Easy to drive, easy to love... If you like music

Got a good deal on Touring, have owned for almost two months. Taken it on several long car trips (one 400 one 700 mile) there and back. With the safety features it practically drives itself on the highway, is super comfortable and roomy. Sure- it’s not as peppy as the Ford Escape Hybrid (or the Rav4), but I can feel plenty of power off of a stop. I drive in Econ mode but if you’re concerned, throw it in Sport for a significant differnce and it’ll speed up very quick. Compared to those two other cars, the ride quality is noticeably smoother and its transitions are seem-less. If you want an easy driving car, this is for you. If you want something sportier, go for a CX-5 or possibly a 2020 escape if you want to spend less. If fuel economy is why you’re buying the car, it is certainly better than a non hybrid but doesn’t do as well as a Rav4, I’m averaging 33.5 around town, and 36 on long car trips on the highway. I drove it for a weekend in Chicago city traffic and all the sudden was getting 38. My area is pretty suburban and low on traffic, which I assume is why I'm seeing low city MPG. I didnt just opt for a hybrid for the milage though; I tend to like how they drive and in my experience they last longer with less issues. The biggest downside to this car; the Acoustic Vehicle Alert System. It sounds something like a spaceship or creepy church choir and is pretty loud in reverse. With the windows up, you can only hear it at stop lights if you know to listen for it, but with the windows down you’ll notice it. This hasn’t effected the score on my review for one reason; every single time I drive I play music, and with the stereo on you can’t notice it at all unless you realllllly try and know what to listen for. So as long as you like music, not a reason not to buy the car. The styling feels upscale and this car will do its job to get your family and your stuff comfortably to wherever you need to take them, weekday or weekend. I am a single adult but needed a crossover to carry friends and gear on weekend trips, which this car is perfect for. Get an EX-L if you want the best value.

Two Months in and No Regrets

After a long wait since learning that Honda had released a CR-V hybrid ex-US, I shopped around and purchased the CR-V Touring Hybrid in Sonic Grey in July. I was looking for a comfortable, quiet, fuel efficient vehicle for my daily commute in the San Diego area to replace my high mileage 2014 BMW 328d. After ~2000 miles I am nearly matching the 36-38 MPG that I got in the 328d in mixed driving. On my commute, however, which is mostly non-highway, I have easily achieved 40 mpg, so it is possible under real-world conditions to achieve the mileage listed. Since my previous vehicle was a BMW, I had the opportunity to drive several loaner BMWs over the span of the 130,000 miles that I drove the 328d, and in my opinion the CR-V Hybrid compares very well in several areas to a BMW X3. The spacious interior is really outstanding and very comparable to luxury brands - the seats, the leather-wrapped steering wheel, hands-free lift gate and door locks. Where it may lag behind is in acceleration, but my 328d 0-60 time was 7 sec, and the CR-V hybrid is not far behind at 8 sec. The CR-V does work harder on steep inclines, but that's to be expected. A noticeable feature of Honda hybrids is the Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS). It is mostly noticeable at low speeds or while in reverse. Perhaps the ground clearance amplifies the sound a bit relative to other hybrids, but it is easy to get used to. Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase and look forward to commuting with for years to come. Pluses: near-luxury comfort interior, cargo space, fuel economy, CarPlay integration Minuses: Acceleration past 40 MPH, voice recognition of GPS

Tried every 2020 small/mid SUV

My first inclination was to buy a new 2020 CRV EXL (gas), but test drove the EXL hybrid and the experience was wonderful. The leather looked great and was so comfortable. The engine(s) gave the hybrid some pep (I wasn't there to buy a Porshe), and I really enjoy playing with the battery charging paddles. Immediately after, I went to the Toyota dealer to drive the RAV4 XSE hybrid. The car had a great looking interior, maybe a bit more modern than the CRV. The outside of the car was nice, but it looked like something a teenager would enjoy. Driving the RAV4 was the deciding factor; it rode like my early 2000's Civic. I felt every bump, and it didn't feel sturdy like the CRV. I read every article that I could find, and the RAV4 kept receiving better reviews than the CRV hybrid. I drove the two cars-- I researched for days-- there is no way that I would choose the RAV4 XSE hybrid over the CRV EXL hybrid. Plus, if you live in an awesome state such as CT, the hybrid components are covered for 15 years or 150k miles! Btw....I did explore buying the EXL 1.5L turbo-- I could not get over the .5 second hesitatation when pushing the gas pedal. I know that I made the right decision

EPA estimate fail

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. Update: From purchase to about 800 miles I drove with Economy mode on, MPG 33.2-3. Turned of the Econ setting and drove about 90 miles, MPG 33.2. Cleared the trip computer, turned Econ on and drove 140 miles with abouT 15 in city/urban areas, MPG 37.3. I can only guess the engine computer needed to learn the difference. Will update if things go down measurably.

Excellent value

Options are very competitive for the price. Excellent acceleration and braking. Smooth ride. Very comfortable. Traded "down" from a Lexus with all the bells and whistles; this car doesn't have all of the features that I would like to have, but exceeds expectations for the features that I do have. My biggest "misses"-leather steering wheel and upgraded sound system. Owner's Manual is confusing or not thorough in parts. Choice was this car or Toyota Rav 4---for this trim level, the CR-V greatly exceeds the fit and finish, and the overall ride of the Toyota.
