2020 Honda CR-V for sale in Edmonton, AB
Ever since Honda launched the CR-V way back in 1995 it's been a smash hit with customers all over the globe, and it's not hard to see why. The 2020 Honda CR-V can fulfill a variety of different roles, from family shopper to outbound adventurer and everything in between. It doesn’t matter whether you’re heading to West Edmonton Mall for the ultimate shopping experience, stopping off at Mill Woods for a game of golf or heading out to Elk Island Park for a day out with the family, the CR-V has got it covered.
Some automakers build too many trim levels and others can leave you unsatisfied with just one or two, but Honda seems to have hit a sweet spot here with the CR-V as it's currently available in six different versions that cover all the bases.
The entry model in the 2020 CR-V lineup is the LX-2WD, and from there the range goes to the LX, Sport, EX-L, Touring and the top-of-the-line Black Edition. At the entry-level, the CR-V is a smart, practical and affordable compact SUV that makes great sense for those looking for a great blend of value and quality, while the Black Edition piles on the features and the style for those who want it all.
A single engine is used to power all six versions of the latest CR-V, but it's an excellent unit that provides all the power and performance a model like this needs and delivers all that at the same time as keeping down those important fuel economy ratings.
The engine in question is a 1.5-litre turbo-four that develops 190 horsepower and 179 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to the front or all four wheels through one of the best continuously variable transmissions (CVT) on the market.
Here in Canada, if you want a front-drive-only version of the CR-V you'll have to go with the entry-level LX-2WD because the rest of the lineup comes standard with Honda's Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System.
Your CR-V, just the way you want it
Don’t think for a moment that the entry-level LX-2WD is a sparsely equipped model just because it's the first one in the range and it doesn’t have the extra capability of all-wheel-drive. You could park one outside the Art Gallery of Alberta and it looks like it should be inside, and when you're inside the Honda you can’t fail to be impressed with what you find. On the outside, the base model gets body-colored handles and mirrors and 17-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, you'll find a colour TFT Driver Information Interface, Driver Attention Monitor, dual-zone automatic climate control, multi-angle rearview camera, a full set of power features, and a 7-inch display infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Once you go above the base model it just gets better and better, but the LX-2WD is a real contender and far more than the fleet-focused models some of the CR-V's rivals have as their entry point.
