2017 Honda CR-V Bests Its Rivals in Fuel Economy

EPA fuel economy numbers have been released for the 2017 Honda CR-V, and it looks like the new small crossover will be even more fuel-efficient than before. It achieves up to 28/34 mpg city/highway, for a combined 30 mpg with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine.

When paired with all-wheel drive and the aforementioned 190-hp turbo engine, fuel economy dips just slightly to 27/33/29 mpg city/highway/combined. Honda will still offer last year’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder on the base LX trim level, and that model is rated 26/32/28 mpg with front-wheel drive and 25/31/27 mpg with all-wheel drive.

The new fuel economy ratings put the CR-V ahead of its competitors. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 tops out at 23/30/26 mpg unless you opt for the separate Hybrid model, which nets 34/30/32 mpg. The CR-V also bests the 2017 Kia Sportage (which achieves up to 23/30/26 mpg), 2017 Subaru Forester (26/32/28), 2017 Nissan Rogue (26/33/29), 2017 Ford Escape (23/30/26), and the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox (21/31/25).

2017 Honda CR V at Ohio Plant

Honda’s fifth-generation CR-V rides on the same compact global platform as the Civic, and receives updates inside and out. It’s 1.5 inches longer than the previous version, an inch taller, and has a 1.6-inch longer wheelbase.

Honda has begun production on the new CR-V in East Liberty, Ohio. In addition to the Ohio plant, CR-Vs will also be made in two other North American locations: Greensburg, Ind., and Alliston, Ontario. The 2017 Honda CR-V goes on sale this winter.
