2020 Honda CR-V Gets A Refresh And A New Hybrid Version

Honda announced the refreshed 2020 CR-V and an all-new hybrid version, the manufacturer’s first hybrid-electric SUV.

Honda’s popular SUV just got a makeover for the 2020 MY. Indeed, the CR-V is sporting some exterior styling updates and upgraded powertrains. The SUV will become the brand’s first electrified SUV over here, in North America.

The 2020 Honda CR-V will come standard with the Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technology system. Also, the 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine will come standard in 2020 across all trims, something that was already the case in Canada.

Joining the Accord Hybrid, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid features the same 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine developing a combined total of 212 horsepower.

The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid will not lose any interior or cargo space as the battery pack is mounted under the cargo floor.

Honda didn’t give any fuel economy figures but mentioned that the CR-V Hybrid will get a 50% increase in the EPA city fuel economy rating compared to the “regular” CR-V.

“The Honda CR-V is the best-selling CUV over the past two decades and the updates we’ve made to the 2020 model, including a new hybrid-electric variant, solidify its position as a leader in the compact SUV market,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of Automobile Sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “The CR-V Hybrid also signifies our direction to bring Honda hybrid-electric technology to all core models and to invest in the production of electrified vehicles in America.”

The 2020 CR-V will go on sale this fall while the CR-V Hybrid will launch in early 2020. For now, though, the Honda CR-V Hybrid is not yet confirmed for Canada.
