The HR-V returns unchanged for the 2020 model year.

Clever cargo solutions make it more versatile than rivals
Better than most competitors on fuel economy
Excellent outward visibility

Cons
Unimpressive power output results in lackluster acceleration
Palpable engine noise and vibration

The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.

Pros

Good value even at top trim
Tidy interior
Rides well

Cons

Pricey Touring trim

Honda made some superficial and mechanical changes to the HR-V for the previous model year, but it doesn't make any significant updates to the 2020 lineup.

Pros
Impressive fuel economy,
outstanding cargo storage,
durable and well-built interior.

Cons
Buzzy engine sounds,
choppy ride on rough roads,
top features reserved for top model.

The Encore GX, despite the familiar name, is an all-new model for Buick for 2020.Buick offers several attractive and comfortable crossovers, and the all-new Encore GX occupies the smaller end of that spectrum. The 2020 Buick Encore GX initially sounds as if it were a trim level that is offered on the subcompact Buick Encore, but it is actually its own, bigger model positioned below the compact Buick Envision. The Encore GX gives Buick another entry in the ever-popular crossover market, with its purposeful design and efficient packaging.
