Honda CR-V Hybrid vs. Competitors for Sale in West Springfield, MA

Overview

A big portion of the Honda CR-V fan base had eagerly awaited the 2020 model year, when the hybrid version of this consistently popular crossover was finally released. In the eyes of the eco-conscious, an alternative-fuel powertrain was what they were waiting for in order to have their ideal vehicle. Some of the CR-V’s biggest rivals already had their hybrid versions in the game, which only intensified the competition. Let’s examine how some important attributes compare between the CR-V and three of its similarly priced gas-electric competitors, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, the Kia Niro, and the Ford Escape Hybrid.

Cost and Standard Equipment

While the starting MSRP of the Niro gas-electric hybrid is around $25,000, Kia does not offer all-wheel drive on it. The base pricing of the other three hybrid crossovers we’re comparing is in the vicinity of $29,000, with each models’ highest-priced trim starting at a few thousand more. While the Escape Hybrid has slightly lower base pricing than the two Japanese hybrid crossovers, it doesn’t come standard with all-wheel drive as they do: Ford charges an additional $1,500 to add this desirable feature.

The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid EX, just one level up from the base model, stands out for its generous list of features: remote start, heated front seats, a power sunroof, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both Ford and Toyota make their hybrid crossover buyers pay extra for a sunroof and remote start on their comparable trim levels; RAV4 buyers must also buy an optional package to get heated seats at the second trim level. Kia doesn’t include heated front seats until the most expensive of its five trims.


Power and Safety

Some get-up-and-go makes a difference in a midsized crossover. While the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid with its total system horsepower of 219 barely noses out the Honda CR-V Hybrid (212 total hp), the Honda puts out more total system power than the Escape Hybrid (200 hp) and considerably more than the Niro (139 hp).

The CR-V Hybrid is outfitted with ample active safety technology as well, with the Honda Sensing technology suite standard on all trims. It includes lane keeping assist, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow. All RAV4 Hybrid trims are comparably equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense driver-assist technology bundle, but it doesn’t include road departure mitigation technology. The Ford Escape Hybrid SE Sport doesn’t get that feature either, and adaptive cruise must be added at an additional cost. The base-level Kia Niro doesn’t get any standard active safety features.


Interior Space

The spacious 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid comes out on top with 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume; the RAV4 Hybrid only provides 98.9 cu. ft., the Escape Hybrid 104 cu. ft., and the Niro 100.9 cu. ft. The CR-V Hybrid and the RAV4 Hybrid are contenders for the most cargo room behind the front row, with less than 1 cubic foot of difference between them. The Escape Hybrid, on the other hand, supplies 3.3 cubic feet less than the Honda, and the Niro falls even farther behind, with 5.5 cubic feet less than the CR-V Hybrid The Honda’s back-seat passengers will find themselves with more comfort on long drives not just because of this additional roominess, but also because the second-row seats recline, whereas they don’t in the competing vehicles. Those back seats also fold completely flat to better accommodate oversized cargo when nobody’s seated in that row. Honda’s inclusion of an inflation kit instead of a spare tire also helps to max out the available space.
