Honda CR-V Performance

If you’re a resident of Abington, Willow Grove, or Glenside, PA, check out the 2021 Honda CR-V performance, so you can determine if this SUV is a good fit for you. This SUV is a great choice for families who need an off-road-capable vehicle, as well as those who simply want a larger vehicle to keep up with their active lifestyle.

The Honda of Abington team has done the heavy lifting for you and compiled the most relevant information about the Honda CR-V performance below.


Honda CR-V HorsepowerOn the 2021 Honda CR-V, you’ll find a standard in-line 4-cylinder engine with a turbocharger, which can:

  • Achieve up to 190 horsepower
  • Achieve up to 179 lb-ft of torque
  • Tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped

This capable engine is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which helps it change gears smoothly and efficiently. So, you’ll barely feel the gears adjusting as you accelerate or switch from highway to off-road driving.

Moreover, if you want to increase your off-roading capability, you can equip the available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. This system optimizes traction by automatically sending the right amount of power to the back and front wheels. It also distributes torque as needed to help you get out of muddy, wet, and slippery conditions.

Fuel Economy

Not only is the 2021 Honda CR-V capable of tackling all your adventures with you, but it also offers great fuel economy to go along with it. Whether you stick with the standard 2WD or upgrade to the available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, you’ll be able to enjoy miles of fun with your CR-V before needing to make a pit-stop.

Let’s take a closer look at this SUV’s fuel economy:

Honda CR-V ExteriorEven though you’ll be driving a capable and strong SUV, the Honda CR-V balances performance with fuel efficiency, so you can make the most of your vehicle. Besides the CVT to help optimize engine power, the following engineering features also work to increase fuel usage:

  • Idle-Stop
  • Eco Assist™ System
  • Active Shutter Grille

These features function to improve the way the engine uses fuel and reduce the amount needed to work at its peak.

Off-Road-Ready Exterior

Although everything under the hood is important for performance, the exterior design also makes an impact on how well your CR-V will do on the road. For example, this SUV has a 7.8-inch ground clearance when equipped with 2WD, and an 8.2-inch ground clearance when equipped with AWD. This means that you’ll be able to easily drive over obstacles up to 7.8 or 8.2 inches.

Moreover, the design of the CR-V allows you to go over and down hills with confidence, thanks to these approach and departure angles:

Combining these exterior design features with the capable engine results in the CR-V’s solid performance, whether you’re driving through the wilderness or tackling your weekend errands.
