The Honda CR-V has an incredible record of global sales. More than 9 million have been sold worldwide in 150 countries since 1995. In the USA, a total of 384,168 CR-Vs were sold in 2019 alone (wheelsjoint.com). In the SUV market, it ranks second only to the Toyota RAV4.

Launched in Japan in 1995, it became one of the pioneer models of what has become the highly popular Compact SUV segment. The CR-V quickly established itself as a favorite with customers looking for a sturdy, reliable vehicle with low maintenance costs.

The core of the vehicle’s popularity is its combination of efficiency, functionality, simple style, safety and legendary Honda quality. The average estimate for repair bills for the first and second years is $ZERO! The average maintenance cost for the first year of driving is $190. Depreciation is minimal as well, accounting for only 10.582% its first year and 8.88% its second year.

The 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid crossover retains the same basic design and features as its 2020 predecessor. Few changes have been implemented, as 2020 was the year when the CR-V received its 4th Generation makeover and the hybrid version debuted. The 2021 hybrid uses a 2.0L 4-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine mated with 2 electric motors and a small 1.4kWh battery. Together, they generate 212hp and 232 lb-ft of torque, and provide what is considered the best engine performance in its segment.

With a 0 to 60 sprint of 7.5 seconds, it is not what any reviewer would call a fast car. But what its drivers like is its linear power delivery; it has no gears to shift, making the drive incredibly smooth. And the vehicle’s torque output of 232 lb-ft with its gas engine and two electric motors working bests the Ford Escape Hybrid and the Toyota RAV 4 Hybrid, its two closest competitors. Rather than a super fast family hauler, it’s a comfy city cruiser which gets you where you want to go, smoothly, safely and inexpensively.

Fuel Economy is excellent. The EPA estimates the 2021 CR-V will provide you with 40mpg city, 35mpg highway and 38mpg combined. The hybrid’s total range is a stunning 532 miles.

There are 3 CR-V Hybrid trims: Hybrid EX (MSRP: $30,560); Hybrid EX-L (MSRP: $33,150); and Hybrid Touring (MSRP: $36,350).

The CR-V offers one of the largest cargo bays in its segment, with 39.2ft3 of cargo space. Car & Driver reviewers managed to fit 10 carry-on sized suitcases behind the rear seat. With seats folded down, the Honda CR-V Hybrid offers best-in-class luggage space.

In 2020, the CR-V earned a 5-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and it was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), The Honda also comes standard with a suite of driver assistance technology which includes: standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking; standard lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning; standard adaptive cruise control.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.

The CR-V Hybrid is a U.S. News & World Report 2021 Best Compact SUV For The Money winner. And for 2020, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com named it Best Buy: Compact SUV.
