What to Expect in the New 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid

The most powerful, refined and fuel-efficient Honda CR-V is here. The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid arrived with a whopping 40 mpg EPA city fuel economy rating*, plus, improved acceleration and a further refined version of Honda’s latest generation of two-motor hybrid technology with improved all-electric operating range. Let’s take a look at what to expect in the new 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid now available at Tracy Honda.

Standard Real Time AWD

The new 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid comes with standard Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System. This all wheel drive system gives drivers added confidence in any driving condition.

Standard Honda Sensing®

Honda Sensing®, Honda’s suite of advanced driver assistance safety technologies, now comes standard on the CR-V Hybrid. Honda Sensing® includes: 

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning and pedestrian sensing capability
  • Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow and Lane Keeping Assist 

Additional available driver-assistive technologies include:

  • Blind spot information
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor 
  • Auto High Beam headlights.

Plus, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid also features Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure. And touts some top notch safety accolades, including a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which includes a SUPERIOR rating for frontal crash prevention with Honda Sensing.

Distinct Exterior Styling

Separating itself from the rest of the CR-V lineup, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid delivers up its own unique design cues, including: 

  • hybrid grille badging
  • unique front fenders and tailgate
  • hybrid-exclusive 5-lamp LED fog lights
  • unique rear bumper design

Plus, like other new CR-V variants, the CR-V Hybrid features new headlight designs, new alloy wheel designs for EX and EX-L trims, and new 19-inch wheels on Touring trims.

Interior Desires

In addition to its standard Smart Entry and Pushbutton Start, and standard cargo cover, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid delivers the same roomy, well-connected interior found in non-hybrid variants. 

Plus, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid includes full-flat folding and 60/40-split second-row seat. Exclusive to the CR-V Hybrid is its push-button gear selector that allows the driver to maximize power or fuel-efficiency by switching between Sport, EV and ECON modes.

All-Wheel Drive Hybrid Powertrain

Similar to the two-motor hybrid systems used in the Honda Accord Hybrid, the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid allows for more time in EV mode thanks to advancements made to the battery’s operating range. The two-motor hybrid-electric powertrain combines a high-efficiency 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle engine with an electric propulsion motor that produces 232 lb.-ft. of torque, for a total system output of 212 horsepower. 

Requiring no input from the driver, the CR-V Hybrid seamlessly shifts between three distinct drive mode — EV Drive, Hybrid Drive, and Engine Drive — to maximize efficiency.
