Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Honda CR-V

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 9, 2020
  • Refreshed 2020 CR-V is here
  • Rebates: Up to $1,250 off
  • Lease: From $249/mo.
  • Finance: From 1.9% APR

2020 CR-V gets new look and base engine:

The carryover 2019 Honda CR-V remains in stock, and its offers get a few small updates. Most of its offers focus on the LX trim, leaving the EX and higher trims, which include the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features, in the cold. Demand for the CR-V has been high, driving up prices, but there are some deals to help buyers out.

The 2020 Honda CR-V is arriving now. Initially, buyers will enjoy its light visual refresh and new standard 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. Soon, though, 2020 CR-V buyers will also have the option of adding Honda's two-motor hybrid powertrain that boasts 212 horsepower (compared to 190 hp in the regular CR-V). EPA figures and pricing are not yet available.

Offers listed here are available nationally and expire March 2, 2020.

Three cash offers:

Buyers can get a $500 unadvertised dealer cash incentive on the 2019 Honda CR-V, and they can combine this potential discount with the low APR terms below. Buyers in California, Florida, and Texas also get $250 in bonus unadvertised dealer cash.

Keep in mind, dealer cash is an incentive the manufacturer passes to the dealer to do with as they please. Some dealers pass a portion of or the entire incentive to buyers for additional savings, but others may keep it as profit. Because you are never guaranteed the entire incentive, we suggest shopping around for the best offer in your area.

Honda also offers a $500 loyalty cash bonus for current CR-V owners or a $500 conquest bonus those switching from a newer competing vehicle.

If you qualify for both unadvertised incentives and the loyalty or conquest bonus, you could rake in up to $1,250 in discounts.

There are no cash incentives on the 2020 CR-V.

Lease from $249 per month

The 2019 CR-V LX runs $249 per month for 36 months with $2,699 due at signing. With a $324 effective monthly cost, this is not a good value relative to its $25,545 MSRP. All-wheel drive costs an extra $10 per month and $200 at signing. This is not a good value relative to its MSRP either.

There are many other lease offers in the table below. If value is what you seek, the EX and higher trims offer plenty of it relative to their respective MSRPs.

The refreshed 2020 CR-V has no promotional lease offers yet.

Finance from 1.9% and cash:

Qualified buyers can finance the 2019 CR-V at 1.9% APR for 36 months, 2.9% for 60 months, or 3.9% for 72 months. They can also combine these APR offers with the unadvertised incentives above.

There are no APR offers on the 2020 CR-V yet.

2020 Honda CR-V Overview

Matthew Pilgrim
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Honda CR-V arrives on schedule with a mid-cycle refresh. It features updated front and rear exterior styling, including new headlight designs, while the interior benefits from a redesigned center console.

The biggest updates affect the base LX trim. It now gets the Honda Sensing suite of active safety features and the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine standard. The former 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine has been dropped from the lineup.

Additionally, the range-topping Touring trim adds a heated steering wheel and wireless smartphone charging as standard equipment for the 2020 model year.

Choosing Your Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is available in four trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Pricing starts at $26,170 including destination for the updated LX and climbs up to $34,370 for the Touring.

Engine Choices

All CR-V’s receive the company’s 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. The power is routed through a continuously variable transmission to the front wheels as standard. All-wheel drive is available across the lineup for $1,500.

The CR-V earns an EPA-estimated 28 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 30 combined, or 27/32/29 mpg (city/highway/combined) with AWD.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The compact CR-V has a five-passenger capacity, and Honda struts its interior packaging know-how with 40.4 inches of rear legroom. It boasts 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 75.8 cubic feet with the second row folded down.

Safety Features

For 2020, all trims receive the Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. The bundle includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and lane departure warning. Automatic high beams are also standard.

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert become standard starting on the EX.

The NHTSA gave the CR-V a five-star overall safety rating, the highest possible. It failed to earn a designation from the IIHS due to its headlights, but it scored high marks in all crash tests and the front crash prevention avoidance and mitigation testing.


While the base LX benefits from a new engine and safety features, it's still held back by a 5-inch color display. It does come with Bluetooth, Pandora compatibility, and one USB port.

More buyers will want to move up to at least the EX to get the 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, satellite radio, HD radio, and three additional USB ports. The Touring trim brings navigation and a wireless phone charger.

LX - From $26,170

While the LX features the updated engine and active safety equipment, it's still a pretty basic crossover. Highlights include remote entry, automatic climate control, and 17-inch alloy wheels, but it's held back by halogen headlights and a six-way manual driver's seat.

EX - From $28,680

The EX brings some welcome upgrades, including the 7-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Day-to-day livability is enhanced with a moonroof, heated front seats, a 12-way power driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start.

The exterior is enhanced with LED fog lights, 18-inch wheels, heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, and body-colored door handles, side mirrors, and roofline spoiler.

EX-L - From $31,170

The EX-L trim adds leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Other upgrades include a power tailgate with programmable height, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a four-way power passenger's seat, and memory functionality for the driver's seat.

Touring - From $34,370

The Touring trim entices with several notable exterior upgrades like LED headlights, a hands-free tailgate, 19-inch wheels, rain-sensing windshield wipers, chrome exterior trim, and roof rails. The cabin is enhanced with a heated steering wheel, ambient interior lighting, and wireless phone charging.

CarsDirect Tip

Honda prides itself as offering the best value no matter the price. The 2020 Honda CR-V delivers in this regard, even in the competitive compact crossover segment. We'd stick with the EX trim to get the updated infotainment system and the best bang for the buck.
