Date Posted : February 28, 2023

The new 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid is all -new including a brand new fourth generation 2 motor Hybrid system.

It's good, it's really good, but...

The all-new 2023 Honda CR-V Touring Hybrid comes standard in Canada with the new hybrid system featuring the new, more refined 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and Honda's new fourth-generation two-motor hybrid-electric system, featuring a pair of electric motors now arranged side-by-side in a parallel axis layout. Perfect for daily life or weekend escapes, the new CR-V is longer and wider with premium proportions and a significantly broader stance, further advancing the Honda rugged design direction for light trucks with a low horizontal beltline and a long, powerful front end. Honda's most popular SUV backs up its strong new looks with a more fun-to-drive personality, more confident and refined dynamics, and increased torque and capability. The fourth-generation, two-motor hybrid-electric system made at TMP-O features a new arrangement, switching from coaxial motors of the same size stacked on top of each other to a two-motor parallel axis system with engines of different sizes mounted side-by-side. The new system also includes new high- and low-speed lockup ratios for direct engine drive on the highway and in the city. Altogether, the new design improves responsiveness for a sportier driving feel and creates a more relaxed driving environment at highway speeds. It also allows for a higher sustained top speed, improves fuel economy and enables over 450 kgs of towing.
