The verdict: An efficient, versatile SUV with a surprising appetite for cargo, the 2020 Honda CR-V would benefit from more off-the-line power, ride comfort and an agreeable multimedia system. The new hybrid boosts mileage by 31% combined but has modest passing power.

Versus the competition: The Volkswagen Tiguan is more enjoyable khổng lồ drive, the Jeep Cherokee has off-road capability and the Hyundai Tucson is value packed, but the CR-V is a balanced competitor with exceptional cargo space. The new hybrid falls shy of the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid in mileage và passing nguồn but has a bigger backseat.

Just shy of a year ago, I characterized the Honda CR-V as a leader that was losing its lead — not in sales, because it remained one of the best-selling SUVs in the U.S. Market (it currently trails only the redesigned Toyota RAV4), but because it needed updates. Honda made some updates for 2020, including the welcome addition of a hybrid version và the elimination of a lesser engine for the base trim level, but otherwise, the changes don’t qualify as major improvements. This đánh giá covers both a gas-only 2020 CR-V Limited we tested at thaicuc3d.vn’s Chicago headquarters and two versions of the Hybrid I drove in and around Tucson, Ariz., at a national introduction hosted by Honda. (Per our ethics policy, thaicuc3d.vn pays its travel and lodging expenses for such events.)

To be clear, in case I harp on a few things below, the CR-V is a very good choice. As we disclaimed in our 2019 Compact SUV Challenge, all seven of our contestants were strong; that’s how competitive this class is. All the same, the CR-V did come in fourth place overall, và the aspects that hurt its ranking were not the ones Honda addressed for 2020.

I’ll discuss the CR-V Hybrid along with the regular one because it’s worth anyone’s consideration. There’s a lot of talk about plug-in electrics right now, but the big plus of a hybrid is that the ownership experience is identical khổng lồ what everyone’s accustomed to. Between this và range per tankful that’s longer than average rather than shorter (as with battery-electrics), a high-volume hybrid like the CR-V with its reduced carbon emissions can represent more substantial carbon savings than American buyers are likely khổng lồ be coaxed to achieve with plug-ins as they exist today — even if they vày have zero tailpipe emissions.

Honda CR-V Hybrid MPG, Price

After 19.4 miles of mixed driving in the CR-V Hybrid’s regular (not Econ) mode, my trip computer read 44.2 mpg. After another 15.6 miles at somewhat higher speeds, my co-driver clocked 41.4 mpg. The weather was a hybrid-favorable 72 degrees và overcast.

CR-V Vs. CR-V Hybrid Acceleration

Honda correctly claims that the CR-V Hybrid is quicker off the line than the non-hybrid. So is a kid on a tricycle. One of our biggest complaints about the gas-only CR-V is how poky it is from a standing start: Stomp on the pedal and the CR-V moves but covers practically no ground for two or three seconds, traversing just a oto length or two. You can get used to it, & some drivers might not notice because once you get moving, the nguồn is pretty good, even if continuously variable automatic transmissions aren’t our favorite.

So, yes, the hybrid is quicker off the line than the regular CR-V, but it’s not setting any records. Technically, Honda’s two-motor hybrid system doesn’t have a transmission at all, or even a power-split device like Toyotas & many others. I’ll try not to get too technical, but this comes into play in some important ways. At low speeds, the CR-V Hybrid operates as a series hybrid in which the electric motor propels it, powered by the battery and/or the smaller motor, which operates only as a generator at any time (even though it’s part of a two-“motor” system), & driven by the gas engine.

Even though the drivetrain isn’t varying ratios lượt thích many hybrids do, there’s still some rubber-band effect at lower speeds, a delay when you press on the accelerator while you wait for the engine khổng lồ rev và the vehicle lớn respond. It’s not as bad as an early hybrid or even some of the more common current types, but it still seemed lượt thích there was delay as the engine drove the generator that in turn powered the electric drive motor. It also included some of the engine droning that accompanies many hybrids.

Overall power nguồn is pretty good and admirably consistent for a vehicle with no transmission. If anything, the hybrid seems to sacrifice high-speed passing for its off-the-line advantage. The secret to lớn the regular 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder’s efficiency is that it isn’t overwhelmingly powerful, but I recall it having decent passing nguồn at highway speeds; the hybrid, on the other hand, felt borderline at speeds around 55 mph, and where I drove, it wasn’t particularly hilly or high in elevation. At higher speeds, a clutch engages that allows the engine khổng lồ drive the wheels directly, with the larger motor-generator assisting. Honda cites peak system horsepower of 212 for the hybrid drivetrain versus 190 for the gas-only version.

2020 Honda CR-V | thaicuc3d.vn photo by Christian LantryI’m not sure I buy it, at least not at highway speeds. The problem is that there’s no transmission lớn force the gas engine into its most powerful range. Along with the two electric motors, the hybrid drivetrain uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine without a turbocharger rated at 143 horsepower at 6,200 rpm. Honda said it was too complicated to lớn specify at what tốc độ or phối of conditions the system achieves 212 hp, but it’s unlikely the engine is close khổng lồ its peak at 55-70 mph. My guess is the hybrid has less power nguồn to hotline on in normal driving — plus an extra 194 pounds of weight versus an equivalent non-hybrid CR-V to lớn overcome.

Braking

When it comes to braking, any non-hybrid has a theoretical advantage because — barring terrible engineering or defects — conventional brakes feel more natural và linear. That’s the case for the regular CR-V. The hybrid employs regenerative braking, và the pedal feel is pretty good for a hybrid by today’s standards, and better than the RAV4 Hybrid — but I’ll get lớn my RAV4 comparison in a bit. (Note that I’m talking about the braking experience here, not braking distances, which have to be tested under controlled conditions.)

I admit frustration with Honda’s regenerative braking màn chơi adjustment, which employs steering-wheel paddles. One increases the regeneration (resulting in more pronounced deceleration when you lift off the accelerator pedal) and the other decreases it again. No problem in theory, as some other brands do the same. The problem is that, as in other Hondas, the regeneration level you choose doesn’t stay; it defaults after a few seconds or after you come to lớn a stop. Maddening. It’s more of a problem with a plug-in lượt thích our 2019 Eco-Friendly car of the Year winner, the Clarity PHEV, but still … Only when driving in thể thao mode vày these settings hold, but if the goal of more regen is efficiency, that’s in conflict with how sport mode operates. Little code changes like this lớn satisfy customers would make Hondas better products, but as it stands, the company is not one of the growing number of brands with updatable vehicles.

Ride and Handling

The CR-V has excellent steering feel & precision, and this translates khổng lồ the hybrid. One of the things I don’t love about the CR-V is how firmly it rides even with smaller wheels. Around Chicago, where the roads are generally awful, it had a busier, bumpier ride than every competitor in our Challenge but the sloppy 2019 Nissan Rogue, with noticeable pitching motions. The suspension doesn’t feel unsophisticated, just firm. Though the CR-V isn’t the shortest compact SUV in terms of overall length, it does have a short wheelbase, which can result in more toàn thân motion, all other factors being equal.
