GREEN | 7 out of 10
21/28 mpg city/highway 2WD, 21/27 4WD
we observed an average fuel economy of 19.8 miles per gallon in around 200 miles of mixed freeway and city driving
In Consumer Guide testing, we averaged 25.5 mpg in mostly highway driving.
What it lacks in quickness, it makes up for in fuel economy
CR-V's EPA ratings, of up to 21 mpg city, 28 highway, used to be near the front of the class, but over the past couple of model years there are many more good four-cylinder compact crossover wagons in its class, including several—like the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain (22/32)—that significantly exceed those numbers. To its credit, in repeated road tests, The Car Connection's editors have met or exceeded those numbers.
The 2011 Honda CR-V is powered by a fuel-efficient powertrain, but it's not much better than average on gas.
