Since the CR-V hit the streets of New England decades ago, it has been giving drivers one of the best options in affordable SUVs, and the 2016 Honda CR-V continues that legacy. With seating for up to five and as much as 104.1 cubic feet of passenger space, the CR-V is one of the roomiest crossover SUVs on the road. And with the 2016 CR-V LX 2WD model starting at just $23,595 (MSRP),* it’s one of the most affordable routes to a versatile and powerful new family vehicle.
If the CR-V were just affordable, we could understand a driver debating whether or not to take it for a test drive. But Honda’s crossover is also one of the best-equipped vehicles in its class, with the LX trim featuring:
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio streaming
Multi-angle rearview camera system for confident backing up and parking
Pandora Internet Radio and SMS text messaging capabilities
Easy fold 60/40 split rear seat
Eco Assist and ECON button for more efficient driving
Under the hood of each CR-V is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and 2016 CR-V 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated 33 highway and 26 city mpg.**
New for the 2016 model year, the HR-V is a bold direction for the SUV world, bridging the gap between midsize sedan and crossover. This compact crossover still seats five like the CR-V, but it trades some of the CR-V’s size for a bit of maneuverability and a more affordable price.
With three trim levels and your choice of two- or all-wheel drive on each, there are plenty of HR-V options to choose from. We think the affordable, entry-level 2016 HR-V LX 2WD with 6MT has plenty to offer the average driver while remaining distinctly affordable, starting at just $19,115 (MSRP).*
Features on the HR-V LX include:
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
Multi-angle rearview camera with top-down, wide-angle, and standard views
USB audio interface and 5-inch color LCD screen
60/40 split-folding rear Magic Seat
If you need more features, the EX and EX-L trims upgrade the tech and luxury amenities, respectively. The HR-V stays affordable with every trip to the pump, too; each 2016 HR-V 2WD CVT model earns an EPA-estimated 35 highway and 28 city mpg.**
We think the best way to find out which of these affordable SUVs is right for you is to visit a New England Honda Dealer and take a test drive. Don’t forget that if you need more space than these five-person crossovers can offer, we also have the 2016 Honda Pilot, priced competitively with eight-person SUVs and minivans.
