Is the Honda CR-V AWD?

Two 2020 Honda CR-Vs crossing paths

If you’re like many Gastonia drivers, you’re probably wondering, “Is the Honda CR-V offered with AWD? Like many Honda vehicles, the Honda CR-V comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. You’ll get all of the comfort and efficiency of the new Honda CR-V, backed by even more traction and power on rough roads around Kings Mountain. Read on to learn more about the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ and the CR-V models that offer it! 

What is the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™? 

Many OEMs have specialized all-wheel drive systems. Honda utilizes Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, which installs a rear differential to vehicles with FWD. This makes it easy to upgrade the CR-V FWD to CR-V AWD. How does this system work, exactly? It’s fairly simple.  

  • The rear differential engages via a multi-plate clutch system when the CR-V loses traction on rugged terrain. 
  • At this point, torque is delivered to all four wheels — not just two. 
  • “Intelligent Control” reduces the lag many all-wheel drive systems experience when the rear wheels are utilized. 
  • To transfer power, the Intelligent Control System relies on an electric motor mounted on the transmission, instead of a mechanical system. 

What Are the Honda CR-V AWD Models? 

All Honda CR-V trim levels are available with all-wheel drive. Whether you choose the Honda CR-V EX AWD or the Honda CR-V EX-L AWD, you can expect the following features as standard equipment: 

  • Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™
  • 190-hp 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine 
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
  • Active Noise Cancellation™
  • 18-inch wheels 
  • Moonroof 
  • Blind Spot Monitoring System with Cross Traffic Monitor
