CR-V Special Edition

Lots of fantastic things come in dozens: a dozen donuts, a dozen roses, and now a dozen Honda CR-V trims thanks to the addition of the 2016 CR-V Special Edition, or SE.

Squeezing in just above the base CR-V LX, the CR-V SE introduces an exclusive bundle that provides owners with an extra-polished look and enhanced peace of mind. Behind the added shine is the SE’s two-tone finish and larger 17-inch alloys, while rear privacy glass and a standard security system are big draws for safety-minded families and individuals.

Power and Handling

A 185-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine powers the 2016 CR-V, shifting from the new-for-2015 continuously variable transmission standard. Test drivers have applauded the CR-V’s smooth-driving sense, which is achieved through a finely tuned suspension, solid car-inspired platform, and exact steering.

The front-wheel-drive CR-V comes available with all-wheel drive on all trims, making it a strong pick for families after a year-round traveler.

Well-Versed in Versatility

When it comes to the interior, most SUV buyers have four main things on their wish lists: seating for five without size limits, high-quality materials that enhance comfort, good space under the hatch, and entertainment essentials up front.

Wondering why the CR-V is such a hit? It more than overachieves on all of these accounts.

If you’re wary of buying the base model because of a lack of standard features, don’t be—this is the CR-V. You get a Bluetooth connection and text messaging assistant for keeping in touch on your commute, a multi-angle camera with guidelines for help backing up, and a USB port and Pandora compatibility that allow you to stream your favorite music through your CR-V stereo.

In terms of cargo space, the Honda CR-V actually holds the title of one of (if not the) largest capacities in its segment: 35.2 cubic feet with all seats upright that doubles to 70.9 cubic feet when the rear row flips down.

Safety That Takes Center Stage

The 2016 Honda CR-V wouldn’t be the highly recommended ride it is without superior safety features. In addition to the available all-wheel drive and standard rearview monitor mentioned, the 2016 Honda CR-V is stocked with active and passive systems that spring into action the instant they’re needed. One of these is Honda LaneWatch, available on trims EX and above.

The Incomparable 2016 CR-V

From its new Special Edition trim that provides a high-end package at a great price to the continuation of its considerable accomplishments in the crossover realm, the 2016 Honda CR-V is an SUV you won’t want to leave off your test drive list.
