The 2020 Honda CR-V

The 2020 Honda CR-V is almost here. For eco-conscious sport utility vehicle lovers, the Honda CR-V now provides a hybrid model with plenty of power and the amenities of the classic CR-V. For the 2020 model year, the CR-V received a style upgrade and some under-the-hood adjustments sure to please new consumers and brand loyalists who want to invest in a new vehicle. Cosmetic and functional changes include a more sophisticated front end, updated storage in the console and more places to store small accessories, such as phones, chargers and change. The CR-V also does not skimp on safety features and makes many items that were previously upgrades available as standard features in all models. With a late-in-the-year launch date, there are still a lot of new features to explore in the CR-V and the hybrid version, but the latest information on both models is very promising.

For eco-conscious sport utility vehicle lovers, the Honda CR-V now provides a hybrid model with plenty of power and the amenities of the classic CR-V. For the 2020 model year, the CR-V received a style upgrade and some under-the-hood adjustments sure to please new consumers and brand loyalists who want to invest in a new vehicle. Cosmetic and functional changes include a more sophisticated front end, updated storage in the console and more places to store small accessories, such as phones, chargers and change. The CR-V also does not skimp on safety features and makes many items that were previously upgrades available as standard features in all models. With a late-in-the-year launch date, there are still a lot of new features to explore in the CR-V and the hybrid version, but the latest information on both models is very promising.

In the 2020 Honda CR-V, consumers will find that the 1.5-liter, four cylinder VTEC turbo engine previously reserved for upgrade packages of the CR-V is now standard on all vehicle models. Alloy wheel options were also added as well as new driving features with a safety component. The hybrid model utilizes a two-motor electric drive system with a 2.0L 16V DOHC Atkinson cycle gas engine with 212 total horsepower. Due to the dual-motor, a conventional automatic transmission is not needed in the hybrid version. Combined fuel economy on the hybrid model is expected to top 40 mpg, and the combined fuel economy on 2019 models with the same engine as the 2020 reached 30 mpg.

For the family or weekend warriors in search of adventure, the CR-V models offer a premium amount of cargo space with up to 105.9 cubic feet of cargo volume. Rear seats enjoy a 60/40 split and can be removed to reach the max storage capacity. Roof rack and rear rack options make adding sporting equipment to the roof or bikes to the back a snap while the interior space can hold personal gear or added passengers. Interior features include a full-tech center with built-in infotainment options, including connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for improved access to needed apps, such as maps, messages, music and radio options.

Both the 2020 Honda CR-V SUV front-wheel drive and the CR-V all-wheel drive have received a five-star overall rating in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests. In individual categories, both models received five stars in front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover test. The NHTSA highlights the presence of standard lane departure warnings as a benefit. Safety features bundled standard also include automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control to reduce manual speed adjustments in traffic and blind-spot monitoring for merging and assistance with staying in the lane. Both the road departure mitigation system and the lane-keeping assist system help drivers stay in the lane of travel, whether subtle drifting is taking place or the vehicle is fully leaving the lane.

With the 2020 Honda CR-V expected to launch in late 2019 and the hybrid model dropping in early 2020, pricing details for various packages and the SUV itself are at a minimum. Kelly Blue Book reports the base price for a 2019 Honda CR-V LX started at $24,450 and extended to $32,850 for the top-notch Touring model. Edmunds reported it anticipates an increase in those base prices for the CR-V based on the addition of new, premium features. Price ranges on the hybrid are not available as of Sept. 2019 and will likely be announced closer to the early 2020 launch. Honda is not offering special pricing on any 2020 models at launch but does offer military and recent graduate discounts.
