The three trims making up the ’24 CR-V Hybrid lineup are Sport, Sport-L, and Sport Touring. Its hybrid powerplant, composed of a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and two electric motors, generates a total output of 204 horsepower. It works with an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT). While the Sport and Sport-L get standard front-wheel drive and are eligible for all-wheel drive, the Sport Touring is made only with AWD. The ’24 CR-V Hybrid’s fuel economy is remarkable, with FWD versions returning an EPA-estimated 43 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, and AWD versions achieving 40 city/34 highway.
The standard equipment in the base Sport is highlighted by heated front seats, proximity keyless entry, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power driver’s seat, roof rails, automatic LED headlights, heated side mirrors, push-button start, ambient interior lighting, a 7-inch digital gauge cluster, three USB-C charging ports, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback with a folding center armrest. The Sport-L marks its debut with stylish leather upholstery with orange contrast stitching, wireless phone charging, a power tailgate, driver’s-seat memory, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Sitting at the top of the range, the Sport Touring flaunts rain-sensing wipers, a hands-free tailgate, expanded ambient interior lighting, and a heated steering wheel.
This automaker places a high priority on safety, which is why every CR-V Hybrid trim has the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technologies installed. As such, all trims get forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, traffic jam assist, traffic sign recognition, and driver attention monitoring. The Sport-L and Sport Touring go the extra mile with front and rear parking sensors.
The 2024 CR-V Hybrid’s entertainment and connectivity features vary across the trim trio. The Sport’s multimedia system is made up of a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a six-speaker sound system. The Sport-L upgrades to a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, and eight speakers. At the lineup’s peak, the Sport Touring introduces navigation, voice recognition, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a very nice 12-speaker Bose sound system.
