The 2016 Honda CR-V is technically classified as a “small” crossover or SUV with an overall length of a little under 15 feet and an overall height of (at the most) a little over five feet. However, the label of “small” SUV doesn't mean that the 2016 CR-V isn't a powerful machine. Although the four-cylinder engine may not look impressive at first, it is a powerhouse capable of pumping out 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, which is more than enough for anything that Kelley Blue Book might call “small.” In addition, that compact-yet-powerful engine is tied to the wheels through either a two-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive system, delivering that power to the road (or grass, or dirt, or whatever) using your choice of just two or all four tires.
Of course, one of the main reasons to buy an SUV is space. You need space to take your kids to school (with their backpacks, soccer equipment, band instruments, etc.), you need space to move cargo around (trays of seedlings don't exactly fit into the definition of “compact”), and you simply need space to stretch out your legs while you drive. The 2016 CR-V has it covered. For hauling people, the CR-V seats five, with a total passenger volume of over 100 cubic feet. For hauling your precious seedlings, the CR-V features 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat up, which expands to 70.9 cubic feet with the seat folded down.
