2016 Honda CRV Review - Honda Cars Review


2016 Honda CRV Review , UPDATED 10/6/2015:  2016 Honda CR-V doesn’t bring a lot of news, but it does offer a new trim level, or sub-level which slots between the base LX and next in line EX grades. Called a Special Edition (SE), it doesn’t quote as high as some would have expected, but it positions itself where it matters the most as majority of CR-V buyers are likely opting for the similar price range models. Why else would Japanese position it where they did; right?No matter which CR-V you decide to go with, engine is the same. Every 2016 Honda CR-V is powered by the good old 2.4L 4-cylinder unit which yields 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. Every single model gets direct injection and Eco Assist system, together with CVT gearbox. While most of driving fun loss can be credited exactly to the CVT transmission, at least CR-V gets great fuel efficiency out of this.That is the way which Honda’s engineers have chosen, and numbers add up to 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. That works for standard front-wheel drive at least, while optional all-wheel drive lowers the numbers to 25/31 mpg.Design is another one of 2016 Honda CR-V’s solid points, but we wouldn’t give it as high grade as that of engine’s. While Japanese compact crossover exhibits modern cues all over, some would find its overall styling odd, to say the least. While frontal end features all of the modern cues one crossover could, rear end is where things become peculiar. Large tailgate with upward reaching tail-lights isn’t that bad by itself, but thanks to crossovers’ flat and long roofline, the car becomes rather bulky when looked upon from afar.That same long roofline makes 2016 Honda CR-V one of the most spacious crossovers in the niche. Even without third row of seats, Honda’s compact is able to simply devour 5 passengers and their earthly possessions – plus it features great seat folding mechanism. After the recent facelift, CR-V features more refined cabin with top grades getting leather upholstery and metallic accents. Everything looks solid, but gearbox stick is rather high which might bring those unwanted minivan comparisons to mind. Above mentioned SE trim level gets almost no advantage over the base LX level. There are only tinted windows, 17-inch wheels, two-tone paint job and a security system. Speaking of security and safety, CR-V offers forward collision warning, lane departure warning and collision mitigation braking, but only with top Touring trim.
