Engine and Transmission
The turbocharged engine—a 1.5-liter unit makes 190 horsepower, in a CR-V and pairing it with one of the best continuously variable automatic transmissions (CVTs) available. While most compact crossovers have meager towing limits, the CR-V has one of the lowest at 1500 pounds. However, moonlighting as a street racer might be disappointed with the CR-V’s acceleration.
The composed and compliant ride of the CR-V makes for pleasant commutes, long or short. Its responsive brake pedal means you receive the stopping power you want when you ask for it. The CR-V hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors that combine for 212 horsepower.
