The 2023 Honda CR-V comes with an amazing new standard feature

The 2023 Honda CR-V just got a whole lot better. Honda’s small SUV model has been competitive for decades, but thanks to a new redesign, it can rival the top small SUVs in its segment.

Honda’s new CR-V comes standard with a Blind-Spot Warning feature. Blind-Spot Warning is a feature that warns drivers when vehicles are in their blind spots to avoid collisions when switching lanes.

This 2023 Honda CR-V standard feature is usually a feature reserved for upper trim level models. It makes driving easier and safer for drivers. A blind-spot information system isn’t standard on the 2022 CR-V model until the EX trim.

The 2023 Honda CR-V’s standard Blind-Spot Warning is a game-changer because the CR-V is a standout model in its vehicle segment. Other automakers could take note of the new standard feature and follow in Honda’s footsteps. Automobiles are becoming smarter than ever, from self-parking features to amazing adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go features. The new CR-V’s standard Blind-Spot Warning is a perfect example of the amazing progress that modern vehicles are making.

The 2023 Honda CR-V is a major improvement over the previous model year. It includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen. 2022 CR-Vs come standard with a 5.0-inch touchscreen. The new CR-V also comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Honda’s latest CR-V features a new exterior and interior design. It also comes with the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistance features, which includes Road Departure Mitigation, a Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and a Collision Mitigation System.

The 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid is more powerful than any CR-V model ever produced thus far. It uses two electric motors and makes 247 lb-ft of torque. The 2022 Honda CR-V is one of the most competitive small SUVs in its segment, so the new model has the potential to become the best small SUV on the market.

Thus far, the Hyundai Tucson has dominated 2022 in many ways. The newly redesigned Tucson’s bold character lines and incredible value have propelled it to the top of many ranking lists. It’s value-oriented, which is extremely important to consumers. Hyundai’s small SUV is affordable and competes at the highest level in its segment.

Honda’s 2023 small SUV has the potential to dominate its segment, but it’s much too early to tell. Its pricing will be a huge factor in its popularity. Can the new CR-V rise to the occasion and finally outsell its more popular rivals like the Toyota RAV4? Until Honda’s new small SUV arrives, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson is still the top dog for the moment.
