The New 2015 Honda CR-V Offers Improved Fuel Economy and Tech Features

December 10th, 2014 by

Here at Richards Honda in Baton Rouge, LA, we’re excited to bring local drivers the new 2015 Honda CR-V. For the new model year, Honda has improved fuel economy and added new technology features that should make this best-selling SUV even more popular among our Denham Springs and Baton Rouge communities! How did Honda engineers manage to squeeze more miles per gallon out of the already efficient Honda CR-V? Read on to find out more!

Upgrade Under the Hood

Two major changes under the hood make the CR-V even more efficient for 2015. First, the 2015 Honda CR-V gets a new engine. The new engine is the 2.4L four-cylinder Earth Dreams direct injection engine that also powers the 2015 Honda Accord. This high tech new engine makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque – that’s 10 percent more torque than the previous model.While this engine is both more powerful and more efficient than that of the outgoing model, the Honda CR-V also gets a new continuously variable transmission to help boost fuel economy even more. The EPA gives the new CR-V 29 mpg combined, with 27 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, when equipped with front wheel drive. All wheel drive, meanwhile, adds a bit of weight and drops the rating to 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

New Tech Inside and Out

The 2015 Honda CR-V offers exceptional tech features at all trim levels. Until you stop in for a test drive to see for yourself, here are some of the highlights:

  • Blind spot mirror
  • Full power accessories
  • A rearview camera
  • Keyless entry
  • A rearview camera
  • Cruise control
  • Pandora internet radio
  • Preventative safety features
  • Navigation
  • Rear seat entertainment

You can see that the CR-V can be equipped exactly how you want it!
