Share this Post

Honda recently introduced the new special edition 2016 Honda CR-V.

"After a major refresh for 2015 that brought a new powertrain, significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling and a long list of new standard and available features, the 2016 Honda CR-V returns with a new Special Edition (SE) trim and a lineup with a starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $23,595," Honda says.

The new model adds larger 17-inch alloy wheels with an exclusive two-tone finish as well as second-row and rear privacy glass, and a new security system.

"With only an $800 premium over the LX, the SE represents a high-value proposition for the premium look and additional feature content," the manufacturer says.

According to Forbes, 28.6% of Honda CR-Vs are kept by their original owners for at least 10 years. Car and Driver refers to the 2016 Honda CR-V "one of the best compact crossovers on the market."

This week, Honda also announced that Honda South Carolina is donating $100,000 for relief efforts related to recent storm damage and record floods. The American Red Cross of Pee Dee will get $500,000 while Harvest Hope of the Pee Dee and Eastern Carolina Community Foundation will get $25,000 each.

“Honda and our associates want to help provide support for the many individuals and families, and our neighbors, who have been devastated by these historic floods,” said Brian Newman, president of Honda of South Carolina. “We believe it’s imperative for Honda to support our community in a time of need.”

Honda Financial Services is also working with customers from impacted areas to waive late fees and grant extensions.
