Engines and Fuel Economy

CR-V models begin with a standard 2.4L 4-cylinder 16-valve DOHC I-VTEC engine, producing 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. The available 1.5L 16-valve DOHC engine offers a step up in power, 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. What kinds of fuel economy figures can you expect from these two powertrains?

  • In two-wheel drive, the standard 2.4L engine generates an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway*.
  • In all-wheel drive, the vehicle can produce 25 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway*.
  • Choose the available 1.5L engine for an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway in two-wheel drive*.
  • When equipped with the 1.5L in all-wheel drive, you can expect up to 27 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway*.

All models also have an Eco-Assist system to make the most out of gas mileage. It's also convenient that the CR-V only requires unleaded fuel, so there's no need to splurge on premium at the pump. Overall, this SUV can save you quite a bit in annual fueling costs.

Suspension and Handling

The CR-V handles beautifully with a refined suspension and an array of well-tuned features. The front of the CR-V has MacPherson struts while the rear is a multi-link double wishbone setup. Models also come with a variable ratio electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system for optimal handling. You will also find ventilated front brakes and solid rear disc brakes. Shifting is smooth and seamless in the CR-V, as it comes with a Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode.

Aerodynamic Body

The CR-V body features refined accents, elevating both style and performance. An Active Shutter Grille controls wind flow for premium aerodynamics. This small SUV has a wide stance to firmly grip the road, so you can enjoy a stable feel. The sleek rear spoiler comes with an integrated brake light for safety. Furthermore, models come with all-season tires. Drivers have the choice for standard 17-inch alloy wheels on the LX or larger 18-inch alloy wheels on higher trim levels.
