Everything We Know About the 2023 Honda CR-V
A significant modification will be made to the 2023 Honda CR-V. Since the current model debuted in 2017, rivals like the Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, and Subaru Forester have all had a chance to catch up to Honda’s best-seller. Although we still believe it to be one of the best purchases in its market, we are not opposed to changing our minds.

We expect a new interior, and that’s exactly what we’re getting. Only it isn’t all that new. Just like with the new HR-V, Honda is lifting the new CR-V’s dashboard layout straight out of the current Civic. Now we get that having one dashboard for multiple cars is a great way to save costs and, hopefully, pass the savings onto consumers. But there is a problem with this way of doing things.
The worst offender in this category recently has been BMW. Inside, the new 2 Series and 3 Series are virtually indistinguishable from one another. Because of this, both automobiles lose some of their personality, which is precisely the issue Honda is running through. Though we’re anticipating the larger, more expensive, and more significant CR-V will have nicer inside materials and more technology, we’re already dissatisfied with the design’s copy-and-paste approach.
The option for a third row will be one of the interior’s further improvements. The car is larger than its predecessor, as seen in spy photos, and it seems sense that Honda would provide a third row as an option for individuals who carry more people than cargo. I hope that space back there doesn’t get too crowded. The base 1.5-liter turbocharged engine is also anticipated to mostly remain unaltered. The new CR-V will be available with both front- and all-wheel drive, similar to the HR-V. Expect a starting price that is a little bit higher than the just over $28,000 MSRP of the current CR-V.
