What are the performance capabilities of the 2020 Honda CR-V?

2020 Honda CR-V Performance Specs

The 2020 Honda CR-V was last redesigned for the 2017 model year. Each year, it’s continued to boast the substantial strengths of that model, with select improvements and alterations being made. For 2020, performance gets a pleasant boost thanks to the standardization of the vehicle’s turbocharged engine; the previously-standard naturally-aspirated four-cylinder has been tossed to the wayside. With this exciting news in mind, you’re likely wondering: what are the performance specs and capabilities of the 2020 Honda CR-V?

Engine

The 2020 Honda CR-V comes with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine in every trim level, which manages to pump out 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. This engine proudly boasts ample power and swift acceleration that will satisfy the needs of most crossover drivers.

Transmission

The 2020 Honda CR-V comes standard with a continuously-variable automatic transmission. This shifter has been praised as being smoother than that of rivals. An available Sport mode brings added responsiveness to the 2020 CR-V, keeping in mind that this is still a practicality-oriented crossover SUV and not a sports car.

Drivetrain

All-wheel drive is available as an option for the 2020 Honda CR-V. This feature is great for enhancing off-road capability and the ability to traverse a multitude of terrain. It can help your vehicle get moving in the snow and other slippery conditions, although note that it is not an all-encompassing solution for handling in inclement weather.

Fuel Economy

With front-wheel drive, the 2020 Honda CR-V gets up to 28 miles-per-gallon in the city and 34 on the highway. When fitted with AWD, those figures drop by one mpg, respectively.* These are, frankly, fantastic figures for a nonhybrid compact SUV. The 2020 CR-V also runs happily using regular unleaded gasoline, unlike many rivals.

Handling

The 2020 Honda CR-V has been praised for its comfortable ride, which is an important perk for a commuter/compact family vehicle. The handling is slightly weaker than a few more performance-oriented rivals, but the ride benefits from minimal body lean and responsive steering. A cushy suspension soaks up road imperfections with admirable poise.
