Honda CR-V Hybrid - The Christmas tree that never goes out!


Honda CR-V Hybrid - The Christmas tree that never goes out!

Inside Honda, the hybrid powertrain is referred to as i-MMD, and in conversations with company representatives, you can hear the ambitious phrase “an electric car that never runs out of power.” Interesting to see if this is true? To do this, with the help of the importer of the brand in our country, Bultrakou managed to drive a short car.

The hybrid version is based on the standard version of the classic Honda CR-V engine, so there are no small differences either outside or inside. To understand that there is something else, the decals on the front fenders and tailgate will not help. A closer look shows that it does not have a double muffler tip, here it is single and not so impressive.

Obviously, the designers were not faced with the task of doing something radically different - on the contrary, the car looks no different from the standard version. The entire lineup included hybrid versions, including the supermodel NSX. The main innovations of the Honda CR-V Hybrid are hidden under the hood and deep inside the car, so there are no special differences in the cabin.

At the heart of the hybrid version is actually the average level of equipment according to the standard, so it conveys a lot! Leather upholstery, power front seats, keyless entry, LED headlights, full range of security and driver assistance systems. The only thing the Prestige can envy is the power tailgate and front display. There are a few more options, but the differences between gear levels are almost negligible.

What's impressive about the coupe is the lack of a traditional gear selector. Instead, there are a few buttons that are handled just illogically.

Like the "regular" Honda CR-V, there is a high level of ergonomics and seating in comfortable seats, but there is no steering depth adjustment. The dashboard gives maximum information, indication of the mode of operation of the hybrid "power plant". Good organization of the center console in the Honda CR-V. Interestingly, it fits into the front panel of the multimedia system (7 inches) with Garmin navigation and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In Japanese, laconic organization of things in the central tunnel - a sliding shelf cover, cup holders, a full set of ports - from the usual "lighter" to HDMI.

The interior of the crossover is spacious and has a lot of space in length, width and height. In addition, under the rear row there is an almost flat floor, and behind it is a spacious trunk. Here, however, small sacrifices were made due to the lithium-ion battery, which occupies 64 liters of its volume, which is 497 liters for the hybrid version.

On the road, the Honda CR-V Hybrid is powered by a combination of an economical 2.0 i-VTEC Atkinson gasoline engine with two electric motors - a traction motor and a lithium-ion battery charge generator. Unlike other hybrids, the electric motor with 135kW (184hp) and 315Nm of torque is the main one - it turns the wheels.

Of course, when you need more power and speed, the petrol engine kicks in and drives the wheels directly. This is usually done on straight, flat sections when the speed is in the 70–120 km/h range and sometimes higher. According to the engineers, this is necessary for greater efficiency, because I believe that in this mode the movement is more economical than just electricity.

The car offers three main driving modes - "Economy", "Sport" and "Electro". In reality, in this car, the emphasis is on a combination of efficiency and dynamics. With more pressure on the accelerator pedal, the crossover spins so fast that you can imagine that there is hardly a three-liter engine under the hood. The car accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 8.8 seconds, but as you get older, you can even get a little faster. This makes the hybrid work faster than the regular turbo version, which in this exercise shows exactly 10 seconds.

In all other respects, the car is the same as a Honda with an internal combustion engine, so the driver is unlikely to feel the difference. There is a full range of driver assistance systems, including a lane keeping system and a front wheelbase.

During the test, the average consumption in the city was 5-6 liters per 100 km. Sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more - now it will depend on the preferences of the vehicles. The standard turbo version, for example, costs almost twice as much as this one.
