Honda CR-V Interior

2020 Honda CR-V Interior

Inside the cabin of the CR-V, you’ll find some of the largest measurements in its class. There’s plenty of space for five passengers to pile into the car and get comfortable. Everyone on board can stretch out with 41.3 inches of legroom up front and 40.4 inches of legroom in the second row.

Cloth upholstery is standard, but you can add leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Some of the other amenities you’ll be able to enjoy include power-adjustable front seats, the dual-zone automatic climate control system, and a power moonroof. All interior materials feel high-quality, which gives the cabin an upscale feel.

There’s also a user-friendly infotainment system in the dashboard. It’s Bluetooth® compatible, so you can stream music and make hands-free calls. A navigation system is also available to provide you with turn-by-turn directions.

Cargo Space

The CR-V’s low cargo area floor gives it 39.2 cubic feet of storage space. To keep your cargo from sliding around, tie-down anchors come standard. There’s also an available cargo cover that’ll keep your cargo private. It’s a convenient way to keep presents a secret during the holidays and make sure surprise parties go off without a hitch.

Packing up is even easy when you’ve got your hands full. A hands-free access power tailgate is available. It lets you unlock the trunk and start loading while the keys are still in your pocket. If you need to load more, you can use the standard easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seats to nearly double your cargo room. With the back seats folded down, the Honda CR-V offers a maximum of 75.8 cubic feet of cargo room.

Roof rails are also available to help you tie longer cargo to the top of your SUV. It’s a convenient way to carry lumber and other longer items. Plus, if you’d prefer to keep the interior clean, you can use them for your Christmas tree, surfboards, or kayaks.

Towing Capacity & Features

Both drivetrains are capable of towing up to 1,500 pounds. Hitching a utility trailer or some recreational vehicles to your SUV is simple too. The standard multi-angle rearview camera makes it easy to line up with your cargo. It even features guidelines, so you can steer perfectly into position, then connect your trailer.

While you’re on the road, the blind spot information system (BSI) with the cross traffic monitor will help you see when it’s safe to change lanes, even while your trailer attached. You can feel safe taking it up steep roads and trails too. With standard hill start assist, you won’t have to worry about any rollback.
