf on which goods can be stored, or flipped vertically up against the front seatbacks for an uninterrupted load floor extending to the tailgate.

2002–2004 Honda CR-V | 2nd Generation

The picnic table from the first-generation CR-V model returns, and once again stows in the cargo hold, where it doubles as the cargo floor. Once again, the CR-V's tailgate inexplicably opens toward the curb on U.S.-market versions, a curious reminder of the Honda's Japanese roots (where the right-hinged door makes more sense).

The Honda CR-V's Complete History, From Compact SUV O.G. to Today (11)

2002–2004 Honda CR-V | 2nd Generation

The 2002 Honda CR-V's cabin is vastly more modern than the original's, with a double-DIN radio unit that's more integrated with the dashboard, an available six-disc CD changer(!), and nicer materials. A shelf built into the dashboard's midsection stretches nearly the entire width of the interior and adds to the already copious stash space inside. A flip-down center console opens up even more space between the front seats, which each feature their own flip-down center armrests.

As mentioned already, a five-speed manual transmission is on the menu; the available four-speed automatic is once again shifted via a broken-chicken-wing shift lever jutting from the dash next to the steering wheel. Honda cleverly integrates the handbrake into the dash, too, where it mimics the grab handle on the passenger side of the center stack.

2005–2006 Honda CR-V | 2nd Generation

Honda gifts the second-generation CR-V a notable mid-cycle refresh for 2005, giving the headlights a quad-lamp setup and, at least on up-level EX versions, painting more of the bumpers body color. New wheel designs (both in steel and aluminum) round out the exterior updates.

The extended body-color treatment can be seen on the rear bumper, especially, as well as on the spare tire cover (which previously was vinyl). Practicality still reigns, and the rear glass still opens independently from the tailgate.

Fewer changes hit the CR-V's interior for 2005, though leather becomes available on a special "SE" trim (pictured here). Also visible in this image is the odd automatic shift lever that pokes out from the upper dashboard.

2007–2011 Honda CR-V | 3rd Generation

The third-generation CR-V starts the model's push in a new direction. By the mid-naughts, SUVs no longer needed to signal their intentions to the world with externally mounted spare tires, butch bumpers, and the like. Not that the Honda ever qualified as "butch," but by 2007, the world had begun accepting (and feverishly buying) car-based crossovers that wore more honest, tall-hatchback styling. Enter the 2007 CR-V.

2007–2011 Honda CR-V | 3rd Generation

Embracing its car roots like no CR-V before, the 2007 model stuffs its spare tire under the cargo floor, receives painted bumpers on every trim, and even sports a swoopy side glass profile. The rounded styling in general stands in stark contrast to the first two CR-Vs' boxier look. And, yes, before you ask, the original models' cute picnic table goes away.

2007–2011 Honda CR-V | 3rd Generation

Other early CR-V curiosities such as the shifter location and side-hinged tailgate also meet their demises; the 2007's tailgate is hinged at the top, and the shifter lives in a normal center-console-ish zone at the base of the dashboard. Ditto the vertical handbrake disguised as a grab handle; it's replaced by a normal foot-operated parking brake. Underhood, things remain familiar, with the 2.4-liter I-4 engine putting out slightly more power—166 hp—but paired exclusively with a five-speed automatic transmission; the stick-shift is dead.

2012–2014 Honda CR-V | 4th Generation

Despite its similar overall appearance to the 2007 CR-V, the 2012 version is all-new. Though its styling grows somewhat less distinctive, there are meaningful updates throughout, including significant weight reduction, minor updates to the 2.4-liter I-4 for greater power and efficiency, and longer gearing for the final-drive to help quiet that engine down.

2012–2014 Honda CR-V | 4th Generation

The CR-V's reduced weigh helps extend the relatively minor engine updates' impact. Every 2012 CR-V is powered by the same carryover 2.4-liter I-4 engine, this time producing 185 hp and 163 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission remains the lone choice, and front- and all-wheel drive are available.

2012–2014 Honda CR-V | 4th Generation

As is common with this generation of Hondas, the CR-V gets a fussy-looking display setup with dual screens and lots of small, fiddly buttons. The basics are easy to use, namely the climate controls, but up-lever versions in particular have both a touchscreen with Honda's early navigation system and a second display buried in a nacelle high up on the dash. It's a bit much, though the cabin's materials and overall look move upscale.

2015–2016 Honda CR-V | 4th Generation

The fourth-generation CR-V's mid-cycle refresh for 2015 proves wildly successful, not that much needed changing. A sharper nose with LED accent lighting around the headlights and snappier wheel designs give the Honda a sharper, more cohesive appearance.

2015–2016 Honda CR-V | 4th Generation

Honda overdid it on this update, largely thanks to having been chastened by a bungled new Civic rollout in the years prior. The fourth-gen CR-V didn't suffer so bad a launch, but it did arrive just before modern small-overlap frontal crash testing was introduced—and so Honda felt a significant update was necessary to bring the CR-V up to safety snuff. While it was under the hood, though, Honda did more than just beef up the front crash structure. In fact, the changes were enough to earn the 2015 CR-V our SUV of the Year award, a rare accolade for a not-entirely new vehicle.

2015–2016 Honda CR-V | 4th Generation

The cabin still makes do with the odd dual screen setup, but the materials and some of the tech is seriously improved. More critically, beneath the surface, the CR-V is leagues better than before, with more attention paid to its dynamics—a sore spot on the '12 model. Honda trades the CR-V's engine for a new "Earth Dreams" direct-injected 2.4-liter I-4 and ditches the five-speed automatic for its new continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The combo improves the SUV's tractability and responsiveness, while upping fuel efficiency. Power holds at 185 hp, but peaks lower in the rev range, while torque rises to 181 lb-ft.

2017–2022 Honda CR-V | 5th Generation

The cabin takes after the contemporary Civic's, with a mature and cleaner design than before. Honda again takes stash space and cubby design very seriously, loading the compact SUV with bins 'n things and making it a useful tool for families on the go. For the first time, the CR-V offers advanced safety gear such as lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control.

Honda swaps the CR-V's 2.4-liter Accord engine for ... another Accord engine. This time, it's the 190-hp, 179-lb-ft turbo 1.5-liter I-4 shared with nicer Civics and the Accord, again paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front- or all-wheel drive. (Okay, base CR-Vs at launch include the carryover 2.4-liter, but this engine soon gives way to a lineup-wide adoption of the fresher turbo.) In addition to greater power, the turbo engine brings much-improved fuel economy.

Coinciding with a refresh for 2020, Honda gifts the CR-V a new powertrain option: A hybrid. A first for the CR-V family, the Hybrid model uses the same dual-motor gas-electric hybrid setup as the Accord Hybrid, meaning it has a starter/generator along with a large primary electric drive motor that does most of the CR-V's motivating. A 2.0-liter gas engine can be clutched in at higher speeds to a single-gear transmission and work in concert with the EV motor to power the CR-V along.

For 2023, Honda rolls out the sixth-generation CR-V. Like earlier generations, it's based on architecture shared with the Civic, and even though a tailgate-mounted spare is (still) nowhere to be found, its styling returns to a more rugged aesthetic like the original. However, certain familiar cues, like the hexagonal grille and L-shaped taillights, return—freshly adapted for this generation.

That also helps CR-V Hybrid get an official tow rating for the first time: 1,000 pounds. To back up its adventurous image, the 2023 CR-V gains a snow driving mode and hill descent control as standard.
