The all-new 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid is a technological marvel, built in Canada and available to consumers around the world. With its advanced two-motor hybrid-electric powertrain, the CR-V Hybrid Touring variant stands at the top of the CR-V lineup. This new model represents an important step in Honda's electrification strategy, with an estimated 50 percent of all CR-V sales expected to be hybrid models annually. An exciting option for car buyers looking for efficiency and performance, the 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid is sure to impress.

Impressive Performance and Efficiency

The 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid Touring is the most advanced and powerful version of the popular crossover yet. This model features an all-new two-motor hybrid-electric system with a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine mated to two electric motors that are now mounted side-by-side, providing a combined output of 204 horsepower with peak torque rising to 247 lb.-ft. Acceleration is quite impressive without sacrificing fuel economy, as the 2023 CR-V Hybrid Touring averages just 6.4 litres per 100 kilometres. Additionally, it also has a very respectable towing capacity of over 450 kg. Finally, the Linear Shift Control elevates the driving experience by mimicking the acceleration and engine rev feel associated with a conventional drivetrain shifting gears for an intuitive and dynamic ride.

A lot of interior space

The 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid provides drivers with an improved versatility and comfort. Its 40.6 mm longer wheelbase means more interior space, while the increased cargo room of 1028 L (1112.8 L when the rear load floor is lowered) allows for a variety of accessories or activities. The 60/40-split rear seatbacks can be folded flat to expand cargo space to 2166.2 L - perfect for households with constantly changing needs. What's more, a larger front-to-rear-seat couple distance and additional rear seat legroom (+15.2 mm) make this generation of CR-V Hybrid the most comfortable yet.

A ton of features

The 2023 Honda CR-V Touring Hybrid offers the most luxurious and advanced features of its lineup. Its standard 9-inch touchscreen with a physical volume knob, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility and simplified navigation with fewer menus are joined by Qi-compatible 15W wireless smartphone charging in order to keep you connected. The 12-speaker Bose premium audio system is custom-engineered for the interior, utilizing Centerpoint 2 technology and SurroundStage digital signal processing to create an immersive listening experience no matter where passengers sit. Standard digital instrumentation helps drivers stay informed, while Blind Spot Information System, Traffic Jam Assist, Low-Speed Braking Control and Traffic Sign Recognition as well as Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Lane Keeping Assist make journeys more enjoyable.

The 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid Touring model comes with plenty of unique features standard to make every drive more enjoyable. It starts with the 19" aluminum-alloy wheels, black heated power door mirrors with integrated turn signals, and luxurious perforated leather-trimmed seating surfaces with orange accents. A leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel paddle shifters add to the premium interior feel. Keeping everyone powered up is a breeze thanks to two front and two rear USB charging ports, plus the wireless charging pad in the front centre console. Finally, the rain-sensing variable intermittent windshield wipers help ensure optimal visibility on even the wettest of days.
