In January 1997, Honda introduced a new compact SUV to the North American market called the CR-V.

Year-to-year changesEdit


Original CR-Vs only came in one trim level (LX) and four-wheel drive.


The 1998 CR-V came in two trim levels: LX and EX. The LX was available with either front (4x2) or all-wheel drive (4x4), while the EX had built-in 4x4.
