Hybrid or gas: Which Honda CR-V is for you?

Hybrid or gas: Which Honda CR-V is for you?

As the automotive industry continues to embrace sustainability and efficiency, Honda Cars Philippines Incorporated has introduced two powertrains for the all-new CR-V — hybrid and turbocharged gas engine. With both options offering their own unique benefits, it is important for potential buyers to understand the differences between these options.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Is the hybrid variant of the all-new Honda CR-V more expensive than the gas-powered models?

    Yes, the RS e:HEV is priced higher at P2.59 million. The gas-powered VX Turbo AWD retails for P2.28 million, while the V Turbo is priced at P2.1 million.
  • What is the fuel economy rating of the all-new Honda CR-V?

    The hybrid version achieves a fuel efficiency rating of 29.4 kilometers per liter (kpl) in the United Nations Regulation 101 test under urban driving conditions. The gas variants of, on the other hand, achieved a fuel economy rating of 16.4kpl.
  • Engine performance

    The hybrid variant of the all-new Honda CR-V features the e:HEV technology, which cleverly combines a gasoline engine with two electric motors, the Traction Motor and the Generator Motor. The gas engine produces 145 horsepower (hp) and 183 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque, and the electric motors deliver 181hp and 335Nm of torque.

    On the other hand, the internal combustion engine (ICE) variants of the CR-V rely solely on their gasoline engine. This tried-and-true powertrain provides 187hp and 240Nm of pulling power.

    6th-gen CR-V

    When it comes to acceleration and torque, the RS e:HEV variant holds the upper hand. The electric motor provides instant torque, delivering a spirited takeoff and seamless acceleration. The gas-powered variants, while still capable, may not offer the same level of low-end torque.

    Fuel economy and environmental impact

    The RS e:HEV variant’s hybrid system reduces emissions, making it a more eco-friendly choice. Driving this will not only help you save money at the pump but also make you do your part in preserving the planet for future generations.

    When it comes to fuel economy ratings, once again, the RS e:HEV variant is the better choice. It can achieve a fuel efficiency rating of 29.4 kilometers per liter (kpl) based on the United Nations Regulation 101 test under urban driving conditions.

    The gas variants of the all-new CR-V, on the other hand, achieved a fuel economy rating of 16.4kpl in the same test.

    6th-gen CR-V

    It is worth noting that your driving conditions can affect the efficiency of both the hybrid and gas-powered models. In stop-and-go city traffic, the hybrid's regenerative braking system and electric motor deliver more efficiency, capturing energy that would otherwise go to waste. On the other hand, if you spend most of your time cruising on the open highway, the gas variants may provide a more consistent and efficient performance.

    Technology and features

    Besides the environmental perks, the CR-V RS e:HEV also offers exclusive features and technology. It comes with a regenerative braking system, which captures energy from braking and uses it to recharge the battery.

    Also exclusive to the RS e:HEV variant are the head-up display, 12-speaker Bose premium audio system, and adaptive driving beam. The top-of-the-line trim also sports an RS-exclusive grille and a panoramic sunroof.

    Pricing

    With its advanced hybrid technology under the hood, the Honda CR-V RS e:HEV is priced higher at P2.59 million. It also comes with an eight-year or 200,000km battery warranty (whichever comes first).

    For the gas variants, the VX Turbo AWD retails for P2.28 million and the V Turbo is priced at P2.1 million.

    Verdict

    Choosing between the hybrid and gas models of the all-new Honda CR-V ultimately depends on your priorities and preferences. If you want to save money upfront, the gas variants might be more appealing. However, if you are passionate about sustainability and want to reduce your carbon footprint, the hybrid variant is the greener choice.
