The fifth generation Honda CRV was released back in 2016. The release was a surprise since there was not much information released by Honda at that time. And now, it seems Honda is planning to release a new model, the 2020 Honda CRV, soon.
For the moment, the detail about the new CRV is still scarce. However, we manage to find some information about it regarding its exterior, interior and engine. We have some information about the release date and price as well. Interested? Just read on.
2020 Honda CRV Redesign and Changes
If you expect the design to be changed, you will be disappointed. In terms of design, the Honda CRV 2020 model is similar to the previous model. Since the design is unlikely to change, you can expect the 2020 model to look similar to the previous one.
That doesn’t mean there will be no change at all, though. There will. For instance, the 2020 model may get new headlights, taillights, and grille. Some speculated that the 2020 model is going to be redesigned so it gets closer (in terms of design) to the Accord lineup.
The new CRV is planned to be available in various colors, such as Crystal Black Pearl, Basque Red Pearl, Obsidian Blue Pearl, Molten Lava Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic and Gunmetal Metallic.
The interior of the 2020 Honda CRV seems to have no significant changes in design as well. The design is likely to stay the same. But, this is not a problem. After all the current CRV’s interior is considered as one of the best-looking cabins for SUV. If the upcoming continue this, we see no problem with that.
That said, the new CRV may come with a new infotainment system. A new infotainment system, combined with excellent interior design, will no doubt improve the upcoming SUV’s driving experience.
Engine Specs & Fuel Economy
Let’s talk about what is under the hood now. The base model for the upcoming CRV is likely to use the same engine as its predecessor. That is, the 2.4-liter, inline-four engine which can produce up to 184 horsepower with 180 lb-ft of torque. For its size, this is quite an impressive feat. A 1.5-liter, turbo-four engine is likely to be available as well. This engine can produce up to 190 horsepower with 179 lb-ft of torque.
There is a good chance that there will be 2020 Honda CRV hybrid available. This hybrid model will use a 2.0-liter, Atkinson-cycle engine paired with two electric motors. With this hybrid engine, the power output will reach up to 210 horsepower.
The biggest improvement for the new 2020 Honda CR-V is going to be its fuel consumption. According to the rumor, the upcoming CRV can save up to 10% fuel if equipped with the hybrid engine.
It seems the new CRV is going to be an interesting car. The exterior and interior may not change much but its engines are expected to change (hopefully, for the better). Since it is planned to be a 2020 car, we expect the new CRV to come with the latest technology as well.So far, no official statement about new Honda CRV 2020 release date is released yet.
