Honda Press Release
We're still at least a model year away from the CR-V's mid-cycle model change, so as expected there are minimal changes for the 2019 model year. The navigation option has been dropped from the EX-L trim level for 2019, so if you want factory navi, you'll have to go with a Touring trim. In other news, the CR-V's White Diamond Pearl paint color has been replaced by Platinum White Pearl.
Honda Sensing remains standard on EX-up trim levels.
Pricing for the 2019 CR-V increases by $100 for LX trim levels, $200 for EX and EX-L trim levels, and the 2019 CR-V Touring remains priced the same as the 2018 CR-V Touring.
