Responsive, refined and more efficient than ever, the new Honda CR-V Hybrid takes SUV motoring to a new level. Combining the practicality and space that the model is renowned for with an advanced petrol/electric powertrain, it’s a smart solution for discerning modern drivers.
Designed to stand out in urban environments, the new CR-V Hybrid is an eye-catching crossover that blends muscular proportions with sporty lines to create a truly sophisticated aesthetic. Wider and taller than its predecessor, it’s aerodynamically styled to provide a sleek, smooth experience and maximise fuel economy. Carefully sculpted bumpers reduce external noise in the cabin, while large wheels with extended arches give an impression of strength. Fitted with a panoramic glass roof too, it connects you to the outdoors by flooding the interior with natural light.
The Honda CR-V Hybrid’s contemporary feel is continued in the cabin, with clean, harmonious lines creating a sense of space and luxurious materials delivering the utmost in comfort. Air and road noise are kept to a minimum, meaning you can enjoy a refined and calm ride, while optional heated front and rear seats keep everyone cosy on chilly days.
The new model’s longer wheelbase results in increased room inside, with rear passengers in particular benefitting from more leg and shoulder room. Despite the hybrid technology, the boot remains impressive too, offering 497 litres and a wide opening for easy loading and unloading. Opt for the power tailgate to open the boot by waving your foot beneath the rear bumper – perfect for when your hands are full.
Hybrid technology seldom comes as advanced as in this clever crossover SUV. A 2.0-litre petrol engine works alongside two electric motors to provide an agile and spirited drive with reduced emissions. With 181bhp at your disposal, you’ll be able to reach 62mph from a standing start in just 8.8 seconds, while a CO2 output of just 120g/km ensures running costs stay low and one eye is kept on the environment. Front-wheel and all-wheel drivetrains are available, enabling you to choose the model best suited for your needs.
The Honda CR-V Hybrid’s intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) enhances the ride further, seamlessly switching between pure electric, hybrid and petrol power. This ensures you’re always travelling at your most efficient. Plus, with the battery being continually recharged through the braking system, there’s no need to stop and plug your vehicle in.
Equipped with the latest in safety technology, the all-new CR-V Hybrid is designed to keep you protected at every turn. Active systems such as the Collision Mitigation Braking System work to help you avoid accidents, while features like Adaptive Cruise Control assist in maintaining a constant cruising speed. There’s even a Driver Attention Monitor to check your alertness and warn you to take a break should it detect signs of fatigue.
In the cabin, your experience is fully connected thanks to a multimedia system with smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Navigate through audio, communication and information options using the 7.0-inch touchscreen, which is intuitively designed for easy operation. Selected trims can also be specified with Head-Up Display, enabling you to access key information and functionality without taking your eyes off the road.
