Honda CR-V's Fuel Saving Innovations

2.4L i-VTEC engine produces 30 mpg highway and ULEV emissions.

Published: 05-Sep-2006

The 2007 Honda CR-V provides a cutting-edge combination of performance, efficiency and low emissions with a 2.4-liter, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine, standard 5-speed automatic transmission and available Real Time(TM) 4-wheel drive.

Drive-By-Wire(TM) throttle control smoothly choreographs shift points with the transmission, while Honda's Grade Logic Control helps the CR-V intuitively hold the most appropriate gear on hilly roads. Compared to the previous CR-V, the new 2007 CR-V accelerates faster, drives quieter with more smoothness and has a lower CARB emission rating.
