2023 Honda CR-V Looks Sharp in First Official Teaser

Published on May 24, 2022 in New Models by Guillaume Rivard

The Honda CR-V is the second most popular SUV on the market (behind the Toyota RAV4) and many customers are eagerly awaiting the next generation. Remember, for the first time ever, it will be available as a hybrid in Canada.

That model is in fact featured in the first official teaser for the new 2023 Honda CR-V released today.

The pictures show a completely redesigned front end including a new bumper with revised intakes, a larger and more rugged-looking grille, as well as slimmer headlights. Overall, the design is slightly different and more attractive than the Chinese-spec variant that surfaced online several days ago.

In the rear, the taillights sport a fresh new look but continue to stretch vertically and horizontally. The bumper is more prominent and nicely integrates the exhaust tips, while the CR-V badge remains in the lower left corner of the liftgate instead of moving to the upper centre like we see on a growing number of vehicles. The spoiler at the top seems to be a bit bigger, but the rear window is still relatively small.

We don’t have any other details to share with you, although Honda promises increased versatility, more capability and a sportier driving experience. The optional hybrid system will be more advanced than the one found on the CR-V Hybrid south of the border, which generates 212 horsepower and achieves about 5.9 L/100 km in the city.

The official debut of the 2023 Honda CR-V should take place in a few weeks ahead of the start of sales this fall. The smaller HR-V and larger Pilot will both be redesigned for 2023, as well. As usual, keep following The Car Guide to make sure you don’t miss anything.
