CR-V Green

The 2016 Honda CR-V is a stalwart in the small Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) segment. Its reputation for long-term dependability, high fuel economy, and expansive interior room bode well for individuals and families alike. In this post, let’s take a deeper look at the differentiation between the CR-V All-Wheel Drive (AWD)’s trim levels, which range from LX to Touring, and $25,045* (2016 CR-V LX AWD) to $33,395* (CR-V Touring AWD), respectively.

CR-V Engine

Under the hood, all 2016 Honda CR-V models employ a Honda “Earth Dreams” direct-fuel-injected four-cylinder engine. Its 185 horsepower (SAE net) are channeled through a standard Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which maximizes power and efficiency across all types of driving. In Colorado’s mountains, the duo helps keep the engine in its power band, simplifying long ascents. On the highway, it allows for a more relaxed engine speed which, in tandem with other fuel-saving technologies, contributes to all 2016 Honda CR-V AWD models achieving a 31-MPG** highway rating.

CR-V Trunk

Inside, the CR-V boasts class-leading volume and flexibility, thanks to a large cargo area, and vast rear seat headroom and legroom. By the numbers, all 2016 Honda CR-V models boast 38.6 inches of rear-seat headroom, 38.3 inches of rear-seat legroom, and up to 70.9 cubic feet of cargo space (rear seats folded). A standard easy-fold-down 60/40 split folding rear seat collapses with the pull of a lever, easing cargo ingress from the rear of the vehicle.

CR-V Woods

Beyond standard features, each individual 2016 Honda CR-V trim level offers a customized way to outfit your utility vehicle.
