The 2020 Honda CR-V is a compact SUV that is fun to drive and delivers great fuel efficiency in the class. The refreshed CR-V's interior comes packed with upscale interior features, materials, and most importantly, ample space for passengers and cargo. The CR-V is one of the few vehicles in the segment to offer a 60/40 split second-row seat that folds flat. Also new for 2020 is a redesigned center console with USB ports that are easier to access, ‘smoke chrome’ trim below the rear window, and new color choices of Aegean Blue metallic, Sonic Gray pearl, and the Radiant Red metallic.

Another important upgrade is that the base engine has been dropped from the lineup and the previously optional turbo unit has been made standard. There's a new Honda CR-V Hybrid whose interior is mostly similar to the 2020 CR-V with a few updates. The 2020 Honda CR-V comes with a starting price tag of $26,325 and goes against compact SUVs like Toyota RAV4Mazda CX-5, and Nissan Rogue.

2020 Honda CR-V Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

Besides its sharp exterior outlook, the sumptuous cabin is the 2020 CR-V’s strong point. For 2020 MY, Honda completely restyled the CR-V's interior with better quality materials and a new layout. It now feels more spacious and premium than the previous model. Also, the refreshed CR-V boasts the most stylish dashboard in its class. It comes with a cockpit-styled gear console and is canted at a 45-degree angle for better ergonomics. Moreover, all the trims feature a leather-trimmed dashboard, but the inserts vary with the trims.

The base CR-V LX trim is accented with metal-look interior accents and black plastic inserts but as you move up the trim ladder you can find wooden inserts and piano black accents. Apart from that, you can also find a leather-trimmed, multifunction, heated steering wheel in EX-L trim and above.

Coming to the interior seating space and comfort, the 2020 CR-V has one of the largest cabins in the segment with a passenger volume rated at 105.9 cubic feet. With two rows of seating, the Honda's SUV can seat 5 people comfortably and the seats are wrapped in cloth upholstery. The base LX trim comes equipped with manually-adjustable front seats but that can be upgraded to power-adjustable front bucket seats wrapped in leather upholstery in EX-L and above. The seats feel very comfortable thanks to the soft cushioning and you have plenty of legroom even for taller adults.

For extra comfort, the front seats can be optioned with lumbar support, memory settings, and a heating function. Coming to the rear, you get a 60/40 split-folding bench seat standard that can accommodate three people easily. Similar to the front, the rear seats feel very cozy and have plenty of legroom on offer. At legroom front/rear: 41.3 in / 40.4, the CR-V has adequate passenger room in the front as well as the back.

All cars in the competition provide seating for 5 people as standard. However, the 2020 Nissan Rogue has the most spacious cabin in the competition courtesy of its tall ride height. However, the design looks a bit dated compared to the refreshed CR-V’s cabin. 2020 Mazda CX-5 comes second in terms of passenger volume and seating space. Moreover, it oozes premium vibes. But when it comes to legroom, none of the cars in the competition offer balanced space between the two rows except the Honda CR-V.

2020 Honda CR-V Infotainment Features

The 2020 Honda CR-V comes equipped with a 5-inch infotainment display and a 4-speaker stereo system. The base infotainment unit is sparsely equipped and is devoid of modern connectivity such as Apple Carplay. As you move up the trim ladder, you get a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen display. The display is great but the touch response is a little slow. Almost all the infotainment functions are to be controlled via the display except the climate control unit which can be controlled via physical knobs and buttons.

Other infotainment features include HD Radio, satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, navigation, and wireless device charging. Moreover, you can upgrade the audio system to either a 6-speaker stereo when you get the CR-V EX trim or an 8-speaker stereo unit if you get the EX-L trim. Opting for the top-end Honda CR-V Touring trim gets you a 9-speaker premium sound system.

Key Infotainment Features

  • 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen with the Next Generation HondaLink interface
  • 9-speaker premium audio system
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Bluetooth HandsFree and audio streaming
  • HD Radio
  • Wireless charging
  • Voice-assisted navigation system with multi-language support

2020 Honda CR-V Cargo Space

 The 2020 Honda CR-V offers a great 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, which can swallow a generous number of bags and suitcases. For loading larger and heavier items, you can fold the split-folding rear seats down which increases the capacity to 75.8 cubic feet. Apart from the classy interior and a decent infotainment system, the 2020 CR-V is known for its practicality.

Moreover, the rear decklid is large; so loading and unloading isn’t a hassle. The 2020 CR-V hybrid has an impressive 39 cubic feet of space behind the second-row seat and 75.8 cubic feet when the seat is folded down.

The 2020 CR-V offers the most cargo space among the competition in the compact SUV class. Nissan Rogue comes with the second-best standard cargo capacity but when you fold down the rear seats, the RAV4 offers almost equal space. Mazda CX-5, however, concentrated more on the interior part and since it is smaller, its cargo capacity took a hit.

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

At the front, you can find a mobile compartment paired with a wireless mobile phone charger, two heated cup holders, a storage compartment under the armrest, and door bins on each door. Coming to the rear, you can find two cup holders, front seatback pockets, and two-door bins.

2020 Honda CR-V Interior Features

The 2020 Honda CR-V is a tech-savvy crossover, offering a wide array of features that can help you stay connected, entertained, and safe on the roads. The entry-level LX comes standard with cloth-trimmed seats, manually-adjustable front bucket seats, foldable rear seats, automatic climate control, and an adjustable cargo floor height function. Moving up to the EX trim adds dual-zone automatic climate control, moonroof, remote start, proximity keyless entry, power-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats.

As you move up to the EX-L trim, you will get leather upholstery, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and a power liftgate. The top-of-the-line CR-V Touring model comes standard with wooden interior accents, a hands-free liftgate, a heated steering wheel, and ambient interior lighting. The 2020 Honda CR-V SUV is a newly redesigned crossover SUV available in eight exterior colors and three interior color choices.

2020 Honda CR-V Interior Verdict

The 2020 Honda CR-V comes with a great cabin that comfortably seats five. From its spacious interior cabin to its sleek exterior, the 2020 Hond CR-V dimensions demonstrate the expert craftsmanship of this Honda SUV. Both rows feel very roomy, especially the rear seat which offers adequate legroom for tall adults. One of the main reasons the Honda CR-V is the best-selling compact SUV is simple: loads of great features thrown in. The quality of materials used inside is excellent, so the cabin feels top-notch from every angle. And most importantly, its practicality is on point. So, if you are looking for an SUV that can accommodate your family and their precious luggage, then the 2020 CR-V is your best bet for its price.
