The top-line change that has been made for the 2020 Honda CR-V is the standard powertrain found on all four trims. Owners will have a turbocharged 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood that is attached to a continuously variable transmission. It will produce 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, customers can choose to have either front- or all-wheel-drive equipped on all coming versions of the 2020 Honda CR-V. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 uses a slightly larger naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that makes a bit more power. However, independent reviews have taken the Toyota RAV4’s engine to task for a lack of acceleration.
