Mechanical Basics and Fuel Economy

The duo of trims choice for the 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid are available: Sport and Sport Touring. The powerplant is new this time around; it combines dual electric motors with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas-burning engine for a total system output of 204 hp and 247 lb.-ft. of torque. The partner in that powertrain is an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT), and front-wheel drive comes standard with all-wheel drive an option. The EPA has estimated fuel economy for the FWD 2023 CR-V Hybrid at 43 mpg in city driving and 36 mpg on the highway, while it gets 40 city/34 highway with AWD.

Standard Equipment by Trim

The Sport is equipped with a moonroof, LED headlights with auto-on/off, LED taillights, push-button ignition, dual-zone auto climate control, gloss-black rooftop rails, heated gloss-black exterior mirrors with integrated LED turn-signal indicators, a dual chrome exhaust, a 7-inch driver information interface, center console ambient lighting, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated front seats with driver’s power adjustments, a 60/40-split rear seatback with a folding center armrest, and Honda’s Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (proximity entry with automatically locking doors). The Sport Touring adds leather seats, a heated steering wheel, a hands-free tailgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, expansion of the ambient interior lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, driver’s-seat position memory, a power front passenger’s seat, and – new for this model year – wireless phone charging.

Advanced Safety Features

We mentioned in the intro that the Honda Sensing advanced safety technology suite has been revamped as part of the redesign. It now contains a wide-view camera system and blind-spot monitoring in addition to rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning with mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, and traffic sign recognition. All CR-V Hybrids are also set up with hill descent control, traffic jam assist, and low-speed braking control. The Sport Touring also gets front and rear parking sensors.

Keeping Connected

The aforementioned updated infotainment system has a 7-inch touchscreen in the Sport trim, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth for hands-free phone and audio streaming, and an audio system with six speakers. The Sport Touring moves up to a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, navigation, voice recognition, and a Bose sound system with a full dozen speakers. On both trims, drivers can use the free HondaLink app for basic remote vehicle management; the Sport Touring is eligible for a subscription-based version offering additional services. Passengers can count on three USB-C charging ports (one in the front console and two in the second row) and one front-console USB smartphone/audio interface for staying charged and connected. There are also 12-volt power outlets in the front console and the cargo area.
