2023 Honda CR-V gets a handsome redesign

Honda recently unveiled the sixth generation of its best-selling SUV, the CR-V. The all-new model is set to raise the bar in terms of design, practicality and everyday usability thanks to refinements in every way that combine to create the perfect all-round SUV. The all-new CR-V combines the sporty values that Honda are known for with the latest driver aids and safety equipment.

Modern evolutionary design

The all-new model retains its familiar silhouette, but with a design evolution that increases its road presence. This includes more purposeful styling at the front, with e:HEV and e:PHEV variants each distinguished by their own exclusive grille design. The headlights combine with new signature daytime running lights to generate a strong visual presence. At the rear, the vertical brake light and turn signal combination is a smart evolution of the recognisable CR-V taillight design.

The evolutionary design also masks an increase in every dimension of the CR-V and it is now wider, longer and taller than the outgoing model. A 40mm longer wheelbase allows for 16mm more rear legroom and 18% more luggage capacity. A focus on high-quality colours, materials and fabrics throughout the cabin ensures a premium look and feel.

Modern powertrains

Globally the CR-V will be offered with the choice of either a full hybrid (e:HEV) or a plug-in hybrid powertrain (e:PHEV). Both variants feature a 2.0-litre four-cylinder direct injection Atkinson-cycle petrol engine which has been updated to enhance efficiency, refinement and dynamic performance across the range.

The e:PHEV utilises the same on-board electric motors as its e:HEV stablemate to provide impressive acceleration, quick charge times and the ability to travel 82km in fully electric mode.

The full hybrid CR-V will feature the most advanced iteration of the brands e:HEV powertrain. A power dense lithium-ion battery and two compact, lightweight electric motors combine with the petrol engine to shift seamlessly between EV, Hybrid and Engine Drive, making it ideally suited to all driving scenarios.

Improved safety technology

An updated suite of Honda Sensing features and new structural components contribute to class-leading active and passive safety. Headlining the improvements is Honda Sensing 360, the company’s all-new omnidirectional safety and driver assistance system, which removes blind spots around the vehicle and contributes to collision avoidance by reducing the burden on the driver.


The all-new CR-V builds upon everything that this iconic model stands for including a progressive design, premium cabin, class-leading levels of safety, practicality and comfort and efficient and responsive performance and the latest iteration promises to be the ultimate SUV package, offering a unique, dynamic and premium product that perfect suits current market demands.

The local introduction and South African specification of the sixth generation CR-V is yet to be confirmed.
