Small crossover vehicles come with their advantages and the 2016 Honda CR-V is a car which incorporates all those advantages into a one simple car. You get everything that a typical crossover vehicle offers, a fuel efficient performance, enough space for five people and a modest but in fact fairly powerful engine for any kind of a need. So if you are in need of these details, the 2016 Honda CR-V is for you.
This time the CR-V vehicle is going to be offered in five different trim levels which are LX, SE, EX, EX-L and Touring. They all have their own advantages and amenities that they come equipped with but the base level also remains a usable addition if you need it to be. The Special Edition or the SE trim is something new for this year as it comes available with 17-inch wheels and some additional security and privacy settings that are not seen in other forms of the car. In the meantime we published a review of Honda CRV for 2017, so perhaps you can read it as well.
Look for the 2016 Honda CR-V to come out next year when they have managed to scheduled the release date and the pricing is already being offered for the vehicle. With a fairly modest look and an appropriate price range we assume that the 2016 CR-V is going to be a great seller on the market and may even surpass its greatest rival in the segment, the Mazda CX5. Find out about all the needed specs about the car through this review and read everything down below.
2016 Honda CR-V interior
The 2016 Honda CR-V has a very appropriate interior design with lots of headroom and legroom. This is especially concerned for the people who are going to sit at the back and those that are going to be in the middle seat poisoned in the tunnel area. This makes a whole different story when it comes to seating the people and acquiring more comfort. Another great advantage of the vehicle is its cargo area which provides 37.2 cubic feet of space in the back. It is more than enough for you to fit anything they you plan to place there and it helps for when going on linger trips and for larger hauling jobs.
There is also a very nice package of amenities and accessories that can come as standard for the people inside the car. A standard offer includes sunroof, keyless ignition and entry and heated front seats which all come available for the standard trim of the CR-V vehicle. Safety additions are also something that makes the car better than the previous design and the EX version comes with a trick passenger-side-mounted camera that enables us to see the blind spot area. The highest trims of course come with the highest available safety features and even includes the lane-keeping assist and automatic braking.
The 2016 Honda CR-V exterior comes pretty much the same as before. There have not been many changes which will make the CR-V seem drastically changed compared to before. The car will retain its primary looks and will only add some minor changes which will also determent the differences between the trims. The standard LX trim comes with 16-inch steel wheels and some power accessories as well. But the LX as well as the SE can be equipped with the 17-inch alloy wheels and a rear privacy glass. The EX has a special offer of automatic headlights with LED daytime running lights and besides an impressive addition to the inside also comes with a retractable cargo cover.
The EX-L model is the only one that comes with roof rails and provides a very special offer which is used in special circumstances as it adds heated side mirrors. The top tier Touring model besides adding 18-inch wheels also uses the projector beam headlights and also includes the very useful power liftgate. Everything else is more or less the same as before and it can really make a difference this time on which trim you decided to go with as they can provide you more options and more opportunities.
The newest 2016 Honda CR-V vehicle is going to be equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that can make an output of 185 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. This engine options combines with a continuously variable transmission, which is the only transmission option given here. But the car does come with a front- and all-wheel drive on all trims. With the FWD, the car can be estimated to provide and EPA rating of 29 mpg combined (26 city/33 highway), while the AWD gives you the possibility of making 27 mpg combined (25 city/31 highway).
Price and release date
The car is going to be available for next year as its release date is scheduled for the upcoming April. The 2016 Honda CR-V was expected to come out sooner, but it seems that the release is going to be postponed for a few months onward. Yet the price is not a mystery anymore as the base trim is being offered for 24,475 dollars as base MSRP rating.
