The Honda CR-V Hybrid is the first hybrid SUV that Honda has sold in Europe and gets a totally new powertrain. As such, we’ve yet to learn about any common reliability issues.

Honda CR-V Hybrid reliability & problems

This generation of Honda CR-V was rated 21st overall out of 75 models ranked in the 2020 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey with an overall satisfaction score of over 90%. Honda was ranked seventh in the table of brands, so generally speaking the manufacturer's products are well thought of by owners.

Safety

The CR-V Hybrid scored the maximum five stars in Euro NCAP crash tests and comes with an extensive array of safety features as standard, including collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, lane-keeping assistance, lane-departure warning, road-departure mitigation, intelligent speed assistance and traffic-sign recognition systems. Adaptive cruise control is thrown into the mix, too.

SR and EX trims add blind-spot warning and cross-traffic monitoring, while low-speed cruise control is available as an optional extra across all trims. You can't add a space-saver spare wheel, though; there's only room for a tyre inflation kit under the boot floor.
