Interested to learn if the Honda CR-V is offered with AWD? Our team at Parker Johnstone's Wilsonville Honda can help you out.

With the Honda CR-V AWD model, you can get the comfort and efficiency you need on Portland roads. Learn more about the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ and the Honda CR-V with our team in Wilsonville.

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

There are plenty of all-wheel drive systems that different OEMs have perfected. However, none compare with the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ from Honda. This installs a rear differential in vehicles with FWD making it easier to upgrade the CR-V FWD to a CR-V AWD model. So how does this system work? Let us show you:

  • 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?

So what Honda CR-V trim levels are available with all-wheel drive? The answer is all of them. If you choose the Honda CR-V EX Hybrid, CR-V EX-L Hybrid, or CR-V Touring, though, the AWD system comes standard. Here’s what you can expect when you get a CR-V model with AWD:

  • Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™
  • 190-hp 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
  • 18-inch wheels
