MERIDIAN, Miss., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The entire Meridian Honda staff is eagerly waiting for the automaker’s next model year of vehicles to arrive at the showroom. However, there is still some business to attend to with the class of 2020 models. Before everyone moves on, the dealership’s staff wanted to help educate current and future Meridian Honda customers about how the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid and 2020 Honda HR-V still stand up to corresponding vehicles from competing manufacturers. Both Honda crossover SUVs demonstrate pretty clear advantages over these specific rivals including in the areas of performance specs and available cargo volume. People looking to buy or lease a new Honda crossover SUV would do well to learn more about both models and their competitors before making a final decision.
When Honda introduced the hybrid version of the CR-V crossover SUV, it opened up a new market of potential owners. The 2020 CR-V Hybrid is available in four trim grades, Hybrid LX, Hybrid EX, Hybrid EX-L and Hybrid Touring. All of them use the same naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that will make 212 horsepower and offers all-wheel-drive as standard equipment. A common rival for the CR-V Hybrid will produce just 139 horsepower and is not available with all-wheel-drive.
Additionally, the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid is able to offer up to 68.7 cubic-feet of cargo volume, compared to only 54.5 cubic-feet found with the previously mentioned competitor.
Currently, the 2020 Honda HR-V is the smallest crossover the automaker has available. However, it still ranks among the most capable models in its emerging segment of the automotive industry. It is available in five trim grades, LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring. Owners of the 2020 HR-V will have a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that will make 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque.
A vehicle that shares the segment with the 2020 Honda HR-V, that is likely to come up during the research process, will make a maximum of 121 horsepower and offers nearly half the amount of maximum cargo volume. The 2020 HR-V can make up to 58.8 cubic-feet of cargo volume available compared to 31.9 cubic-feet in the rival.
