2020 Honda CR-V Review
Many people have shifted from driving full-size SUVs to smaller, compact models for a multitude of reasons. They often provide better gas mileage while retaining ample interior space as well as off-road and light towing capabilities.
However, with so many different models available to take on the roads of Centennial, Aurora, and Denver, we at Mile High Honda wanted to help inform local drivers about the updated Honda CR-V. If you’re in the market for a new compact SUV, keep reading our 2020 Honda CR-V review to get an in-depth look.
2020 Honda CR-V: Nimble and Versatile
Unlike the previous generation, all gas-powered 2020 CR-V models will now be factory equipped with a 1.5-liter VTEC™ Turbo engine. It’s mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control Logic, which allows you to take more control over your driving experience. Together, this configuration generates up to 190 horsepower.
As for the Honda hybrid CR-V, you’ll find two electric motors combined with a 2.0-liter DOHC engine. The hybrid variant will not only offer a substantially increased fuel economy, but also raw power. This system produces a total output up to 212 horsepower. Either engine you opt for will be fun to drive and responsive.

2020 CR-V: Well-Styled Inside & Out
There are some updates to the exterior that provide the 2020 Honda CR-V with a more assertive and robust appearance. You’ll notice that the fog lights are completely flush with the bumper, giving the CR-V smoother lines. The regular EX, EX-L, and Touring trims are standardly fitted with striking round LED fog lights while the hybrid models have distinctive bar-type lights with five LEDs.
Other exterior design changes were made to the rear, such as darkly tinted taillights, an exclusive bumper for hybrid models, and newly designed wheels. Let’s talk about the 2020 CR-V model’s updated interior. All hybrid CR-V models have a push-button start with three adjacent, selectable driving modes.
When it comes to entertainment and navigation, the available 7-inch touchscreen display ready with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ should be sufficient. Here, you can easily access connected apps to listen to music or go to a new coffee shop. Additionally, the CR-V driver’s seat is 8-way power-adjustable, so you can get there comfortably.
2020 Honda CR-V: Safety Is Always First
This newly refined 2020 CR-V comes standard with the entire Honda Sensing® suite, bringing the Honda lineup to nearly complete coverage. These driver-assistive technologies include a Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) and a Road Departure Mitigation System.
With the CMBS™, your vehicle can automatically apply brake pressure if it has detected an imminent frontal collision. The CR-V is built on the Honda next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure, which is meant to absorb and redistribute impact energy away from the passenger cabin.
This array also features an Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and Lane Keeping Assist System. The ACC is designed to help ensure a safe following distance behind the vehicle in front of you during highway driving.
