Quick question. When this model final arrives will this be the year of a mid cycle refresh? (I really didn't think the 2020 version was much of a refresh). Thank you.

the 2020 is the mid cycle refresh, you might see a few new colors for 2022 but for 2021 expect the smallest of changes.

like on the 2017to 2018 when they made the little gas n temp lights red vs white or 2017 to 2019 when they changed steering wheel buttons or some bs

Hmm - those are already red in mine!

So weird how Honda differentiates a product so wildly around the globe.

If history is any indication, I expect the 2022 Model Year will debut the Gen6 CR-V.

Gen5 2017 - 2021 = 5 model years
Gen4 2012 - 2016 = 5 model years
Gen3 2007 - 2011 = 5 model years
Gen2 2002 - 2006 = 5 model years
Gen1 1996 - 2001 = 6 model years (mid-cycle refresh in 1999)

yea the 2017 is all white, i guess people complained that the gauge was hard to read so 2018 & up are red.

Red is certainly a bit better for not disrupting night vision.. but with all the other white remaining in the instrument display, not to mention oncoming headlights while driving......I am more of the mind that Honda was just simplifying their supply chain a bit... since they clearly had red indicators in their EU branding and white in North America for the first year.

We do know that the CEO of Honda has been biting down hard on the organizational structure and division alignments at Honda to yank back on the different regions driving so many region specific specifications. Narrowing options and features across all regions and narrowing their part numbers and supply chains is certainly the right business direction for improving overall quality of product and reducing costs of manufacturing. Less is more.... both in terms of cost to manufacture as well as consistency and quality of finished product. Probably goes a long way toward reducing setup induced quality issues in the factory lines as well.
