Future owners of the 2020 CR-V who would like to integrate their compatible smartphone into their daily commute will need to choose EX trims and higher. Each crossover SUV has two rows of seating that will be able to comfortably and safely accommodate five passengers.

Performance Specs

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.
