Can the 2021 CR-V go off-road?
If your plan is to try to climb a mountain or go through deep mud holes, the 2021 Honda CR-V probably isn’t going to be the platform for you. However, the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ will be perfect for dealing with deteriorating road conditions. While snow and ice aren’t major concerns in our area, if you were to encounter those things, all-wheel-drive will give you some additional peace of mind.
Does all-wheel-drive affect fuel economy?
Honda engineers have done everything in their considerable power to make the 2021 Honda CR-V as efficient as possible. The vehicle’s fuel economy scores will have some small differences, depending on which of the two drivetrains is equipped. A 2021 CR-V with two-wheel-drive, it will return 28 miles per gallon* in the city and 34 miles per gallon* on the highway. Meridian Honda customers choosing an AWD-equipped version will see 27 mpg* in the city and 32 mpg* on the highway.
