Honda CR-V MPG
When you’re looking to invest in a Honda CR-V, mileage is undoubtedly an important factor. Knowing that, we here at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine have put together a little walkthrough of the different engine options you can expect in the CR-V. We’re also reaching out to our drivers in Santa Ana, Mission Viejo, and Tustin, CA. Contact us to learn more.
The CR-V LX Engine
The Honda CR-V LX is the base model, and as such, it comes with a standard gasoline-powered engine. It features an In-Line 1.5-liter 4-Cylinder with a Turbocharger equipped. This engine setup will give you an output of 190 horsepower while also generating 179 lb-ft of torque.
This provides a convenient output in terms of fuel efficiency. When equipped with the standard 2WD, the Honda CR-V achieves an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG across all trims.1 With the AWD, you get extra traction and stability, and fuel economy is still strong, too, with an EPA-estimated 27 city/32 highway MPG.1
The Difference of MPG in Advanced CR-V Trims
The majority of advanced trims share the same gas-powered engine as the base Honda CR-V, leading you to achieve the same kind of stats. However, they do introduce the option to select a Hybrid engine instead, which is a 2.0L 4-cylinder. It generates 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque.
Hybrid trims are paired with the Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT), which also makes a significant impact, achieving an EPA-estimated 40 city/35 highway MPG.1
Factors That Can Impact Your MPG
The type of engine in your Honda CR-V affects MPG, but so does cargo. In general, the more you carry in the CR-V, the more of an effect it has on MPG. Luckily, with mileage this good, you can still bring everything you need on your next road trip.
To make loading up even easier, the vehicle features an easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seat back. A more precise look is that the gas engine offers 39.2 cubic feet of cargo volume and 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. And when you switch to the hybrid option, you’ll get 33.2 cubic feet of cargo volume and a passenger volume of 102.9 cubic feet.
Another factor that affects MPG ratings is keeping your vehicle well maintained. It’s important to get your vehicle serviced regularly, especially when it comes to regular oil changes. The healthier the oil, the longer the miles you’ll go. It’s helpful to check your oil about once a month, but if something’s not quite right, then bring it to our pros for service.
We make it easy to schedule service, whether it’s for preventative maintenance or to fix an issue.
