  • Honda CR-V Horsepower and Torque
  • Honda CR-V MPG

Honda CR-V Horsepower and Torque

All Honda CR-V trim levels fit a 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC® four-cylinder engine, with EX, EX-L, and Touring models adding a single-scroll turbocharger for a little extra strength. You’ll command:

  • Up to 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque with the standard four-cylinder.
  • Up to 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque with the four-cylinder and turbocharger.

As noted by Edmunds.com: “With capable acceleration, composed handling and confident highway manners, the turbocharged CR-V is a multidisciplined competitor”. That said, the Honda CR-V towing capacity comes in at up to 1,500 lbs. across all trim levels, and performance remains responsive whether you’re crawling through Detroit traffic or cruising in the fast lane.

Honda CR-V MPG

One reason drivers continue to trust the Honda CR-V after decades on the road is its enduring ability to combine spirited performance with practicality efficiency ratings. The latest generation uses a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode to push that reputation further. CVT systems work without conventional shifts for seamless performance and outstanding fuel economy.

You can expect to make:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway in 2WD or 25 and 31 in available AWD with the standard engine*.
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway in 2WD or 27 and 33 in available AWD with the turbocharged engine*.

All trim levels come fitted with an Eco Assist™ System that shows how your driving behavior is impacting fuel consumption. Over time, you’ll coach yourself into a more efficient driving style.

Honda CR-V Performance Features

Available across all trims, the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ enhances control across wet or icy roads and lends the Honda CR-V off-roading abilities beyond your standard vehicle. You’ll even enjoy up to 8.2 inches of ground clearance to ensure driving across unpaved roads won’t be a problem.

Further performance features include:

  • Top-Tier Suspension: All models use MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link double wishbone rear suspension for a smooth and controlled ride.
  • Stabilizer Bars: Fitted at front and rear, stabilizer bars minimalize body roll as you corner.
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc Brakes: Extra power ensures surer stopping power.
  • All-Season Tires: Fitted with standard 17-inch and available 18-inch alloy wheels for faultless traction throughout the year.

Honda CR-V Active Safety Features

Keeping you from harm is clearly the prime responsibility of the Honda CR-V’s selection of active safety features, but the way they perform that role directly enhances performance.

Features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Regulates engine output and selectively applies the brakes to stabilize your vehicle through corners and maintain traction across loose or slippery surfaces.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): When you hit the brakes, braking energy is distributed intelligently between all four wheels to preserve control.
  • Brake Assist: When the vehicle senses you’re making an emergency stop, additional braking force is applied to decrease your speed faster.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Driving on tires with too much or too little air inside negatively impacts performance, so the Honda CR-V lets you know when it’s time to top up or let some out.
