We are officially in the last quarter of 2015, which means the remaining unrevealed 2016 models should start rolling in at a fever pitch. Today, Honda has revealed the 2016 CR-V to the world. While it seems to carry over completely unchanged, the 2016 CR-V does have one notable change.
Last year, Honda introduced the new Touring trim level for the CR-V. For 2016, Honda is again adding a new trim level, the SE. This new trim will slot between the base LX and the midrange EX, giving buyers one additional option beyond the typical offerings.
This new trim level is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive, like the rest of the CR-V lineup. In addition to the features that come standard on the LX, the SE adds 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, and a security system. For these extra goodies, Honda is only charging an extra $800 over the standard LX trim.
In terms of pricing, the CR-V LX FWD starts out at $23,595, which is $150 more than the 2015 model year. For buyers who want all-wheel drive, the LX trim runs $24,895, which is a $200 increase over the 2015 model. As stated earlier, the SE model runs $800 more than the LX model, putting it at $24,395 for the front-wheel-drive model and $25,695 for the all-wheel-drive model. The remaining trim levels include the EX FWD ($25,845), EX AWD ($27,145), EX-L FWD ($28,295), EX-L AWD ($29,595), EX-L Navi FWD ($29,795), EX-L Navi AWD ($31,095), Touring FWD ($31,945), and Touring AWD ($33,245).
The 2016 CR-V is available at dealers now.
