2016 Honda CR-V

The 2016 Honda CR-V sports the direct-injected Earth Dreams Technology™ i-VTEC® engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT), a new suite of Honda Sensing™ safety and driver assistive features, significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling, and a long list of new standard and available features.

The stylish and versatile 2016 Honda CR-V has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the top score available in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). The CR-V also earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), making it a collision safety leader and standout choice in the SUV market.

“Honda is committed to offering vehicles that deliver advanced safety, fun-to-drive performance and connectivity, with top fuel economy ratings. CR-V is that kind of vehicle,” said Dave Gardner, senior vice president of operations, Honda Canada Inc. "This top government safety rating adds one more appealing and class-leading attribute to the CR-V.”

In receiving the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA, the 2016 CR-V also met the requirements of the agency’s three recommended technologies: RVS-Rear Video System (backup camera), FCW Forward Collision Warning and LDW Lane Departure Warning. 

The 2016 Honda CR-V utilized the latest generation of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, which helps make the CR-V highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal collision crash.

The CR-V was the first Honda vehicle to offer the Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive features that can take action to help avoid a collision or mitigate its severity. Honda Sensing™ is now available on four of Honda’s most popular and top selling models – Civic, Accord, CR-V and Pilot. The Honda Sensing™ suite of technologies includes Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

In addition to the application of Honda’s ACE™ body structure, the 2016 CR-V features a host of standard active and passive safety features and offers many standard and available driver-assistive technologies, such as:
