Yes! The 2019 Honda CR-V does offer AWD as an option for Monroe drivers. At each CR-V trim level, you have the choice to upgrade to the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. Explore the Honda CR-V AWD system at Middletown Honda, then contact us to take a test drive and experience it in person.

What is the Real Time AWD System?


Honda offers a Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ in each Honda CR-V trim level that assists in giving drivers better control on the Warwick roads. The all-wheel drive system on the CR-V can help you by:

  • Sending power to the rear wheels when climbing hills, etc., for better traction
  • Reacting quickly to regain traction lost due to severe road conditions
  • Enhancing stability by redistributing torque between the front and rear while turning

This drivetrain is designed to give you the confidence and control, whether you are battling inclement weather, zooming around a highway curve, or taking your new Honda CR-V out on rougher terrain.

Is All-Wheel Drive Worth It?

If you live in a climate with rain, snow, or ice, you’ll be glad you have the AWD drivetrain, and the 2019 CR-V delivers excellent fuel economy whether you choose all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. Having the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ will offer you better peace of mind when rough weather comes to the Goshen area.

What Other CR-V Features Enhance Performance & Safety?

Standard performance features Hill Start Assist, Brake Assist, and Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control can all make for safer driving in slippery road conditions and curvy highways. Starting on the CR-V EX, the Honda Sensing® suite offers safety features like the Lane Keeping Assist System and the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ to improve all-around vehicle safety.
