The Versatile 2016 Honda CR-V



Looking for a new 2016 crossover? The 2016 Honda CR-V is all about usability and functionality, making the CR-V one of the best crossovers on the market. Honda now offers five trim packages for the 2016 CR-V, including the all-new SE trim, to make the 2016 CR-V perfect for anyone looking for a feature-packed crossover SUV! Keep reading to learn more about the top three Honda CR-V packages for 2016!

The 2016 CR-V base model is the LX ($23,745 MSRP), which comes packed with standard features, including 16-inch wheels, full-power accessories, cruise control, adjustable driver’s seat, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, four-speaker sound system and a rearview camera, making the 2016 CR-V LX one of the best crossovers on the market, even for the most budget-conscious shoppers. The LX comes in both 2WD and 4WD ($25,045 MSRP) models. If you’re in the market for a great crossover under $25,000, the 2016 CR-V LX is the perfect choice. Most buyers can easily get into the 4WD version of the LX for under $25,000 after rebates and incentives!

The newest trim package in the 2016 lineup is the CR-V SE ($24,545), but only gets you upgraded wheels (17-inch alloy), rear privacy glass and a security system. Buyers may be better off making the jump to the EX trim package ($25.995), instead, which includes everything on the LX and SE, but also includes automatic headlights with LED daytime running lights, fog lights, retractable cargo cover, sunroof, eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, keyless entry and ignition, a LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system (with camera), 7-inch touchscreen display with HondaLink smartphone integration and six-speaker sound system, all for just slightly more than you’d pay for the SE trim package, easily earning the 2016 CR-V EX a spot in our top three list.

Likewise, the CR-V EX-L ($28,445) gets you a few new features, such as roof rails, heated side mirrors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, and auto-dimming rearview mirror, but you’ll get all of that with the CR-V Touring trim package ($32,095 MSRP), along with 18-inch wheels, power liftgate, adaptive cruise control, lane assist, projector beam headlights, forward collision mitigation system (with automatic braking), a lane departure warning system, navigation system, HD radio and driver seat memory settings, making the Touring a much better value for your money. For those who do choose to go with the CR-V EX-L, however, the navigation system with HD radio is available as an add-on. No other factory options are available on the CR-V.

Regardless of which trim package you choose, you’ll enjoy Honda’s award-winning design and performance at a price that’s affordable to most people on the market for a new crossover SUV in 2016. With comfortable seating for five, a choice between 4WD and 2WD, a spacious 70.9 to 104.1 (Touring trim) cubic feet of cargo space, an impressive EPA-estimated 27 mpg combined and a five-star safety rating, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better vehicle on the market in 2016! Now the only question is, which trim package will you choose?
