Your trim choices for the 2024 CR-V Hybrid are Sport, Sport-L, and Sport Touring. Their powertrain pairs a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors to yield 204 horsepower. Front-wheel drive comes standard on the Sport and Sport-L, which are both eligible for all-wheel drive (AWD). At the top of the lineup, the Sport Touring comes only with AWD. With either drivetrain, an electronic continuously variable transmission (E-CVT) manages the gear ratios.
The EPA has determined that the FWD CR-V Hybrid achieves 43 mpg around town and 36 mpg on the highway. With AWD, the city rating changes to 40 mpg while the highway estimate becomes 34 mpg. For cargo space, you’ll get 39.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 76.5 cubic feet with that seat folded down. Towing up to 1,000 pounds (total weight of trailer and its contents) is possible.
The Sport trim gets a mix of basic and upscale features, with that list including heated front seats, proximity keyless entry, a moonroof (power), cloth seats, push-button start, automatic climate control with two zones, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a power (10 ways) driver’s seat, a 7-inch digital instrument display, LED exterior lighting with automatic headlights, rear privacy glass, heated power-adjustable exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, rear-seat heat/AC ducts, and 18-inch wheels.
We’ve mentioned the debuting Sport-L (and its leather seats, wireless device charging, and programmable-height power tailgate) in the intro. It represents the middle of the pack with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a driver’s position memory system, chrome exhaust finishers, and a four-way power front passenger seat. The Sport Touring takes the top spot with standard AWD, a hands-free tailgate, a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and 19-inch wheels.
Honda Sensing is installed on every CR-V Hybrid. This suite of advanced driver-assist technologies consists of automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic monitoring, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, traffic jam assist, traffic sign recognition, and a driver attention monitor. The Sport-L and Sport Touring are also equipped with front and rear parking sensors and low-speed braking control. In addition, all trims have a multi-angle rearview monitor with dynamic guidelines, anti-lock brakes, a full set of airbags, vehicle stability assist with traction control, and a rear seat reminder.
A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system serves the base CR-V Sport, controlling its sound system (six speakers), smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth, and text messaging assistant. The other two trims move up to a 9-inch touchscreen system with added features: wireless smartphone connect and SiriusXM satellite radio. As for audio upgrades, the Sport-L gets another pair of speakers for a total of eight, while the Sport Touring pleases music fans with its 12-speaker Bose sound system. The Sport Touring gets standard navigation as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot and HondaLink subscription services.
