The 2023 Honda CR-V doesn’t see any changes compared to the 2022 model, including on list price. The price of the service goes up, however.
The current CR-V has now been replaced by a new model overseas, but Honda has yet to confirm an exact launch time for Australia.
From 1 October 2022 each scheduled service is made $74 more expensive than before. Pricing is currently capped at $199 per service for the first year.
All-wheel drive prices across the 2023 CR-V range start at $35,900 for the CR-V Vi and top out with the CR-V VTi LX AWD at $53,600.
Last year saw the introduction of the CR-V Black Edition which remains in the lineup and features heated front seats, LaneWatch blind spot monitoring and rear privacy glass.

The agency sales model is not all smooth sailing for Honda, with overall sales falling from 17,562 in 2021 to 14,215 in 2022 due to limited supply.
When it launched the agency sales model, the brand said it aimed to sell around 20,000 cars a year.
The CR-V is still the brand’s best-selling vehicle in the country, with 8123 sales in 2022.
The Japanese SUV offers a seven-seat option, and is one of the few vehicles still in its segment to do so. Other options include the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Nissan X-Trail.
