Honda CR-V Specs

The Honda CR-V delivers a capable and efficient drive. It's powered by a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but Real Time AWD™ (All-Wheel Drive) with Intelligent Control System™ is available on every trim level.

That kind of power can enable you to bring some extra cargo along, too. With its 1,500-pound towing capacity, you'll be able to haul a couple dirt bikes, a fishing boat, or a utility trailer. Plus, with its 8.2-inch ground clearance, you can take your cargo over tough terrain.

All this power is managed by an efficient Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). It provides you with precise shifting and helps the Honda CR-V get up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG.i

You'll find lots of convenient cargo room inside the Honda CR-V. There's a large trunk with 39.2 cubic feet of space. A hands-free access power tailgate is available to help you pack up when you've got your hands full. When you need some extra space, you can use the easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seats to create up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo room.

With the back seats upright, there's seating for up to five people. Everyone will have plenty of room to stretch out in the 105.9 cubic feet of passenger space. The driver and front-seat passenger can enjoy 41.3 inches of legroom, while passengers in the back can relax with 40.4 inches of legroom.
