Review and Test Drive: 2020 Honda CR-V Touring

 Since its launch in 1995, the Honda CR-V has been one of the best-selling vehicles in the United States. We last looked at the fourth generation CR-V in 2015, and the current fifth generation CR-V made its debut in 2016 at the North American International Auto Show and went on sale in December as a 2017 model.

Honda saw fit to refresh the CR-V for 2020 but didn’t tinker with what makes it a consistently good choice for many auto buyers. Notably, the refreshed model is the first CR-V to be available in North America equipped with a hybrid powertrain.

The front has been fitted with a revised fascia and a more dramatic looking grille, reshaped headlights, and new fog light surrounds, while the rear gets cool looking tinted taillights and exposed exhaust tips. 

Honda has added three new exterior colors, including a striking Aegean Blue Metallic, which is what our top-of-the-line Touring model was wearing when it joined our short-term press fleet, along with new handsome 19” wheels.

Under the hood, Honda has dropped the base, 2.4-liter inline four banger in favor of a turbocharged 1.5-literfour cylinder that is standard across the line.
