Honda has again teased the 2023-model-year CR-V, with the Japanese car manufacturer releasing a teaser image of the next-generation model’s interior.

According to the Minato City-based manufacturer, it has “raised the stakes” with the new iteration’s cabin. The automaker says the 2023 derivative’s interior will be “more premium, comfortable and high-tech” than ever before, making it “perfect” for daily life and fun weekend adventures. 

The teaser image reveals that the new variant sports a horizontal dashboard design. Spanning the passenger’s side fascia, this item features a honeycomb motif which incorporates the central and right-hand-side air vents.

Sited atop the dash is a touch-enabled infotainment system, which, by no doubt, will offer several features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto screen-mirroring functionality. The storage space below the dash also seems to feature wireless smartphone charging. Above the latter, the carmaker has retained analogue switchgear for the (seen here) dual-zone climate control set-up. Buttons for seat-heating functionality can also be found on the car teased here. A digital instrument cluster can be found in front of the multifunction steering wheel. 

Next to the gear lever, those with a keen eye will notice this model features hill-descent control. The seats also seem to have been redesigned. As seen here, the pews feature orange contrast stitching, as does the tiller. In addition, a close look above the rear-view mirror reveals that this model is equipped with a sunroof. 

(It’s worth noting that the car teased here is for the U.S. market. The specifications for the South African market still need to be announced.)

As a reminder, earlier this year, Honda gave us a glimpse of the upcoming version’s “sophisticated” and “rugged” exterior. At the same time, the company revealed that the all-new CR-V would offer more versatility and an “advanced” hybrid powertrain.
