    I am about to buy a new CR-V but not sure what engine to get.
    1.6 or 1.6 4WD. Any suggestions? MPG big difference between the 2?

    Any help would be great

    Does it not have much lower MPG figures though?

    Yes, but petrol is cheaper and they are a lot more reliable and cheaper to run in the long term.

    We went for the 1.6awd as we tow. Auto version as well. Round town get in top 30s, motorway cruising get around 50-55. Towing gives 28-33. All figures from onboard computer, so a pinch of salt probably needed .

    I am using 2.0 petrol as well. Very happy with it! Reasonable economy, no DPF issues, very pleasant on the NVH side.
