2016 Honda CR-V in Special Edition guise

2016 Honda CR-V front 3/4 After major updates for the year, the Honda CR-V now receives a Special Edition guise and a whole new attitude for the U.S. market. The new Special Edition CR-V is positioned above the LX trim with larger, two-tone 17-inch alloy wheels, 2nd/3rd row privacy glass and the latest security system.

In the U.S. alone, the Honda CR-V has been a perennial favorite among the Americans, with an approximate 3.5 million units and counting in sales since its 1997 debut. The CR-V is an obvious best selling variant and has topped the segment over the past two decades.

With the arrival of the updated CR-V, the sales record continues to go up; the CR-V tallied 35,000 units in August and hit chart topping numbers in nine of the last 12 months. In 2014, the CR-V accounted for 335,000 units, and the trend’s looking for Honda in the United States.

The CR-V in Special Edition trim is positioned between the LX and EX versions; available in front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD). Together with the top-of-the-line Touring version introduced last year that includes the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist technologies, the CR-V is now available in 12 trim levels. Interior amenities included are; the 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with telematics like HondaLink and Satellite-linked Navigation (depending on versions), full-color Intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID), switches on steering and more.

The 2016 CR-V is powered by a  2.4-liter direct-injected DOHC i-VTEC inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 245 Nm (181 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for dependable fuel economy at 8.11 l/100km (29 mpg) front-wheel and 8.7l/100km (27 mpg) AWD versions; both on combined ratios.

All driver assistance systems and safety features are intact for the current CR-V Special Edition. The 2016 CR-V  is tagged at USD 23,595 onwards, which works out to be USD 800 more than the CR-V LX version.
