Honda’s 2016 CR-V

After a major refresh for 2015 that brought a new powertrain, significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling, and a long list of new standard and available features, the 2016 Honda CR-V returns with a new Special Edition (SE) trim and a lineup with a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $23,845.

The new Special Edition CR-V is positioned above the LX trim by adding features such as larger 17-inch alloy wheels with an exclusive two-tone finish. The complete 2016 CR-V lineup is as follows: LX, SE, EX, EX-L and Touring.

Interior design

Stylish and comfortable, the CR-V is available in two different interior colors: black fabric/leather and gray fabric/leather. Amenities include remote entry system, floor mats, an available dual-zone automatic climate control (EX-L, Touring), available push-button start (EX, EX-L, Touring) and an available six-speaker (EX) or seven-speaker audio system (EX-L, Touring).

With seating for five, CR-V’s interior dimensions are listed as 38.3 inches of rear legroom, 56.4 inches of rear shoulder room and 53.1 inches of rear hip room. Additionally, cargo volume is 37.2 cubic feet or 70.9 cubic feet with rear seats folded.

Exterior style

The CR-V is offered in 10 exterior colors, including hues such as Crystal Black Pearl, White Diamond Pearl and Basque Red Pearl II. Exterior features include body-colored door handles on EX, EX-L and Touring models (black door handles on LX and SE models), roof mounted antenna, 17-inch alloy wheels on SE, EX, and EX-L models and 18-inch alloy wheels on Touring models.

Under the hood
