Your CRV is an inline 4, there have been no cars sold with a V4 in many decades. A V6 would not improve your traction at all.

Assuming your AWD system is working properly, the problem is probably the tires. Honda ships those with regular car all season tires, not M&S tires, and if you have the original ones on they are four years old and probably shot, or pretty close to it. Go to a tire shop and have them checked.

No matter how good the AWD system is, if your tires aren't any good, you won't have good traction

I have never driven one but I am aware of the characteristics of vehicles like those

I have also driven in snow and ice up in the mountains

what I demand from my vehicles is the ability to control precisely how the vehicle moves

at all times.

the steering



if one of these does not respond with precision to how I respond to the feedback

given to me by the steering wheel and the seat then I have to adjust by going slower

many small vehicles have engines that do tend to be hard to control precisely because of the way the computer responds . most people do not perceive any difference as they have not really experienced full control. when you have full control and good feedback you can drive out of bad situations.

for example, if I sense that my wheels are starting to slip then I adjust my throttle quickly to match the tire's speed to my road speed so that I do not loose any control of the steering. most cars today do not give you that kind of control. They would tend to keep the engine revved up so that you actually lose speed and control or when they do slow down it is too late and too sudden which would cause your wheels to suddenly slow down which is as bad as slamming on your brakes only you will go sideways.

The CRV has never been sold with a V-6. The only engine is an I-4.

Most likely your problem is the tires. The all season tires that came on your CRV are OK for a light dusting of snow but useless with heavier accumulations. Get a set of snow tires -- with the mountain & snowflake emblem on them such as Bridgestone Blizzaks -- and you will do much better in winter driving.
