2016 Honda CR-V Buyer's Guide

The 2016 Honda CR-V is a compact sport utility vehicle that was designed to appeal to a wide customer base thanks to its affordable price. The CR-V offers seating for five passengers and has consistently good safety scores, which positions the CR-V as a family-friendly vehicle. The CR-V has long marked the entry point to Honda’s more expensive SUVs while still being perceived as a step up from the brand’s smaller cars. However, the Honda HR-V, which is new for the 2016 model year, is a subcompact SUV that slots just below the CR-V in Honda’s lineup. The current version of the Honda CR-V has been available since 2012, and it is a steady seller for the brand.

The 2016 Honda CR-V comes with one engine, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes paired to a continuously variable transmission with a sport mode. The front-wheel drive version of the 2016 CR-V gets fuel economy ratings of 27 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, which is excellent for the class. Mileage on the all-wheel-drive CR-V suffers by just 1 mpg, which is still great for a compact SUV.

Why buy the 2016 Honda CR-V?

The 2016 Honda CR-V is a great option for small families, thanks to its spacious seating for five passengers, or for buyers who want a versatile and efficient new car at an affordable price. The 2016 CR-V offers a total of 70.9 cubic feet of cargo space, which is good for the class. The excellent fuel economy makes the CR-V competitive with some cars, so even if fuel mileage is a consideration, the CR-V makes it possible to get an all-wheel drive vehicle with more versatility. The CR-V is offered in five trim levels for this year, so it’s easy to find the right version for any budget, and it offers more standard equipment than most other vehicles in the class.
