Honda has always been known for making some of the most fuel-efficient and reliable cars and SUVs in the market. It seems like no matter which Honda vehicle you choose, you can’t go wrong, as is the case for its current SUV lineup. But what if you want the most fuel-efficient Honda SUV? Which one should you pick?

Surprise! The most fuel-efficient Honda SUV is a hybrid

For the 2023 model year, there are four different Honda SUVs to choose from – the HR-V, CR-V, Passport, and Pilot. If you’re looking for the one that sips the least amount of fuel, then you’ll have to pick the 2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid. According to Honda, the CR-V Hybrid is able to achieve up to an EPA-estimated 43 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.

It gets its stellar fuel efficiency from a 2.0-liter engine that’s paired with dual electric motors, which give it plenty of low-end grunt and mid-range power. Speaking of power, the hybrid powertrain puts out a combined 204 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque, and it’s paired with a CVT that simulates shifts. That’s not a bad thing considering traditional CVTs tend to drone at cruising speeds.

The second most fuel-efficient Honda is also its best-selling model

For buyers that aren’t into hybrids, the non-hybrid Honda CR-V is the second most fuel-efficient SUV. Under its hood is a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that produces 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. This setup is good for an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, which makes it surprisingly more efficient than the HR-V – Honda’s smallest crossover.

In addition to its exceptional fuel economy figures, the CR-V comes standard with plenty of comfort and convenience features. Inside, there’s a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone auto climate control, heated front seats, and a host of standard safety features.

Some of those safety features include full LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, a collision mitigation braking system, blind-spot monitors, and a multi-angle rearview camera. Stepping up to the higher trims unlocks more features like a leather interior, power tailgate, a larger 9-inch touchscreen, and wireless Apple Carplay/Android Auto.

What about the Honda HR-V?

In case you’re wondering, the all-new 2023 Honda HR-V is pretty fuel-efficient despite the fact that it’s not the most fuel-efficient model. The EPA estimates that it can get a maximum of 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. That fuel efficiency is made possible by a newly revised 158-hp, naturally aspirated 2.0-liter engine that’s mated to a CVT.

We had the chance to drive the 2023 Honda HR-V recently and came away impressed with its comfortable driving dynamics. The engine feels spritely, and it provides adequate power to get the car moving smoothly and quickly. However, we did find that the CVT tends to bog the power down a bit upon initial acceleration and when going up inclines.

Otherwise, the HR-V offers an exceptional and fuel-efficient package for only a little over $20,000. But, of course, if you want the most fuel efficiency for your dollar, go with the Honda CR-V Hybrid, you won’t be disappointed.
