EPA fuel economy released numbers for the 2017 Honda CR-V. It seems like the new small crossover will have even more fuel efficiency than before. It rolls up to 28/34 mpg city/highway, for a combined 30 mpg with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine.
When its combineded with all-wheel drive and the a190-hp turbo engine that we mentioned before, fuel economy sops to 27/33/29 mpg city/highway/combined, a little. Honda is still offering 2.4-liter four-cylinder on the base LX trim level from last year. That model is rated 26/32/28 mpg with front-wheel drive and 25/31/27 mpg with all-wheel drive.

The new evaluations of fuel economy make the CR-V afore its rivals. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 tops out at 23/30/26 mpg except if you choose for the separate Hybrid model. That model gets 34/30/32 mpg. The CR-V also bests the 2017 Kia Sportage (which goes 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).
Honda’s fifth-generation CR-V runs on the same compact worldwide platform as the Civic. It gets updates in and out. Previous version is 1.5 inches shorter than this one. It has a 1.6-inch longer wheelbase.
Honda started production on the new CR-V in East Liberty, Ohio. In addition to the Ohio factory, CR-Vs will also be produced in two more North American locations: Greensburg, Ind., and Alliston, Ontario. The 2017 Honda CR-V will be on sale this winter.
