Both the 2020 CR-V and 2020 Mazda CX-3 offer two rows of seating that can comfortably accommodate up to five passengers. However, the updated Honda CR-V is able to make more cargo storage available regardless of how the seats are configured. When the rear seats are holding people all four trims of the 2020 CR-V (LX, EX, EX-L and Touring) will offer 39.2 cubic-feet of cargo volume, with a maximum of 75.8 cubic-feet. Mazda CX-3 owners will have just 12.4 cubic-feet behind the rear seat and up to 44.5 with it folded down.

One of the most important changes made to the 2020 Honda CR-V is the standardization of the powertrain lineup. All four models coming to the Meridian Honda showroom will use a turbocharged 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a continuously variable transmission. It will make 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. Every version of the competing 2020 Mazda CX-3 will use a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine with a maximum output of 148 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. Even when this disparity in performance is taken into account, the 2020 Honda CR-V is able to almost equal the fuel economy scores* produced by the 2020 Mazda CX-3
