2016 Honda CR-V API

The 2016 Honda CR-V earned the Automotive Science Group’s (ASG) top award in class, earning ASG’s 2016 BEST ALL-AROUND PERFORMANCE Award in the Mid-size SUV class. In areas of environmental, social and economic performance, the three fundamentals of ASGʼs data-driven automotive life-cycle assessment platform - the Automotive Performance Index (API) - the CR-V outperformed 104 Mid-size SUVs, earning the distinction as an ASG best in class selection for model year 2016. 

ASG’s 2016 Study also found the Honda CR-V to hold the smallest life-cycle carbon footprint of any SUV in its class, earning ASG’s 2016 BEST ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE Award in the Mid-size SUV class.

The API applies statistical methods to demonstrate each vehicle rating in relative comparison. The vehicle that performs highest in any performance area, in a given class, obtains a rating score of 100 in that specific performance area (Economic, Social, Environmental and All-Around Performance). Each vehicle is then compared relative to the top-performing vehicle in its class, with a rating score reflecting the statistical difference in performance outcomes. For example, a rating of 95 translates to a 5% performance deficit as compared to the top-performing vehicle in class.
