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 2014 Honda CR-V is one of the more fuel-efficient models in its class--without six- or eight-speed transmissions, or direct injection.

Yet there's a bit of a back story as to how the CR-V pulls that off. with the CR-V's last redesign, 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. Although if you regularly drive in hilly terrain, or do a lot of passing or merging, you'll probably never see that kind of real-world improvement.

You'll get somewhat better mileage in front-wheel-drive models; though those with the so-called Real-Time AWD system fully disengage the rear wheels when cruising, to help save fuel.

Across the model line, there's a big green 'econ' button on the dash. With it, you engage a mode that softens throttle response and allows more frugal parameters for accessories.

Conclusion

Mileage ratings for the 2014 Honda CR-V are among the highest mileage in its class, but tall gear ratios don't always translate that to 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.
