Hybrid Powertrain of the 2020 Honda CR-V
The CR-V Hybrid is set to deliver on both efficiency and capability. It’ll crank up the output with a two-motor hybrid powertrain that improves horsepower while keeping your MPG ratings as high as you’d expect from a Honda hybrid.
It also gives you three different drive modes, so you can choose the drive you want based on your mood:
Sport mode gives you that extra sporty flair with improved acceleration, overtaking, and steering. Econ mode reduces unnecessary power use to improve the fuel economy. The EV mode lets you drive solely on electricity for a limited time to really save on fuel and decrease emissions.
Plus, Real Time AWD™ (all-wheel drive) will come standard on all trims, so you can drive with capability and confidence no matter the weather.
Smart Safety Technology
Like many Honda vehicles, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid will come standard with Honda Sensing®. This suite of driver-assist technologies helps improve awareness through the following systems:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
- Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
CMBS™ is a useful tool that applies automatic emergency braking if it senses you may be at risk of a forward collision. This is especially useful during low-speed or city driving situations.
When you’re cruising down the highway, on the other hand, you may find a lot of help from the RDM system and LKAS. RDM can sense if you’ve crossed over lane lines without signaling and provide gentle steering assist to guide you back into your lane.
LKAS adjusts your steering at regular intervals to keep you centered in your lane at all times during long highway drives.
Interior Technology: CR-V Hybrid
When you climb inside the ergonomic cabin of the Honda CR-V Hybrid, you’ll find plenty of technology to help you stay connected and entertained while on the go. An available touchscreen display, for example, keeps you connected through Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®.
Available Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® will allow you to connect your smartphone with your vehicle by making your favorite apps accessible through your touchscreen display, including:
- Audio books
- Internet radio streaming
- Phone contacts
- Select social media notifications
All apps are optimized for use while on the go, so you can keep your hands on the wheel and off your phone as you travel. An available wireless phone charger also helps keep your device energized and ready for use.
All these features help make your road trips even better, so go ahead and load up your trunk with all your luggage! The available Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate makes it easy by opening the hatch with a simple wave of your foot under the rear bumper.
