  • Honda CR-V LX

The latest Honda CR-V earns a lot of popularity its performance, among other strong aspects. The standard inline four-cylinder engine features a turbocharger and generates up to 190-horsepower. While the turbocharger provides a more powerful acceleration, the standard engine Active Noise Cancellation™ maintains a more modest performance, even on highways outside Portland, ME. Each trim of the new Honda CR-V SUV features a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode for added fun and excitement.

Each trim of the Honda CR-V also comes available with Real Time All-Wheel-Drive. This flexible AWD system maintains optimal traction and features Intelligent Control System™. Drivers can adjust the AWD to further enhance traction in specific weather settings.

Honda CR-V Hybrid

As an upgrade for the previous year, the 2021 Honda CR-V also comes available as a hybrid. The new Honda CR-V Hybrid runs on an I4 hybrid engine, generating 143-horsepower, paired with an AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet electric motor. The two powertrain systems work in harmony to generate 212-total-horsepower and charge a standard Lithium-Ion battery.


Another point of popularity for the Honda CR-V is its spacious interior, which features ample space for cargo and five passengers. Without its available moonroof, the Honda CR-V features over 105 cubic feet of passenger volume, with 39.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. The 60/40 back seats can fold in one touch, freeing over 77 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats.


The Honda CR-V now features standard Honda Sensing® driver-assistive safety features on all its available trim levels. These intuitive safety applications monitor your surroundings as you drive through Lewiston, ME. Some of these features send you audiovisual alerts for you to take corrective actions and others can apply brakes and steering to prevent tailgating and other sources of collisions.
