This remarkable, smartly designed compact crossover is one of the most spacious, most efficient, and safest vehicles on the road today.

Take a look at some of these expert reviews on the current 2016 Honda CR-V.

  • The Car Connection:  “The Honda CR-V may not be the fastest, best-handling compact crossover SUV on the road, but it excels at the things that matter to families that own it. Today’s CR-V is one of the most spacious vehicles in its class, and one of the more fuel-efficient ones, too.”
  • Kelley Blue Book:  “Whether you’re just starting a family or finishing up with one, the 2016 Honda CR-V makes a great choice. Available all-wheel drive (AWD) is perfect for traveling in snow, and you’ll find little to complain about in the areas of fuel economy, reliability and resale figures.”
  • Edmunds: “If you’re shopping for a compact SUV, the 2016 Honda CR-V remains one of your best bets. A spacious, feature-packed cabin and ample cargo space outweigh the minor disappointment that the CR-V doesn’t offer a more powerful engine.”
  • AutoTrader:  “The 2016 Honda CR-V is a 5-passenger, 4-cylinder compact crossover that has consistently been regarded as one of the best and most popular small SUVs in a highly crowded segment . . . We’re a fan of Honda’s updates, as they help to keep the CR-V competitive and modern. We also like the CR-V’s new continuously variable transmission (CVT), as it’s an excellent unit borrowed straight from the popular Accord sedan. We like the CR-V’s new features, especially its LaneWatch blind spot camera, which is one of the most useful gadgets available today.”

Future Models

The Honda CR-V is likely to see some changes as soon as the 2017 model year. Honda is famously tight-lipped about future models. There have been rumors that the new, next generation CR-V could go further up market, seat up to seven, and include more convenience and technology features, much like the latest 2016 Honda Pilot. Of course, since the Pilot seats seven, then Honda might have trouble with the CR-V sapping Pilot sales.Since the CR-V is already the best selling SUV in the world, it seems unlikely that the basic recipe of five seats and efficient four-cylinder engines will change. One thing that Honda might do is install some new powertrain components to help with a fuel economy boost. The new Pilot is available with a new nine-speed automatic that helps it increase efficiency compared to the standard six-speed transmission. The CR-V could also offer this transmission.

Another possibility is the use of a turbocharged four-cylinder. The new 2016 Honda Civic can be had with a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder, which makes 174 hp and helps the Civic hit up to 42 mpg on the highway. This smaller forced induction engine could help the CR-V be even more efficient.
