New 2016 Honda CR-V

2016 Honda CR-V Overview

New/Notable:
  • Extensive refresh last year introduced new styling and powertrain updates
  • New Special Edition (SE) trim for 2016
  • IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award winner (for models with front crash prevention)
Returning after a major update last year, the 2016 Honda CR-V is back with a new Special Edition trim level, but no other significant updates for the new model year.

The Special Edition (SE) is now the fifth trim level available on the CR-V and slots in above the LX, but below the EX, EX-L, and Touring. SE models get unique two-tone wheels, privacy glass in the rear and second-row, and a security system.

The CR-V goes head-to-head with the Toyota RAV4 and Mazda CX-5 among others in a crowded small SUV segment. Last year’s styling updates brought the CR-V more in line with the rest of the Honda lineup and it bears a striking resemblance to the Accord sedan. The front grille is flanked by sharp headlight clusters, and an off-color lower element that pinches up to give the CR-V a more expressive fascia than the previous model. A power liftgate and is optional for easier loading/unloaded. The available 17- and 18-inch tires have also been widened, which improves grip.

Under the hood, the CR-V got a new engine/transmission combination in the refresh. The 185-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder (also borrowed from the Accord) is part of Honda’s “Earth Dreams” family of engines and combined with a CVT, gives the new CR-V a leg-up on fuel economy. Two-wheel drive models offer 27/34 mpg city/highway, with all-wheel drive models right behind at 26/33 mpg. The CR-V also got mechanical updates to improve drivability with a more rigid body structure, tighter steering ratios, and suspension updates.

Inside, the CR-V continues to offer a flexible cabin with its 60/40-split rear seats the fold and tumble forward with the simple tug of a strap. There is also what Honda calls a “conversation mirror” up front; the sunglasses holder flips down partway to reveal a mirror, so parents can see what’s going on in the backseat without having to turn around. The center console has been redesigned with removable partitions to customize the storage space.

The CR-V’s standard features list has expanded with air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, SMS text message functionality, power windows/locks, Pandora internet radio, USB port, and newly added vents for rear seat passengers coming on every CR-V. Although each trim level has only gone up around $200 in MSRP, the EX in particular gets a lot of new features such as Honda’s LaneWatch system, power driver’s seat, push button start, a power moonroof, heated front seats, and a 7-inch screen for the audio system.

Honda also introduces several new safety technologies to its lineup with the CR-V. The Touring trim features a new suite of safety features called “Honda Sensing” which employs sensors and a forward facing camera to power safety technology like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, a lane keeping assist system that will steer the car autonomously in short stints, forward collision warning, and a collision mitigation braking system. Standard safety features include a rearview camera, six airbags, an electronic stability system, and antilock brakes.
