2020 Honda CR-V MPG and Engine Specs  2020 Honda CR-V

One of the reasons why the 2020 Honda CR-V is able to get some high MPG numbers is because it’s equipped with a performance-optimizing powertrain. This includes a high-powered 1.5L turbocharged I-4 engine that produces the following output:

  • Horsepower: 190 horsepower
  • Torque: 179 lb-ft

To help it manage all that power, it pairs with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

The CVT is well-known for promoting efficiency by truly optimizing your shift schedule. It works because it does away with the set shift points of a traditional automatic transmission. Instead, it allows for nearly infinite shifts between the upper and lower limits.

The engine also has something called Idle Stop. This feature prevents unnecessary fuel use while idling by powering down the engine during extended waits at stop signs and red lights. When you move your foot off the brake, the engine springs back to life again.

Honda CR-V Drivetrain and Fuel Efficiency 2020 Honda CRV Mpg

Drivetrain is another factor to consider when looking at the fuel efficiency of your Honda CR-V. With the 2020 CR-V, you’ll have your pick between front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD). Here’s how they affect your EPA-estimated MPG ratings:

  • FWD Fuel Economy: 28 city/34 highway MPG rating for 2WD trims1
  • AWD Fuel Economy: 27 city/32 highway MPG rating for AWD trims1

These numbers are true for all trim levels on fully gas-powered models as estimated by the EPA.

While FWD gets the highest fuel efficiency, many drivers in our area like to equip their SUV with AWD. The one that you get with the CR-V includes an Intelligent Control System™ that automatically adjusts your torque distribution based on your conditions. This helps to improve traction control while still keeping your fuel economy high.

Honda CR-V Hybrid 2020 honda cr-v hybrid mpg

If you really want to boost your fuel efficiency, then you may want to consider the hybrid powertrain, which is available for all trim levels of the Honda CR-V.

It pairs an I-4 engine with an electric motor to produce a combined 212 horsepower. This adds excitement to your drive, in addition to impressive MPG ratings. Speaking of which, the EPA gives the 2020 Honda CR-V hybrid powertrain the following fuel efficiency ratings:

  • 40 city/35 highway MPG rating for hybrid trims1

This powertrain is paired with an electronic CVT and includes efficiency features like the 3-Mode Drive System. The 3-Mode Drive System lets you choose among the following modes: Sport, for maximum agility; ECON, for improved fuel efficiency; and EV for a limited-range, fully-electric drive.

AWD comes standard on the hybrid.
