Your reputation on the road will always be top-notch with the luxurious new CR-V, offered in LX, SE, EX, EX-L, and Touring trims for 2016. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine found throughout the lineup has the strength needed for everyday driving and weekend getaways alike. Feel the pull of 185 horsepower @ 6400 RPM that reacts quickly and seamlessly when you press the accelerator and engage this exceptionally smooth 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC® powertrain, which features a drive-by-wire throttle system. At high speeds, the engine is capable of managing horsepower and torque with better fuel-efficiency results thanks to an Eco Assist System. Hill-start assist is also standard across the board, so you won’t have to worry about sliding backwards on a steep grade when accelerating from a stop. The direct-injected engine produces 181 lb-ft of torque @ 3900 RPM and comes equipped with a standard CVT gearbox with sport mode and front-wheel drivetrain. A Real Time® all-wheel drivetrain with Intelligent Control is also available across the lineup if you want a little more traction for driving in the rain or over inclement roads.
The 2016 CR-V is still built with unit-body construction which helps to make this small SUV easy to maneuver in the city but still sturdy enough for life on the open roads. A MacPherson front strut suspension and reactive-link double wishbone rear suspension system and front and rear stabilizer bars give the 2016 Honda CR-V its sure-footed driving dynamic that is both well-dampened and reactive. The electric power steering system is a power-assisted rack-and-pinion system. Don’t worry about city driving, the maneuverable 2016 CR-V can make a full circle turn in just 37.5 feet. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models have ventilated front and solid rear disc brakes. With over 6” of ground clearance, you can even take your CR-V on small off-road adventures, especially if you have the optional AWD system equipped. With wither drive configuration, you can tow a trailer weighing up to 1,500 pounds. The new CR-V seats five and total passenger volume in the cabin measures at 104.1 cubic feet; you get 37.2 cubic feet of space for cargo when all seats are in place. If you need to carry extra-large cargo items, just fold the rear bench seat down into the floor to open up 70.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. The fuel tank holds 15.3 gallons of regular unleaded gasoline, and with front-wheel drive, you can get up to 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway**.
The 2016 Honda CR-V brings a host of standard safety features, like hill-start assist, which manages brake-line pressure during the transition from the brake pedal to the accelerator. With hill-start assist, the CR-V won't start rolling backwards when you're accelerating from a stop on a steep grade. The anti-lock braking system further reduces the risk of slipping and sliding during risky weather conditions and surprise road hazards; choose the AWD option for sure-footed traveling in all weather conditions including rain, wind, and even snow. You’ll get Honda LaneWatch in EX, EX-L, and Touring Trims, and the top-of-the-line CR-V Touring brings standard Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control systems as well. Enjoy numerous technology features in the 2016 CR-V; all models offer standard Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Streaming Audio, Pandora integration, and an SMS text-message function that allows you to stay connected without taking your hands off the wheel.
