Honda has announced the prices for the new compact crossover CR-V for 2023, as well as the fuel economy ratings for both hybrid and non-hybrid models. The base trim level has been taken out of the new model, like many other cars these days. This makes it much harder to get into the car than it used to be. The 2023 CR-V EX starts at $32,355, which is $1800 more than the EX from last year and a huge $4310 more than the base LX from last year.
The base model comes with front-wheel drive and a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four engine. All-wheel drive costs an extra $1500. There is also a $35,005 EX-L trim for non-hybrid models that has a bit more equipment, like leather seats and a bigger touchscreen.
The hybrid lineup starts with the $33,695 CR-V Sport, which is a front-wheel-drive hybrid model that wasn't available on the previous-generation CR-V. This means that it gets better mpg ratings than before, with the EPA's combined estimate going up from 38 mpg to 40 mpg. The 2023 CR-V Sport Touring is only available as a hybrid. It is a fully loaded model with 19-inch wheels and an upgraded sound system. It starts at $39,845, which is $800 more than the Touring hybrid model from last year. The CR-V Sport Touring is only available with all-wheel drive and gets 37 mpg on average.
Honda says that the CR-V that isn't a hybrid will be in stores starting on September 22. The hybrid version will go on sale in October.
