The new 2021 Honda CR-V Black Edition is an impressive SUV that provides attractive design and innovative technological systems. The main assets of this model are reliability, practicality, and comfort.
Thanks to all that, the Black Edition version is one of the most wanted on the market. Besides, it’s very recognized on the roads and it hosts sporty driving performance and low emissions. Under the hood, there is a potent 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.
2021 Honda CR-V Black Edition Package
The most premium package available right now on the market is definitively the Black Edition. The new CR-V model with this package brings more sporty styling and a recognized look. Overall, the Black Edition will bring more black accents. The same package is also available on many of Honda`s SUVs, for example, the Pilot model. The dull look of the regular model has been replaced with the more attractive black grille, rear and front bumper trim, power tailgate with programmable height hands-free access, side sills, 19″ aluminum-alloy black wheels with P235/55 R19 tires, and multi-link rear suspension.
We like how the manufacturer balanced all that and make this SUV more attractive. The front of this SUV dominates thanks to active shutter grille, LED headlights (High and low beam), LED fog lights, and splash guards.

Of course, there will be plenty of rooms through two rows of seats. Comfort is excellent and the manufacturer added heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control with an air-filtration system, floor mats Black Edition, and leather-wrapped shift knob. As you can imagine, everything inside is luxurious. Lastly, this model will feature more standard equipment than before.

Pros and Cons
The new 2021 Honda CR-V Black edition is the SUV that will look more attractive than the standard one. As you may know, the manufacturer added more features and blacked accents to make this SUV more competitive.
Besides that, we like a long list of Honda Sensing suite of driver assists. However, as the regular model, a con of the Black Edition is the same limited towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.
