Over the years, the performance of Honda CR-V is being significantly improved. It is now known for its solid handling, enhanced braking and overall better control. At first, the CR-V has been paired up with a serviceable 16-valve DOHC I4 engine. Ever since the serviceable statistics of the first generation’s powertrain (the 2.0-liter) at 150bhp@630rpm and 186Nm@4500rpm), Honda focused on steadily improving the capabilities of the CR-V’s engine while spurring the development of the vehicle’s other important features forward. The trim level in the third generation, which is the 2.4 S-X, generates 170bhp@5800pm and 231Nm@4200rpm.
The latest models of Honda CR-V come in four varieties: 2.0 V MT, 2.0 V AT, 2.0 S AT, and the 2.4 SX Navi AT. All trim levels use an Inline 4 cylinder DOHC I-VTEC engine. The 2.4-liter i4 engine produces 185 hp and 245 Nm of torque. The 2015 model is also mated with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) instead of a 5-speed automatic in the previous models. It allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds, before it reaches a top speed of 199 km/h.
