2015-2016 Honda CR-V 2.4L Replacement Air Filter

This K&N high-flow replacement air filter, number 33-5031, is designed for a precise fit on your 2015 - 2016 Honda CR-V 2.4L

Introduced to the world for the 1997 model year, the Honda CR-V was the company’s first in-house compact SUV design. It’s gone on to earn accolades from owners and the media for its top-notch reliability and resale values, making it a popular choice in a category filled with tough competitors.

Back in 1997 the CR-V was launched with a Honda B20B 2.0L engine that produced 147 horsepower. Eighteen years later, an update of the third generation CR-V was launched with a technically-advanced engine and drivetrain. The 2015-2016 Honda CR-V’s new engine is the highly-sophisticated Earth Dreams Technology 2.4 liter direct-injected DOHC i-VTEC inline four-cylinder that produces 185 horsepower.

So despite over 15 years of time passing, the CR-V has gained less than 40 horsepower than the very first version way back before Y2K. Sadly, in the horsepower department the CR-V is being outshined by many of its competitors. The Ford Escape is available with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 240 horsepower, while the Chevrolet Equinox is available with a V-6 engine that produces 301 horsepower. Even the more luxurious Acura version of the CR-V, the RDX, comes equipped with a 3.5 liter V-6 producing 279 horsepower. In the world of compacts SUVs, the CR-V needs all the help it can get.

K&N High Flow Air Filter

Everything you need to replace the paper filter of a 2015 - 2016 Honda CR-V 2.4L is in the box, and installation should take less than 5 minutes

K&N automotive replacement air filters are designed to add horsepower and acceleration to your 2015-2016 Honda CR-V 2.4L engine by providing up to 50% more air flow to the engine. More air flow can result in crisper throttle response and more torque throughout the engine RPM range. The reason is that K&N air filters are manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, rather than restrictive paper, that not only allows for increased airflow but at the same time offers excellent filtration characteristics to ensure long engine life. This is more than a claim. K&N’s in-house air filter filtration efficiency testing, which adheres to ISO 5011 protocols, ensures that K&N replacement air filters provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection.

To assure optimum quality, K&N engineers design the filter to fit the CR-V’s air box and not simply short-cut the process by duplicating the original equipment air filter itself. This more lengthy process provides for the most precise fit and sealing as well as ease of installation. And once you’ve installed your K&N filter you no longer have to purchase and replace paper filters for the life of the vehicle.

The only maintenance required for a K&N automotive replacement air filter is a service you can do yourself.  At intervals of 50,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions) armed with the K&N Air Filter Cleaning Kit you can easily clean and re-oil your air filter. This will bring it back to like-new condition and ready for another 50,000 miles of driving. Your one K&N air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.
