5 Fast Facts: 2016 Honda CR-V

5 Fast Facts: 2016 Honda CR-V

By Joseph Dobrian, June 08, 2016

Following a major refresh for the 2015 model year—including a new powertrain, enhanced exterior and interior styling, and many new standard and available features—the 2016 Honda CR-V adds a new Special Edition (SE) trim. The new Special Edition CR-V is positioned above the LX trim, and features larger 17-in. alloy wheels with an exclusive two-tone finish, second-row and rear privacy glass, and security system.

Here are some other facts about Honda’s popular compact crossover SUV:

1) The CR-V is now available in 12 trim/drivetrain versions. Standard equipment includes the 7-in. capacitive touch-screen Display Audio telematics interface. Display Audio, standard on EX and above trim levels, allows the user to tap, pinch, and swipe—as on a smartphone or tablet—to control audio and other telematics features.
2) Standard powertrain on the 2016 CR-V is a 2.4-liter, direct-injection, DOHC i-VTEC inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and has EPA fuel-economy ratings of 26 mpg city/33mpg highway/29 mpg combined for front-wheel-drive models and 25/31/27 with all-wheel drive.
3) The CR-V’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) front body structure helps the SUV to absorb and disperse the energy of a frontal-collision crash. Additional standard safety equipment on all CR-Vs includes an electronic stability control system, SmartVent front-side air bags, and a front-seat design that can help reduce severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision, Honda says.
4) The available Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistance features includes Honda LaneWatch, forward-collision warning, collision-mitigation braking system, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning.
5) Exterior color options include black, white, red, copper, brown, light blue, dark blue, silver, titanium grey, and steel grey. Interiors are available in grey or black.
