The 2020 Honda CR-V continues to be one of the country's leading compact SUVs, boasting some significant enhancements this year. Along with a new hybrid model, the 2020 CR-V gets an exterior facelift, replaces its predecessor's base engine with a 190 hp 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, and the interior adds the Honda Sensing suite of active safety features standard. With the Honda CR-V interior features, you can take advantage of a slew of cutting-edge technology features. The standard turbocharged engine comes paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and offers quicker 0-60 mph acceleration times than before. Both front- and all-wheel drive configurations are available and the CR-V's towing capacity is rated up to 1,500 pounds. When we say it is one of the most affordable compact SUVs, we weigh in its excellent fuel economy ratings - EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. For families, the Honda CR-V is a must-test vehicle - it offers great interior quality, a spacious cabin, plenty of cargo space, and comfortable on-road performance, all at an affordable price.

Engine and Performance
7.0/10

"The base 1.4-litre turbo-4 has good power but its gift is fuel efficiency." -TheCarConnection

Honda CR-V Engine and Transmission

All the trim levels of the 2020 Honda CR-V come with a standard 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The CR-V gets190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque, which is ample for the crossover to accelerate swiftly enough for most needs. Honda's CVT is smoother than other versions of the rivals.

2020 Honda CR-V Crossover driving view

The 2020 CR-V is capable of reaching 60 MPH from a standstill in just 7.6 seconds and does the quarter-mile run in 16.0 seconds. With that, it can easily do a top speed of 130 MPH. Also, the CR-V can tow up to 1,500lbs of trailer weight, which is average in the class. There's an optional real-time AWD with an intelligent control system for mild off-roading and all-weather capability.

In terms of power, the RAV4 is ahead of the CR-V with its 203 horses. When it comes to torque, the Ford Escape is the clear winner. Undoubtedly, the Honda CR-V is the lowest revving SUV with its CVT transmission whereas rivals offer automatic transmissions. Yet the CR-V is the fastest among the rivals with its surprising performance figures.

How well does the Honda CR-V Ride and Handle?

The Honda CR-V is one of the most balanced SUVs in its segment. With its front strut and rear multi-link suspension, it tackles sharp corners with limited body roll. To keep all four wheels on the road, you have front and rear stabilizer bars as well. That's why the CR-V remains stable at high speeds.

Also, you have a variable-ratio electric power steering that varies according to the speed and movement of the wheels. Thus, it makes it easier to handle the massive SUV. The low friction dampers keep the suspension soft and enhance the ride quality and comfort.

Honda CR-V Braking Performance

The 2020 Honda CR-V is equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes to ensure safe braking. The antilock braking is paired with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assistance that assists the driver when the brakes are applied. In terms of braking, you get 11.1-inch brake rotors at the front and 10.2-inch rotors at the back allowing the 3,337 lbs weighing SUV to stop at 125 feet of distance from 60 MPH.

As compared to its rivals, the CR-V has the smallest brake rotors size and still posts a decent stopping distance to inspire confidence. However, the lighter weight works in its favor as the CR-V stops at a shorter distance as compared to the heavier Sorento. The Ford Escape has the shortest stopping distance, thanks to its lightweight and bigger brake rotors.

Fuel Economy
8.0/10

With the turbocharged 4 cylinder engine and CVT,  the 2020 CR-V returns EPA estimated 28 MPG in the city, and 34 MPG on the highway. The AWD-equipped CR-V models get 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The standard 14.0-gallon fuel tank will get you a maximum driving range of 476 miles in mixed driving conditions. When equipped with the Real-time AWD system, the highway driving range drops to 448 miles. However, the CR-V has the best in class city mileage of 28 MPG.

The 2020 Kia Sorento evens out its poor fuel economy with a massive fuel tank. Both Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape give tough competition to the CR-V with their combined MPG ratings of 30 mpg. In the city, the CR-V is the best performer with its CVT transmission. The small fuel tank pulls the CR-V back as rivals have better fuel capacity, thus they deliver a better overall range.

Interior
7.5/10

"The CR-V's interior dimensions are generally larger than those of rivals, and rear-seating space is among the biggest you'll find in a small SUV." - Edmunds

The 2020 Honda CR-V is known for its interior quality and space inside the cabin and that's the case with the as well. The CR-V's interior offers a spacious cabin, designed with good quality materials and modern ergonomics. Apart from its roomiest interiors and enormous cargo area, the appearance of the cabin gets better as we move up the trim levels. Even with a massive dashboard, you have great outward visibility. The 2020 CR-V retains its traditional dashboard layout with few modern touches that include better quality, bigger infotainment, metal-look and leather treatment, a TFT gauge display, and a leather steering wheel with numerous controls.

The new dimensions of the CR-V make it the longest 2-row crossover SUV. It shares its width with the RAV4 and its height with the Escape. The Kia Sorento is comparatively bigger. The 104.8-inch wheelbase is the smallest in the whole segment but doesn't affect the balance and agility of the Honda CR-V. The CR-V's 8.2-inches of ground clearance and AWD drivetrain makes it ready to venture off-road (ground clearance drops to 7.8-inches on the front-drive CR-V). Some of the highlight exterior features are:

  • Chrome bar grille
  • 12 color options
