The 2019 Honda CR-V can tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped. This includes a trailer hitch with power tailgate hands-free access adapter, to help make towing easier than ever.

So, what does this towing capacity mean for you? It means you can hitch all kinds of equipment to the back of your SUV, such as:

  • An ATV: For riding along the Texas Flat Off-Road trail.
  • A small camper: For a family trip to Camp Salmen Nature Park.
  • A small fishing boat: For catching some live ones near Rigolets Marina.

Furthermore, the CR-V offers features to help make traveling with a trailer easier than ever. This includes a Blind Spot Information System. Sensors in the rear bumper can indicate when a vehicle is approaching your trailer. So, if you go to change lanes, you’ll receive visual and audible alerts. When the alerts go away, you’ll know that the coast is clear.

Honda CR-V Cargo

Not only can the Honda CR-V tow a great deal, but it can also carry lots of items inside.

When it comes to cargo room, you have 39.2 cubic feet when all seats are upright. If you wish to load up a few larger items, like luggage, just fold down one side of the 60/40 split rear seats. You can pack up said belongings while still leaving room for a backseat passenger.

On the other hand, you may be riding solo or with one other person and need maximum cargo room. In that case, you can fold down the entire back row and have 75.8 cubic feet to work with.

Of course, you might want to load up items that are too big for the back of the SUV, yet too small to tow. For those belongings, you could always look into getting a Honda accessory. With options like a bike attachment, kayak attachment, and roof box, you can strap items to the top of the CR-V where they’ll stay nice and secure at all times.

Honda CR-V Power

Honda CR-V Performance

Whether you’re towing or hauling equipment, it helps to have a vehicle capable enough to perform these tasks. With the 2019 CR-V, you’ll have more than enough power to make it happen.

The SUV comes standard with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. For more muscle on the road, there’s the available 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder. This engine churns out 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, to easily handle just about any driving situation.

The CR-V is also highly capable when the road gets a bit rough. If you’re traveling in harsher elements, the available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ has your back. By automatically distributing torque before wheel slip can occur, you can remain in control on even the slickest surfaces, for your peace of mind.
