The new 2023 Honda CR-V eHEV has been finally spied testing, fully dressed in thick black-and-white camouflage. Unlike the regular CR-V model, the eHEV looks more attractive, and it comes with a new design that isn’t hard to decipher, along with the possible expansion of its dimensions. From the information that’s available, the manufacturer will also make some drastic changes inside, and buyers can expect a plethora of standard features.
According to news, the forthcoming SUV will use Honda’s advanced hybrid technology as the standard for the first time. Moreover, the same eHEV system should also be available on the all-new Jazz model as well, delivering great output and even better fuel efficiency.
2023 Honda CR-V eHEV Exterior
As we can see from the first spy shots, the Honda CR-V eHEV will arrive with a new look. First of all, it looks much bigger than the regular model with a more aggressive front end. Honda did a great job adding more wider black grille and the new headlights with better graphics.
The hood is also stylized with some new lines, providing a more sporty stance. Unfortunately, right now, we don’t know what will be changed on the back, but buyers can expect no less attractive rear end. From spy shots, we noticed new taillights and a much wider bumper.
On the inside, the 2023 Honda CR-V eHEV will look more modern than the standard one. Proportionally it’s bigger, and it should be more comfortable as well. We expect this SUV to offer room for five passengers in two rows and enough space for your accessories. On the technology side, the Honda CR-V eHEV will offer as standard the latest 7-inch Driver Information Interface that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Active Noise Cancellation is available as well, reducing low-frequency noise in the interior and minimize the intrusion of engine noise into the cabin.
2023 Honda CR-V eHEV Engine Specs
The forthcoming 2023 Honda CR-V eHEV will probably use the same hybrid system that will be under the Jazz model. This system combines two electric motors, a power control unit, an Atkinson-cycle petrol engine, and a lithium-ion battery. It also comes with an innovative gear transmission, delivering high levels of refinement, responsiveness and efficiency.
The CR-V e:HEV uses a 2.0-liter i-VTEC petrol engine that produces 145 hp and powerful 185 horses with electric motor. The petrol-electric powertrain, will be able to run from zero to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds in FWD specifications. However, the AWD figures will drop to 8.9 seconds.
Release Date and Price
The forthcoming 2023 Honda CR-V eHEV will reportedly arrive next year, featuring more attractive styling than the regular one. As we noticed from the first spy shots, this SUV features a sophisticated exterior design with sharp contours and signature headlight graphics.
Right now, we don’t know how much this model will cost, but expect it to be a couple of thousand dollars more than the regular variant.
