Breaking Up With Honda

This is our 3rd CRV and up until a month ago, a great ride, and of course the no drama you expect and love with a CRV. HOWEVER, the vehicle, with 5200 miles, has succumbed to the dreaded "Sticky Steering" syndrome which causes a distracting amount of over correcting when driving, especially on roads with mild curves. I've loved...

5.0

More comfortable ride then past HRVs

I traded in my 2021 Honda CRV, this 2023 CRV rides smoother and looks more pleasing to me. Good on Gas too! I live in the Poconos, some roads are not smooth this car drives over these roads and gives me a more comfortable ride.

2023 Honda CR-V review: Our expert's take

By Brian Normile

The verdict: The redesigned 2023 Honda CR-V is an improvement over the outgoing fifth-generation SUV, with a much more user-friendly interior and improved hybrid performance.

Versus the competition: After years of trending downward as the competition got better and it stayed the same, the all-new CR-V rights the ship and is once again a choice worthy of its historically strong sales.

Honda’s CR-V compact SUV is a popular choice with consumers — it’s consistently been Honda’s bestselling vehicle — but among Cars.com’s editors, its popularity has waned as other compact SUVs have gotten better. In our last three compact SUV comparison tests since the fifth-generation CR-V debuted as a 2017 model, the CR-V has had worse and worse finishes: second out of seven vehicles in 2017; fourth out of seven in 2019; and dead last in a field of six in 2021. On top of that, a head-to-head comparison of the 2021 CR-V hybrid and 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid saw the Honda take another loss. This decline in performance had more to do with improved competition, but it wasn’t a good sign for the CR-V.

The new CR-V’s exterior and interior design takes after the Civic compact car, and the 2023 CR-V hybrid also gets a new, more powerful powertrain that makes slightly more horsepower and low-end torque. The lineup consists of four trim levels: two gas-only models and two hybrid variants. The EX is the base gas-powered model, while the next most affordable is the Sport, the cheaper of the two hybrids. The EX-L is the most well-equipped gas model, while the Sport Touring hybrid tops that range. Honda said the entry-level LX version of prior generations might return at some point.
