Something really exciting happened for the 2020 model year, as the Honda CR-V has joined the ranks of electrified vehicles on the lineup! This was made possible by introducing the first-ever 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid, which is now available right here in Bluffton SC. The hybrid version of the popular crossover delivers the same sporty sophistication you’ve come to expect from the Honda CR-V with the added benefit of a hybrid powertrain beneath its hood.
The 2020 model year marks the 25th year for the Honda CR-V nameplate, as it was first introduced back in 1995. After a quarter century on the market, it’s established itself as an excellent choice in the compact crossover segment but adding a hybrid variant only increases its value!
The Honda CR-V Hybrid offers plenty to get excited about thanks to its hybrid powertrain. Combining a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle engine and an electric motor, the first-ever CR-V Hybrid is capable of generating an impressive 212 horsepower. That’s plenty of power to not only get you, your vehicle and whatever or whoever else is inside up and going, it’s enough to deliver an enjoyable experience on the road to boot.
More impressive than the powertrain’s actual power, however, is its fuel economy. Achieving 40 miles per gallon through the city and 35 mpg on the highway, the Honda CR-V Hybrid manages to attain a combined rating of 38 mpg according to the EPA*. That’s incredibly efficient for a compact crossover of the CR-V Hybrid’s size.
Furthermore, the CR-V Hybrid features an e-CVT and all-wheel drive as standard features. A Hybrid Driver Information Interface enables you to see important information necessary when driving a hybrid vehicle like this, such as seeing which components are delivering power or recharging the battery at a given moment. You’ll also be able to switch between three different driving modes depending on what type of driving you’re planning to do: Sport, ECON and EV, the latter of which allows you to operate the vehicle completely electrically in certain circumstances.
If you think you might be interested in a 2020 Honda CR-V of your own, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us right here at Hilton Head Honda. We look forward to hearing from you!
