2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid

New 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid prices start from under £30,000

2019 Honda CR-V HybridPrice for the new 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid have been confirmed: it will start from £29,105 and Honda dealers will take their first deliveries from February 2019.

The ‘electrified’ CR-V follows the petrol-powered CR-Vs launched back in the summer, and is the fuel-saving option from the range. Honda will not be offering a diesel version of the new CR-V.

Because the hybrid battery gear takes up a bit of space in the back, Honda’s only offering it in five-seat guise. Buyers will, however, be able to choose between two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. They’ll all come with an eCVT automatic gearbox.

Honda proudly tells us the Honda Sensing suite of safety tech comes as standard on all models. This means every CR-V Hybrid will feature auto emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and even a system that helps stop drivers running off the road.

SE models will build upon base S grade with parking sensors and a rear-view camera. SR and EX add blind spot warning, with SR offering leather interior, active cornering lights and keyless go.

EX is the range-topper and has a head-up display, panoramic glass roof, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and a hands-free electric tailgate.

The 2WD range comprises S, SE and SR, with 4WD stretching from SE, SR and EX. Prices are, on average, around £3,100 higher than the 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo base model, although not only is the 2.0-litre a high-tech hybrid, it also has the automatic gearbox as standard.

“The CR-V Hybrid is the first step in achieving our objective of electrified powertrains accounting for two-thirds of our European sales by 2025,” said Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK.

“In a marketplace that is going to become increasingly competitive as time goes on, the CR-V is well placed to achieve strong sales results and we have high expectations for this car.”
