2016 Honda CR-V vs 2015 Honda CR-V interior

Well, this is a tough one. And that's not because we can't think of enough to say about the 2016 Honda CR-V. We've got lots to say about what makes the Honda CR-V a best-seller. It's incredibly spacious, and incredibly versatile, thanks to its clever easy-to-fold seats. Its 2.4L I-4 engine, coupled with a CVT, gives it plenty of power to accelerate briskly even it's when fully loaded up, while maintaining up to an impressive 33 MPG on the highway to boot. [1] It comes with a standard rearview camera, and Honda's LaneWatch blind spot camera is standard on all but the base LX trim. The high-end Touring trim adds lots more, including a power tailgate, larger 18-inch wheels, and the full Honda Sensing package of driver assistance safety tech, including lane-departure warnings and lane-keeping assist, forward collision warning, and adaptive cruise control.  

What makes this a tough comparison, though, is that the 2015 Honda CR-V had so many of these features too! For the 2016 model, you're basically getting everything that made the 2015 CR-V such a big hit, but brand-new and shiny once again. The interior trim is updated with more soft-touch materials than the CR-V had in the past, giving the 2016 CR-V a nicer look and even more comfortable feel. Oh, and there's a new special edition trim for 2016. That's the 2016 Honda CR-V vs 2015 Honda CR-V, and clearly they're both a great value. 

2016 Honda CR-V Special Edition

Let's talk about that special edition. It's slotted in between the LX and EX trim levels, and offers some exclusive design tweaks and upgrades. In addition to more exterior color options than the LX, the special edition comes with stylish 17-inch two-tone finish wheels. Seriously, look at those wheels, they're snazzy. It also adds tinted second-row and rear privacy glass, and a vehicle security system.  

Like every other trim level, the 2016 Honda CR-V Special Edition is available with either front-wheel drive or Honda's Real Time all-wheel drive system.
