Honda CR-V hybrid adds FWD, more advanced powertrain

For the first time, the new hybrid system is rated to tow, delivering a 1,000-pound hauling capacity.

Fuel efficiency also improves. Configured with front-wheel drive, the CR-V Sport is EPA-rated to achieve 43 mpg in city driving, 36 mpg on the highway and 40 mpg combined. That’s a 3 mpg improvement for city, 1 mpg for highway and 2 mpg for combined driving.

Configured with all-wheel drive, fuel efficiency for the CR-V Sport and top-of-the-line CR-V Sport Touring (all-wheel drive only) is EPA-rated at 40 mpg city, 34 mpg highway and 37 mpg combined. That’s a drop of 1 mpg for highway and combined ratings, vs. the outgoing model.

Pricing for the 2023 Honda CR-V, including a $1,245 destination fee, is $32,355, an $1,800 increase, but the Sport hybrid’s starting price of $33,255 only represents a sub-$500 increase. The CR-V Sport Touring is priced at $39,045, including destination.
