What vehicle does every driver want? They want it to be reliable, powerful, and spacious, with excellent figures of towing and payload, maneuverable… Can you name a car that has all of this? We can. It's a Honda CR-V.
Honda CR-V is the embodiment of a commodious cabin room, smart technologies, easy handling, great fuel economy ratings, and practicability. Once creating this formula, this compact crossover has been following it for more than twenty years. This commitment to tradition makes it one of the famous vehicles in the segment. It has impressive specs, but now we'll discuss one of its crucial specs – the curb weight.
You can ask why we list the curb weight as an important one. Here's the answer: because other vehicle's features are dependent on it – how it performs, what fuel economy ratings it provides, how much it can tow up, how much protection it gives etc. Below, we'll explain the importance of the curb weight and its influence on such specs as towing and payload. And Honda CR-V will help us with that.
The first thing you should know about CR-V curb weight that it ranges depending on the trim level. There are four – LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. So, their curb weight figures are the following:
The LX curb weight varies from 3337 lbs to 3455 lbs. The EX has a varying curb weight from 3398 lbs to 3514 lbs. The curb weight of the EX-L is measured from 3413 lbs to 3529 lbs. And the top trim, the Touring, comes with the curb weight from 3452 to 3569 lbs.
We must admit that this is the curb weight of hybrid versions of Honda CR-V. Now, let's take a look at the non-hybrid models:
Before we discuss the towing and payload of the CR-V, we want to warn you that you shouldn't confuse the curb weight with the gross weight, as they are different. While the curb weight refers to the vehicle's weight when it's on the curb, without passengers and cargo, the gross weight is the weight that the vehicle has with all equipment plus passengers and load.
As we've said, the curb and gross weight greatly influence the towing and payload capacity. Here, one pattern exists – the lighter the vehicle in terms of curb weight, the more it can carry and pull. Does the CR-V follow this pattern? Look at the figures.
Its maximum towing capacity is rated at 1,500 pounds with 1,106 pounds of a payload. Do you need to carry a jet ski? With CR-V, it's easy. Do you want to go fishing and need to take a boat? For CR-V, it's not a problem. Such towing and payload figures allow you to fit your CR-V with everything you want.
