Honda CR-V 2024: price and specifications

Dylan Campbell

Stay up to date with Honda’s popular midsize SUV as we keep track of any and all upgrades, price changes and more, inside one handy report

Honda’s CR-V has been a favourite of Australian SUV buyers since the original arrived in 1997. Honda says CR-V stands for “Comfortable Runabout Vehicle”.

A new generation arrives in 2023 with turbocharged four-cylinder engines and a clever range-topping hybrid that drives like an electric car, intended to take on cars like the best-selling Toyota RAV4.

The new-generation Honda CR-V has arrived in Australia

The new CR-V measures 4704mm long, 1866mm wide and 1681mm tall – unless you have a model with the roof-racks, which extends the height to 1691mm.

All CR-Vs come with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty; five years of complimentary roadside assistance and five years capped pricing servicing. In Australia, Honda uses a novel new ‘agency model’ for selling cars, meaning what you see price-wise is what you pay. It’s intended to do away with haggling at dealers.

In this article, we break down the pricing and equipment lists of each 2024 CR-V grade. 

What does the Honda CR-V include in each grade?

Honda offers its CR-V in four distinct grades or equipment levels: VTi X, VTi L, VTi LX and the range-topping hybrid eHEV RS.

All models are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged inline-four producing 140kW and 240Nm, except the top-spec eHEV RS. 

The CR-V is available with petrol and petrol-hybrid drivetrains

The eHEV RS uses a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated inline-four as a generator, charging a small battery pack which then powers two electric motors which propel the car, making it a petrol-powered electric car (sort of). The eHEV RS’s total system output is 152kW.

All models are front-wheel-drive as standard except the VTi LX, which has standard all-wheel-drive. The VTi L can be optioned with all-wheel-drive for an additional $2500.

All CR-V models require minimum 91RON fuel and feature 57-litre fuel tank.
