Review 2023 Honda CR-V Specs

A turbocharged engine gives the standard 2023 Honda CR-V excellent performance right off the line. Thanks to the turbo, the engine spools out authoritative power far sooner than the RAV4, which isn't available with any kind of forced induction. The result is more laborious acceleration and a perceptible lack of refinement when compared to the composed, confident new CR-V.

The 2023 CR-V is also available as a hybrid -- in fact, most trims now come standard with the fuel-saving technology. And while there is a RAV4 Hybrid on offer, it falls short of the Honda when it comes to fuel economy. The CR-V Hybrid mpg ratings can reach as high as 43 miles per gallon during city driving and 36 highway mpg, easily outpacing a comparable RAV4 model.1

Turbocharged power or hybrid efficiency -- whichever your preference, the data makes it clear that you'll be better off in a 2023 CR-V than the new RAV4. Verify this claim for yourself with a CR-V test-drive near Mobile.

2023 Honda CR-V Interior Dimensions & Features Compared

Looking for abundant cabin space in your next SUV? If so, that's exactly what you'll find in the 2023 CR-V interior, which Honda engineers designed with a focus on space efficiency. Their efforts are made clear as you lounge in the back seat or load up the hatch: interior volume for both occupants and cargo is unmatched. By comparison, the 2023 RAV4 falls short of this exceptionally spacious new Honda SUV.

Other features further underscore the appeal of the CR-V. Heated front seats, for instance -- you'll find these toasty thrones come standard on every CR-V for sale near Mobile. Even here in Alabama, cold mornings aren't unheard of -- and this feature is invaluable when the weather turns chilly.

If you have an ear for good music, you can also upgrade to a CR-V Sport Touring Hybrid for its Bose® Premium Sound System, which features a dozen speakers strategically located throughout the cabin for an unmatched listening experience. Luxuries like this continue to differentiate the CR-V from the RAV4 and other competitors.
