Large Guy's Review of the 2024 CR-V Hybrid
2024 Honda CR-V Sport Touring Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid EVT)
I have had my 2024 CR-V Sport Touring for a week now, with over 600 miles on it. I have driven mostly highway (55+mph) in the past week. Here is my honest review as a larger person: I am 6'5 and on the larger side. I chose the CR-V because I wanted a hybrid SUV and couldn't fit in the RAV-4 Hybrid, and I wanted a reliable vehicle so the American and Korean brands were out. In terms of … room inside, the CR-V is as good as it gets. I have PLENTY of headroom and legroom. However, the seats are on the narrow/short side, so thigh support is mid at best. But 3+hr trips haven't been an issue. The belt buckles are large for some reason, so wider folk take note. The second row legroom and headroom are comparable to my relative's 2018 Toyota Highlander. And the cargo space is adequate for small families or single people. The height of the floor makes loading cargo very easy. Interior space: 8.5/10 As far as technology, I came from a 2007 Camry so this is a HUGE upgrade. Wireless Apple CarPlay works seamlessly. The backup camera is on the grainy side, and the wireless charger doesn't always work properly (iPhone 14 Pro Max for reference). The safety features are excellent, and the driving aids are marvelous. I love the (semi) hands-free driving feature on the highway with the adaptive cruise control, it saves my hands and feet from cramping on long road trips. I also love the hands-free power tailgate for when my hands are full, but I rarely use it ( I mostly see it as a gimmick to show people). Technology: 9/10 As far as driving dynamics, the acceleration from 0-60 is great, and from 40-80 is even better. The engine is incredibly smooth and the transmission is quiet and seamless. I have driven exclusively in normal mode and it has been perfect. The transition from EV to hybrid (gas engine) mode is almost undetectable. Steering is incredibly fluid and easy in small parking lots. The ride floats over road imperfections like nothing I've ever driven before, even with the 19-inch wheels. Driving dynamics: 9.5/10 Fuel economy is the main reason people buy hybrids, and the CR-V Hybrid hasn't disappointed me so far. Over the past week, I have driven mostly highway miles and I have been averaging 34.1mpg, which is the EPA rated highway mpg. The highest real-time mileage I have gotten was 56.7mpg (fresh tank of gas on a short, mostly downhill commute in B-mode), but my daily average has hovered right around 33mpg. I am very pleased with these numbers. I do not live in a crowded city, so I doubt I will reach the 40mpg city rating. No worries for me but if you are expecting RAV-4 Hybrid numbers, that and the Ford Escape Hybrid are really your only options. Their hybrid systems are MUCH different from the Honda's, but I honestly prefer the Honda system due to its refinement and smooth, quiet operation. If your daily commute requires you to drive 55+mph, just know your mpg will be closer to the 34mpg rating rather than the 40mpg city rating. Interestingly though, I have been driving between 55-65mph and the car will switch to EV mode, which really improves fuel economy. I have found that the perfect speeds to drive for maximum fuel economy are 15-30mph and 55-65mph. Overall, it is an excellent experience in my opinion. Fuel Economy: 9/10 Overall, I LOVE this car. For $41k, I am not sure if you can get much of a better overall package. Sure, I do wish it had cooled front seats and a 360-degree camera, but I have found that these features are nice but unnecessary for most people like me. A few more small things: 1. The air conditioning is excellent, even with the all-black interior in 90-degree heat. I find my hands freezing often. 2. Do not get the Honda OEM all-weather floor mats, they have no coverage and dealers are charging insane markups for accessories. Buy Smartliners like I did, $230 for first+second row all-weather floor liners and a cargo mat. Love them and definitely worth it. 3. The rear doors open 90-degrees so be aware that it's easier to ding cars in tight parking spaces. 4. Heated steering wheel and heated seats work amazingly, and heat up quick. 5. Be aware of the gloss-black trim EVERYWHERE in the Sport Touring, it collects dust, fingerprints, and can scratch easily. 6. The interior design and feel is almost comparable to a luxury vehicle. The leather seats and steering wheel feel 10X better than any Toyota I've been in (and I've been in them all - new and used). Lastly, don't believe anyone who says they are getting anything below 30mpg in their 2023-24 CR-V Hybrid. They HAVE to be flooring it and driving 15+mph over the speed limit everywhere. If you drive it like normal, you should see great MPGs. If you drive it specifically to squeeze out maximum MPG, you likely will. If this is on your list of cars you are looking at, consider it more, especially if you are tall. Larger folk, take note of the small seats. Overall rating: 9.5/10
