Not only the newest SUV from Honda but the newest vehicle in the lineup, the 2016 Honda HR-V represents the future of the compact crossover: sleek, stylish, and above all else, fuel efficient.
This five-person crossover is great for a small family or as a second car for a larger family, fitting easily into the budget thanks to engine specs like these:
Every 2016 HR-V has a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque.
The peppy engine is paired with an available continuously variable transmission (CVT) that helps keep the HR-V as fuel-efficient as it is fun. 2016 HR-V 2WD CVT models earn an EPA-estimated 35 highway mpg and 28 city mpg.**
Michigan drivers know the power all-wheel drive brings on snow and on uneven terrain, and each of the HR-V’s three trim levels is available with Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive.
Real Time All-Wheel Drive is a smart AWD system, engaging only when needed and leading to the 2016 HR-V AWD models having an EPA-estimated 32 highway mpg and 27 city mpg.**
The crossover revolution of the ’90s started with the Honda CR-V, and it’s been the pace car for the sporty, midsize SUV class ever since. Everything that has made the crossover popular has carried over to the 2016 Honda CR-V, making it one of the most versatile, practical, and affordable vehicles on the road.
With engine specs like these, it’s easy to see how the CR-V is one of the best gas mileage SUVs in Mid-Michigan.
Under the hood of each 2016 CR-V is a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
When you need more room than the spacious CR-V cargo hold has, this crossover can tow as much as 1,500 pounds.
Honda has improved the fuel economy of the CR-V year after year, and the 2016 CR-V 2WD earns an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg and 26 city mpg.**
The peace of mind that comes with all-wheel drive can be had on any of the CR-V’s trim levels, and it barely impacts the fuel economy. 2016 CR-V AWD models are rated at an EPA-estimated 31 highway mpg and 25 city mpg.**
While the mid-range CR-V might be the “just right” that Goldilocks was looking for, we know that some drivers need something bigger. The 2016 Honda Pilot has seating for as many as eight passengers and features five different trim levels to offer all of the amenities a modern driver could want. See the engine stats that make this one of the best gas mileage SUVs in the Mid-Michigan area.
Under the hood of each of the five different trim levels is a 3.5L V6 engine with 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.
In addition to giving you added traction off-road and in snow, all-wheel drive upgrades the Pilot from a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds to 5,000 pounds.
Every 2016 Pilot 2WD LX gets an EPA-estimated 27 highway mpg and 19 city mpg.**
Whether you add Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive for the traction or the towing capacity, the fuel economy remains impressive at an EPA-estimated 26 highway mpg and 18 city mpg on 2016 Pilot AWD LX models.**
The Pilot has no trouble trouncing competitors like the Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Ford Explorer when it comes to fuel economy, either.
