Honda CR-V Specs

The Honda CR-V offers several powertrains, starting with a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged base engine that gets up to 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. Every engine offered can tow up to 1,500 pounds and works with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode. This combination helps the Honda CR-V get up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG for 2-wheel drive (2WD) trims.*

Honda CR-V Interior Dimensions

There are two rows of seats and space for five people inside the Honda CR-V. Whether you're behind the wheel or relaxing in the back seats, you'll be able to get comfortable with 41.3 inches of front legroom and 40.4 inches of rear legroom.

The interior is also designed to make room for lots of cargo. There's a large trunk with 39.2 cubic feet of space. Plus, with the easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seatback, you can nearly double your cargo room.

Honda CR-V Amenities

On top of giving you lots of space, the Honda CR-V also offers all sorts of amenities that will help you get comfortable. For example, you'll find plenty of ways to relax with power adjustable front seats. You'll also be able to warm up in the winter with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

The CR-V is also a stylish SUV. It comes with cloth seats, but both leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are also available. It can even feel like a luxury car with classic wood accents along the doors and dashboard.

To give the cabin an open feel, a power moonroof is also available. Plus, you'll also have great visibility during storms thanks to rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Honda CR-V Safety

The Honda CR-V is available in either 2-wheel drive (2WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). Both options will provide you with a safe ride with standard Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control. Inside, there are six standard airbags, an automatic tensioning system on the front seat belts, and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) in the back seats.

You can also rely on technology to help you avoid accidents. The standard multi-angle rearview camera lets you check behind your SUV before backing up, while available driver-assistive technology features like Forward Collision Warning and a Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor will give you more awareness as you drive. You can learn more about Honda CR-V reliability by year from Consumer Reports as well.

Honda CR-V Capability

The Honda CR-V is always prepared to help you grip the road. Every trim level comes with Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and offers Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™.

On top of providing traction and stability, the CR-V also features a high ground clearance, so you can safely drive over potholes and across dirt roads. You can even climb steep hills with an 18.9-degree approach angle (AWD trims).  

Honda CR-V Infotainment

The cabin's sleek, refined style comes together with a high-resolution display in the middle of the dashboard. This is the home of your infotainment system and is available with either a 5-inch LCD monitor or a 7-inch touch-screen.

It lets you stream music and podcasts from your smartphone and helps you stay connected with standard Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and an available SMS text message function. You can also access your favorite smartphone apps through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.

Throughout your drive, you'll have lots of options for music. In addition to using Bluetooth® to stream music from your phone, the system is compatible with Pandora® and offers both SiriusXM® Radio and HD Radio™.

In addition to enjoying your favorite music and helping you stay in touch, the Honda CR-V can also help you find the fastest route. Whether you're stuck in traffic during your commute or you've found yourself somewhere off the beaten path, the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ can guide you with turn-by-turn directions. It also comes with voice recognition, so you can enter a destination without taking your eyes off the road or your hands off the wheel.
