Honda CR-V Horsepower and Torque

The Honda CR-V can summon up athletic power whether you’re starting from standstill in the city, changing lanes on the highway, or tackling broken terrain on off-road trails. That’s thanks to Honda fitting the same Honda CR-V engine across all trim levels. Regardless of your chosen configuration, hitting the gas will put you in command of a 1.5L In-Line 16-Valve DOHC 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger for:

  • Up to 190 hp
  • Up to 179 lb-ft of torque.

Edmunds testing saw it make 0 to 60 mph in an impressive 7.5 seconds, and that kind of power delivers a healthy Honda CR-V towing capacity of up to 1,500 lbs. Even as you’re accelerating hard, Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) keeps engine noise from invading your cabin.

Honda CR-V Fuel Economy

As written by the team at Car and Driver: “Good to look at, good to drive, and good on gas: the CR-V is among the most fuel-efficient compact crossovers we’ve tested.” They appreciated the sophisticated Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode, which comes as standard to combine the effortless natural of automatic with the outstanding efficiency achieved by a manual.


That cutting-edge Honda CR-V transmission delivers:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway with FWD models*
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway with AWD models*

Take the 14.0 gallon tank into account and it’s clear the Honda CR-V isn’t going to make you keep checking the horizon for gas stations. It even features leading efficiency features:

  • Idle-Stop: Shuts the engine down when you come to a halt, then starts it up again when you hit the gas.
  • Eco Assist™ System: Provides visual feedback that shows how your driving style is impacting fuel consumption.


Honda CR-V Performance Features

The Honda CR-V comes with front-wheel drive (FWD) as standard, but all trims can be upgraded with a Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ for those seeking added all-weather confidence or the ability to head down light off-road trails with total peace of mind. Real Time AWD will send power to the rear wheels proactively to deliver flawless traction and control – feel free to visit your local showroom if you’d like to compare Honda CR-V FWD vs. AWD in person.

Real Time AWD is only one of the Honda CR-V’s phenomenal performance features. Further highlights include:

  • MacPherson Strut Front Suspension
  • Multi-Link Double Wishbone Rear Suspension
  • Variable Ratio Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS)
  • Front and Rear Stabilizer Bars
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc Brakes:
  • All-Season Tires

    Honda CR-V Active Safety Features

    Active safety features do more than just keep you from harm – they’re also responsible for sharpening your ride to ensure complete control is maintained through every journey. Honda CR-V active safety features include:

    • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Monitors and adjusts driving dynamics to prevent understeer and oversteer.
    • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Intelligently distributes braking power between all four wheels.
    • Brake Assist: Senses emergency braking situations and applies additional braking force.
    • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Improper tire pressure can impact performance and efficiency, so the Honda CR-V lets you know when they need attention.
