New 2024 Honda CR-V Turbo, Interior, Colors – Honda has given the 2024 CR-V a complete redesign inside and out to better compete in the highly cutthroat compact SUV market. The redesigned CR-V, which is larger and has more inside room, is set to improve upon its already impressive utility. A 9.0-inch touchscreen entertainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard, and the rest of the cabin is tastefully designed to fit the vehicle’s cutting-edge technology. Every CR-V comes standard with a suite of driver aids, including blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. The base engine is a turbo-four producing 190 hp, but a hybrid system producing 204 hp is available as an upgrade. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive can be combined. Until we get after the wheel of a 2024 CR-V, we won’t know if Honda’s claims that it provides a more engaging and polished driving experience are accurate.
The sixth generation of Honda’s compact SUV, the CR-V, will begin with the 2024 model year. It’s more spacious inside, has a sleeker design, and is outfitted with more excellent amenities, not to mention that it looks completely new on the outside. Honda claims that it has improved upon the previous model’s continuously variable automatic gearbox (CVT) and all-wheel-drive system, as well as the basic turbo-four engine, which is now quicker and more efficient. The new CR-improved V handles and rides better because its suspension parts are better tuned, its frame is more robust, and the front and rear tracks are more comprehensive.
New 2024 Honda CR-V Redesign
Honda’s marketing for the updated CR-V uses tired clichés like “rugged and sophisticated.” Although not as creative in their wording, the Passport TrailSport and the Ridgeline pickup are clear inspirations for this vehicle. Long, sloping shoulders meet a brand-new L-shaped taillight cluster that extends from the massive grille at the front of the car. The grilles on the EX and EX-L trims are gloss black with chrome surrounds, while those on the Sport and Sport Touring trims are gloss black mesh. Their rectangular exhausts further distinguish the two latter. A roof-mounted spoiler is shared on all models, with a matte black finish on the Sport and a gloss black finish on the Sport Touring. The three base models ride on 18-inch wheels with a Berlina Black finish, while the Sport Touring upgrades to a set of 19-inch split five-spoke alloys.
The official Honda CR-V colors haven’t been revealed, but the debut vehicle has been shown off in what seems like a new dark blue and two shades of gray. Common Honda colors like white, black, and red should show up. The drastic alterations made here result in a larger car. The 2024 CR-V is now 2.7 inches longer overall and has a wheelbase that’s 1.6 inches longer. The redesigned layout allows for an additional 0.45 inches of breadth. It’s 184.8 inches long, 106.3 inches wide, 73.4 inches tall, and has a wheelbase of 106.3 inches. The CR-exact V’s weight has not been made public, but it is likely to be a little heavier than the starting weight of 3,337 for the model it replaces.
The air vents on the upscale Honda CR-V are concealed under a honeycomb-textured inlay that spans the whole dashboard. A 7.0-inch touchscreen, accessible via the steering wheel, provides access to multiple menus and displays information alongside an analog speedometer. Honda claims the new CR-driving V’s posture and supportive front seats cut down on driver fatigue on lengthy trips. Rear passengers may stretch out in reclined seats with an extra 0.6 inches of legroom compared to the outgoing CR-V, while front passengers can use the spacious center console storage. Behind the second row, there is space for 36 cubic feet of cargo, or 39 cubic feet if the load floor is lowered on gas-only models.
A 7.0-inch touchscreen controls the CR-infotainment V system on the EX and Sport models. In addition to supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the system also includes physical volume and tuning knobs. There is a wireless 9.0-inch touchscreen available on the EX-L and Sport Touring variants that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The larger display doesn’t have a tuning knob, but it does include a volume knob and built-in navigation, as well as two USB-C connections for passengers in the back and wireless phone charging. The CR-V Sport Touring, the highest trim level, is the only place to get the 12-speaker Bose sound system.
This latest version of Honda’s CR-V crossover unites the previous generation’s conventional and hybrid models under a single name. In the EX and EX-L trims, the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine borrowed from the Civic Si produces 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque, while in the base model, it generates 184 hp and 180 lb-ft. The latter has a greater spread between 1,700 and 5,000 rpm, coming 300 rpm earlier than before. This powerplant is mated to a front-wheel drive system and a CVT. In the Sport and Sport Touring trims, the engine size is raised to 2.0 liters, but the turbocharger is disabled. A new two-motor side-by-side hybrid system is combined with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle motor. Using the ISO net measurement, the system produces 204 horsepower, an increase of 3 horsepower over the previous hybrid CR-V, and 247 pound-feet of torque.
All-wheel drive is still an available extra on lower grades but is standard on the Sport Touring. Along with the usual Normal, Econ, and Snow modes, all-wheel drive now comes with a brand-new Hill Descent Control. The Sport mode is also available on the Sport and Sport Touring versions. With its 1.5-liter turbo variants, the 2024 CR-V should achieve the same 28/34/20 mpg city/highway/combined as the current crossover. However, with its new hybrid system, the Sport and Sport Touring should achieve greater efficiency than the 40/35/38 mpg of the 2024 CR-V Hybrid.
New 2024 Honda CR-V Release Date and Price
Honda has been mum on the cost of the 2024 Honda CR-V but has promised excellent value. It must maintain that price if it wants to compete with the Toyota RAV4, which sells for between $27,000 and $38,000. The current CR-pricing V’s are very similar to these estimates. Thus a modest increase from the current asking price is to be expected. Honda has announced that the release date of the 2024 CR-V is this summer (2024), while the release date of the hybrid models will be pushed back until later in the year (2024).
