Vehicular Specs and Features of the Top Selling 2016 Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V

Many people still view crossover vehicles as a new invention in the vehicle world. The crossover utility vehicle has been around for a very long time and it was Honda that pioneered this segment with their legendary CR-V in 1995. This year’s 2016 Honda CR-V is the fourth generation design for the car and it is perhaps the best ever designed styling, technology, utility, and an engine that offers performance and efficiency. For those living in Washington, PA, Washington Honda is a highly popular dealership that offers their Honda vehicles at extremely affordable rates.


The 2016 Honda CR-V is the second available trim configuration for the CR-V this year. It is easily one of the sportiest looking CUVs in the segment today with a front bumper that features multi-reflector halogen headlights, daytime running headlamps, and automatic fog lights underneath. On each side of this crossover vehicle are four 17” steel alloy wheels that compliment two body-colored side mirrors with turn signal indicators. Moving to the back of the vehicle, there is a power-tailgate release that is accessible via remote keyless entry system.

The 2016 Honda CR-V is built for transporting 5 passengers with enough room for cargo items. The cabin of the vehicle has leather trimmed seats with adjustable features that go well with lumbar support for additional comfort. In addition, the cabin has a third row cargo space for storing personal items.


The 2016 CR-V may not be the speediest CUVs in the segment today; however, it is one of the most fuel economic. It runs on an Inline 2.4 liter, 4-cylinder engine that lets the vehicle easily run on a maximum of 185 horsepower with 181 pound feet of torque. The engine is also designed with a continuously variable automatic transmission that allows the vehicle to produce economic fuel consumption ratings.


To date, the 2016 CR-V is easily a top-seller in the CUV segment. A reason is because of the vehicle’s excellent safety features that protect passengers continuously. Outside, the CR-V has a perimeter theft alarm system that efficiently monitors all external movement. This system temporarily disables the engine via an automatic immobilizer in the event of vehicular theft. It also has daytime running headlamps to keep the pickup more visible during the day. Other exterior safety features of the vehicle are:

  • Tire-pressure Monitoring System
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-lock Brakes
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • 4-wheel ABS


Aside from safety, the technology of the Honda also offers a lot of high tech features. The 2016 CR-V has a remote keyless entry system that utilizes smart key fob sensing to lock/unlock all vehicle entrances and power tailgate release simultaneously. The key fob sensing feature requires the vehicle key to be with drivers at all times. It also has power-adjustable mirrors which can be controlled inside the vehicle. These mirrors even have their own heating feature which is useful for driving in colder climates. Other tech features of the CR-V are:

  • Front Collision Warning - Sensors in the front of the SUV that warn users when the vehicle is in close distance with another vehicle or object.
  • Backup Camera - Transmits live video feed on the HondaLink entertainment system inside the SUV to guide users in parking or backing up.
  • Backup Sensors - Help drivers by chiming in alert noises when the vehicle is in reverse.

The 2016 CR-V also has a lot of modern features inside the vehicle. These features are highlighted by the following:

  • HondaLink Entertainment System
  • LCD Touch Screen
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio
  • Navigation
  • Bluetooth Hands-free Connectivity
  • Voice Control
