2015 Honda CR-V

There are a lot of different things you need in a family-friendly crossover, but fuel efficiency is one of the most important. That’s why we’re proud to say that the 2015 Honda CR-V mpg ratings have bested so many competing crossovers now that Honda has upgraded the vehicle’s engine for the new model year. Would you believe that the CR-V 2WD is more efficient than competing crossover from Hyundai, Toyota, and Nissan?

Let’s take a look at the numbers for these crossovers.

The Best and the Rest

The 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD earns an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg,* making it one of the most fuel efficient crossovers on the road. Believe it or not, it is also one of the most powerful with 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. To put it all in perspective, here are three of the most popular competing crossovers:

  • 2015 Toyota RAV4 LE: Toyota’s famous RAV4 was once one of the CR-V’s toughest competitors, but the new Honda engine is changing everything. The RAV4 is only rated at 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque and its fuel efficiency comes in at 31 highway and 24 city mpg.
  • 2015 Nissan Rogue S: Nissan’s crossover comes closest to the CR-V but still falls short with 170 hp, 175 lb-ft of torque, 33 highway mpg, and 26 city mpg.
  • 2015 Hyundai Tucson GLS: And the worst of the bunch, the Tucson’s engine is rated at 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque while only managing 29 highway and 23 city mpg.

We think it’s no coincidence that the 2015 Honda CR-V took home the Motor Trend Sport/Utility Vehicle of the Year award for 2015, especially when you see how Honda’s crossover sets itself apart with high-tech standard features (like Bluetooth, a rearview camera, and touchscreen interface).
