Serving Charlottesville, VA

When SUV shoppers stop by Umansky Honda, they frequently ask about our top models' latest improvements. Now that you have your eyes focused on the CR-V, you should take a moment to check out the differences between the 2020 and 2021 versions. For both model years, the Honda CR-V is available in four gas-powered trim levels and three hybrid trim levels.


Across all trim levels, the capabilities of the 2020 Honda CR-V and the 2021 CR-V are identical. All gas-powered CR-Vs are loaded with an I-4 turbocharged engine that is connected to a continuously variable transmission. This pairing puts out 190 horsepower. The hybrid powertrain combines an I-4 gas engine with an electric motor to deliver 143 net horsepower. The continuously variable transmission tied to the hybrid powertrain adds a sport mode and decelerators.


Across the interior and exterior styles, the 2020 Honda CR-V and the 2021 CR-V are unchanged at all trim levels. This two-row crossover is designed with modern aesthetics and sporty accents. The hood and side panels are predominantly smooth with a subtle touch of definition over the fenders. Black body molding, LED headlights, foglamps, a rear spoiler, and other features are either standard or included in the CR-V for both model years.


The many desired features that are standard or optional in the 2020 CR-V maintain their status in the 2021 version. Equipment like Honda Sensing® technologies, Apple CarPlay, heated seats, a navigation system, Android Auto, a multi-zone climate control system, power windows, cruise control, and other gear are standard at various trim levels.

Because the 2020 and 2021 Honda CR-V are identical through a trim-by-trim comparison, your next step is to get more familiar with each trim. Our Umansky Honda team is ready to answer your questions and demonstrate features, so stop by the dealership at your convenience.
