How Much Can a Honda CR-V Tow?

How much can a Honda CR-V tow across the trim lineup, and how do optional features impact towing capability? Actually, you don’t need a trim upgrade to access the CR-V’s top towing capacity! The base trim features a 1.5L I-4 engine that generates 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque, and a CR-V towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. That’s enough power to tow a wide variety of camping and sports equipment:

  • An ATV
  • Jet skis
  • Small teardrop camper
  • Small non-motorized boat
  • 16-foot tandem axle utility trailer
  • And more!

With an 850-pound payload capacity on the base trim, you’re free to load up the CR-V cabin with heavy items like building supplies and furniture. At higher trim levels, you’ll have up to 1,106 pounds of payload capacity at your disposal.


Honda CR-V Towing Package

How much can a Honda CR-V tow with the available towing package? You’ll be able to tow up to 1,500 pounds with or without it, but additional CR-V towing features will give you better control over your cargo or trailer, especially when driving conditions in Marlton are less than ideal:

  • Honda CR-V Towing Package – You’ll have all the gear you need to tow heavy loads through Vineland: tow hitch, drawbar, hitch harness, and optional Power Tailgate Hands-Free Access Adapter.
  • Hill Start Assist – With Hill Start Assist, your CR-V won’t roll back on steep inclines.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control – The VSA® system strategically dustribites torque to enhance traction on slick roads.
  • Brake Assist – With this system engaged, the brakes are triggered automatically if the driver isn’t able to respond fast enough to avoid a collision.
  • Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ The available Honda Real-Time AWD™ drivetrain offers tighter handling and more reliable traction, even on unpredictable terrain and unsteady surfaces.


Honda CR-V Cargo Space

The CR-V may be compact, but you can fit a lot more junk in the trunk than you might expect. Plus, 60/40-split rear seats allow you to reconfigure your seating and cargo space in seconds. Whether you’re on carpool duty in Berlin or road-tripping to the ends of the earth, you won’t want for space:

  • Cargo Volume Behind 1st Row – 75.8 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind 2nd Row – 39.2 cubic feet
