2016 Honda CR V Overview

Data provided by Edmunds

The extremely popular 2016 Honda CR-V is one of the best compact crossovers on the market. After a significant refresh in 2015, the 2016 model is largely unchanged.

While not the most thrilling vehicles on the planet, small crossovers offer a lot of functionality at an attractive price. They give a commanding view of the road thanks to their elevated ride height and easily accommodate four occupants and their luggage. Their engines are typically small and modestly powered, but fuel-efficient. As long as you're not looking for a spirited driving experience, few vehicles are as well-rounded and practical. Among this group, the 2016 Honda CR-V is one of the best. Everyday usability is the driving force behind the CR-V's interior design. The wide doors allow for easy ingress and egress, and head- and legroom are ample for front and outboard rear passengers. A passenger sitting in the rear middle seat will also appreciate the lack of a protruding transmission tunnel that would otherwise necessitate an uncomfortable seating position. Farther back, the CR-V's cargo area is vast, with 37.2 cubic feet of space ready to swallow just about anything you want throw back there. Pull the trunk-mounted levers and the spring-loaded rear seats fold down immediately, nearly doubling the CR-V's cargo capacity. Honda also offers a long list of available safety and comfort features for shoppers wanting a little extra. A sunroof, keyless ignition and entry and heated front seats are standard equipment about halfway up the CR-V's hierarchy of trim levels. Also included on that trim (EX) is a trick passenger-side-mounted camera that reduces the blind spot by displaying a wide-angle picture on the central touchscreen when the right blinker is turned on. Those looking for additional safety features may want to consider the top-tier CR-V Touring, which adds lane-keeping assist and automatic braking when the CR-V senses an impending forward collision. As much as we like the 2016 Honda CR-V, we still suggest checking out at least a few of the other top models in this segment. The popular 2016 Toyota RAV4 gets a face-lift this year to counter the CR-V's redesign in 2015. Both can come off as a little bland, though, so if you're looking for a crossover with a bit more personality, the 2016 Ford Escape and 2016 Mazda CX-5 are more athletic and fun to drive, while the Escape, 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, 2016 Jeep Cherokee and 2016 Subaru Forester all offer more powerful optional engines. But when you factor in the stuff that most people desire most — practicality, fuel economy, usability, interior space and safety — the 2016 CR-V is tough to beat.

Are you just looking for a "set it and forget it" type of vehicle, one that's coolly competent across the board? The Honda CR-V feels instantly familiar when you get behind the wheel, and it's packed with features designed to make your life easier. Read more to learn what else we like about the highly popular CR-V.

A new Special Edition (SE) trim debuts, adding 17-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass and a security system to the base LX. Otherwise, the 2016 CR-V is unchanged.

Catch Review

I am thoroughly pleased with my new 2016 CRV. This is my 4th CRV. I have been purchasing and trading my CRV's with colonial Honda since 2004. Colonial Honda is worth the drive for the value and comfort of their automobiles. I highly recommend Colonial Honda for all your automobile needs!

Honda #6!

This is my second CR-V; I traded in a '13 for a '16. There is a lot of the same interior features as the '13, yet the '16 has a lot more electronic features, such as the radio display, updated cameras (and adding the left sided lane assist camera), and usb/hdmi ports. The rear seat compartment now has it's own temperature controls. There is no engine vibration as seen in the '15 model. The road noise is also much quieter than my '13. Honda just does it again, but better, and I'm a Honda lover for life!

Perfect as kids get older!

I traded in our Pilot for this, after our three kids were completely out of the car seat/booster stage. I LOVE it! Fuel economy is SO much better, and the updated technology is terrific.

Second CR-V

This is my second CR-V. I traded my 2008 in for a 2016 CR-V Touring. I love the upgrade. This model is must quieter than my previous CR-V. The cargo area is larger and there is more leg room in the backseat. I love this car and am very pleased with my purchase. Honda is a quality, dependable vehicle.

2016 Honda CR-V Touring

Love this vehicle. Very quiet ride, good interior space and "peppy" engine. I am 5' 2" short and the seats adjust well, except for the head rest which has no adjustment. The on screen computer/navigation system doesn't seem to be very intuitive. Sound system is pretty good. I do like the keyless entry and automatic trunk open and close. Insurance Institute for highway safety rated this vehicle as "Good" (highest rating) along with a great resale value. I traded in my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer for this vehicle and other than the size and weight difference I am very pleased with this vehicle.

CRV is FABULOUS

If you want a comfortable, high MPG SUV get a CRV. I am getting over 30mpg overall. This is great since i had held off on getting a SUV because of mpg concerns. My 2016 CRV has a smooth ride and performs very well in wet conditions. I am extremely happy to be a CRV owner !!! Thank you Honda for making a fabulous small SUV!!!!!

2016 CRV Touring, Nice ride and it has a CD player

It is more roomy than several that i looked at, including RAV4. The navagation is more complicated in the 2016 than the 2017 CRV. The 2016 CRV has a CD player which I definitely wanted and many of the newer models do not. It has a quality sound when you shut the doors. I'm not sure if I will use all the tech features but many seem to be helpful to have. It just may take me a while to learn how to use them safely.

Gasoline fumes in the passenger cabin

I leased my 2016 CRV in August of 2016. By November 2016, my husband and I began to smell gasoline fumes that would overwhelm the passanger cabin while the car was idling. Honda has admitted that it is a known problem with the 2016 CRV models. PLEASE do some research before leasing or buying. My car has now been at the dealership for FOUR WEEKS without a fix. I am paying for a car that I cannot safely drive. Prolonged exposure to gasoline fumes can lead to a variety of medical issues. With a one year old son, I refuse to allow him to be exposed to the fumes. I hope no one else has to experience the stress that buying a 2016 CRV has caused on my family.

Fun to Drive 2016 CR-V AWD

Fun to drive, and a cinch to park. Cargo area is well-thought out. Exterior is beautiful. Interior is not as luxurious and well-appointed as the Accord. Although this is a SUV, for the price points I think more could be done with the interior design. Having to manually open the hatch is annoying, but I think they took care of that with the 2017 models.

Hit

I was hit by another car in the back of the car. This car held up well. The seat belt and lumbar seats held my body tight. I am waiting for whiplash pain. After 24 hours, I still feel well. I recommend this car.

2016 Honda CR-V Review

From Edmunds.com

The extremely popular 2016 Honda CR-V is one of the best compact crossovers on the market. After a significant refresh in 2015, the 2016 model is largely unchanged.

While not the most thrilling vehicles on the planet, small crossovers offer a lot of functionality at an attractive price. They give a commanding view of the road thanks to their elevated ride height and easily accommodate four occupants and their luggage. Their engines are typically small and modestly powered, but fuel-efficient. As long as you're not looking for a spirited driving experience, few vehicles are as well-rounded and practical. Among this group, the 2016 Honda CR-V is one of the best.

Everyday usability is the driving force behind the CR-V's interior design. The wide doors allow for easy ingress and egress, and head- and legroom are ample for front and outboard rear passengers. A passenger sitting in the rear middle seat will also appreciate the lack of a protruding transmission tunnel that would otherwise necessitate an uncomfortable seating position. Farther back, the CR-V's cargo area is vast, with 37.2 cubic feet of space ready to swallow just about anything you want throw back there. Pull the trunk-mounted levers and the spring-loaded rear seats fold down immediately, nearly doubling the CR-V's cargo capacity.

Honda also offers a long list of available safety and comfort features for shoppers wanting a little extra. A sunroof, keyless ignition and entry and heated front seats are standard equipment about halfway up the CR-V's hierarchy of trim levels. Also included on that trim (EX) is a trick passenger-side-mounted camera that reduces the blind spot by displaying a wide-angle picture on the central touchscreen when the right blinker is turned on. Those looking for additional safety features may want to consider the top-tier CR-V Touring, which adds lane-keeping assist and automatic braking when the CR-V senses an impending forward collision.

As much as we like the 2016 Honda CR-V, we still suggest checking out at least a few of the other top models in this segment. The popular 2016 Toyota RAV4 gets a face-lift this year to counter the CR-V's redesign in 2015. Both can come off as a little bland, though, so if you're looking for a crossover with a bit more personality, the 2016 Ford Escape and 2016 Mazda CX-5 are more athletic and fun to drive, while the Escape, 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, 2016 Jeep Cherokee and 2016 Subaru Forester all offer more powerful optional engines. But when you factor in the stuff that most people desire most — practicality, fuel economy, usability, interior space and safety — the 2016 CR-V is tough to beat.
