If you’re searching for an SUV that is fuel efficient, look no further than the 2016 Honda CR-V! The 2016 CR-V vaunts a hard to beat combined fuel economy- an amazing 26 MPG in city traffic and 33 MPG out on the highway! The 2016 Ford Escape and 2016 Jeep Cherokee tried to keep up in the segment, but simply cannot provide drivers with a combined 29 MPG. Neither the Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester, nor Toyota RAV4 can beat the 2016 Honda CR-V’s combined fuel economy. Those numbers aren't good enough for savvy shoppers, and we can see why!
According to Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com, the 2016 Honda CR-V takes the Overall Best Buys of 2016: Small SUV award! This is the second year in a row the CR-V has won this award- talk about impressive! The 2015 CR-V was named U.S. News 2015 Best Compact SUV for the Money, and the Best Compact SUV for Families by U.S. News.
The Ford Escape, Jeep Cherokee, Nissan Rouge, Subaru Forester, and Toyota RAV4 did not win these important awards, leaving many shoppers to wonder why. Simply put, the Honda CR-V is the best choice in its class.

Drivers everywhere love the 2016 Honda CR-V for its expansive list of standard features. Even the entry level model comes equipped with a premium interior, rearview camera, Bluetooth® connectivity, USB audio interface, Hill Start Assist, and an Eco Assist™ System that helps achieve those high fuel economy numbers. The competitors may have rearview cameras, but their other systems are far inferior to that on the Honda CR-V. If you want some of these special Assist features on a Nissan Rouge, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, Jeep Cherokee or Subaru Forester, you better be prepared to pay for a more expensive trim level or a hybrid.
Honda’s CR-V is one of the bestselling compact SUVs of the decade, and continues in 2016 with good-looking style and outstanding horsepower with a direct injected 2.4 liter engine. The 2016 Honda CR-V is packed with more standard equipment including Smart Entry with Push Button Start, rear A/C vents, rearview camera and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®. Availability of all wheel drive, navigation, fog lights and premium sound system allow CR-V owners to pay for what they need, not what they don't. Drivers will enjoy interior configurations with easy fold down 60/40 rear split seat that tucks under to create a flat cargo area in back. The interior's audio display, added center console and the CR-V class leading passenger room keep the CR-V in front of the competition again this year. CR-V has many optional equipment choices like automatic climate control, leather and driver's memory seat that owners will love. It’s time to get behind the wheel of a 2016 Honda CR-V!
