Trims and Powertrains

As part of the redesign, Honda has dropped the LX, and the EX is now the base trim, followed by the EX-L. Two new trims – the Sport and Sport Touring – will round out the selection with later release, but they’ll constitute the CR-V Hybrid. We’ll focus on the gasoline-only EX and EX-L on this page and cover the gas-electric trims on their own page.

The 2023 CR-V EX and EX-L get an updated turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 190 horsepower. It teams up with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive comes by default, but Real Time all-wheel drive is offered as an option. Honda now equips the CR-V with hill descent control for more sure footing on challenging surfaces. The EPA has estimated that both trims get 28 mpg in city driving and 34 mpg on the highway, which changes to 27 city/32 highway with AWD.

EX

Model year 2023’s streamlined trim roster has made the EX the base trim, it gets more standard features than before. That list includes proximity keyless entry, LED headlights and taillights, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a power moonroof, dual-zone auto climate control, push-button ignition, cloth seats (heated in the front row), rear privacy glass, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, a 7-inch driver information display, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Its exterior mirrors are heated and adjustable with built-in turn-signal indicators.

The multimedia system has been overhauled as part of the CR-V’s redesign. One significant improvement is that Honda has brought back audio control knobs for easier use, after listening to customer feedback. The EX gets a 7-inch touchscreen system with smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Bluetooth, a text messaging assistant, and HondaLink remote services.

Honda Sensing, the automaker’s package of state-of-the-art driver-assist technologies, comes standard, with significant improvements made as part of the redesign: there are updates to the cameras and radar system, blind-spot monitoring, traffic jam assist, low-speed braking control, and traffic sign recognition. The other Honda Sensing features are adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation, road departure mitigation, and lane-keeping assist. A driver attention monitor, rear seatbelt reminder, and rear seat reminder are also included.

EX-L

Leather seats and leather wrapping for the steering wheel and shifter knob are among the bonuses on this higher trim level. It also adds a power tailgate, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, driver’s-side position memory, piano-black interior trim, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a pair of second-row USB ports. The revamped infotainment system in the EX-L has a 9-inch touchscreen, wireless smartphone integration, navigation SiriusXM satellite radio, a simplified on-screen menu structure, additional speakers, and a wireless device charger (in addition to the Bluetooth, SMS text messaging assistant, and HondaLink remote services found on the base EX).

Like the base EX, the EX-L gets Honda Sensing, the automaker’s package of state-of-the-art driver-assist technologies (blind-spot monitoring, traffic jam assist, low-speed braking control, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation, road departure mitigation, and lane-keeping assist). A driver attention monitor, rear seatbelt reminder, and rear seat reminder are standard as well.
