2016 Honda CR-V: What's New

Vehicle Overview

Honda tweaked the popular CR-V compact SUV for 2015 with several fresh features and technology while introducing a new fuel economy-boosting engine and transmission. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine teams with a continuously variable automatic transmission on all models. All trim levels are available with front- or all-wheel drive. The CR-V competes with the Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, Hyundai Tucson and Mazda CX-5.
New for 2016
A new Special Edition (SE) model slots above the base LX, and its arrival signals that the CR-V, which was last redesigned for the 2012 model year, will soon be redesigned again. The SE comes with 17-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone finish, rear privacy glass and a security system, none of which is available on the LX.
