The LX model comes standard with the 2.4L 4-Cylinder engine you are probably already familiar with, producing 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque while offering MPG ratings up to 26 city/32 hwy/28 combined[1]. The EX, EX-L, and Touring models will come standard with the new 1.5L Turo 4-Cylinder engine producing 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque while offering MPG ratings up to 28 city/34 hwy/30 combined [1]. This is the second year in a row a turbocharged engine has been offered in the CR-V. The advantage of turbo-charging is quite a treat – the exhaust gases compress the air going into the motor, which allows the fuel to burn more efficiently. The available 1.5L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder Engine will give you a compact SUV with the heart of a sports car.
