According to the first reviews and articles we are not far away from the truth. The 2016 Honda CRV will have lots of advantages and one of them is the engine offer which is consisted of three different engine units. Of course CRV has an appealing design, as you can see in these pictures. Whether this is the right car for you or nor you may decide after reading this review.
2016 Honda CRV Engine
There are three different engine options for the new 2016 Honda CRV for the North American. The base (and the least powerful) is the 1.5l turbocharged which, according to the unconfirmed rumors, is going to be available for the European market. This engine is able to produce ‘only’ 120 horsepower. However, the fuel consumption is staggering. With this engine new Honda CRV reaches 66 miles with only one gallon! I bet you cannot think of any other vehicle that has fuel economy as good as this one. The combination of power and mileage is just perfect, but just in case Honda decided to offer few more engines. Three of them will be available in the USA, the 1.6l with 118 horsepower, the 2.0l with 150 horsepower and the 2.2l. We are still waiting for the power figures of the last one. There will be one more engine option, but it is still unknown whether it will available in the US. It is the 2.4l with the direct injection with unknown output.

Interior and exterior of new 2016 Honda CRV
When you put new CRV next to its predecessor you will inevitably spot several differences. The last version was for a few inches taller than the 2016 model so the new model will be easier to handle. Wheels are optional, and they can be either 16 or 17 inches. Front fascia has also some refreshments but generally it won’t be significantly changed. The cabin faced several modifications, as well. Leather will be found in almost all trim levels of the 2016 Honda CRV. The biggest modification is a new dashboard with improved touch panel. With this touch screen driver is able to control rearview camera, to set up the navigation, and much more. Even though this model is shorter than before it will still have enough room for every passenger.
