The Honda CR-V Hybrid starts things off with 18-inch wheels, LED head/tail lights, heated front seats, ambient lighting, push-button start, a power-adjustable drivers seat, a 7.0-inch infotainment screen, dual-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
The Honda CR-V Hybrids price for the 2023 model year starts at $32,450, and the highest-spec Sport Touring Hybrid models bump that up to around $38,600. With the Honda CR-V Hybrid, you get a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that is combined with two electric motors and a 1.4-kwh battery pack, to produce 204 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque.
Its new 2023 CR-V Hybrid is not just four-wheel-drive anymore, with even the lower Sport trim offered as a front-drive model. As far as fuel efficiency goes, the 2023 Honda CR-V gets 43 miles per gallon in the city, 36 miles per gallon on the highway, and 40 miles per gallon combined in the front-wheel-drive configuration, something that was not previously available. As expected, the 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid has better fuel economy, rated at 43/36 mpg city/highway, as opposed to 40/34 mpg best for the AWD.
The 40-mpg best-case rating is a full 2 mpg higher than last years CR-V Hybrid, but that is because Honda has introduced front-wheel-drive versions of its revised 2023 CR-V Hybrid, which are more gas-efficient. Honda has confirmed the combined 40-mpg rating of the 2023 redesigned 2023 CR-V Hybrid, and that is across the CR-V line, which now includes CR-V Hybrid Sport and Hybrid Sport Touring versions, essentially positioning the Hybrid as a more athletic option across the entire CR-V line. The standard CR-V is now powered by the 1.5-liter turbo-4 and a CVT, while the CR-V Hybrid gets the new Honda version of its twin-motor hybrid system.
All-wheel drive is an option in Sport, and standard in Sport Touring, and, incidentally, these are the only trim levels available as a 2023 Honda CR-V. A hybrid powertrain powers the Sport and Sport Touring, while a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, with Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT), powers the EX and EX-L. Available in front-wheel-drive (FWD) and four-wheel-drive (AWD) configurations, the 2023 Honda CR-V is powered either by the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine or the hybrid drivetrain.
The CR-Vs standard turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is far more powerful than the regular aspirated 4-cylinder in the 2023 Honda HR-V, and the 2023 Honda HR-Vs also offers a hybrid drivetrain, which delivers even more power along with excellent fuel economy. The real value is the hybrid 2023 Honda CR-V versions, starting at $33,695 for the Sport, in front-wheel-drive form, or $35,195 when you add AWD, and the top-of-the-line Sport Premium includes AWD and costs $39,945. Honda has also brought in a 2022 EX-L turbocharged AWD model, the highest-ranked of the last years hybrid line, for extra perspective.
