2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid for Sale in Lincoln, RI
The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid is finally here, giving the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid its most direct rival. Distinguishing this version from the regular CR-V is its blue Honda logo, distinct fog lights, unique rear bumper with hidden exhaust pipe, and the inclusion of some high-end amenities on the less-expensive trim levels. Also, despite the additional space needed to accommodate its special system components, the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid maintains the conventional CR-V’s balance of interior space, superior driving dynamics, and passenger comfort by housing the compact intelligent power unit (IPU) containing the hybrid battery pack underneath the cargo floor. All that said, the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid has clear potential to be a class leader in now and beyond, and if you’re interested in learning more, you’ll find the appealing details below.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid is offered in the same LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels as the gasoline-only version. Powering each is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, an AC-synchronous electric motor, and a lithium-ion battery pack paired to an electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT). Although all-wheel drive is optional on the regular version, it’s standard on the hybrid. The total system output is 212 hp, and fuel economy is excellent at 40 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. There’s even an Eco Assist system for all trim levels that shows drivers in real time how their driving habits affect overall fuel economy.
Comfort and Safety
Honda has set up the base LX nicely with automatic climate control, a sunglasses holder, push-button start, a retractable cargo area cover, and a 60/40 spilt-folding second-row seatback. The EX adds a sunroof, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. The EX-L gets a power tailgate, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a HomeLink remote system, leather-trimmed seats, a power-adjustable passenger’s seat, and ambient interior lighting. The Touring is the most loaded trim, with its automatic LED headlights, hands-free access to the tailgate, and roof rails.
All versions of the 2020 CR-V Hybrid come with the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technologies. This standard package includes lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, and road departure mitigation. The EX and above trims add to the active safety features with a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert.
Infotainment and Technology
The LX is supplied with a 5-inch infotainment touchscreen, a four-speaker audio system, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, a USB data port, and a 12-volt power outlet. The EX and EX-L upgrade the system with a 7-inch touchscreen, an eight-speaker audio system, two second-row USB charge ports, HondaLink connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and satellite and HD radio. The Touring provides integrated navigation with voice recognition, a nine-speaker audio system, and a wireless smartphone charger.
