2020 CR-V LX Gets a 1.5-liter Turbo Engine and Honda Sensing

There’s no question that the Honda CR-V is the most popular crossover in the country. This year’s refresh on the popular SUV came with quite a few changes. Aesthetically, all 2020 CR-Vs have new front and rear bumpers as well as revised headlights and taillights, giving this new model a distinctly new look compared to recent years. Honda also added three new colors from which consumers may choose: Radiant Red Metallic, Sonic Gray Pearl, and Aegean Blue Pearl.  The EX and EX-L trims will boast a new alloy wheel design, while the top Touring trim gets an extra boost with its new 19-inch alloy wheels. As for the interior, the center console is more tech-friendly than previous models, relocating a pair of USB ports up to the front of the device tray.

If you’ve had your eye on the 2020 CR-V LX, you’re in for some exciting news. For 2020, there is a new powertrain for the LX trim, which also includes a 4-cylinder, 1.5-liter turbo engine. This replaces last year’s 2.4-liter engine and brings with it six more horsepower and a broader torque curve. That means 190 horsepower, 179 feet of torque, and an EPA-rated gas mileage of up to 30 mpg to haul your presents this holiday season. Honda Sensing safety suite is also standard in the CR-V reboot. For those of you considered with safety, this is fantastic news. Honda Sensing suite includes Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping Assist, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
