With the 2019 CR-V, there are a variety of options to choose from, including engines. Today, we are going to highlight the Honda CR-V 1.5L Turbo Engine in Katy and tell you all of the fantastic features that come with choosing this compact SUV.
This turbo engine comes standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels and can produce 190 horsepower and generate 179 pound-feet of torque. For those who don’t know the connection between the two, horsepower is the amount of output of an engine, while the torque measures the engines turning ability. Torque is a better measurement of acceleration while horsepower is a better measure if the CR-V’s top speed. On top of incredible speed and acceleration, the 1.5L Turbo engine offers excellent fuel economy as well, with 28 mpg* in the city and 34 mpg* on the highway. To help maintain speed efficiency, or keep at its peak horsepower, the CR-V has a continuously variable transmission with no “steps” between gears. Overall, this Honda is both powerful and efficient, so you can’t go wrong choosing the CR-V with the 1.5L Turbo engine.
There are a few more specs you’ll find only on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels other than its unique engine, and one of them is the driver alert monitor. This system can detect when the driver is inattentive and will sound a warning to suggest a break from the road. This can help you not be apart of the alarming statistic of 100,000 crashed and 1500 deaths per year caused by drivers who fall asleep. For convenience, these three models also come standard with a remote vehicle starting system which can have the engine ready to go while you’re heading out the door. After you activate this system, the climate control will automatically kick on heating or cooling the interior to your desired temperature.
