Equipped for the Next Generation

The new 2023 Honda CR-V EX features an enhanced 1.5-liter turbo engine with VTEC® and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that has gone through a retuning process for improved response. The combination is smoother performance with additional refinement, improved emissions performance and 190 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm (SAE net). Its 179 lb.-ft. (SAE net) peak torque spans 1,700 to 5,000 rpm, arriving 300-rpm earlier than before for a more responsive feel.

A new easy-to-use 7-inch touchscreen audio system is standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, physical knobs for volume and tuning, and a simplified menu structure. Heated front seats, partial digital instrumentation, dual-zone automatic climate control, a one-touch power sliding moonroof, heated outside mirrors, LED headlights and 18-inch wheels are also standard.

EX-L Surrounds You In Premium Comfort

The EX-L edition also features the 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and builds on the EX's equipment list with leather seats and a standard 9-inch touchscreen with a physical volume knob, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility and a simplified menu structure. Qi-compatible 15W wireless smartphone charging, an upgraded 8-speaker audio system and Low Speed Braking Control are also standard.

Hybrid Efficiency and Performance

For a sportier driving experience, the 2023 CR-V Sport will come standard with the new hybrid system featuring a more refined 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine. Combined system output climbs to 204 hp4 (ISO net; a 3 hp increase), while the traction-motor peak torque rises to 247 lb.-ft. (up 15 lb.-ft.). Moreover, the hybrid powertrain brings a major fuel economy benefit compared to the 1.5L Turbo powertrain, with an EPA city rating of 43 mpg in the city for Sport versus 28 mpg for EX/EX-L, and a combined rating of 40 mpg for Sport versus 30 mpg for EX/EX-L (all with 2WD).

Sport also features even bolder styling that includes gloss black exterior accents, rectangular exhaust finishers and Berlina Black 18-inch wheels. Inside, Sport-specific seating surfaces and a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel are standard.

Top of the Line Sport Touring Edition

At a starting MSRP of $38,600, the Sport Touring edition will sit atop the CR-V lineup, also featuring the new, more-powerful 2.0-liter hybrid powertrain, along with standard all-wheel drive and larger 19-inch wheels and tires. Inside, a new 12-speaker Bose premium audio system with Bose Centerpoint technology and SurroundStage digital signal processing has been custom-engineered to deliver an optimal listening experience for all passengers regardless of their seating position. Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ and Wi-Fi Hotspot capability are also standard.

Overall Driving Refinement

Every 2023 CR-V boasts extensive enhancements to the body, chassis and powertrain, safety technology, and overall driving refinement. An updated version of Honda's Real Time All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Intelligent Control System™ is available on all grades and standard on Sport Touring. For the sixth-generation CR-V, the Real Time AWD system is quieter and can now send up to 50% of engine torque to the rear wheels, improving handling performance as well as traction management in slippery conditions. A new Hill Descent Control system enhances CR-V's off-road capability.

Torrington Honda drivers can also customize their driving experience for various conditions with three selectable drive modes, Normal, Econ and a new Snow mode that maximizes available traction and performance in the slick snowy conditions Connecticut drivers experience every winter. Sport and Sport Touring models also add a new Sport mode, for an even more engaging driving experience.

In addition, all 2023 CR-Vs come standard with an expanded Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive technologies that includes Traffic Jam Assist and a smoother, more natural feeling to functions, such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). A rear seat reminder and rear seatbelt reminder are also new and standard across the lineup.
