Honda teases all-new 2023 CR-V crossover – Photos
Honda just dropped images of the all-new CR-V. The CR-V is one of the best-selling vehicles in the United States and one of the perennial top sellers for the largest segment of the American automotive industry. The 2023 model year brings a new generation of CR-Vs to a hungry market.
Expect to see the usual trimmings with the Hybrid. Honda hasn’t announced a plug-in hybrid, and we suspect we won’t see one, although we’d be more than happy to be wrong about that.
Honda chose the Hybrid to represent the new CR-V in its images. The current hybrid version earns a combined 38 MPG estimated by the EPA. However, many owners report that they find the fuel efficiency to be a little lower. We suspect the next generation will take care of that. The segment-leading RAV4 Hybrid delivers 40 MPG, and owners often report better-than-expected MPG.
Honda promises the new CR-V will offer owners increased versatility and have a rugged, sophisticated design. Honda said in a press release that the hybrid version will have “a more advanced hybrid system for a sportier driving experience and more capability.”
Watch Torque News for more details on the upcoming CR-V and review later this summer.
