Honda CR-V Horsepower and Torque

The Honda CR-V has earned a reputation as one of the industry’s most well-rounded crossover SUVs, and that’s certainly true of performance. You can count on sharp acceleration when navigating busy Milwaukee streets, authoritative cruising power when you’re on the highway, and plenty of power beneath the hood for light off-roading. When properly equipped, the Honda CR-V’s generous engine specs allow you to tow up to 1,500 lbs.

That all-around mastery comes via one of two engine setups:

  • 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder: Comes as standard for up to 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.
  • 4-Cylinder with Single-Scroll Turbocharger: The available upgraded engine makes up to 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque.

Honda CR-V Fuel Economy

As noted by the team at Kelley Blue Book: “Honda’s excellent continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) handles power distribution for both engines and even simulates stepped gear changes for a more traditional feel.” It includes Sport Mode for more direct performance as and when you need it, and mpg ratings remain strong across all configurations:

  • Standard 2.4L 4-Cylinder: Makes up to an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway in 2WD or 25 and 31 with available AWD*.
  • 2.4L 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger: Makes up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway in 2WD or 27 and 33 with available AWD*.

The Honda CR-V represents a rare middle-ground between zesty performance and thrifty fuel consumption, and each model comes as standard with an Eco Assist™ System that coaches you into more eco-friendly driving habits.

Honda CR-V Performance Features

For those who like to head off the beaten path or drive through rain and snow without worrying about losing control, the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ is available across all 2019 Honda CR-V trim levels. Intelligently distributing power delivery between all four wheels, Honda’s advanced AWD system maintains flawless traction regardless of the surface you’re covering.


Further performance features include:

  • Sophisticated Suspension: The Honda CR-V utilizes MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link double wishbone rear suspension for a quiet and composed ride.
  • Front and Rear Stabilizer Bars: Stabilizer bars are fitted across the body to maintain torsional rigidity and prevent body roll.
  • 18 in Alloy Wheels: Fitted with All-Season Tires to cover spring, summer, fall, and winter with unwavering confidence.
  • Power-Assisted Brakes: Delivers added friction for superior stopping ability and low-speed control.
  • High Ground Clearance: With 7.8 inches of ground clearance in 2WD or 8.2 with AWD, the Honda CR-V can cover unpaved roads without getting stuck.


Honda CR-V Active Safety Features

Active safety features are responsible for ensuring your Honda CR-V is never involved in an accident, and they accomplish that goal by working to maintain control at all times.


As such, an advanced set of active safety features can noticeably sharpen performance, and the Honda CR-V equips the following as standard:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Monitors your drive, actively applying the brakes and adjusting throttle response to maintain control.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Distributes braking energy between all four wheels for smarter deceleration.
  • Brake Assist: When an emergency braking situation is sensed, the Honda CR-V will apply added pressure to bring you to a stop faster.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Having too much or too little air in your tires can reduce performance, so the Honda CR-V lets you know when they require attention.
