The exterior design of this 2023 model looks more masculine and purposeful than the older generation. It has an excellent cabin space, thanks to its long hood and perfect exterior dimensions.
The side view is also impressive with flat black body cladding, clean alloy wheel design, and chrome window lining. LED taillights and dual exhausts add to the premium factor too.
The interior design of the seventh generation Honda CR-V has been completely revamped. With a strong emphasis on sporty looks, the new model is far more mature than its predecessor.
The clean lines and black leather-lined seats make it feel like a luxury car from a segment above.
There are four trims available for sale. The base trim is an affordable option, but it does not come loaded with all the bells and whistles.
The EX-L and Sport Hybrid trims offer some of the best value in the segment, with a great balance of price and features. The Sport Touring Hybrid, would be available for sale at a price of $39,000 and is made with luxury features like a leather interior and heated seats.
The base powertrain is a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4, which is paired with a CVT automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. It does the 0-60 MPH run in 9 seconds.
The Sport and Sport Touring trims’ punchy hybrid powertrain makes 204 hp. The 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 motor is combined with dual electric motors for superb performance in the compact SUV segment.
For the base EX and EX-L trims it comes with most of the features as standard. This includes a feature-packed 7" touchscreen infotainment screen, a 6-speaker audio system, and a long list of of driver-assistance techs.
The Sport Touring trim adds a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless phone charging and 12-speaker Bose sound to the 7-inch screen in lower trims.
Honda’s latest generation of the CR-V doesn’t offer a generous warranty—but it does come with complimentary maintenance for 2 years or 24,000 miles.
