2023 Honda CR-V Pricing More Expensive Than Before, Hybrid Gets 40 MPG

Honda has announced pricing for the new 2023 CR-V compact crossover, along with fuel-economy ratings for the hybrid and nonhybrid models. The new model follows the trend of many other vehicles these days and eliminates the base trim level, meaning the point of entry is far higher than before. The 2023 CR-V EX starts at $32,355, which is $1800 more than last year’s EX and a whopping $4310 more than last year’s base LX.

Front-wheel drive and a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four are standard, with all-wheel drive a $1500 option. Among nonhybrid models, there’s also a $35,005 EX-L trim with a bit more equipment including leather upholstery and a larger touchscreen.

The hybrid lineup starts with the $33,695 CR-V Sport, which introduces a front-wheel-drive hybrid model that wasn’t available on the previous-generation CR-V. This means it achieves higher mpg ratings than before, with the EPA combined estimate rising from 38 mpg to 40 mpg. The 2023 CR-V Sport Touring, a fully loaded model with equipment including 19-inch wheels, an upgraded audio system also comes only as a hybrid. It starts at $39,845, or $800 more than last year’s hybrid Touring model. The CR-V Sport Touring comes only with all-wheel drive and is rated at 37 mpg combined.

Honda says that the nonhybrid CR-V will arrive at dealerships starting September 22, with the hybrid set to go on sale in October.
