What is the best year for a used Honda CR-V AWD?

I’ve loved Honda CR-Vs for years and have decided 2023 is the year I finally buy myself one. I want to get the best one on the market. What’s the best year for a used Honda CR-V with AWD?

New year, new car! We love to hear it. The best year for a used Honda CR-V AWD will ultimately depend on your driving preferences and lifestyle, but these model years are top picks:
  • 2020 Honda CR-V AWD: Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book rate it 4.1/5.0; J.D. Power rates it 80/100; driver-assistance features added this year include automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control
  • 2016 Honda CR-V AWD: Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book rate it 4.1/5.0; J.D. Power rates it 81/100; paddle shifters and LED daytime running lights were added this year; fewer customer complaints filed this year than the 2017 and 2018 model years
  • 2009 Honda CR-V AWD: Edmunds rates it 4.6/5.0; Kelly Blue Book rates it 4.5/5.0; J.D. Power rates it 83/100; though dated, it has some of the best reliability ratings of CR-Vs, as well as great customer reviews
But don’t just pick the model year you want—you’ll need to know what to look for when buying a used car. A few things that should be on your checklist when purchasing a used car include the used car’s mileage, its interior and exterior condition, and driving condition. Good luck with your hunt!
