The 2020 Honda CR-V gains a host of revisions to keep it at the top of the pile of compact crossover SUVs. The two most significant: The 1.5-liter turbo engine is standard across all trim levels—no more underpowered 2.4-liter non-turbo engine—as are the Honda Sensing® driver aids. That means that even the base LX model gets the efficient and powerful engine and gains adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, and lane-keeping assist all under the Honda Sensing banner.
That's certain to appeal to the family buyers that the CR-V attracts. So, too, is the spacious interior: The CR-V is among the roomiest cars among rivals for five passengers and luggage. Even with the base LX getting the better engine and driver assistance equipment, we think the EX, which sits below the EX-L and Touring, is a sweet spot since it includes some real convenience features like heated front seats, a power driver's seat, push-button start and keyless entry, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration via a 7-inch touchscreen. Also new for 2020 is a separate Honda CR-V Hybrid model that combines a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with a battery and electric motor for a combined 212-hp output. It's a slick integration, but for all its smoothness the hybrid isn't as much of a fuel-sipper in real-world use as some rivals (per testing from our partners at Edmunds). Stick with a regular CR-V, and you really can't go wrong, especially with the 2020 improvements.

Max towing capacity
One of the best qualities of the 2020 Honda CR-V is its cargo space. With the rear seats up, there is still plenty of room for all your passengers' luggage. The 60/40 split-folding rear seat makes it easy to expand that cargo capacity too, making the CR-V versatile enough to tackle plenty of different types of trips. Folding the rear seats down will provide you with 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
The 2020 Honda CR-V comes with two great engine options: a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder that comes standard, and the available 2.0L hybrid that's paired with two electric motors. The 1.5L turbo engine is rated at 190 horsepower, while the 2.0L hybrid is rated slightly higher at 212 horsepower when combined with the electric motors. Both engine options are backed by a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which provides a smooth delivery of power.
2020 introduces a suite of standard driver-assistance features to the CR-V. Adaptive cruise control allows you to set your speed and let the car do the work if a vehicle ahead slows down, while the lane-keeping assistance will keep your CR-V centered in your lane. Pedestrian detection is designed to keep you aware, and automated emergency braking is designed to hit the brakes for you should an impact be imminent. These driver aids make the 2020 CR-V a great choice.
Front-wheel drive is standard on the 2020 Honda CR-V, but AWD is an available option on all trim levels of the CR-V. When equipped with AWD, the CR-V is a competent companion when the weather turns and road surfaces get tough. The Honda CR-V is popular among those who love the outdoors and want the confidence that their vehicle will get them across uncertain terrain.
The Honda CR-V is loaded with features that make it easy to live with, and it won't beat you up over a long road trip. Automatic climate control is standard, allowing you and your passengers to set the desired temperature and ride in comfort. All trim levels also come standard with one-touch up and down front windows, which makes stops at the ATM, car wash, and drive-through a breeze. Opting for the EX trim will get you heated
