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.
