Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Fresh-faced and better equipped, the 2020 CR-V is now an even more compelling choice among compact SUVs. Aside from the styling improvements versus last year's model, Honda is now offering a hybrid powertrain which consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors; the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder has been dropped and the previously optional turbocharged 1.5-liter engine is now standard on all non-hybrid CR-Vs. More standard and optional equipment enhances the CR-V's value for 2020, starting with a suite of driver-assistance features that includes automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control that will be standard on all models.

Pros
Classy interior trimmings, two fuel-efficient powertrains, voluminous cargo hold.

Cons
Lackluster infotainment performance, could be quicker in acceleration testing, limited towing capacity.

The 2020 Honda CR-V hits right at the heart of many buyers’ needs: comfortable, spacious, quiet, and efficient.

Pros
Streamlined powertrain lineup
Comfortable ride…
..and a comfortable interior
Affordable base trims
Intuitive and easy to use

Cons
Group-study looks
Base infotainment is lacking
Others go off road better

The 2020 Honda CR-V comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.Turbocharged 1.5-liter engine now standard.Advanced driver safety features standard on every trim level.Revised exterior styling.

Pros
Quick acceleration plus thrifty fuel economy
Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity
Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
Plentiful and thoughtful storage areas

Cons
Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob

We're torn between the EX and the EX-L. The latter has desirable luxury features such as leather upholstery, a programmable power liftgate and a premium audio system. We liked it enough to buy one for our long-term test fleet.

PROS
Turbocharged engine delivers a rare combination of thrift and zest
Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity for this class
Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
Plentiful and thoughtful storage areas

CONS
Optional navigation system isn't as reliable as expected
Base LX's engine is weaker and thirstier than the turbo
Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob

High-quality cabin
Supple ride
Good crash test scores

Cons
Few standard features

By:

The 2018 Honda CR-V may be light on personality, but this compact crossover checks off every other box. It’s a very smart choice.

Pros
Does nearly everything right
Exceptionally roomy interior
Good value
Lots of safety gear
Upscale feel

Cons
Odd styling
LX lacks important features
Hardly fun to drive
No high-performance version, if that matters
