Does the Honda CR-V Have AWD?

2021 Honda CR-V
The Honda CR-V is a popular family SUV for many reasons: it has excellent performance and a spacious interior for passengers, cargo, or equipment alongside intelligent connectivity and convenience features for your commute. However, if you’re in the market for a new SUV you may be wondering if the Honda CR-V has AWD. The answer is yes! While each Honda CR-V model comes with front-wheel drive (FWD) standard, all-wheel drive (AWD) is available as an upgrade on every configuration. Learn more about the Honda Real Time AWD system with Honda Universe below, or contact us to arrange a time to test drive the new Honda CR-V.

Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™

To ensure you can drive safely in Jackson, Honda equips its vehicles with the Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. This system installs a rear differential to vehicles with FWD, allowing for an easier upgrade to the AWD system. See how the Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ works on a Honda CR-V with AWD below:

  • 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.
