Engineered for an effortless drive
Honda Hybrid Performance in the new CR-V.
The CR-V Hybrid selects the optimum mode to always provide a responsive, efficient drive.
It has an Atkinson-type, 2.0-litre petrol engine and two electric motors – one electric propulsion motor and one electric generator motor enabling it to perform in petrol, electric or hybrid modes. The CR-V, rather than using a conventional transmission, is built with a single fixed-gear ratio giving the driver a seamless flow of power and confidence – it is the hybrid you can feel.
It thinks for itself
The intelligent Multi-Mode Drive always delivers high performance and efficiency.
i-MMD technology ensures the car always uses its energy in the most efficient way. This means CR-V Hybrid seamlessly alternates between its three power modes: Electric Drive, Hybrid Drive or Engine Drive. When setting off in Electric Drive the car emits an acoustic alert - it is that quiet - and under certain driving conditions, if you wish, you can manually extend the Electric Drive period by pressing the fascia-mounted EV Mode button. If a greater dynamic feel is desired, the Sport Mode provides a more engaged driving experience.
The 2.0 litre Atkinson Cycle petrol engine works with two electric motors – one propulsion and one generator motor – controlled by its intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) system.
The CR-V seamlessly selects the appropriate drive mode.
The CR-V in Electric Drive
In this mode you are running 100% on smooth, silent electric power - for example the instantaneous response when setting off from traffic lights.
The CR-V in Hybrid Drive
Hybrid drive is when the petrol engine and electric motor combine for optimum power and economy such as while accelerating on the move.
The CR-V in Engine Drive
Engine drive occurs during sustained, higher-speed cruising when the petrol engine is powering the car.
Enjoy the drive, while the Honda CR-V selects the most dynamic and efficient way to take you to your destination.
It's an innovative system that allows the petrol engine to operate within its optimal power range as often as possible. Combined with ECON mode, the result is an extremely fuel-efficient vehicle.
Drive is selected via the transmisison button on the console.
At certain times, the CR-V will use two motors and a petrol engine to achieve best performance – a triple boost – while maintaining the most fuel-efficient drive.
Honda SENSING is a suite of advanced features designed to keep you and your passengers safe.
Collision Mitigation Braking System
If there is a possibility of a collision with a vehicle or a pedestrian this feature will alert you to the danger as well as reducing your speed to help minimise the severity of any impact.
Lane Departure Warning
If the car moves out of its lane without indicating, alerts will flash and sound to help bring the drift to your attention.
Road Departure Mitigation
A windscreen mounted camera detects whether the car is veering off the road and uses the Electric Power Steering to apply subtle corrections to keep your vehicle in its lane. In certain conditions, it can also apply the brakes.
Lane Keeping Assist System
This helps keep you in the middle of your lane, providing a less stressful driving experience by reducing the need for steering correction movements and driving effort on the motorway.
Traffic Sign Recognition
The Traffic Sign Recognition System identifies traffic signs and relays this information to you via a visual display. Two signs can be displayed at any one time.Intelligent Speed Limiter
Intelligent Speed Limiter
Cleverly combines the existing adjustable speed limiter function with the Traffic Sign Recognition system to automatically set the speed limit to that which the Traffic Sign Recognition system detects.
intelligent - Adaptive Cruise Control
This feature detects if a vehicle in a neighbouring lane intends to cut in front of you and adjusts will adjust your speed in advance. It also helps you maintain the distance between you and the car in front, so you don’t have to manually change your speed.
