Redmond drivers know the value of choosing the right vehicle for their family. Shoppers usually put a premium on comfort, convenience, fuel economy, and safety. At the same time, most people desire a vehicle that is fun to drive. If this sounds like it describes you, then you should probably make your next family vehicle a Honda CR-V Hybrid. This model checks all of these boxes while delivering a compact SUV that you are definitely going to love to drive.

We have found that so many families love the Honda CR-V Hybrid. This is not like those original hybrids that could be rather cramped and utilitarian. The engineers at Honda have taken the CR-V crossover and equipped it with a hybrid powertrain without any reduction in the passenger space or cargo capacity. In addition, the 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid gives you a level of luxury that early hybrid models could only dream about. At Klein Honda, we are proud to serve drivers from Redmond.

Luxury and Efficiency Without Compromise

The Honda CR-V Hybrid gives you the luxury features you want while reducing fuel consumption. This is because the hybrid powertrain minimizes the use of the conventional gas engine, which also shrinks the CR-V Hybrid’s carbon footprint.

The 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid features a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle I-4 gas engine paired with an electric motor. The gas engine uses multi-stage, high-pressure direct injection to boost efficient performance. As for the electric motor, it is powered by a small lithium-ion battery pack located safely in the vehicle’s lower frame. This not only shields the battery from damage in a collision, but it also frees up space. Many older hybrid models were designed with the battery located behind the rear seats. This caused these early hybrids to lose a great deal of trunk space.

The combination of a gas engine and electric motor gives the Honda CR-V Hybrid an output of 204 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. This helps make the CR-V Hybrid fun to drive. As for keeping the battery pack charged, the gas engine powers a generator at lower speeds, and regenerative braking recaptures a portion of the kinetic energy that is usually lost every time you use the brakes to keep the battery recharged. The result is an incredibly economical model that will give you an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 40 MPG combined.[a]

Three Luxurious Trims to Choose From

Honda took an interesting approach to the 2024 CR-V. It made the hybrid the standard powertrain on all three of its top trim levels. If you choose the Sport, Sport-L, or Sport Touring trim, you will get the hybrid engine. This means that you get all of the benefits of a hybrid, like reduced fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, in a model that is roomy and luxurious.

The designers at Honda have done a great job of making the CR-V Hybrid exceptionally roomy. The passenger compartment has 103.5 cu.ft. of space for up to five passengers. This makes the model excellent for family drivers from Redmond. The way the space has been apportioned is also very efficiently designed. The front-row passengers have 41.3 inches of legroom, while those seated in the back get 41 inches. Both rows will enjoy 38.2 inches of headroom. This equality of space will help reduce bickering among your passengers.

The front seats on all trims of the 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid are heated, which will come in handy on cold Washington state winter mornings. The Sport trim has attractive fabric-trimmed seats, while the Sport-L and Sport Touring trims feature leather seats with orange stitching. These not only look fantastic but are extremely comfortable. The steering wheel and shift knobs on all 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid models are leather-wrapped for improved grip.

Honda has taken the time to add little features throughout the vehicle’s cabin to improve convenience for you and your passengers. There are plenty of cup holders strategically placed in the passenger compartment, as well as USB-C charging ports in front and back. The trunk has 39.3 cu.ft. of space, with cargo area tie-down anchors. The Sport-L and Sport Touring trims have a power tailgate, with the latter featuring hands-free access. This will make loading and unloading your CR-V Hybrid more convenient than ever.

Safety Comes Standard

Every 2024 Honda CR-V features the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist features, and the Hybrid trims have even more standard equipment. This helps make the CR-V an extremely safe pick for Redmond families. All of the Hybrid trims have the Blind Spot Information System, which is not standard on the gasoline model. This lets you know if there is another vehicle driving in the adjacent lane when you go to change lanes on the highway.

The 2024 CR-V Hybrid trims also have a Cross Traffic Monitor. This will let you know if another vehicle or pedestrian is about to cross behind your CR-V when you go to back out of a parking spot. This will reduce the chances of an accident. The Sport-L and Sport Touring trims also feature front and rear parking sensors. Many Redmond drivers don’t enjoy parallel parking, as it is often difficult to judge the space between the two cars, as well as the distance to the curb. These parking sensors will let you know if you are too close to the vehicle in front of or behind you. This will help guide you safely and easily into a parallel parking spot.

Stay Connected in Your CR-V Hybrid

Today’s vehicles feature ways for you and your passengers to stay connected. This is definitely the case with the 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid. This model features the HondaLink system, which allows you to connect your smartphone using Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, or Android Auto. As a result, you can make hands-free calls and texts, as well as stream your favorite apps. The Sport-L and Sport Touring trims feature wireless connectivity, so you can still hook up to HondaLink even if you left your charging cables at home. The system has a color touchscreen, which measures seven inches on the Sport, while the Sport-L and Sport Touring have a larger nine-inch touchscreen.

Honda has also included a wonderful sound system on the CR-V Hybrid. No matter which trim you choose, you will be able to set your own soundtrack as you commute to work, carpool with friends, or take your family on your latest adventure in Washington state. The Sport has a six-speaker sound system, while the Sport-L has eight speakers. However, if you really love music, you might want the Sport Touring with its Bose Premium Sound System. This has 12 speakers with a subwoofer to capture the low end. You will love this audio system if you are all about the bass.

There are a number of other special features that only come on the Sport Touring. These include a built-in satellite-linked navigation system for reliable maps with real-time traffic updates wherever you go. There is also a 15-watt wireless phone charger. This is Qi-compatible and will allow you and your passengers to keep your phones charged even if you left the cables at home.
