2020 Honda HR-V vs 2020 CR-V near Washington, DC

2020 Honda HR-V vs 2020 CR-V near Washington, DC

Pictured above is the 2020 Honda HR-V Sport in Aegean Blue Metallic.

While the 2020 Honda HR-V and 2020 CR-V might at first glance seem quite similar from the outside, there are actually several differences between these two models that you should consider before committing yourself to one. After reading about these SUVs, swing by Pohanka Honda in Capitol Heights to take them around the block with one of our knowledgeable representatives.

Performance

There’s no better place to start this comparison than by taking a look under the hoods of these rides. While the HR-V’s standard 1.8L 4-cylinder engine pumps out 141 horsepower1 and 127 lb.-ft. of torque2, the CR-V’s standard 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder system can generate 190 horsepower3 and 179 lb.-ft. of torque4. Surprisingly, even though they deliver different amounts of muscle, they both get a 28/34/30 MPG city/hwy/combined5,6 fuel economy. Additionally, both models can be enhanced to include the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, which can switch back to FWD to improve your fuel ratings when road conditions don’t necessitate more traction. We can’t forget to mention that both vehicles are decked out with a standard Continuously Variable Transmission for smooth acceleration on Michigan Avenue.

Interior

Regardless of whether you go with the 2020 Honda HR-V or 2020 Honda CR-V, you can be sure that you’ll make it back home after work in the pinnacle of comfort. The HR-V starts things off in a strong way with an available 8-way power driver’s chair that can include heating functionality. On the other side of the fence, the CR-V provides an optional 12-way power driver’s seat with a two-position memory system. That means it will recall your favored settings with just the tap of a button after someone else has changed things around. Plus, on top of available heating in the front row seats, the CR-V also offers a dual-zone climate control system in higher trim levels. Although the HR-V can be loaded up with an automatic climate system, the front seat passenger won’t be able to adjust things to their own preferences.

Exterior

Of course, there’s no sense in getting behind the wheel of a ride that fails to make a lasting first impression. Luckily, you won’t have to worry about that, since the HR-V and CR-V will drop jaws wherever they travel. While the former has 7.3 inches of ground clearance, you’ll have a higher vantage point in the latter with its 8.2 inches for the same dimension. Moreover, both SUVs sit on top of standard 17-inch wheels. But, if you’re the type of person that really wants to steal the show, the CR-V is the only one out of the bunch that can be suited up with 19-inch wheels with gray inserts. Last but not least, both SUVs boast standard remote entry, so you’ll be able to get inside the cabin with little effort.

There’s still so much more to hear regarding this comparison of the 2020 Honda HR-V vs 2020 CR-V near Washington, DC, so visit Pohanka Honda in Capitol Heights during our accommodating business hours.

I had a great experience at Pohanka. I worked with Lamin Matthews who was persistent but patient. I took about 8 weeks to make a decision and he kept in touch with me during that time. Once I knew what I wanted, I got a very fair price quote and bought the car the next day. The sales folks at Pohanka were efficient and took my info over the phone so that a lot was done before I arrived. Lamin took the time to explain the electronics of the car to me even though it was past closing time. Everything went really smoothly and I would recommend Pohanka.

My Service Rep. Don Curtis from the minute I called to say I was experiencing car trouble and needed to bring my car in for service he was there with a calm, patient and assuring voice. stating they would assess the trouble and he would let me know the problem. He called to let me know they had identified the problem and the cost and called again to let me know when my car was ready. He was there when I arrived to pick up my vehicle to see if I was satisfied. NOW THAT'S 5-STAR SERVICE!

Great experience buying my car here. The salesperson was very knowledgeable about the different models and easily explained the features. Of course the negotiations are always my least favorite part in car buying. Sometimes the sales managers will try to take advantage, but that wasn’t the case. I did my research and stood firm on my price range and we met in the middle. They wanted to sell a car and I wanted to buy one. And the team at Pohanka Honda made that happen!

My service advisor Don was very professional and helpful. My son lost his car keys and we had the car towed to Pohanka Honda to have new keys made. I received an email immediately from Don informing me he would be my point of contact. The service was fast and efficient. Great experience

I received a coupon for various Maintence for my car in the mail. I called and spoke to a very friendly Jeremiah yesterday. He was wonderful from the initial phone call all the way through my visit. He was very knowledgeable and patient which was perfect for someone like who does not know much about my car except put it in drive and go lol. I will be making all of my upcoming Maintence decisions with Jeremiah from now on.

I recently had my car serviced at Pohanka Honda Capital Heights, MD and it was an excellent experience. I worked with Service Advisor, Brian Smith who was extremely knowledgeable, honest, and very attentive. I arrived around 9ish a.m., (with no appointment) and was outta there in a timely fashion. Brian was very professional and made every effort to ensure I was fully aware of what was going on with my vehicle. Now there were a few issues that came up to a steep total but Brian was very honest with letting me know what was essential to the lifespan of my Honda and what could wait. This little act of consciousness on his behalf was really appreciated because it showed me that Pohanka wasn't trying to drain me dry of all my coins! Thanks Brian and the rest of the Pohanka team!

I didn't realize that the opening time had changed from 6am. I waited until 7:45, otherwise, the day went along just fine. The oil change was quick and efficient. I have never had any problems with oil leaks after my numerous oil changes at Pohanka.Continue the good work and thanks for the great service

My overall experience was good.. my service person Marcus was very helpful and his trainee.. the only negative was a customer in the facility that did not have a mask on. He chose to keep walking around. I didn’t hear anyone address him. I was very uncomfortable..
