The 2020 Honda CR-V gets the following EPA-estimated MPG numbers on the LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels with CVT:
It achieves this kind of fuel economy with its standard 1.5L turbocharged I-4 engine that produces an exciting 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides automatic and optimized shifts.
This allows it to balance its high-powered performance with impressive efficiency.
As already mentioned, your Honda CR-V can come with either front-wheel drive or AWD. Many drivers in our area prefer the AWD system because it improves your handling capabilities in all kinds of weather.
The AWD system is always working to monitor your roadway conditions. It makes torque distribution adjustments as necessary to help improve your traction control in a variety of situations—from off-roading to smooth highway cruising.
One of the highlights of the 2020 Honda CR-V is that it comes with so many standard and available driver-assist and active safety features. These include systems like:
The Blind Spot Monitoring System also includes a Cross Traffic Monitor. This is helpful when backing out of a parking space in a crowded lot. It works by alerting you to vehicles who are approaching your rear blind spots while you’re in reverse.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed follow comes standard as well. This system automatically adjusts your cruise control speed when you approach slower-moving traffic on the highway. It can even slow you down to accommodate for heavy traffic and actively adjust to keep you going with the flow.
We love the standard Auto High-Beam Headlights, too. These allow you to focus more of your attention on navigating dark back roads during low-visibility conditions. They automatically toggle your high beams on and off for you based on the flow of oncoming cars or traffic lights.
Next, let’s climb inside the cabin of this compact SUV. While it’s in the compact segment of its class, that simply means that it’s agile, versatile, and easy to maneuver. The interior still feels just as spacious as you’d expect from any SUV.
It has a total passenger volume of 105.9 cubic feet, which includes the following dimensions:
In all, the CR-V can carry five passengers, including the driver. Even with all five seats filled, you’ll be able to pack in 39.2 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear row. This is more than enough space for groceries, sporting equipment, or luggage for your next family vacation.
If you spot a great find at an antique shop, want to take a bike out on the trail, or need some extra cargo room for moving into a new apartment, simply fold down the second-row seats. This will give you an impressive 75.8 cubic feet of total cargo volume to work with.
A 60/40 split-folding rear seat allows you to configure your cabin how you need to in order to maximize your space between cargo and passengers.
As you head out on an exciting road trip, having the right playlist and connectivity features is key. That’s why we love that the 2020 Honda CR-V comes with so many ways to stay connected while on the go.
It comes standard with a 5-inch LCD screen in the center stack. This is compatible with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Streaming Audio. These two features allow you to take important calls or stream music from your wireless device through your vehicle’s speakers.
If you want to kick things up a notch, you can upgrade to the available 7-inch high-resolution electrostatic touch-screen. It comes with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, which integrate your favorite smartphone apps with your SUV’s touch-screen display, including:
As you cruise, turn up the tunes with the available 330-Watt Premium Audio System with nine speakers and subwoofer. An available wireless phone charger can help your devices stay energized, too.
Finally, let’s talk about all the little things the Honda CR-V does to make you feel at home when you take the wheel. For example, it has heated seats available. These can help you warm up quickly on those chilly winter mornings before your daily commute.
An available 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat can also help you find the right setting for maximum comfort and visibility, while available 4-way power lumbar support reduces muscle fatigue.
When it’s time to hit the road, you can do so without having to fish for your key in your bag or pocket thanks to the available push button start feature. Meanwhile, the available leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel and the available ambient lighting will have you feeling like you’re riding in first class.
