2023 Honda CR-V – The brand new 2023 Honda CR-V could come off the cover in the coming year, to provide Honda consumers from the United States brand new models within the compact SUV segment as well as the sub-compact (with the brand-new Honda HR-V) and mid-size (with the 2023 Honda Pilot) options. We have a few details about the upcoming version of America’s top crossover SUV.
2023 Honda CR-V Redesign
A patent-like image depicting the 2023 CR-V has been published on the internet (view via Facebook at Vanhoe Rage). Inspired by these pictures, TopElectricSUV previews the final design of the crossover hybrid. We notice that the new CR-V has a more masculine exterior. A higher radiator grille, massive hexagonal mesh, more air intakes in the lower part of the car the sportier bumper, an angled and taller hood, and slimmer headlamps give the model a more stunning appearance in the front.
The sides are the same, but the brand new CR-V features a more angular greenhouse, which makes it appear more solid and square. It features a clearer shoulder line that begins from the upper edge of the headlamps and extends across the back of the cluster. In the back, the camouflaged test mule (see the photo on TFLcar) features cut-outs that show the repeated L-shaped logo within the lights at the rear. Whatever the shape and direction that the lights will be positioned when they are finalized, anticipate them to have the L-shaped light guide at their outside ends that flow across their shoulder lines, which is similar to those on the 2022 Civic Hatchback (and maybe even BMW’s 8 Series model). The license plate? It should be higher and placed in the middle which is the back of the vehicle.
The next-generation CR-V will be larger than the model currently in production according to a report from Autocar. In Europe, it will make it a superior competitor for its rival, the Skoda Kodiaq (the VW Tiguan’s Czech market counterpart) It is available in seven and five-seat models. To give you an idea the current CR-V measures 179.4 inches in length, 71.6 inches wide, and 64.7 inches (2WD)/65.1 inches high, and it comes with a 103.1-inch wheelbase.
It is expected that the 2023 Honda CR-V could sport an uncluttered interior that is in line with the new brand’s philosophy that is “Simplicity and something.” Honda will need to make a smaller dashboard, and also clean the center console of the CR-V and relocate the infotainment screen, and reduce the number of buttons. The company is likely to put the touchscreen on top of the dashboard which will make it more accessible to drivers, and keep the console tidy. A further significant change is the implementation of a 10.2-inch completely electronic instrument cluster. It is likely the availability of it will be wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto will be made available.
The 2023 CR-V is likely to feature the latest touchscreen infotainment technology which will incorporate more Google services. On September 23rd, 2021, Honda announced that its future models would incorporate Google’s in-vehicle connectivity service and that it will debut the first model in North America in the second third of 2022. The date of release and the worldwide significance suggests that the first model of the new Google device could include the new CRV. With Google included, consumers can use Google Assistant, Google Maps as well as Google Play directly through native apps that are installed on the vehicle’s infotainment system.
Honda is expected to launch the brand-new Honda Sensing 360 system, an array of different driver-assistive and safety technologies in the next-generation Honda CR-V. Honda Sensing 360 should be able to better perceive the surroundings of the vehicle as compared with 2022 Honda Sensing in the current CRV. Honda Sensing, Honda, claims that it offers an expanded range of sensors within the vehicle. Honda announced it will announce in 2021 that it would first implement the new universal safety and driver-assistive system in China by 2022 and plans to integrate it as part of the standard equipment available within the U.S. by 2030.
On the powertrain side, Honda has confirmed it will introduce the brand-new CRV (globally) with a Hybrid and Plug-in-Hybrid model. Honda will be upgrading its third-gen two-motor hybrid system to increase efficiency and efficiency. In the present CR-V Hybrid, the powertrain includes a 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine with two motors using flat wire technology, resulting in an overall power of 212 horsepower. One motor is a 181 horsepower starter motor and generator, and another motor is for propulsion. The vehicle is used most of the time as the series hybrid. The propulsion motor powers the wheels, while the engine generates power for the traction battery, and/or that motor to propel. The system may change to a parallel hybrid mode whenever it senses the need for additional power.
Similar to the current model, the sixth-gen CR-V will likely adopt the plug-in hybrid model across the world however, its availability in the U.S. is looking unlikely. Honda sold more than 56,000 vehicles of the CR-V Hybrid in the United States in 2021 which is a record, suggesting that buyers are increasingly looking for electric options. Honda has revealed that it will launch the next version of BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles) beginning in 2024 with Honda Prologue from 2024. For the U.S., the strategy is to jump from into BEVs after Hybrid models.
