The Honda CR-V is one of the most popular SUVs in the world, with over 10 million units sold since its debut in 1995. The all-new 2023 Honda CR-V is ready to impress even more customers with its new powertrain options, enhanced design, improved comfort, advanced safety features, and better fuel efficiency.
The 2023 Honda CR-V offers two powertrain options: a 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine that delivers 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque or a hybrid system that combines a 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine with two electric motors for a total output of 212 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Both powertrains are paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides smooth and responsive acceleration.
The hybrid system also features a real-time all-wheel drive (AWD) system that automatically distributes torque between the front and rear wheels according to driving conditions. The hybrid system also has three driving modes: EV Drive, which uses only electric power; Hybrid Drive, which uses both engine and electric power; and Engine Drive, which uses only engine power.
The 2023 Honda CR-V has a sleek, sophisticated exterior design reflecting its dynamic performance and premium quality. The front fascia features a new grille with a chrome wing that connects the LED headlights, a new bumper with larger air intakes and fog lights, and a new hood with sharper lines. The side profile showcases the new alloy wheels in 18-inch or 19-inch sizes, the new chrome window trim, and the new body-colored roof rails. The rear end features a new tailgate with a hands-free power function, a new bumper with integrated exhaust pipes, and new LED taillights.
The interior of the 2023 Honda CR-V is spacious and comfortable, with room for five passengers and plenty of cargo space. The cabin features high-quality materials, soft-touch surfaces, and refined details. The dashboard has a new digital instrument cluster with a 7-inch display that shows various information such as speed, fuel level, hybrid system status, and driver assistance systems. The center console has a new infotainment system with a 9-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging, and Wi-Fi hotspot. The seats are upholstered in leather or fabric, depending on the trim level, and have heating and ventilation functions for the front seats and heating functions for the rear seats.
The 2023 Honda CR-V also boasts a comprehensive suite of safety and driver assistance features that make driving easier and safer. The Honda Sensing system includes adaptive cruise control (ACC) with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist system (LKAS), road departure mitigation system (RDM), collision mitigation braking system (CMBS) with pedestrian detection, traffic sign recognition (TSR), and blind spot information system (BSI) with cross traffic monitor. The 2023 Honda CR-V also has a multi-angle rearview camera, a head-up display (HUD), and an intelligent driver attention monitor (i-DAM) that alerts the driver if they show signs of fatigue or distraction.
The Honda CR-V is expected to hit the market in early 2023 with a starting price of around $26,000. It will be available in four trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. The hybrid version will be offered in all trim levels except LX.
The Honda CR-V is a global favorite for a reason: it offers more style, comfort, safety, and efficiency than ever before. Whether you choose the turbocharged engine or the hybrid system, you will enjoy a smooth and powerful ride that will make you feel confident and relaxed on any road. The Honda CR-V is the perfect SUV for anyone who values versatility, quality, and innovation.
