Honda CR-V Hybrid Release Date

Honda CR-V Hybrid Performance

The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid SUV currently does not have a specific release date. Although, you should get excited because Honda previously said that the vehicle will be arriving in early 2020, which is right around the corner now!

To help hold you over for a little while longer, we’ll cover some of our favorite features of the 2020 CR-V Hybrid SUV.

Hybrid Performance

When talking about a hybrid vehicle, performance is almost always one of the first things that’s discussed–and there’s a good reason for this, especially with the 2020 CR-V Hybrid. It’s slated that the hybrid SUV will come with a two-motor hybrid powertrain with a 2.0L engine, capable of producing an incredible engine output.1

Being an electric SUV that’s rumored to increase the fuel economy by nearly 50 percent, you can rest assured the CR-V provides drivers with even more environmentally friendly features in the form of the selectable drive modes.

Upon entering the 2020 Hybrid, you can choose between one of three drive modes: Econ, Sport, and EV. Each drive mode alters your driving pattern slightly. Here’s how:

  • Econ: Alters throttle response to help drivers maximize fuel efficiency
  • Sport: Enhances throttle response for a more aggressive feel and improved engine sounds
  • EV: Allows your SUV to operate under electric-only power when battery is sufficiently charged

These performance-boosting drive modes coupled with the drivetrain should serve up one, fuel-efficient drive.

2020 CR-V Safety Features

Honda CR-V Hybrid Safety

In addition to fuel-efficient performance features, the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid also provides drivers and passengers with extra confidence via the safety features. These features, which are said to come standard on the Honda CR-V Hybrid, are those offered with the Honda Sensing® safety suite.

Some of the safety features believed to come standard with this suite include the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow.

Using a collection of cameras and sensors, these safety features constantly monitor your driving—just like a second pair of eyes. If these cameras and sensors detect that you’re crossing over your marked lane without signaling, the Road Departure Mitigation System can step in and provide gentle steering so that you safely return to your lane. This system works with the intention of keeping you from completely exiting the roadway.

Another safety feature that’s said to be offered with the CR-V Hybrid is the Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS). Using a speaker mounted to the front of your SUV, your vehicle will produce an audible alert when traveling with electric-only power. This alert, which is believed to be nearly inaudible to you and your passengers, works with the intention of creating pedestrian awareness while you’re driving.
