Honda CR-V Hybrid

The CR-V Hybrid also includes an electric motor that produces 181 hp and 232 lb-ft, which means that its 212 combined horsepower make it 22-hp more potent than the gas version. The engine power is sent to all four wheels by way of an e-CVT transmission. All CR-V Hybrids come with standard all-wheel drive, and it’s the same mechanical system used in the gas model, not an electrified rear axle.

The Honda Passport contains a 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission that provides ample power delivery tempered by excellent fuel efficiency with none of the commotion typical of a turbocharged four-cylinder. In the interest of fuel economy, three of the engine’s cylinders deactivate, and the rear driveshaft decouples under light loads.
