America’s best-selling CUV over the past 22 years is now being offered as a fuel-efficient hybrid and Illinois families are sure to love it. The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid features the same refined styling and spacious cabin as the gasoline-only model, but it raises expectations even higher for competing SUVs with Real Time AWD™ and Honda Sensing® offered as standard equipment. With this newest feat of automotive innovation, Honda continues to demonstrate their commitment to an electrified future.
Much like an electric-only vehicle, the CR-V Hybrid’s two-motor system is able to function without the need for a conventional automatic transmission, allowing for a smooth and seamless power delivery. Drivers are yet to see a CR-V that performs at such high levels, boasting 212 total system horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque, not to mention EPA-estimated mileage ratings of 40 city / 35 highway / 38 combined.* Furthermore, Honda’s battery enhancements have expanded the CR-V Hybrid’s electric-only (EV Mode) driving range.
Honda’s intelligent engineering is noticeable inside the cabin as well, packaging the CR-V Hybrid’s batteries beneath the rear flooring to retain the same, comfortable passenger volume and cargo capacity as the gasoline-only model. Other hybrid-exclusive features include a push-button gear selector with three distinct driving modes, a Power Flow Monitor within the digital gauge cluster to track your performance, and steering wheel-mounted deceleration selectors that allow you to increase or decrease regenerative braking—which helps charge the battery when you release the accelerator pedal.
Remaining inside, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid is brimming with available, advanced connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, SMS text message functionality, HondaLink®, and a wireless phone charger. Every 2020 CR-V Hybrid trim level also comes standard-equipped with the Honda Sensing® suite which includes technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, and Road Departure Mitigation.
The CR-V Hybrid’s exterior is distinguished from the rest of the CR-V lineup by its dynamic front and rear styling cues that include 5-lamp LED fog lights, a unique rear bumper design, and Hybrid badging on the grille, front fenders, and tailgate. From its sporty redesign and innovative hybrid powertrain to its unmatched reputation for safety and value, Honda’s new iteration of the CR-V once again sets the bar for crossover SUVs.
