Honda CR-V Horsepower and Torque

The previously standard 2019 Honda CR-V engine has been replaced by a 1.5L In-Line 16-Valve DOHC 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger across the trim level lineup, so every model now commands:

  • Up to 190 hp
  • Up to 179 lb-ft of torque

That’s power enough for dodging traffic in the city, accelerating into the fast lane on the highway, and everything in between. Edmunds tracked it making 0 to 60 mph in a quick 7.5 seconds. In their own words: “The CR-V strikes an admirable balance between handling and ride quality. Midcorner bumps and other road irregularities don’t upset it, and you can confidently snake up a curvy road without sickening your passengers.”

Even while you’re enjoying a commanding ride, Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) ensures a whisper-quiet experience from your driver’s seat. When you need to haul cargo behind, the Honda CR-V towing capacity rises up to 1,500 lbs. to have you covered.

Honda CR-V Fuel Economy

The Honda CR-V manages to balance exhilarating performance with strong efficiency scores in a way few other compact crossovers approach. All models feature a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode to combine the fuel-sipping performance of a manual transmission with the effortless nature of automatic, so expect to make:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway with 2WD models*
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway with AWD models*

Efficiency features include:

  • Idle-Stop: The Honda CR-V automatically shuts down its engine when you’re at standstill and instantly starts up again when you hit the gas.
  • Eco Assist™ System: Visual feedback shows how your driving behavior impacts fuel consumption and coaches you into more efficient performance over time.

Honda CR-V Performance Features

A Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ is available across all Honda CR-V trims to provide enhanced control and confidence through a wide variety of conditions. Electronically activated, it sends power to the rear wheels proactively to avoid traction loss and enhance turning precision.

Further Honda CR-V performance features include:

  • MacPherson Strut Front Suspension
  • Multi-Link Double Wishbone Rear Suspension
  • Variable Ratio Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS)
  • Front and Rear Stabilizer Bars
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc Brakes:
  • All-Season Tires

    Honda CR-V Active Safety Features

    The Honda CR-V is prized for its high safety ratings as well as its precision performance, and many of its safety features keep you from harm by controlling your ride. Such features include:

    • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Tracks performance and adjusts your driving dynamics to prevent oversteer and understeer for flawless command at all times.
    • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Intelligently splits braking power between all four wheels for added peace of mind when you need to decelerate.
    • Brake Assist: The Honda CR-V can sense an emergency braking situation and automatically provide addition braking force to bring you to a stop sooner.
    • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Having either too much or too little air in your tires can impact performance, so the CR-V lets you know when adjustments need to be made.
