The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid features updates including innovative two-motor hybrid technology, standard Honda Sensing and Real-Time AWD, and improved battery performance.
The 2020 CR-V Hybrid will be arriving at dealerships a powerful and fuel-efficient CR-V*. The CR-V Hybrid has an estimated EPA Fuel Economy rating of 40 mpg and Honda’s latest refined two-motor hybrid technology with improved all-electric operating range*.
The 2020 CR-V Hybrid is differentiated by the rest of the CR-V lineup by unique front and rear styling cues that include Hybrid badging on the grille, front fenders, and tailgate. Also, the Hybrid features hybrid-exclusive 5-lamp LED fog lights and a unique rear bumper design.
The Hybrid also benefits from new headlight designs, and new alloy wheel designs.
Inside of the CR-V Hybrid offers the same spacious, tech-savvy cabin as the non-hybrid models. This includes the full-flat folding and 60/40-split second row seat. Unique to the Hybrid are three buttons to the right of the push-button gear selector that let the driver choose between three driving modes; Sport, EV, and Econ.
All-Wheel Drive Powertrain
The two-motor hybrid system is similar to the one used in the Honda Accord Hybrid with additional advancements to the Hybrid battery’s operating range. These advancements include more time in EV mode than previous Honda hybrids.
The 2020 CR-V Hybrid’s Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System uses special software to determine traction conditions and when torque is best sent to the rear wheels in low traction conditions, when AWD is most useful. When the system is not needed, an electronically controlled clutch deactivates power delivery to the rear wheels to improve fuel efficiency.
Advanced Safety and Driver-Assistive Technologies
The CR-V Hybrid comes standard with the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. Honda Sensing includes:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System
- Forward Collision Warning
- Pedestrian Sensing Capability
- Road Departure Mitigation
- Lane Departure Warning
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Keeping Assist
Available Honda Sensing features include Blind Spot Information, Rear Cross traffic Monitor and Auto High Beam Headlights. The 2020 CR-V Hybrid also incorporates the latest generation of Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure and targets the highest collision-safety ratings.
