2023 Honda CR-V Sport Touring

The editors of Car and Driver have awarded the Honda CR-V a coveted 10Best Award!

This Award honors the all-new 2023 CR-V for its rugged styling, increased interior space and available sporty hybrid-electric performance. This is the fourth time the CR-V has won a 10Best award.

“The CR-V is a well-rounded package that punches way above its weight on multiple levels,” said the editors at Car and Driver. “That impression starts as soon as you close the door and start rolling, as the structure of the new CR-V immediately feels tight, hushed, and substantial. The body shell is more rigid, and there’s more sound insulation in the cowl, firewall, and instrument panel areas. Once you’re underway, the new CR-V delivers the kind of smoothness you expect from a more expensive vehicle. The steering is willing and pairs to a chassis that cuts a steady arc through turns. The interior feels rich, too, with an attractive styling theme shared with the Honda Civic, a 10Best Cars winner. The Sport models feature a hybrid system that delivers up to 40 mpg combined; they’re our most recommended versions of this much-recommended vehicle.”

“The Honda CR-V is America’s best-selling CUV of the past quarter century*, and the all-new 2023 Honda CR-V raises the bar with a rugged and sophisticated design and a sportier and more capable driving experience,” said Lance Woelfer, assistant vice president Honda National Sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “For the editors of Car and Driver to honor CR-V, Accord and Civic with prestigious 10Best awards in the same year is an incredible honor for the entire Honda family.”

With 69 total awards, Honda is the winningest brand in Car and Driver 10Best history. At least one Honda has earned a spot on the annual list every year since the award’s inception in 1983. Accord is also far and away the most awarded vehicle in Car and Driver 10Best history, making the prestigious list an incredible 37 times, including the last 25 years consecutively.
