Honda Prices 2024 CR-V and Announces New Hybrid Variant
Honda released an updated CR-V in 2023 with refined styling, a much-improved interior, and better tech. More changes are in store for 2024, as Honda plans to release a new hybrid Sport-L trim that slots in between the EX-L and Sport Touring trims.
The Sport L gets leather upholstery, a power liftgate, and a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It rides on 18-inch wheels and comes with black exterior trim. Similar to other automakers, Honda’s guilty of endowing somewhat mundane vehicles with aggressive styling, as the CR-V Hybrid is tuned far more for comfort than performance. That said, the hybrid powertrain has traditionally been more engaging than the straight gas setup, so there’s at least that in its favor.
The hybrid setup delivers 204 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque, and Honda said that the electrified powertrain accounts for more than half of its CR-V sales. The automaker believes hybrids help usher buyers to electric vehicles by familiarizing them with the format while providing a gas engine for peace of mind.
Pricing for the 2024 CR-V took a slight step up, with some models costing $1,000 more than the 2023 SUV. The CR-V LX now starts at $29,705, including a $1,295 destination charge. The range-topping Sport Touring AWD model starts at $40,395 after destination.
