What 2022 Honda CR-V Model Should I lease: CR-V Special Edition Vs. CR-V EX

You can’t possibly make a list of the best cars in the compact SUV class without including the Honda CR-V. If you want to lease a car with the best combination of solid quality and value, a Honda lease fits the description.

If you’re looking to lease a small crossover that checks all the right boxes, the 2022 Honda CR-V lease should be a top consideration. This Honda’s small SUV effortlessly appeals to shoppers all-round. From the inside, it affords a spacious and comfortable cabin with upscale looks and loads of amenities. It also gets one of the largest cargo holds in the class and excellent fuel economy numbers—all at competitive pricing. The 2022 Honda CR-V is a strong value, the right compact SUV for many shoppers. However, what is the right CR-V trim to lease?

What Is The Best 2022 Honda CR-V Trim To Lease?

Honda offers the 2022 CR-V in five trims—the base LX, Special Edition, EX, EX-L, and Touring. All of which seat up to five. All trims come standard with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Front-wheel drive is also standard across the trim levels, with AWD being optional, except for the top-line Touring trim, which comes standard with AWD. There’s also a hybrid version of the 2022 Honda CR-V.

All 2022 CR-V models offer strong value for money, even the base model easily appeals to shoppers. However, moving up the trim levels to the Special Edition or EX models offers you more desirable features at a fair bargain.

2022 Honda CR-V Special Edition

Sitting above the base LX model, the CR-V Special Edition model starts at $27,600, a thousand dollars more than the base LX.

Engine & Performance

Like every other 2022 Honda CR-V, except for the hybrid variants, the CR-V Special Edition model sports a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. This engine sends all its powers to the front wheels, but AWD is still available. It also pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Not many rivals come close to this small crossover when it comes to fuel economy numbers. The 2022 CR-V Special Edition model earns an EPA estimated 28/34 mpg city/highway with the standard FWD configuration and 27/32 mpg city/highway with AWD.

Interior, Technology

The Special Edition model still affords the general CR-V’s attractive and spacious cabin. However, it is packed with more comfort and convenience features than the base LX. In addition to what the LX will give you, this model adds a 7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, and an extra USB port. Honda also equipped this model with remote engine start, proximity keyless entry, heated front seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

2022 Honda CR-V EX

The more refined and more equipped 2022 CR-V EX model starts at $28,910.

Engine & Performance

Under the hood, nothing has changed. The LX model still sports the same 190-hp 1.5-liter turbo-four powertrain.

Interior, Technology

Except for the extended wheelbase version, EX-L, the 2022 CR-V EX model still affords the same passenger and cargo space as other CR-V models. However, it comes fully stacked with more comfort and convenience features than the base LX and the Special Edition models.

The 2022 CR-V EX gains 18-inch wheels, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a moonroof, and rear-seat USB ports. For safety, it comes with more standard driver assists features, including blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

The 2022 Honda CR-V will always remain a top choice for many shoppers hoping to lease a compact SUV. To get a new CR-V at the best bargain, contact us at 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
