What Makes the 2023 CR-V Hybrid Models Unique?
The new CR-V features two hybrid trims – CR-V Sport and CR-V Sport Touring. They have a two-motor hybrid-electric powertrain and are more sporty and spacious in design. The 6th generation 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid models are placed first in Honda’s SUV lineup and will account for 50 percent of sales as part of Honda’s electrification strategy.
Both CR-V Sport and CR-V Sport Touring offer a sportier drive with fine engineering, high-quality materials, and advanced tech features. There are body-stabilizing seats to limit fatigue and improve passenger posture, with the most colossal cargo space in CR-V history.
They feature a new 4th-generation two-motor hybrid-electric system with a refined 2L Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine that gives direct fuel injection and is mated to a pair of electric motors mounted side-by-side. This results in using a larger propulsion motor with increased torque production of up to 247 lb.-ft. and 204 hp. The hybrid-electric system offers 10,000 pounds of towing capacity and allows for an increase in continuous maximum speed from 86 mph to 115 mph.
