23 mpg city, 31 highway (front-wheel drive); 22/30 (4WD)
U.S. EPA

For even greater sluggishness, Honda fits all 2012 CR-Vs with an “econ” button that dulls throttle response and widens the acceptable window of variation for the cruise and climate controls
Car and Driver




The 2013 Honda CR-V is one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class, but there's a bit of a back story as to why.

Last year, instead of adding a six-speed automatic to the lineup, Honda made the gear ratios taller for the five-speed automatic transmission. If you live in mostly level terrain, that translates to substantially better gas mileage—as reflected in the EPA ratings of 23 mpg city, 31 highway with front-wheel drive, or 22/30 with 4WD. But if you regularly drive in hilly terrain, or do a lot of passing or merging, it's likely you won't see as much of an improvement in the real world.

A big green 'econ' button on the dash engages a mode that softens throttle response and more frugal parameters for accessories, and it may bring your actual mileage more in line with the EPA ratings.

Conclusion

The 2013 Honda CR-V has some of the highest mileage ratings in its class, but tall gear ratios mean that you're not as likely to see them in real-world driving.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
