The 2016 Honda CR-V MPG Ratings Showcase Impressive Efficiency

March 20th, 2016 by

2016 Honda CR-VThe 2016 Honda CR-V mpg ratings, cargo space, and features show why it’s a great choice for drivers from Boulder and Denver. Unlike other crossovers, the CR-V offers one superior powertrain across all models instead of making you pay extra, so you’ll enjoy smooth, powerful performance and generous efficiency ratings, no matter your chosen trim level.

Power and Efficiency

A crossover needs to walk a fine line. Drivers expect enough power for the drive to remain responsive when the vehicle is fully-loaded or crossing uneven terrain, but efficiency ratings need to be high enough to make the model practical for everyday driving.

The 2016 Honda CR-V’s powertrain has been designed to blend those two requirements.

  • CR-V Power: A 2.4L four-cylinder is fitted as standard with every model, putting Boulder and Denver drivers in command of up to 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
  • CR-V Efficiency: The vehicle’s considerable output is expertly refined via a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Most vehicles only offer this cutting-edge system as an option, but the CR-V provides it as standard. That means you’ll make up to  26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway* with FWD.

Available All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

Each and every trim level of the 2016 Honda CR-V is available with Honda’s celebrated Real Time AWD system. This advanced system is able to sense traction loss as it occurs, then automatically transfer power to the rear wheels in order to prevent drivers from losing safe purchase on the road below.

That results in superior peace of mind when you’re traversing off-road trails or driving on rainy, snowy, or icy roads, but it doesn’t produce the marked drop in efficiency that is an all too common result of adding AWD. In fact, The 2016 CR-V is still able to make up to 25 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway* with AWD.

The 2016 Honda CR-V MPG Ratings are Only Part of Its Appeal

There are more than a few reasons why the 2016 Honda CR-V is so popular all across the country, but its powertrain is one of the biggest. To take one out for a test-drive near Denver, just come to the showroom at Fisher Honda in Boulder, CO.
