2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Review

The Honda CR-V is currently our top-ranked small SUV. It's roomy, practical and well built. How does Honda go up from there? Well, how about making it more fuel-efficient? Welcome to the 2020 CR-V Hybrid. This is the first time there's been a hybrid powertrain option for the Honda CR-V. In theory, it provides better fuel economy than the regular CR-V as well as more power. However, our real-world results — read our Expert Rating below to learn more — proved otherwise.
Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.9 / 10
It was merely a matter of time until Honda hybridized its wildly popular CR-V. Everything we've come to expect and admire about the standard CR-V has been carried over. But, as smoothly as the CR-V Hybrid drives, its lackluster acceleration leaves us wishing for just a bit more grunt. Also its fuel economy doesn't seem to be markedly better than the non-hybrid version's.

How does it drive?

8.0
The CR-V Hybrid sets the standard for this class thanks in large part to the unparalleled smoothness from its hybrid powertrain. The transition from the electric motor to the gas engine is seamless and rivals that of systems typically found on luxury cars costing twice as much.

The brakes are equally as smooth and deliver confident stops up to a traffic light or in a panic-braking situation. At our test track, the CR-V Hybrid shows excellent consistency, stopping from 60 mph in 125 feet. That's 6 feet shorter than the RAV4 Hybrid we tested.

But the CR-V Hybrid is let down by its lackluster acceleration. Even though it's more powerful than a standard CR-V on the spec sheet, our testing showed otherwise. The 0-60 mph sprint took 8.5 seconds, which is a full second slower than the non-hybrid model. Climbing longer grades takes a heavy foot, and you can hear the underpowered gasoline engine struggling to hold a steady speed.

How comfortable is it?

8.0
It's difficult to find fault here. From its accommodating seats to its extremely well-sorted ride, the CR-V Hybrid is comfortable for a wide variety of people. The climate control system has no trouble maintaining a comfortable temperature and can adequately cool rear passengers too.

Oddly enough, because the engine and transmission are so smooth, the Hybrid exposes a real lack of sound insulation in the CR-V. Road noise from other vehicles on the road is prevalent, and wind noise is pervasive at highway speeds.

How’s the interior?

8.0
With the exception of the push-button gear selector, there's not much to separate the CR-V Hybrid from the non-hybrid model, and that's fine by us. Thanks to its generous door openings and agreeable ride height, getting into the CR-V Hybrid is a breeze for all passengers. And once inside, the interior is spacious for all occupants. Even taller rear passengers will find more than enough legroom.

Visibility is generally good, especially looking forward thanks to slim windshield pillars and a relatively low hoodline. But a high beltline, no matter how tall the windows are, can make it difficult to see a car directly alongside you. And while rear visibility is fair, the high-contrast, low-resolution backup camera is not very clear in even the best conditions.

How’s the tech?

7.5
Tech is a bit of hit-and-miss. The CR-V's infotainment system looked sleek and attractive when it first came out for 2017, but by the latest standards it's showing its age. That's not to say it's poor, but offerings from Mazda and Hyundai are easier to use and nicer to look at.

Even though we weren't won over by our test vehicle's top-of-the line audio system — its sound quality was unremarkable — we were impressed with the number of charging options. With two USB ports for front passengers and two for rear passengers as well as an available wireless charging pad, every passenger's device should have power.

The CR-V's adaptive cruise control works well, as does the lane keeping function. Overall, the advanced driver aids are well calibrated to many different conditions.

How’s the storage?

8.5
The CR-V Hybrid offers 33.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity, which is good for the class. But it doesn't quite match the space on offer in the RAV4 Hybrid (37.5 cubic feet) or non-hybrid CR-V (39.2 cubes). Of course, 60/40-split folding rear seats increase the capacity and flexibility of the CR-V Hybrid. Lowering the seats is easy, and the seats fold relatively flat, but they're a bit heavy to lift back up into position.

Honda continues to impress with interior storage options. From rubber-lined hidden cubbies to various trays and pockets, both front and rear passengers should have ample room to store their personal items. Generous rear-seat space and easy-to-access anchors make installing car seats, even large ones, a breeze.

How economical is it?

7.0
The EPA's 38 mpg combined estimate (40 city/35 highway) is competitive, but real-world fuel economy in our experience is disappointing. On our standardized 115-mile mixed-driving evaluation route, the CR-V Hybrid struggled to clear 32 mpg, even with a light foot. We suspect the underpowered gasoline engine has to work too hard to keep up with traffic, and the boost from the electric motor simply isn't enough at speeds more than 45 mph.

In contrast, we had a much easier time getting close to the EPA estimates with the RAV4 Hybrid (an EPA 40 mpg combined). We even got better fuel economy on our test route with the regular non-hybrid CR-V.

Is it a good value?

7.5
The CR-V Hybrid doesn't command much of a premium over the non-hybrid version, and it comes standard with all-wheel drive. As is typical for Honda, the CR-V's build quality is unassailable, and the interior works and fits together in ways other manufacturers can't quite seem to match, especially at this price point.

The CR-V Hybrid's three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper and five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranties are standard for the class. The hybrid components are warrantied for a strong eight years/100,000 miles, just like the RAV4 Hybrid. It's nice to see Honda offering roadside assistance to match the duration of the bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Wildcard

7.5
If you value practicality and refinement with a touch of efficiency, the CR-V Hybrid will likely make for a good companion. The Hybrid goes about its daily duties with near exceptional smoothness and composure, so much so that it almost starts feeling like more of a luxury car than a small Honda SUV. It provides little thrill or driving enjoyment, but the CR-V's competence can take the edge off in its own way.

Which CR-V Hybrid does Edmunds recommend?

Just as with the standard Honda CR-V, the EX trim strikes the right balance of standard features and affordability. It's a step up from the base trim and has equipment that will simply make life easier, yet its price is well within the range of the everyday buyer.

4 out of 5 stars, Room for improvement
WeRv,
Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Overall I like the car although I was quite surprised that that the Touring Hybrid model side mirrors fold in manually and not automatically. The info system is hard to navigate through the menus especially if you are driving. It does ride very well and it’s comfortable.

4 out of 5 stars, 2020 Honda Hybrid CR-Veeeeee!
C,
EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Great ride! Electric motor adds solid performance and future savings. EXL Trim includes nice options. Obsidian Blue looks really deluxe.

4 out of 5 stars, A smooth feel in a solid surefooted package.
Mike in Long Beach,
EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

The lower packages do not come with fun colors but are still well equipped. Like about 80% of the cars in LA that are near new you can get white with a black interior. Why? It is the main thing I miss about my Forest Green Mazda MPV with a camel colored interior. The drive train is astonishingly smooth and acceleration from 15 to 45 is awesome, but oh, once you start to rely more on the Atkinson cycle engine it becomes more noise than push. Beware of that drop off! I almost got crushed by a gas tanker semi! That zip I thought I had went poof. I usually drive judiciously so I would not withold my recommendation. For an easy rider it is awesome!

3 out of 5 stars, EPA estimate fail
Willp,
EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Rides well and passenger space is excellent. Get up to speed smoothly. Don’t stomp the pedal. Now to the lower rating. After 600 mile in an area where my 2016 CR-V fed averaged 29.8, the hybrid is getting 33.3. 4 to 5 MPG LOWER then EPA numbers. It will take about 5 years to recoup the added cost. If you just want a new vehicle, this is a nice vehicle. If you also want the high fuel savings, look other hybrid SUVs.

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Honda CR-V Hybrid 2020: First Impressions From Behind the Wheel

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Honda CR-V Hybrid 2020: First Impressions From Behind the Wheel

[MUSIC PLAYING] ELANA SCHERR: Electric vehicles are big news. But if you aren't ready for a plug-in commitment, you can split the difference between gas-guzzler and amp-eater-- I guess that would really be a watt hog-- by going hybrid. That's just what Honda has done for 2020 with this version-- a hybrid-- of its popular crossover, the CR-V. Now, the CR-V has long been an Edmunds number one pick for small crossover. We just really like it. And that's even with competition from the Mazda CX-5 and the Toyota RAV4. Can the new Hybrid CR-V compete with its gas-only sibling? Can it compete with Toyota's Hybrid RAV4? There's only one way to find out. If you like this video and you want to see more like it, subscribe. It makes us feel good. [MUSIC PLAYING] When hybrid cars were first introduced, they used to have this kind of wacky, sci-fi design, like they were really distinctive. And nowadays, they're a lot more subtle. But you can still identify the Hybrid CR-V by a special color badge, says Hybrid on the side, and it's got five LED fog lights. It also has a unique rear bumper that tucks away the exhaust to make it seem like it has no exhaust at all. It's kind of the opposite of the traditional performance car, which might have fake exhaust tips to make it seem like it has more exhaust than it really does. Here, they're like, no, no. We admit nothing. [MUSIC PLAYING] You can get the hybrid powertrain for any of the four trim levels that CR-V comes in. So base-level LX is about 27,000. And the top-level Touring, which is what we're in right now, sets you back about 37, once all is said and done. Honda Sensing, which is their safety suite of technology to keep you from running into things, or backing into things, or running off the road into things on the side-- it's standard on everything. Base level, Touring trim-- you all get it. So I think that's a good idea. I think more car companies should consider safety to be a necessity and not an option. What we, at Edmunds, have always liked about the CR-V is that, compared to some of the other small SUVs, it just feels a little more refined than the RAV4, which is kind of rowdy, a little loud, and maybe not quite the handling machine of the Mazda CX-5, but responsive enough. The CR-V is never going to vie for a handling machine of the year, but the steering feels tight. It's not sloppy. And the brakes are not too grabby. So, so far, I'm having a nice driving experience. We're in EV mode right now. We're just humming along. And it's quiet. It's literally humming. It makes a sort of angel sound to make sure that we don't hit pedestrians. But no engine noise whatsoever. And that is because we're in a hybrid. So it has a gas engine-- a 2-liter four-cylinder-- but it also has two electric motors. And they were redesigned so that you can stay in EV mode longer than you could on any other Honda hybrid. The hybrid fuel economy is a little less than Toyota, which gets 40. But it is very close. If we get on the gas a little bit, then the gas motor kicks on, and it acts as a generator to recharge those batteries. It's nice. They all work as a team. They're friends. I like that. I think that's the way we should all work. And if it ends up getting you about 212 horsepower, well, I'm not sad about that, either. In normal driving conditions, the CR-V basically acts as a front-wheel drive vehicle, because that's how you get the best fuel economy. But if it senses a loss of traction-- say, in sand or rain-- it'll move power to the rear wheels, and then it's an all-wheel drive vehicle. Smart. [MUSIC PLAYING] One of the things that I have always liked about the CR-V-- and, actually, about Honda vehicles in general-- is that the seating position, the driving position-- it's all great for short people, of which one I am. I can use the dead pedal on the left side. It's not too far forward. I can see past the A pillar. I can use the armrest. It's not too far back when I move the seat forward. I just really appreciate it, and it makes my driving experience so much more comfortable. The materials in the CR-V are, I would say, nicer than you would expect if you've never been in one. There's the plastic that's going to happen when you're in a car that doesn't cost $50,000. Sometimes it happens in a car that costs $50,000. So I'm not going to complain about that. And I do think some of the details, like the wood trim, are really nice. And Honda always does a good job with storage and just general layout but it does have a shifter. Also has-- mode buttons are really easy to find over here. Sport-- did I notice a difference? A little bit-- a little bit more throttle response when you get on it. But it's not a big deal. Really, these buttons are-- you don't need them. Those are my only interior complaints, because I think the cup holders are in the right place. I like this charging pad right here. They put the USB ports here so the place where you put your phone is near the place where you put your cables. The best thing is this console, because a purse fits in it. And this is a medium-sized purse. And you could fit a slightly bigger one in. And I could still get to it while it's in here, which is fantastic, because those of you-- at least half the population, who carries purses-- knows how difficult it is to kind of get stuff out of your purse when it's on the far seat, or, even worse, in the backseat. If you're not a purse person, you can, I don't know, put your wallet there or something. What do you even do? How could you not be a purse person? Where do you put your stuff? Anyway, point is, clever console. Infotainment screen is sort of in the middle, design-wise. It's not that sad, stuck-on tablet look, but it also isn't super integrated into the design of the dash. It's sort of a matte finish, which means that it doesn't get quite as fingerprinty as the glossy ones, but it also isn't quite as clear, picture-wise, especially when you have the camera views on. You do have an actual volume knob, which is just the best. Volume knobs are so much better than touchscreen volume controls. Everyone knows it. Honda's infotainment system is not my favorite. I feel like it's a little behind the times in how it syncs to a phone. Yeah, it has Apple CarPlay and that sort of stuff, but it seems like it makes you jump through a lot of hoops to get CarPlay set up. And sometimes it wants you to do it multiple times when you get in and out of the car. And I can't figure out how to make it stop auto-playing my music. My music is great, but I want to make the decision about playing it. There might be a way of doing it. I just haven't found it yet. I really like the seats in the CR-V. I was talking to a good friend of mine, who is the same height as me, and she does not like the seats in the CR-V. So I really don't know what to tell you there. For me, they're comfortable. They are a little small. If you are a larger person, you might feel a little bit cramped in here. But if you are exactly like me, then you will think these are good seats. You might be wondering why, in a car that has no transmission, there are paddle shifters-- or, at least what look like paddle shifters. That's not what they are. I think they probably were. That's why they're here. But what they do in the CR-V Hybrid is control your regenerative braking. So if you're going downhill, and you want the car to slow itself down more without you stepping on the brakes, you can kind of up that with the paddle. And if you want to be able to coast without touching brakes or gas, then you can change that setting as well. So that's what these guys do. Not shifters. Sometimes with the hybrid versions of gas vehicles, you lose floor space and cargo space, because the batteries take up so much room, and the floor is sort of lifted up. But that isn't the case in the CR-V. There's a nice, low floor here. And look. Ah! The seats still fold flat. [LAUGHS] Hybrid crossovers make sense. You get to have that big vehicle with room for all your people and all your stuff, but you don't have the guilt over how much money you're spending on gas and all the damage you're doing to the environment. It's best of both worlds. I think we're going to see a lot more hybrid crossovers, hybrid SUVs, and maybe hybrid trucks coming in the future. In the meantime, the Honda CR-V Hybrid is an excellent addition to the marketplace. I personally liked it better than I like the non-hybrid CR-V, and I think it gives Toyota's RAV4 Hybrid a run for its money. If you're shopping for a conveniently-sized SUV with a hybrid drivetrain, definitely put the CR-V on your list. [MUSIC PLAYING]

Honda CR-V Hybrid vs. the competition

Honda CR-V Hybrid vs. Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

The RAV4 Hybrid is a direct rival to the CR-V Hybrid. It seems as though Toyota's broader experience in building hybrids has paid off here — the RAV4 Hybrid is both quicker and more efficient than the CR-V Hybrid. You get more cargo space in the Toyota too. For overall comfort, however, the CR-V is the better pick.

Compare Honda CR-V Hybrid & Toyota RAV4 Hybrid features

Honda CR-V Hybrid vs. Kia Niro Hybrid

If you're thinking more hybrid and less SUV, think Kia Niro Hybrid. It's smaller than the CR-V Hybrid and offers less interior space. There's no all-wheel-drive option either. But what the Niro lacks in capability it gains in efficiency. Fuel economy figures are impressive indeed, and at a much lower price than the Honda.

Compare Honda CR-V Hybrid & Kia Niro Hybrid features

Honda CR-V Hybrid vs. Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Need a little more space? Since there is no three-row Honda hybrid, check out the Highlander Hybrid. It has new styling for 2020 and a four-cylinder engine that dramatically increases fuel economy estimates compared to the previous version. Pricing is reasonable considering its roomy cabin. Acceleration is sluggish, but then so is the CR-V Hybrid. The Highlander Hybrid hits its marks.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
