The New 2023 Honda CR-V


Following in the new Honda Civic's footsteps, the new 2023 CR-V comes with a sleek design and an impressive array of features. The minimalist yet luxurious exterior truly gives this vehicle a unique edge in the competitive SUV market.

The complete redesign marks the start of a sixth generation for the CR-V, and Honda definitely pulled out all the stops with this one. Compared to previous generations, this model is 2.7 inches longer and has a broader stance. If you're looking for an affordable compact crossover SUV with tons of options and top-notch safety features, the 2023 CR-V is worth considering.

Read on for everything you need to know about the new CR-V, including specs, mileage, safety features, and the various trim levels.

2023 Honda CR-V Specs

Under the hood, the CR-V has a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. It also has a CVT  transmission and offers front-wheel or all-wheel drive options.

Alternatively, you can go Hybrid with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and  electric motor combination that delivers 204 total system horsepower. As electric vehicles become more popular, it's great to have a hybrid CR-V option.

2023 Honda CR-V Colors

As far as the vehicle's exterior goes, it's one of the most customizable CR-Vs yet. It's what makes your vehicle truly your own. You'll want to    choose a color that reflects your personality, and you have plenty of options this year. The 2023 CR-V offers eight different color options,    including:

  •         Urban Gray Pearl   
  •         Still Night Pearl   
  •         Radiant Red Metallic   
  •         Platinum White Pearl   
  •         Meteorite Gray Metallic   
  •         Lunar Silver Metallic   
  •         Crystal Black Pearl   
  •         River Blue Metallic   

Honda CR-V 2023 Interior

If you thought the exterior redesign was impressive, just wait until you see the interior. The 2023 CR-V features a stunning new layout with leather seats and modern technology, like a 7-inch touchscreen display and wireless  charging capabilities.

Inside the infotainment system, you'll have access to Apple CarPlay,  Android Auto, and SiriusXM radio. The menu has also been revamped to make access and navigation easier than ever. The intuitive design truly caters to the modern driver.

One of the standout features of the new CR-V interior is the new climate control system. This vent spans the entire dashboard, allowing for a more even distribution of air throughout the cabin. Once again, Honda nails the sporty yet sophisticated aesthetic.

2023 Honda CR-V MPG

When it comes to fuel efficiency, the 2023 CR-V delivers. The non-hybrid models have an EPA-estimated 28 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway. The front-wheel Hybrid is the most efficient model of the lineup and has even better mileage at 43 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway.

For a compact crossover SUV, these mileage numbers aren't too hard on the wallet and are comparable to some of the competition.

2023 Honda CR-V Safety

Honda always puts a strong emphasis on safety, and the 2023 CR-V is no exception. It comes standard with a suite of Honda Sensing® safety features, including Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and Lane  Keeping Assist System.

Additionally, the CR-V offers available features like Blind Spot  Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor and Auto High-Beam Headlights. These added safety options make the 2023 CR-V a top pick for families seeking a reliable, safe vehicle.

2023 Honda CR-V Trim Levels

Now that we know what kind of engine, mileage, and safety features the 2023  Honda CR-V has to offer, let's dive into the various trim levels available. We'll go from the base EX model to the top-of-the-line Touring trim.


First up is the EX model, which offers excellent value for its starting price. It has 18-inch alloy wheels, giving it a sporty look, and LED    headlights for added visibility. While the interior isn't quite as luxurious as the higher trim levels, it still has a handy 7-inch touchscreen display, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

Some added convenience features in the EX include heated door mirrors, USB charging ports, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Standout features:

  •         Drive modes: Choose between economy, normal, and snow driving for optimal performance.   
  •         Remote starter: Start your car from the comfort of your home for added convenience.   


Moving up to the EX-L trim adds even more convenience features like a power tailgate, a moonroof, and leather seats for a touch of luxury. It also upgrades the audio system with eight speakers instead of six in the base model. As for the infotainment system, it is slightly larger at 9 inches and includes satellite navigation.

Your passengers will also appreciate the upgrade, as the EX-L comes with four-way power-adjustable front seats. It even has heated seats in the front and back to keep everyone cozy during those chilly mornings. The back seat now has USB ports of its own, making it easier to keep devices charged  while on the go.

Standout features:  

  •         Wireless charging pad: Charge your compatible devices without the hassle of plugging in.   
  •         Memory seats for the driver: Customize your driving experience with pre-set seat and mirror positions.   


For those looking for a sportier ride, the Sport trim offers some added  performance features. The 18-inch wheels really pop on the Sport model  because they are unique with a black and machined finish. The Sport trim also adds sport mode and paddle shifters for added control on the road. Likewise, the interior gets sportier with leather trim on the steering wheel and shift knob.

Like in the EX-L trim, a power tailgate and moonroof come standard. You'll be able to proudly show off your vehicle's power thanks to the exclusive sports badge on the exterior. An illuminated vanity mirror and front roof  ambient LED lighting add a touch of luxury to the Sport trim, while the 8-way power driver's seat and heated front seats provide ample lumbar support and comfort.

Standout features:

  •         Sport mode: Benefit from an enhanced driving experience with improved acceleration and handling.   
  •         Heated leather-wrapped steering wheel: Keep your hands warm during those cold winter drives.  
  •         A hybrid engine: Adds torque and horsepower while reducing emissions  for a more environmentally friendly drive.   


Last but definitely not least is the top-of-the-line Touring trim. The exterior gets a shiny upgrade with 19-inch black alloy wheels and a 2.0L    hybrid engine. Just like the Sport trim added a new driving mode, the Touring trim has a Dynamic mode for added driving flexibility. You'll still    have access to all the previously mentioned modes as well.

The exterior has a slew of minute details that add to its overall luxury, like ambient light on the door handles, a tailpipe finisher, and black    mirror caps. Of course, you also have a hybrid badge to show off the power and efficiency of your vehicle.

Inside, the Touring trim goes all out with a 12-speaker audio system that  will give you concert-quality sound. The rain-sensing windshield wipers and rear camera washers are two added technology features that will come in handy in inclement weather. Finally, leather upholstery brings everything  together, with heated and ventilated front seats to keep you comfortable all year round.

    Standout features:

  • Hands-free power tailgate: This feature allows you to open the tailgate with just a wave of your foot, making it easier to load and unload items.   
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto: Keep your devices connected without the inconvenience of wires.
