2021 Honda CR-V Touring Driving

With its spacious, comfortable interior and ample towing capacity, the 2021 Honda CR-V does it all without sacrificing great gas mileage for Asheville drivers. The 2021 Honda CR-V MPG reaches as high as 28 city / 34 highway*. We’re talking about the fuel economy you’d expect in a sedan packed into an SUV. With accolades for its economy from US News and Kelley Blue Book, the Honda CR-V is a great fit for fuel-conscious Hendersonville drivers. Find out more about how the Honda CR-V gets such great fuel economy with Apple Tree Honda. 

Honda CR-V MPG by Trim Level

The 2021 Honda CR-V is available in four trim levels, each equipped with a standard turbocharged 190-hp 1.5L 4-cylinder gasoline engine paired with a continuously variable automatic (CVT) transmission. Front-wheel drive is also standard, but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive if your Johnson City drives require more traction. It’s a great choice for drivers who love hitting the Blue Ridge Parkway. While it makes sense if you expect all-wheel drive to have a negative impact on your fuel economy—that’s what happens with many SUVs. But that’s not the case with the Honda CR-V MPG. See how each trim level and drivetrain compares on fuel economy: 

Honda CR-V LX

  • LX with 2WD and CVT — 28 mpg city / 34 mpg highway*
  • Honda CR-V LX with AWD and CVT — 27 mpg city / 32 mpg highway*

Honda CR-V EX

  • EX with 2WD and CVT: — 28 mpg city / 34 mpg highway*
  • EX with AWD and CVT — 27 mpg city / 32 mpg highway*

Honda CR-V EX-L

  • EX-L with 2WD and CVT 28 mpg city / 34 mpg highway*
  • EX-L with AWD and CVT — 27 mpg city / 32 mpg highway*

Honda CR-V Touring

  • Touring with 2WD and CVT — 28 mpg city / 34 mpg highway*
  • Touring with AWD and CVT — 27 mpg city / 32 mpg highway*

Hybrid Honda CR-V MPG Ratings

Want even better gas mileage? Consider the hybrid Honda CR-V with a 2.0L 4-cylinder gas engine that’s paired with two electric motors for a total output of 212 horsepower, as well as an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT). The hybrid Honda CR-V includes three drive modes — Sport, Econ, and EV — so you can have more control over the proportion of gas to electric power you use based on Fletcher driving conditions. Once again let’s see how the trim levels compare: 

  • Honda CR-V LX with AWD and Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT) — 40 mpg city / 35 mpg highway*
  • Honda CR-V EX with AWD and eCVT — 40 mpg city / 35 mpg highway*
  • Honda CR-V EX-L with AWD and eCVT — 40 mpg city / 35 mpg highway* 
  • Honda CR-V Touring with AWD and eCVT — 40 mpg city / 35 mpg highway*
