The Best Gas Mileage SUVs Near Hampton Roads


The days of the gas-guzzling sport utility vehicle are over, and some of the best gas mileage SUVs have the same shining “H” on the front. Honda’s three crossover SUVs all have something unique to offer Hampton Roads drivers, but they also have quite a bit in common. To begin with, their fuel economy numbers put competing crossovers to shame.

Let’s take a closer look at the HR-V, CR-V, and Pilot before you take advantage of our current financing offers and drive one home.

2016 Honda HR-V

2016 Honda HR-V

The newest model in the Honda lineup, the 2016 Honda HR-V is the first model year of the new compact crossover, and we hope that by its compact crossover name, you already know it will be one of the most fuel-efficient family vehicles on the market. A 4-cylinder engine delivers power and efficiency, and each of the available trim levels can be had with all-wheel drive.

2016 Honda HR-V Engine

Under the hood of a 2016 HR-V is a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine capable of 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque.

The pep of the engine is paired to the best fuel economy numbers of any of our SUVs; a 2016 Honda HR-V 2WD equipped with the available continuously variable transmission is rated at an EPA-estimated 35 highway and 28 city mpg.*

Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive can be added onto the HR-V as well, helping you if you hit a patch of snow or ice or find yourself heading off-road. Don’t worry about the fuel economy; unlike bigger SUVs, the HR-V barely notices the extra power needed for AWD. 2016 HR-V AWD models with CVT earn EPA-estimated 32 mpg highway and 27 mpg city fuel economies.*

In addition to being one of the best gas mileage SUVs available, the new HR-V has a suite of advanced tech features that come standard on the basic LX trim. Amenities like remote entry, Bluetooth for phone and audio, a multi-angle rearview camera, and the Honda Magic Seat would often cost more on competing models, but they are all standard here.

2016 Honda CR-V

The CR-V kicked off the crossover revolution in the 1990s, and it’s been leading the pack ever since. The 2016 Honda CR-V takes what drivers loved about that original model—its practicality, its versatility, and its affordability—and brings them up to modern standards. That means high-tech features, advanced safety technology, improved power and fuel economy, and just enough towing capabilities for when you need to haul something extra-large.

First, the engine specs that make this one of the best gas mileage SUVs:

2015 Honda CR-V

A 2016 Honda CR-V features a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine capable of 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. If you need to tow, the CR-V can handle as much as 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.

2016 Honda CR-V

The fuel economy of the CR-V has improved year after year, and each 2016 2WD model is rated at an EPA-estimated 33 highway and 26 city mpg.*

2016 Honda CR-V

If you want the confidence of all-wheel drive, you can find it on any of the CR-V’s five trims. 2016 CR-V AWD models have nearly identical fuel economies at 31 highway and 25 city mpg.*

The Bluetooth, multi-angle rearview camera, and high-res display screen of the HR-V are on the CR-V as well. At the top Touring trim level, you’ll find brand-new Honda Sensing driver assistance and safety features, and they are so impressive that the 2016 CR-V Touring earned the 2016 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS.**

2016 Honda Pilot

Like the story of Goldilocks, the CR-V is the middle crossover that some drivers would say is “just right,” but some need the smaller and sportier HR-V. And others need the full-size 2016 Honda Pilot, capable of seating as many as eight passengers. With five trim levels and your choice of front- or all-wheel drive, the Pilot is one of the most popular family vehicles in the Hampton Roads area.

There’s no one thing that draws drivers to the Pilot, but its engine specs help make it one of the best gas mileage SUVs. So let’s start there.

2016 Honda Pilot

2016 Pilot 2WD LX models have earned an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway as well as 19 mpg in the city.*

2016 Honda Pilot

Looking for the added confidence of all-wheel drive? A 2016 Pilot AWD LX has an EPA-estimated 26 mpg on the highway as well as 18 mpg in the city.*

2016 Honda Pilot

A 280-hp 3.5L V6 engine powers both Pilot 2WD and AWD models, and it kicks out 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Put that power to work by towing 3,500 pounds on 2WD models and 5,000 pounds on AWD models.

The Honda Sensing suite of safety features can be added onto EX and EX-L trims, coming standard on Touring and Elite trims. Any 2016 Honda Pilot with Honda Sensing has earned a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.** And when it comes to features, expect the same level of tech as the HR-V and the CR-V.
