About the Honda CR-V Hybrid

The Honda CR-V has earned a reputation as America’s best-selling crossover for over two decades. Now, the most-loved compact SUV in the country is available with a fuel-efficient hybrid drivetrain. It’s built to the same exacting standards as the standard CR-V in Honda’s North American assembly plants, but with the added benefits of an electrified drivetrain augmenting the traditional gasoline engine. Honda is hoping that, by the year 2030, two-thirds of their new car sales will come from electrified vehicles like this one. Given the success of the CR-V, it’s clear that offering a hybrid variant is a big step in the right direction.

The CR-V Hybrid utilizes a sophisticated two-motor hybrid powertrain that allows for remarkable efficiency in its class. Cutting-edge technology inside the cabin, combined with groundbreaking standard safety features, help to make the Honda CR-V Hybrid a truly remarkable compact crossover SUV. Here’s to a brighter future.

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

Honda CR-V Hybrid Performance

Efficient Performance

If you’re the type of driver who demands maximum efficiency, the Honda CR-V Hybrid lets you enjoy the benefits of its sophisticated two-motor powertrain. Engineered to help you go further, this unique powertrain combines two electric motors with a 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC Atkinson cycle engine with greater than 40 percent thermal efficiency. These characteristics allow the CR-V Hybrid to operate without the need for a conventional automatic transmission, allowing for smooth and seamless power delivery at all speeds. The compact intelligent power unit (IPU), housing the hybrid battery pack and its control systems, is mounted under the cargo floor to preserve interior versatility. In total, the Honda CR-V Hybrid delivers 204 horsepower with up to a remarkable 40 MPG combined fuel economy rating**.

You’ll also enjoy an instrument panel that’s unique to CR-V Hybrid models featuring a display with power distribution and regeneration readouts. Available leather-trimmed seating surfaces let you and your passengers relax as the miles fly past your windshield.

Honda CR-V Hybrid Safety

Groundbreaking Safety

For the ultimate confidence behind the wheel, every Honda CR-V Hybrid comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive safety technologies. Examples of these technologies 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. One feature that’s unique to the CR-V Hybrid is a new Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS). This innovative system includes a speaker mounted in the front bumper which can generate a distinct audible alert that varies in volume depending on vehicle speed for increased pedestrian awareness.
