The 2016 Honda CR-V is a compact crossover that’s made to appeal to Malin and Keno drivers who want to combine the elevated ride height, generous dimensions, and off-roading potential of an SUV with the easy maneuvering and compelling efficiency ratings that come along with a standard car.
The CR-V has defined its class since debuting all the way back in the late nineties, and it’s been steadily refined of the years. Now boasting advanced driver-assistance safety features and a thoroughly modern interior, the 2016 model is in a league of its own.
The 2016 Honda CR-V cuts a commanding presence on the roads of Malin and Keno, but its striking exterior conceals enviably efficient engineering. With front-wheel drive (FWD), you can expect an impressive 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.* With Real Time, you’ll get 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.*
Some crossovers make you pay extra for the class of engine you deserve, but not the CR-V. Each and every model is able to harness up to 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque from a 2.4L four-cylinder engine, one of the most powerful standard engines in the compact crossover class.
Malin and Keno drivers will also be treated to a premium transmission system no matter their chosen trim level, with continuously variable transmission (CVT) fitted is standard across the board. That means that the stellar efficiency ratings that come along with a manual transmission are combined with the convenience of automatic.
Whether you require all-weather peace of mind or the confidence to hit the trail, Honda’s advanced Real Time AWD system can tick the box. It employs an intelligent control system to immediately react to conditions and send power where it is needed, but is so smooth that its effects appear unnoticeable to the driver.
The team at Honda has pulled out all the stops to make sure the 2016 CR-V burns as little fuel as possible without sacrificing first-rate performance. However, Honda hasn’t stopped there. The Ecological Drive Assist System (Eco Assist) has been added to monitor your driving style, displaying its impact on the vehicle’s efficiency and helping you make adjustments to improve your skills.
Hated pulling away on an incline because you have to perform a handbrake hill start? It sure is an inconvenient maneuver to make, so the CR-V eliminates the need. A cutting-edge Hill Start Assist system prevents the vehicle from rolling up or down a gradient — it performs the hard work for you.
Backing up can be tricky at the best of times, but when snow is falling, the kids are misbehaving, or you’re in a cramped environment, the task becomes a real hassle. Fortunately, Honda has equipped the CR-V with an innovative rearview camera that offers three different viewing angles: normal, wide, or top-down.
ACE stands for Advanced Compatibility Engineering, and it’s part of what makes the CR-V so resilient towards damage. Developed and tested in Honda’s own indoor, multi-directional, crash-test facility, it utilizes a polygonal frame that directs frontal collision force away from passengers, making injuries less likely in the event of a crash.
The 2016 Honda CR-V stays sure-footed thanks to its Vehicle Stability Assist system. Coming standard with each trim level, this technology is able to brake individual wheels intuitively and reduce engine power if you’re in danger of either oversteering or understeering. If you’re in danger of losing your grip on the road, Vehicle Stability Assist can set you right.
The team at Honda has taken safety further by offering a range of Honda Sensing driver-assistance features. These actively keep an eye out for potential problems, with the Forward Collision Warning system providing an alert if a frontal collision should become imminent. You’ll be able to correct your course or slow down in order to avoid an accident.
It isn’t hard to see how long distance highway driving can take its toll on your attention span, but the Lane Departure Warning system will ensure that a lapse of concentration doesn’t result in an accident. Should you start to deviate from your chosen lane without indicating, it will provide an alert, allowing you to stay centered and out of danger.
Collision Mitigation Braking is an extension of your Forward Collision Warning System. While the latter technology is able to let you know if you’re in danger, the former can actually step in to apply the brakes if you should fail to respond to the alert.
A slight issue with the way your seat is supporting you is always aggravating, but it can turn to torture, or even create back injuries, over longer distances. Luckily, EX and above CR-V models feature a driver’s seat that can be adjusted in 10 different ways at the push of a button. The Touring trim even boasts a two-position memory system to return the seat to your chosen settings after someone else has driven the vehicle.
Fitted as standard in EX and EX-L Navi trim levels, the HondaLink Next Generation system brings the latest connectivity technology to Malin and Keno drivers. Just take a compatible smartphone and you’ll be able to link up to the CR-V’s touchscreen, then touch, pinch, and swipe through music, podcasts, and others features while sitting comfortably in your vehicle.
Controlling your cruise settings, audio settings, phone, and i-MID system should be as simple as possible, and you should never need to squint to make out allthe information. That’s why EX models and above are fitted with a 7-inch touchscreen, bringing your infotainment and vehicle settings out in glorious high definition and full color.
The 2016 Honda CR-V is built to explore, whether that means heading off-road or discovering a new city. One thing is for sure, the available Honda satellite-linked navigation system will ensure that you keep track of your position and help you search out new destinations. With Honda HD traffic, you can even stay one step ahead of gridlock and roadwork.
Need to stay connected on the go? A Bluetooth system comes standard, so you’ll be able to use your phone through the CR-V’s speakers. You’ll stay a call away from friends and family members, but won’t need to take your eyes from the road or your hands from the wheel.
The 2016 Honda CR-V dominates its class when it comes to cargo-carrying capability. Even with a full complement of five passengers, you’ll find a generous 37.2 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. Need more? Just fold those rear seats down to boost your cargo area to a staggering 70.9 cubic feet.
The CR-V is ideal for lovers of the great outdoors, and they’ll naturally want to take all of their backcountry toys with them. The roof mount allows you to do just that, taking two bikes with ease while using a lockable attachment to hold them securely in place and keep them secure when you stop off on the way to the trail.
Storage space is crucial if you enjoy taking road trips with the whole family. If you’d like to take more than the CR-V can carry, or if you’d just like a separate compartment for bulkier items, the roof box is ideal. Measuring 55 inches in length, 35 inches wide, and 18 inches high, it delivers an additional 13 cubic feet of lockable storage space.
The available visor adds a sporty, aerodynamic touch to your CR-V, but its main purpose is more practical. With this accessory fitted, you’ll find that wind noise and glare are both reduced, improving your driving experience, even while allowing more air to circulate through the cabin during inclement weather.
It’s one thing for a cargo area to have room to spare, but Oregon families will appreciate how welcome an organizer can be. The CR-V’s is made from sturdy canvas to provide rigid support, stopping easily spillable items from causing mischief when you drive. There are also partitions to keep items separate and secure, and the organizer collapses when not in use.
Ever wished for eyes in the back of your head while you’re reversing? Back-Up Sensors are the next best thing. Four ultrasonic sensors are used to keep your aware of the area behind your vehicle, beeping at varying frequencies depending on your distance to rear obstructions.
The Remote Engine Start System II is a favorite among those who value complete comfort no matter the weather outside. It allows you to start your CR-V’s engine from up to 400 feet away, activate climate control settings, check vehicle status, and lock or unlock your doors.
