MARKHAM — The Honda CR-V wine Coveted Car and Driver 10Best award from Car and Driver. This is the fourth time CR-V has won a 10Best Award.

“The CR-V is a well-rounded package that punches way above its weight on multiple levels,” said the editors at Car and Driver. “That impression starts as soon as you close the door and start rolling, as the structure of the new CR-V immediately feels tight, hushed, and substantial. The body shell is more rigid, and there’s more sound insulation in the cowl, firewall, and instrument panel areas. Once you’re underway, the new CR-V delivers the kind of smoothness you expect from a more expensive vehicle. The steering is willing and pairs to a chassis that cuts a steady arc through turns. The interior feels rich, too, with an attractive styling theme shared with the Honda Civic, a 10Best Cars winner. The Sport models (Touring Hybrid in Canada) feature a hybrid system that delivers up to 40 mpg combined; they’re our most recommended versions of this much-recommended vehicle.”

In a show of design and engineering excellence, Honda earned three Car and Driver10Best awards this year. The magazine’s editors also honoured the 2023 Accord and the Civic lineup which includes the 2023 Civic Type R.

Each year, Honda has earned at least one spot on the annual list since the award’s inception in 1983.


The CR-V is available in five trim levels, including the hybrid-powered CR-V. The CR-V Touring Hybrid includes a fourth-generation two-motor hybrid-electric system, while also achieving high fuel efficiency. With 247 lb.-ft of torque it is the most powerful CR-V ever.

“The all-new 2023 Honda CR-V has been improved upon in every way, from its rugged, sportier and sophisticated design to its enhanced driving appeal,” said Steve Hui, Assistant Vice-President, Honda Canada. “We are especially proud that the CR-V, CR-V Hybrid, Civic Sedan and Civic Si are built at Honda of Canada Mfg. plants in Alliston, Ontario, these built in Canada models join the all-new Accord at achieving the prestigious Car and Driver 10Best award this year.”
