About the Honda CR-V Hybrid

Marking another historic milestone in the storied heritage of the Honda CR-V, you can now maximize your MPG with the efficient CR-V Hybrid. Drivers across the country have fallen in love with the CR-V, helping to make it America’s best-selling crossover for two decades. The Honda CR-V Hybrid is proudly assembled in North America, a testament to its quality. With the introduction of the CR-V Hybrid, Honda is one step closer to accomplishing its goal of achieving two-thirds of its global automotive sales from electrified models by the year 2030. Its outstanding fuel economy figures come as a result of its innovative dual-motor hybrid powertrain. Boldly redesigned exterior styling also helps to elevate the CR-V Hybrid above the competition. Advanced tech features throughout the cabin along with standard driver-assistive safety features help the Honda CR-V outperform even its most established rivals.

What the Critics Say

Hats off to Honda’s chassis engineers, the CR-V handles winding B-roads with a poise and agility that you wouldn’t expect from a family-friendly hybrid crossover. The steering is light and easy, but also responsive and accurate. The suspension soaks up cracked, uneven pavement imperfections gracefully without feeling soft around corners.” — CNET

What you might notice most about the interior, though, is how peaceful it is. Through powertrain refinements, the stiffer body, a noise-canceling system, and sound-absorption materials applied throughout the cabin, Honda insulated the passenger compartment from most encroaching sounds. Coupled with the interior’s fresh styling, the 2023 CR-V Hybrid takes on an air of premiumness that is appreciated from an SUV at this price point.” — MotorTrend

What’s New for 2023

The popular Honda CR-V Hybrid receives an extensive redesign both inside and out for the 2023 model year. Under the hood, you’ll find a new fourth-generation two-motor hybrid powertrain that’s more efficient than the outgoing model. Its revised exterior look is more sophisticated while the new interior features upscale materials for a more refined experience inside the cabin. Now available with your choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the Honda CR-V Hybrid remains the top choice among compact hybrid SUVs.

Efficient Performance

An excellent choice for compact crossover shoppers searching for the ultimate in efficiency, the Honda CR-V Hybrid is powered by an advanced two-motor powertrain to help you go farther than ever before. Engineered to help you get the most out of every mile, this proven powertrain features two electric motors in addition to a 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC Atkinson cycle engine which offers over 40 percent thermal efficiency. Each of these unique attributes allows the CR-V Hybrid to deliver smooth, seamless power delivery due to the fact that its construction doesn’t require a traditional automatic transmission. One of the key strengths of the Honda CR-V since its introduction has been its tremendous cargo-carrying capabilities. This remains true with the CR-V Hybrid thanks to its ingenious positioning of the intelligent power unit (IPU) beneath the rear cargo floor. Offering a total of 204 combined system horsepower, the CR-V Hybrid offers up to an outstanding 40 MPG combined fuel economy rating**.

With the available 9-inch Display Audio interface with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, all of your favorite apps and media are right at your fingertips.

Honda CR-V Hybrid Safety

Groundbreaking Safety

To help keep you protected from the unexpected on the highways, all Honda CR-V Hybrid models come standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive safety technologies. Examples of these innovative safety features include Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow, Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian sensing capability. Another feature that will debut on the CR-V Hybrid is the Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS).
