2021 Honda CRV Hybrid Fuel Consumption

2021 Honda CRV hybrid fuel consumption, How Much Does the 2021 Honda Hybrid Burn?, Actual consumption: Honda CR-V Hybrid (2021) in the test, How much fuel does the full hybrid SUV without a plug need?

Two years after the last consumption test for the Honda CR-V Hybrid, we now come back to the car. This time we are testing the upgraded version of the Japanese full hybrid SUV without a plug.

On the 360 km long standard test track of our weekly consumption test, the average consumption was 6.10 liters / 100 km, which corresponds to German fuel costs of 8.91 euros / 100 km.

High consumption

This average consumption is not too high in relation to the weight and size of this 4.60-meter-long compact SUV with all-wheel drive and 184 hp. But the Honda only lands in the lower range in the category full hybrid SUVs of our consumption ranking.

On par with our test candidate is the even larger Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid (also 6.10 liters / 100 km). So far, only the Lexus NX Hybrid 4WD (6.50 liters) has consumed more. Curiously, the Honda CR-V Hybrid tested in 2019 also consumed a little less (5.30 liters). The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid AWD-i (4.40 liters) and the Hyundai Kona Hybrid (also 4.40 liters) and the Lexus UX 250h 2WD (4.35 liters) scored significantly better.

A really big car

Particularly positive about the Honda CR-V is the large amount of space on board, also for the legs of the rear passengers. The width and brightness in the interior are not neglected. The driving comfort, the generous trunk and the solid workmanship are also commendable.

The new version of the CR-V inherits a lot from the previous model. Thus, the new CR-V Hybrid again proves to be very pleasant, versatile and practical in everyday life. The assistance systems are excellent, including the lane keeping system. The tested version is the all-wheel drive version with the top Executive equipment, which costs almost 46,000 euros in Germany.

2021 Honda CRV Hybrid Fuel Consumption is slightly higher on the highway and in the city, but the 57-liter gasoline tank provides more than enough range for longer trips.

And this is how we determine the consumption

If you ask a friend about the consumption of his car, he will probably tell you a value that does not claim to be scientific. Maybe he read the value from the on-board computer, or he kept his fuel bills and calculated a consumption from them.

Similarly, we determine our test consumption: it is calculated as an average of the on-board computer value and the consumption determined at the gas station. The test cars are always driven by Fabio Gemelli from Driving Italy. The journalist often travels from the editorial office in Rome to his native Forlì (in Emilia-Romagna) for the weekend.

He deliberately moves the cars sparingly: he stays just below the top speed (on the Italian motorway: 130 km / h), avoids abrupt acceleration and braking and drives with foresight. The Rome-Forlì test track is about 360 kilometers long and includes 65 percent Superstrada (highway-like expressway, speed limit between 90 and 110 km / h), 25 percent Autostrada (highway, speed limit 130 km / h), five percent Strada Statale (federal highway, speed limit 90 km / h) and five percent city traffic.
