About Honda CR-V Hybrid

About the Honda CR-V Hybrid

Marking another historic milestone in the storied heritage of the Honda CR-V, 2020 will be the first model year for 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. As Honda’s first-ever hybrid, the all-new CR-V Hybrid will be assembled in Greensburg, Indiana alongside the traditional CR-V and the Insight hybrid sedan. With the introduction of the all-new 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 all-new Honda CR-V outperform even its most established rivals.

What the Critics Say

With the 2020 CR-V Hybrid, Honda continues to offer up a functional, high-quality, and thoughtfully designed cabin. The biggest change to the cabin is the revamped center console, which now includes more room for purses and other bags, as well as wireless phone charging and a push-button shifter on the hybrid.” — Motor Trend
We already think the gas-powered CR-V is a better all-around vehicle than the gas RAV4. If Honda can couple those core CR-V strengths with fuel economy that matches or tops the RAV4 Hybrid’s, it has a shot at tapping into some of that latent demand.” — Edmunds

Honda CR-V Hybrid Features

Honda CR-V Hybrid

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. Using the same innovations as the current Accord Hybrid, 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 allow 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 all-new CR-V Hybrid thanks to its ingenious positioning of the intelligent power unit (IPU) beneath the rear cargo floor. Offering a total of 212 combined system horsepower, the CR-V Hybrid targets an anticipated 50% EPA-estimated city fuel economy increase.

Honda CR-V Hybrid Interior

Luxurious Interior

Choosing a hybrid SUV no longer means having to make sacrifices on refinement and comfort when you drive a Honda CR-V Hybrid. You’ll also discover plenty of unique interior treatments which separate the CR-V Hybrid from its conventional CR-V sibling. One example is its signature push-button gear selector which is accented with switches for Econ, Sport, and EV drive modes. Another distinctive feature of the CR-V Hybrid is a digital readout within the gauge cluster that provides information related to energy regeneration and power distribution. Perfect for getting comfortable on extended road trips, the CR-V Hybrid can be equipped with optional leather-trimmed seats. With the available 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). Intended to increase pedestrian awareness, this innovative system uses a speaker mounted in the front bumper to generate an audible alert which varies in volume depending on the speed of the vehicle.
