According to Honda, nearly 3.5-million CR-V crossovers have been sold since the model was introduced in 1997 and has become the segment’s best-selling model of all time based on PAI/Autodata cumulative sales from 1997 to 2015 for the entry crossover utility vehicle segment.
The model received a major refresh for the 2015 model year, so the only significant change to the 2016 lineup is the addition of a Special Edition trim, positioned above the LX model. The 2016 Honda CR-V Special Edition is priced from $25,275 and adds larger 17-inch wheels with an exclusive two-tone finish, second-row and rear privacy glass and security system.
