2016 Honda CR-V Specs & Features
Honda’s popular, compact crossover the CR-V was originally introduced for the 1997 model year. Since then it’s gone through four generations, and most recently it received a major mid-generation refresh for the 2015 model year. The refresh was so well received that the 2015 Honda CR-V went onto win the Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the year, and we couldn’t be prouder of that fact. But what’s about the newest version? What makes it great? We thought we would take a look at the 2016 Honda CR-V specs & features to show you why the 2016 model is every bit as good as its most recent predecessor.

Due to the major facelift that the 2015 CR-V had just received, Honda didn’t think it necessary to change anything for the 2016 model year. There may be subtle changes to the interior or exterior, but nothing of note changed. That isn’t a bad thing though, because that means this is still the same exact vehicle that just won a Motor Trend award – equally as impressive, and just as good an option in the compact crossover segment.
With a multitude of trim levels to choose from, you have multiple options in transmissions, drivetrains and fuel efficiencies. But there is only one engine option, an Earth Dreams Technology 2.5L 4-cylinder engine capable of delivering 185 horsepower alongside 181 pound-feet of torque, which is plenty of power to get a vehicle the size of the CR-V up and moving.
But perhaps one of the most impressive aspects of the 2016 Honda CR-V is safety. Equipped with the available Honda Sensing safety suite, your CR-V will be packed with driver-assistive features like Honda LaneWatch, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and much more. All of these features combined with the ACE front body structure make the CR-V an incredibly safe vehicle, which should give you much confidence when sitting behind the wheel.
