Honda has released the following information concerning the 2016 CR-V, with a new Special Edition (SE) Trim Level. Following the release, we have an interior/exterior color chart which we put together based upon some information that we received last week from an anonymous source.

America's Best Selling SUV Continues Market Leadership with Introduction of New Special Edition 2016 Honda CR-V

Coming off a year of record sales and numerous industry accolades, the exceptionally well received Honda CR-V returns for 2016 with a Special Edition trim offering exterior and security upgrades over LX

Oct 6, 2015 - TORRANCE, Calif.
After a major refresh for 2015 that brought a new powertrain, significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling and a long list of new standard and available features, the 2016 Honda CR-V returns with a new Special Edition (SE) trim and a lineup with a starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $23,595.1

The new Special Edition CR-V is positioned above the LX trim by adding larger 17-inch alloy wheels with an exclusive two tone finish, second-row and rear privacy glass, and security system. With only an $800 premium over the LX, the SE represents a high-value proposition for the premium look and additional feature content.

In addition to the highly prestigious Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year honor, the refreshed 2015 CR-V garnered numerous industry accolades. These include:
  • 2015 ALG Residual Value Award: Best Compact Utility
  • 2015 Kelly Blue Book Best Buy: Small SUV/Crossover
  • Kelly Blue Book 2015 Top 10 Best Resale Value award
  • U.S. News & World Report, 2015 Best Cars for Families, compact sport utility vehicle award
  • Cars.com/USA Today/"Motorweek" 2015 Compact SUV Challenge winner
  • Parents magazine and Edmunds.com 10 Best Family Cars for 2015, best crossover
  • AutoPacific 2015 Vehicle Satisfaction Award

The CR-V is a perennial favorite of American car buyers and at nearly 3.5 million units sold since its introduction in 1997, it is the segment's best-selling model of all time2. In fact, CR-V is the best-selling SUV over the past two decades3. Since its introduction in October 2014 the refreshed 2015 CR-V has been on a record breaking sales run with nine of the last 12 months being best individual sales months for the model and August ranking as CR-V's all-time best month with sales of almost 35,000 units. The 2015 model also contributed to the best ever annual sales of over 335,000 CR-Vs sold in 2014. With year-to-date sales through September 2015 far surpassing the same period a year ago, CR-V is poised to set another all-time annual sales record and is on its way to six straight years of sales growth and four straight years of record-setting annual sales. Moreover, CR-V is the best-selling SUV in America to millennial buyers4.

The new Special Edition (SE) trim is positioned between the LX and the EX and is available in front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) versions. Together with the top-of-the-line Touring version introduced last year that includes the Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, CR-V is now available in 12 trim/wheel drive versions. View, build and price a 2016 Honda CR-V at automobiles.honda.com/cr-v.

Display Audio
CR-V includes the 7-inch capacitive touchscreen Display Audio telematics interface. Display Audio, standard on EX and above trim levels, allows the user to tap, pinch, and swipe – just like on a smart phone or tablet – to control audio and other telematics features, including the available next-generation HondaLink™6 and the Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System™7. All CR-Vs include the full-color "intelligent" Multi-Information Display (i-MID) that offers a range of customizable features via fingertip controls on the steering wheel. The CR-V's audio and telematics systems offer a high level of connectivity, including a standard Pandora®8 interface and SMS text messaging function, Bluetooth®9 HandsFreeLink® phone interface.

The 2016 CR-V is powered by an Earth Dreams™ Technology 2.4-liter direct-injected DOHC i-VTEC inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower10 and 181 lb-ft of torque11. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides smooth, seamless ratio changes and helped the CR-V receive EPA fuel economy ratings of 26/33/29 mpg5 (city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive and 25/31/27 mpg5 for the Real Time AWD models.

Utilizing optimally tuned front MacPherson strut front and a rear multi-link suspension and features such as Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)12 and Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS), the 2016 CR-V provides a car-like driving experience, which is enhanced further on the SE and above trims with wider front and rear track dimensions due to wider wheels. The rear multi-link system helps maximize rear seating and cargo space while providing stable and comfortable handling and ride quality. High-capacity shock absorbers help deliver a refined driving feel.

The CR-V's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) front body structure helps make the CR-V highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal collision crash. Additional standard safety equipment on all models include Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) electronic stability control system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist, frontal airbags, side-curtain airbags, SmartVent® front-side airbags and a front seat design that can help reduce the severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision. The available Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive features includes Honda LaneWatch™, Forward Collision Warning (FCW)13, Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)14, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)15 and Lane Departure Warning (LDW)16. The 2016 CR-V is targeted to achieve top safety ratings, including a TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA.
