    2020 Honda CR-V

    At the moment the CR-V is Honda’s most popular model, with sales growing a lot in the past few months, and it is also second-best-selling CUV in the U.S. – after the Toyota RAV4. So is no wonder why Honda decided to invest $4.2 million in its plant in Indiana where the CR-V is being built. And it is also no wonder why the model received a new series of updates for the 2020 model year, plus the addition of a first hybrid version.

    Lets start with the most important update: the hybrid version. It uses the same powertrain as in the Accord Hybrid: a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine combined with two electric motors. This system delivers a total of 212 horsepower – up from 190 HP on the CR-V. Also, Honda is promising an anticipated 50 percent increase in the EPA city fuel economy rating compared to the CR-V.

    The non-hybrid models use a 1.5-liter DOHC, direct-injected VTEC™ Turbo engine that delivers 190 horsepower and comes mated to sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic.

    As for the exterior, updates for the 2020 model year include darker chrome and light lenses and for the Hybrid versions a blue Honda shield in the grille and “Hybrid” badging. For the interior the CR-V hybrid is offering a new selector flanked by drive mode buttons: Eco, Sport and EV. The instrument panel also is unique to CR-V Hybrid models, and features a display for power/charge status, as well as a driver-selectable display for power distribution and regeneration. CR-V Hybrid models also receive deceleration selector paddles on the steering wheel.
