Model Preview

The Honda CR-V had its last redesign in 2017, bringing in a new look and revolutionary changes under its hood. With this new look and powertrains still fresh, we expect the 2020 Honda CR-V to be a carryover model.

The current-generation CR-V’s looks were not a huge move away from the previous model, but they were significant enough to give this popular model new life. The updates included an all-new nose with a bold chrome grille strikethrough, brand-new headlights, new taillights and more. It was also longer and wider than before, which opened more cabin room. Speaking of the cabin, this was all-new in 2017 too with its plethora of soft-touch materials, new infotainment system, upgraded options, and ample cargo and passenger room. This has all remained essentially unchanged through 2019, and we expect the same in the 2020 CR-V.

The base CR-V LX is a little light on features as its only advanced goodies include a 5-inch infotainment screen, power windows, power locks, and Bluetooth. Fortunately, the rest of the lineup is well equipped with various options, including a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen, navigation, a power liftgate, and more. We expect the same standard features and options on the 2020 CR-V.

Honda CR-V

The new-generation CR-V brought in a new turbochargedpowertrain, but it also retained the 2.4-liter four-cylinder as the base powerplant. This engine cranks out 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. On EX and higher trims, the standard engine is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. Both engines pair with a continuously variable transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. We expect the 2020 Honda CR-V to have the same powertrain.

The current Honda CR-V is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, thanks to its “Good” test results in all the crash-safety tests and “Superior” front-crash prevention results. Keep in mind, the “Superior” rating in the latter test is with automatic emergency braking, which is standard on EX and higher trims but unavailable on the base LX model. We expect these ratings to remain the same in the 2020 Honda CR-V.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 Honda CR-V yet, but we expect it to arrive in the fall of 2019 based on previous CR-V release dates.

With no changes coming, we expect the 2020 Honda CR-V to carry on with pricing similar to the current model, which ranges from $25,395 to $35,195 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Honda CR-V will compete with the Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, and Ford Escape.
