What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Honda CR-V MPG

Honda CR-V Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Mixed city, and short (5-6 miles on freeway) commute averaging 23-24 mpg. Long road trip including some hills ~30-31 mpg. Does appear to get even higher (32 mpg?) on flat freeways around 60-70 mph.
2012 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD Had two months and drove 2950 miles. We averaged 29.9 mpg with about 70% being highway miles. Local miles are about 27mpg with between 30-34 on the highways at 70mph. These are actual miles via filling up although the onboard computer is very close
2011 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD 21 city/28 hghwy not bad for AWD
2009 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Solid for a small SUV
2008 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Its fuel economy was tops in the class
2008 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Not the best but definitely very good.
2008 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Getting above 30 on the highway
2008 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD usuall getting around 23 mpg and have gotten 28 on a long trip
2008 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD Better than predicted. Highway has averaged 31 mpg with proper tire inflation and smooth driving.
2008 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD reasonably efficient engine. not powerful, but just barely enough.
Honda CR-V Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2010 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD I guess I wish I was getting at least 30 mpg with fuel prices so high and future prices will be even higher.
2009 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD mediocre fuel economy for what is basically an AWD car.
2009 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD just bad. on the drive Ottawa-Montreal, never got better than 14 l/100 km, during fall months (no aircon). i know that winter make it eat up to 20 l/100 km (my mom drives crv).
2006 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD It only gets about 1 or 2 MPG less than a Pilot, which disappointed me. I would have went with a Pilot had I known the mileage would be SO close.
2003 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Worse economy than I expected and a smaller fuel tank too.
2002 4dr SUV 160-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp manual AWD I have gotten up to 32 MPG and usually get around 26 to 28. Nice.
2002 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD 23 mpg has been the best to date. That is tolerable when gas is less than $2.50, it will not feel so good when it goes above $3
2002 4dr SUV 185-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic AWD for a 4 cylinder poor miliage per gallon.
