2020 CR-V will get standard 1.5T, optional hybrid, and some new color choices

We were checking with a few of our contacts to see if they'd heard anything new about the upcoming 2020 CR-V mid-cycle refresh (MMC). We've known for awhile that a Hybrid trim is (finally) coming for 2020, but other than that, we haven't learned much else. Until today, that is.

As a result of our querying, it seems that that ALL 2020 CR-V trims are showing a standard 1.5T engine. This includes the LX 2WD and AWD trims, which previously used Honda's venerable K24.

It's possible that there will still be a K24-equipped LX trim that hasn't shown up in the database yet, but it seems quite unlikely.

Speaking of the Hybrid, we know it's coming, but if it's like all of the Honda hybrids that have come before it, it won't surprise us if it arrives on a slightly delayed basis compared to the standard CR-Vs. We also expect the CR-V Hybrid to get the push button gear selector, just like the Accord Hybrid and Insight (and the UK-version of the CR-V Hybrid which has already launched - see pics below).

And one more thing (thanks to a commenter below, for reminding): We are expecting Honda Sensing to be standard across the entire 2020 CR-V range.





Also, we have some color info for the 2020 model. The big news is that Sonic Gray is being added to the palette for 2020. But several other colors are being dropped as well. Gone: Sandstorm Metallic, Gunmetal Metallic, Dark Olive Metallic, Basque Red Pearl, and Molten Lava Pearl.

Here is a list of the colors available for the Touring trim:


Exterior/Interior
  • Crystal Black Pearl/Black
  • Crystal Black Pearl/Gray
  • Obsidian Blue Pearl/Gray
  • Aegean Blue Metallic/Black
  • Sonic Gray Pearl/Black
  • Modern Steel Metallic/Gray
  • Modern Steel Metallic/Black
  • Radiant Red Metallic/Gray
  • Lunar Silver Metallic/Black
  • Lunar Silver Metallic/Gray
  • Platinum White Pearl/Black
  • Platinum White Pearl/Ivory
