Serving Charlottesville, VA

Are you trying to decide between buying the 2022 CR-V or the 2023 version? The CR-V is a compact crossover that has been a preferred model among drivers in the Charlottesville area for over two decades. It has marched through several major generational updates over the years and breaks into its sixth generation in 2023. As a next-generation model, the 2023 CR-V has stunning improvements that make it a standout option. However, the 2022 CR-V and the 2023 option are well-equipped models that are easy on the eyes. Are you ready to explore the prominent differences between these options?


When you compare the 2022 CR-V to the 2023 model year, you will find that they both are offered with a 1.5-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. The engine is combined with an auto continuously variable transmission to give you 190 horsepower behind the wheel. A new powertrain is also available in select 2023 trim levels.

A few other mechanical features are new for 2023. These include a Snow drive mode, hill descent control, and Intelligent Control for the all-wheel drive system.


The sporty curves of the 2022 CR-V are easy on the eyes and has been taken to the next level for 2023. The CR-V shows a dropped beltline, greater width, and longer nose for the latest model year. Additional improvements to the nose include a more athletic look to the front bumper and a new mesh design for the large grille. The headlights have also been reshaped and feature an upper LED light bar.
