The Honda CR-V is one of the most popular crossover SUVs on the market. Drivers really love this vehicle and we think that the new 2016 Honda CR-V will continue to impress. The CR-V SUV is back for the new model year, bringing with it the high efficiency, impressive performance, and unmatched versatility of the previous model. If you’re wondering what’s new for the 2016 Honda CR-V, we can help.
The new CR-V is actually a carryover for 2015, so it doesn’t actually bring any significant updates to the 2016 model year. This actually isn’t a bad thing and we like that Honda is taking the “don’t fix what isn’t broken” approach. It wasn’t terribly long ago that the CR-V had some major changes, so we’re happy to see the same incredible CR-V back again for 2016.
