The Honda CR-V Hybrid is very economical on paper, but cheaper rivals boast lower running costs

The Honda CR-V Hybrid is the most economical model in the CR-V range, making it a much better long-term prospect than the 1.5-litre petrol version.

Honda CR-V Hybrid MPG

The Hybrid officially returns 53.3mpg in front-wheel-drive form, while all-wheel-drive models hit a combined 51.4mpg. CO2 emissions come in at 120 and 126g/km for the front and all-wheel drive models respectively. Only 18-inch wheels are available on the CR-V Hybrid, so these figures are consistent across the four trim levels.

Given that the petrol can manage no more than 44.8mpg, a significant saving looks certain over the lifetime of the car by opting for the Hybrid. The 2.0-litre Hybrid models cost £800 more than the equivalent 1.5-litre petrol engined cars, while going for four rather than front-wheel drive costs a further £1,100. Unless you’re likely to tackle rugged terrain in the CR-V, front-wheel drive is perfectly adequate: the difference on the road is indistinguishable and the front-wheel-drive models are slightly more economical.

However, it’s worth remembering there are other hybrid SUVs out there that can make fuel – and your money – go even further. The Toyota C-HR Hybrid returns 74.3mpg on paper, while the Kia Niro manages 76.3mpg; both cost several thousand less than the CR-V Hybrid.

The CR-V Hybrid has a 57-litre fuel tank, giving the front-wheel-drive version a theoretical range of around 665 miles.
