If you’re looking for a spacious, fuel-efficient, and capable new crossover, all it should take is a glance at the 2015 Honda CR-V specs for you to realize that Honda’s crossover is the one for you. Available now at a Capital Region Honda Dealer near you, the new CR-V has an updated engine that has managed to give it an even bigger lead over competing models.
There’s also a brand new trim level with high-tech Honda Sensing safety features. Let’s take a look!
The 185-hp 2.4L Four-Cylinder
Have you looked into the CR-V before? If you have, you might be surprised to hear us saying that the 185-hp 2.4L four-cylinder engine under the hood is new for 2015, but we’ve got two important updates to the engine:
- While the horsepower is the same, the torque received a boost up to 181 lb-ft.
- The fuel economy of 2015 CR-V 2WD models was lifted up to 34 highway and 27 city mpg,* making it one of the most fuel-efficient crossovers available.
The CR-V’s 2014 engine was already an impressive powertrain, but Honda is not one to rest on their laurels, which leads to drivers like you reaping the benefits of a more powerful, more fuel-efficient engine during a mid-cycle refresh.
The Touring Trim Level
At the top of the CR-V’s trim levels is something new and exciting: the CR-V Touring. This trim adds on some of the most advanced suites of safety and accident prevention features, including:
- Forward collision warning
- Collision mitigation braking
- Lane keeping assistance
- Lane departure warning
It’s this new trim level that let 2015 CR-V models with forward collision warning earn a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the highest safety award the IIHS has to offer!
Experience the CR-V Firsthand
We only touched on the 2015 Honda CR-V’s specs on the engine, but rest assured that it’s one of the most spacious family vehicles we have to offer. We would just rather show you that spaciousness in person with a test drive; visit a Capital Region Honda Dealer near you to take the new CR-V for a spin. We think you’ll see why so many drivers are choosing it over the competition.
