2021 Honda CR-V: New Design

Honda UK announced details today about the revised 2021 CR-V hybrid. Rolling into dealerships from the start of December, the mid-sized SUV will now only be sold as a hybrid. The CR-V now has blue-ringed H badges to signify its position as an exclusively hybrid model. Updates also include a new silver finish applied to enhance the visual appearance of the centre consol. 18in alloy wheels come as standard across the range, whilst tinted windows and wireless phone-charging comes further up the spec-tree.

Mechanically, the CR-V retains Honda's responsive and highly efficient advanced hybrid powertrain technology, which is built around two electric motors, an Atkinson-cycle petrol engine, and an innovative fixed-gear transmission. The CR-V is also pretty good at sipping fuel, boasting around 40mpg depending on the model and producing around 151g/km of CO2. Further revisions include tweaks to the suspension for better handling and comfort, while the steering is also improved for slow-speed manoeuvrability.
