Honda CR-V MPG and Engine Specs

The first thing to look at when considering the CR-V fuel economy is the engine. This model actually gives you a lot of choice with two different powertrains to pick from:

  • 2.4L I-4

The 2.4L engine generates 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. Standard on the LX trim, it also gets an EPA-estimated MPG rating of 26 MPG city and 32 MPG highway with front-wheel drive (FWD) and an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city and 31 MPG highway with all-wheel drive (AWD).1

This powertrain comes standard only on the LX trim level.

  • 1.5L Turbo I-4

The 1.5L Turbo engine comes standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels and gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 MPG city and 34 MPG highway with FWD and an EPA-estimated 27 MPG city and 33 MPG highway with AWD.1

It produces an exciting 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.

Transmission and the 2019 CR-V MPG

One of the reasons why the Honda CR-V is able to get such impressive MPG ratings is because it pairs both powertrains with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The CVT generally enhances fuel efficiency by doing away with the set shift points you'd find in a traditional automatic transmission. Instead, it allows for nearly infinite shifts between the upper and lower limits.

While this helps improve efficiency, it also features a Sport Mode that can give an extra boost of adrenaline to your everyday drives. Sport Mode improves acceleration and overtaking as well as steering responsiveness.

Honda CR-V Handling and Drivetrain Options

There's one other thing to consider when looking at the MPG capabilities of the Honda CR-V: the drivetrain.

All trim levels of the CR-V come standard with FWD. This is a more lightweight drivetrain that often results in a higher fuel economy than AWD. If your main focus is on MPG, then you may prefer an SUV with FWD.

However, drivers in our area often have a strong tendency toward the AWD system. The smart system on the Honda CR-V actively monitors your driving conditions and automatically redistributes torque as necessary between all four wheels to help enhance traction control.

This can help you keep a firm grip on the road when driving through spring rain or a winter snowstorm. The AWD system tends to have a lower fuel economy, but the difference is slight, as you can see in the table above.
