Honda finally hybridizes its CR-V crossover

This amped-up utility vehicle is a better choice than its gasoline-powered counterpart.

Craig Cole
Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

There aren't many visual changes separating this crossover from non-hybrid models.

A two-motor hybrid system is found under the hood.

Of course, there are badges in case you forget what you're driving.

Inside, the CR-V Hybrid's biggest change is the inclusion of a push-button shifter rather than a mechanical lever.

Yep, it pretty much looks like a CR-V.
