America’s favorite SUV of the past quarter century
has raised the bar, as the all-new 2023 Honda CR-V debuts with a rugged and sophisticated design, along with a new, more advanced 4th-generation hybrid-electric system for a fuel-efficient, sporty and more capable driving experience.

Up until now, Honda has only provided teasers of the 2023 CR-V, with minor details on its exterior as well as its information on the hybrid model. The CR-V hybrid models are positioned as the top of the CR-V lineup and will represent about 50 percent of sales for this sixth-generation, a key step in the Honda electrification strategy.

Due to the increased size of the
redesigned 2023 Honda HR-V, the 2023 CR-V followed suit and has also grown significantly. The new model has a 1.6 inch longer wheelbase, a 2.7 inch increase in overall length, and an 0.4 inch uptick in width. Honda says this results in more rear legroom, and cargo space for the hybrid is improved.

Key CR-V Features:

  • Distinctive, bolder styling for hybrid-powered Sport and Sport Touring Trims

  • Standard digital instrumentation

  • 9-inch HD touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility (EX-L and Sport Touring)

  • Standard 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility (EX and Sport)

  • Enhanced global Honda architecture

  • Updated 1.5-liter Turbo engine (EX, EX-L)

  • Retuned Real Time All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control

  • New Hill Descent Control

  • Standard Honda Sensing system with new wide-view camera and radar, plus new Traffic Jam Assist (TJA), Low-Speed Braking Control and Traffic Sign Recognition system (TSR)


As America’s outright best-selling SUV of the past 25 years the Honda HR-V has played a critical role in our past, but what’s significant about the new CR-V is the important roll it will play in our future – with the CR-V hybrid to represent about 50 percent of sales,” said Mike Kistemaker, assistant vice president of Honda sales at American Honda. “More stylish, more rugged, more tech and more fun-to-drive, this 6th generation CR-V will be best in class in a large segment where that really matters.”
