Honda has recently started updating their whole lineup – so we have seen new Accord, new Civic and new City. Now, the Japanese manufacturer is about to unveil the brand-new 2016 Honda CRV. This popular crossover is one of the best sellers in its class and it appears that the folks at Honda are quite satisfied, especially when you take in account that they have decided only to release the new 2016 Honda CRV with smaller updates and three new engines, while the next-generation CR-V will bring more changes. According to customer surveys, the CR-V is among the most anticipated crossovers this year.
Exterior of new 2016 CRV Honda
On the outside, the 2016 Honda CRV is not going to bring anything especially new. The Japanese manufacturer decided to make just small changes on some of the parts of the exterior – on the front, the CR-V will get new headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights (headlights should be similar to the ones we have seen on the new Accord and new Civic), new chrome grille which houses the Honda logo and the new bumper with integrated fog lights. On the back, the 2016 Honda CRV will have the same vertical taillights, while the spy shots reveal that the crossover should get a slightly redesigned back door. One important change is that the new CR-V should be slightly shorter than its predecessor, which means that it should be easier to drive around the city. The base version of the 2016 Honda CRV will come with either 16-inch or 17-inch steel wheels, while the alloy wheels are going to be optional.
2016 Honda CRV Interior
There have been more changes in the interior than on the exterior of the 2016 Honda CRV. The Japanese manufacturer wanted the CR-V to have more space inside for passengers, so they have done lots of small changes. Furthermore, there have been some small changes in design, which were done to complement the high quality materials that Honda is going to use for the interior. The revised dashboard now comes in soft touch plastic, 7-inch touch screen display (used for both satellite navigation and infotainment system), cup holders and more cargo space. Leather seats will be available for all trim versions (in the base version it will be optional, while the higher trim levels are going to be offered with leather seats included) as well as the heated and electric front seats.
Engine of new 2016 Honda CRV
The biggest change that the 2016 Honda CRV brings are the three new engines. The smallest engine is the 1.5l turbocharged engine, second is the 1.6l DTEC diesel engine, which will be able to produce 120 horsepower and will do 66 mpg. The third and the most powerful engine is going to be the 2.4l Earth Dreams engine, which is now paired with continuously variable transmission in order to be more fuel efficient.
Honda CRV 2016 Price
The price of the base 2016 Honda CRV should start at $25,000.
2016 Honda CRV Release date
The 2016 Honda CRV should go on sale in December of 2015 in Europe and in January of 2016 in United States.
