2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Named an Autotrader ‘Best New Car for 2020’

Autotrader has named the all-new 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid as one of only 12 new vehicles to earn a "Best New Car for 2020" award. Launched nationally on March 1, 2020, the CR-V Hybrid is both the most fuel-efficient and most powerful model in the CR-V lineup. The Indiana-made CR-V Hybrid is expected to become Honda’s top-selling hybrid model, helping the brand to extend its two-year streak of record U.S. electrified vehicles sales, which topped 50,000 vehicles for the first time in 2019.

"CR-V hybrid does everything right, it gives all the good things we expect from a hybrid without any of the bad," said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. "A nicely done interior, excellent acceleration, great fuel-economy and an overall package that’s useful everyday make it very compelling. Because it doesn’t force any compromises and because it’s so practical for daily use, the Honda CR-V hybrid is the best hybrid you can get."

The 2020 CR-V Hybrid is the first hybrid SUV available from Honda in the U.S. With class-leading torque, passenger space and rear-seat legroom, top-class driving dynamics, and excellent EPA fuel economy ratings, the CR-V Hybrid keeps everything that has made CR-V a favorite among consumers and media alike, but with even more refinement. The CR-V Hybrid for the U.S. is built at Honda's Greensburg, Indiana, using domestic and globally-sourced parts. The two-motor hybrid power unit is built at Honda’s Russells Point, Ohio, plant, with the 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine produced at the company's Anna, Ohio, engine plant.
