1. The Power to Take You from Urban to Rural

As the most fuel-efficient automaker in America, Honda knows how to take you further than ever on a gallon of gas without sacrificing a single drop of driving excitement in the process. Case in point: 2021 CR-V Hybrid’s sophisticated and spirited powerplant. The CR-V Hybrid pairs a lively 2.0-liter, DOHC iVTEC Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine with an electric motor and electronic CVT transmission that delivers an impressive 212 total system horsepower*. Combine this with the CR-V Hybrid’s standard all-wheel drive and you’ve got a surefooted and fun-to-drive SUV that gets an outstanding, EPA-estimated* 40 mpg in the city and no less impressive 35 mpg on the highway, for a combined 38 mpg overall.

The CR-V’s exclusive Hybrid Driver Information Interface lets you monitor the engine’s output. With three unique modes: ECON, Sport, and EV Drive, you’re in total control of the CR-V Hybrid’s performance characteristics. You can also toss your “range-anxiety” worries out the window because the CR-V Hybrid’s gasoline engine and regenerative braking automatically recharge the battery pack as you drive. 

2. “V” Stands for “Versatile” 

While the letter “V” in the CR-V’s name technically stands for “Vehicle,” it could just as easily stand for “Versatile,” too. The CR-V’s modern, spacious, and meticulously crafted interior with its 60/40 split, fold-down rear seats give you plenty of ways to configure its nearly 103 cubic feet of passenger volume to suit your needs. With the rear seats folded, you’ll have a commodious 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space* for all your gear. Even with the rear seats up, you’ll have nearly 40 cubic feet of cargo space* at your disposal.

If you’ve got your hands full, you can magically access all this inner space with the available Hands-Free Power Liftgate. Just wave your foot underneath the rear bumper to open or close the height-programmable liftgate with ease. 

This exceptional interior versatility and advanced Real-Time AWD™ make the CR-V Hybrid simply the best SUV for camping, bar none. It’s ready to take you over the mountains and through the woods on that much-anticipated getaway to one of the many top camping spots in Arizona, where you’re surrounded by some of the most awesome natural beauty on the planet.
