You’re ready to spend your hard-earned cheddar on a good hybrid SUV in Jacksonville. Props! It’s a wise investment, not just for your purse but also for the Earth. (Hey, we did a rhyme!) Now comes the hard part: Finding the best hybrid SUV, one that gets all those savory MPGs without sacrificing any of that crossover-forward YOLO appeal.
As luck would have it, your local Honda dealer helps you solve that dilemma. On just about every Honda lot and showroom floor in America, including those at our First Coast Honda Dealers’ stores, are some of the best midsize hybrid SUVs of the year. Of course, we’re talking about none other than the 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid.
Great on Gas
For its price point, the 2021 CR-V Hybrid rebuilds the ozone layer by returning some of the best MPG in the hybrid SUV class, at 40 city/35 highway*. That’s better than the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid and Santa Fe Hybrid, and comparable to rivals like the RAV4 Hybrid, Toyota Venza, Ford Escape Hybrid, and Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.
Packs a Wallop
If you’re looking for the best AWD Hybrid SUV money can buy, venture into a Honda dealer near you to check out the CR-V Hybrid. Every trim, from the base EX to the mid-tier EX-L to the boss Touring, has a full all-wheel drive system. That comes partnered with a two-motor hybrid setup — a 2.0L 4-cylinder and electric motor — and an ultra-responsive e-CVT transmission. That equates to a net horsepower rating of 212* — more than Ford Escape’s 200-hp engine — and 232 lb-ft of torque. Let ‘er rip.
CR-V Hybrid’s trio of drive modes, with the assistance of regenerative braking paddles, helps to minimize your emissions. In ECO or EV mode, CR-V Hybrid uses little to no unleaded, while its Sport driving mode lets your heel live its life, even if for a few moments while heading south on SR 202.
Toots its Own Horn
Unlike the 2020 Ford Escape SE, the Honda CR-V Hybrid EX comes standard with a remote engine state system and Honda’s patented Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock. Smart Entry automatically locks and unlocks the doors when you (your key fob) is out of or within range, respectively. So, technically speaking, CR-V Hybrid literally toots its own horn when you walk away from it.
Dual-zone climate control is yet another CR-V feature that’s absent in the Ford Escape. With CR-V’s climate control system, both riders up front can set their own preferred temperature and air speed. Customized comfort, no matter what.
Always Trust a Honda
You can always have faith in a Honda. According to repairpal.com, Honda ranks first (of 32 brands), with a 4/5 reliability rating and lower-than-average estimated annual repair costs. It seems reasonable to state that the Honda CR-V Hybrid, based on Honda’s knack for dependability, ranks right up there with the most reliable SUVs for sale, let alone the most reliable hybrid SUVs.
