The new generation of the Honda CR-V has hit the market hard, although we had to wait a few months to get to know its most interesting variant, the Honda CR-V Hybrid. For this new generation of Honda CR-V the Japanese manufacturer opted for the complete elimination of diesel engines , first offering a 1.5 Turbo engine that you can know our impressions through the test of the Honda CR-V 1.5 Turbo , and then developing a new hybrid gasoline system capable of dispensing with a gearbox and promising an efficiency level similar to that of a diesel engine.
very soon we will tell you first hand our impressions. But until then, we will discover the details of the CR-V range with this motorization. The new CR-V Hybrid will be priced from € 34,200 in 4 × 2 version and the Comfort access finish. The first customer units of the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid will not arrive until February 2019.
To get an idea of the price range in which the CR-V Hybrid will move, the available finishes are 4: Comfort, Elegance, Lifestyle and Executive. In the case of the version with 4×2 traction, the price range ranges from 34,200 euros for the most modest finish to 40,000 euros for the most complete executive finish. If we choose the New CR-V Hybrid 4×4, the price to pay is from 40,200 euros, reaching 46,850 euros in its most complete version. To get an idea, the price difference between the 4×2 and 4 × 4 versions is around 6,000 euros.

Ahead of the steering wheel sits an all-new instrument binnacle, featuring a large full-color 7-inch TFT-LCD Driver Information Interface (DII) central display, flanked by battery charge status and fuel-level gauges on the hybrid models.
The Honda CR-V Hybrid’s DII includes a large digital speedometer and linear power gauge with a charge status indicator. Integrated into the lower half of the DII is a ‘content zone’, which the driver can scroll through to choose from a variety of information, including navigation instructions, audio track information, smartphone contacts, all-wheel-drive system status, and smart vehicle maintenance information. For 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid, it also features a graphic of the current power flow, indicating the vehicles power source and if the battery is being charged, and an ‘ECO Guide’ to suggest more efficient driving techniques In addition drivers can monitor their efficiency over time with a drive cycle score, earning points depicted by leaf icons in the display, increasing or decreasing as a different stage of fuel economy is achieved.
Scrolling and selecting the information to display in the DII is performed via thumbpad controls on the left spoke of the steering wheel. It gives the driver the capability to scroll through the DII modes and adjust settings, perform alphabetic searches – of contacts or music tracks, for example – as well as select the preferred information to display in the instrument binnacle’s DII. Also on the left spoke of the steering wheel are the integrated Bluetooth®3 HandsFreeLink® telephone controls. The combination of thumbpad controls and DII display in the driver’s forward line-of-sight helps to minimise distractions while underway.
A second thumbpad on the right spoke of the steering wheel operates the adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist system settings.
