The 2020 Honda CR-V : Great Features, Affordable Price
The 2020 Honda CR-V – 33 Million Canadians Can’t Be Wrong
In an increasingly competitive SUV market, it takes something special to make an impact. The Honda CR-V is a sports utility stalwart that’s stood the test of time, steadily growing in sales since its Canadian launch in 2004. With a new refresh of the model recently released, what does the 2020 Honda CR-V offer to keep it at the front of the compact crossover pack?
2020 Honda CR-V Powertrain and Performance
As with previous years’ models, the 2020 CR-V comes equipped with a 1.5L 4-cylinder gasoline engine. However, the engine is now turbocharged as standard. This upgraded configuration produces an admirable 190 horsepower, which is passed through continuously variable transmission to full-time, all-wheel drive on all models, except the front-wheel drive LX base trim. The relatively low engine capacity means fuel economy is good for a car of its size, with figures of 8.4L /100km in the city and 7L / 100km on the highway. However, the turbocharged engine means it feels in no way underpowered.
New Hybrid Option
The 2020 CR-V lineup features a welcome new addition in the form of an all-new hybrid model. Boasting dual electric motors to back up the 2.0L 4-cylinder gas engine, the hybrid delivers a combined total of 212 horsepower, upping the performance ante compared to the gas model. However, this increased power doesn’t come at the cost of fuel economy, with the hybrid version delivering an estimated 5L / 100km for city driving. As with the gasoline versions, the hybrid CR-V uses continuously variable automatic transmission to power the all-wheel drive.
The 2020 CR-V builds on the comforts offered by previous versions, based around an advanced entertainment system with touchscreen control. Bluetooth streaming is standard, with device connectivity provided by Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Siri Eyes Free compatibility. Passenger comfort in all weathers is ensured by a dual-zone automatic air conditioning system, along with full HVAC with underseat and console ducts as standard.
2020 Honda CR-V Price
Despite its great range of features and performance capabilities, the 2020 Honda CR-V remains an affordable way of driving a crossover. Starting at just $28,690 for the entry-level LX trim, the range rises to a still-affordable $42,590 for the top-of-the-range Black Edition.To experience the CR-V for yourself, contact us online, by phone, or in person at our offices to arrange a test drive.
