2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The fifth-generation Honda CR-V arrived in 2017 with a new look, powertrain options, and tech. Just a few years later, in 2020, the CR-V gained its first-ever hybrid variant. With the fifth-gen CR-V and its hybrid version still relatively fresh, we expect the 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid to be a carryover model.

The current CR-V Hybrid boasts a mature look with smooth body lines, a simple grille, wide headlights, bold front bumper air inlets, black body cladding, and sleek L-shaped taillights connected by a chrome strip. As a carryover model, we expect this unoffensive design to remain unchanged in the 2021 CR-V Hybrid.

The grown-up look and feel of the current CR-V continue inside. Here, the CR-V Hybrid treats passengers to a sleek cabin that lacks much of the stylistic drama many of today’s crossovers have. Instead, the CR-V features a simple black dash with tasteful chrome trim, a gloss-black infotainment screen bezel, a lower-dash-mounted gear shifter, and available premium materials. We expect this simple and classy interior to remain the same in the 2021 CR-V Hybrid.

The current CR-V Hybrid’s powertrain combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine electric motors for 212 net system horsepower. This power heads out to all four wheels via standard all-wheel drive. This powertrain delivers 40 miles per gallon city, 35 highway, and 38 combined. The 2021 CR-V Hybrid will likely continue with the same powertrain.

Thanks to “Good” ratings in all crash safety tests, “Good”-rated LED reflector headlights on the Touring trim, and “Superior” standard automatic emergency braking, the current CR-V is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. Other standard safety gear includes lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlights. We anticipate the safety gear and ratings to remain unchanged in the 2021 CR-V Hybrid.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date for the 2021 CR-V Hybrid, but we expect it to arrive soon.

The 2021 CR-V Hybrid will range from $31,680 to $37,470 (destination fees included).

This hybrid crossover will battle the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, Ford Escape Hybrid, and Toyota Venza.
