Have we seen the CR-V's new dashboard before?
About a month ago, Honda gave us a glimpse of the all-new CR-V's front and rear exterior details. And just to hype the crossover a bit more before its official launch, the Japanese brand rolled out another puzzle piece.
Honda released a teaser of the 2023 CR-V that shows off a rather familiar-looking dashboard. Do you want to see for yourself? Well, use our slider below to play the game of spot the difference:
That's right. The 2023 Honda CR-V shares the same dashboard as the 11th-generation Civic. From the honeycomb A/C vents, the new steering wheel, and right down to the piano black details, Honda has maximized their new parts bin from the “Simplicity and something” design language in the upcoming crossover.
The only difference between the Civic and the CR-V's dashboard layout can be seen in the placement of the shifter. In the all-new CR-V, the shifter is placed to the right where the Civic's cupholders are located. This may have been done in order to accommodate what looks like a wireless charging port for smartphones.
In addition, the switches for the drive modes, the electronic parking brake, and the brake hold function are placed at the left of the shifter. On the other hand, the CR-V has different-looking door handles, but the power windows and mirror switches are still very much from the Honda parts bin.
Lastly, if you look closely at the digital display, you'd notice on the tachometer that this is the Honda CR-V hybrid's interior, complete with the orange contrast stitching on the seats, the shifter, and the steering wheel.
Honda says they will reveal more details of the all-new CR-V come July 12, but the exact official US “summer” launch date is yet to be announced. Let's stay tuned.
