Honda CR-V Hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

The Honda CR-V Hybrid has disappointing official economy figures, but our test economy of around 40mpg is good by class standards

When there was a choice of engines in the Honda CR-V range, the hybrid was the most economical model you could choose, making it a much better long-term prospect than the 1.5-litre petrol version, which was discontinued at the end of the 2020 model year.

Honda CR-V Hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

Slight improvements to efficiency were introduced with a small update made to the CR-V in 2021. It now officially returns 42-43mpg in front-wheel-drive form, while all-wheel-drive examples can hit 39-40mpg. CO2 emissions come in at 151 and 161-163g/km for the front and all-wheel drive models respectively. 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-drive models are slightly more economical.

Unusually, the CR-V routinely matched or bettered its official economy numbers in testing (using a 2020 model), with the four-wheel-drive EX returning around 40mpg on the motorway, and up to 46mpg around town. That suggests the CR-V is likely to cost the same as a Toyota RAV4 to run. The CR-V has a 57-litre fuel tank, giving the front-wheel-drive version a theoretical range of around 665 miles on a single fill-up.
