2020 Honda CR-V Named Green SUV of the Year

2020 Honda CR-V

Efficiency and family-friendliness come together in the 2020 Honda CR-V. That’s why this crossover was recently awarded the title of 2020 Green SUV of the Year from Green Car Journal.

The 2020 CR-V is now on sale at dealerships across America, while the CR-V Hybrid is arriving at dealerships soon, making it the first-ever Honda Hybrid SUV in the American market. The CR-V will come standard with the Honda SensingÒ suite of safety technologies and a more powerful powertrain on the LX trim: a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.

This is the sixth time that Honda has earned this recognition from Green Car Journal. Last year, the 2019 Insight earned the Green Car of the Year award, joining the 2012 Civic Natural Gas, 2014 Accord, and 2018 Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, Clarity Electric, and Clarity Fuel Cell. The 2016 HR-V also earned the title of Green SUV of the Year.

The addition of the 2020 CR-V Hybrid model is part of the brand’s pursuit of its eco-friendly goal, which is to halve its global CO2 emissions by 2050. To do so, Honda aims to electrify two-thirds of its global automobile sales by 2030. In 2019, the brand’s American electrified vehicle sales were up 34% from last year with more than 50,000 hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and fuel-cell vehicles out on the road.

Just because you need an SUV doesn’t mean you can’t drive green. Learn more about the efficient 2020 Honda CR-V at Avery Greene Honda.

Honda Wins Overall Brand Honor in ALG Residual Value Awards

Honda Awards

When you purchase a new car, it’s likely you want a car that will retain its value over time. That’s where the ALG Residual Value Awards* come in. Every year, these awards honor those vehicles that will hold the highest percentage of their Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). This year, Honda received the top spot in these awards in the Mainstream Brand category, highlighting the brand’s dedication to providing consumers with the best value possible.

“Strong residual values are the foundation of successful automotive brands,” said Eric Lyman, Chief Industry Analyst at ALG. “The residual value is important for consumers to take into consideration before making their next vehicle purchase because we know that depreciation is the single biggest cost of vehicle ownership.”

In addition to earning the title as the Best Overall Mainstream Brand, five Honda vehicles were also recognized in their respective segments. The 2020 Passport received the award in the Midsize Utility 2-Row category, while the Pilot was recognized in the Midsize Utility 3-Row category.

Along with these two models, the Accord took the top spot in the Midsize Car for the third consecutive year, while the 2020 Odyssey retained its first-place spot in the Minivan category. Finally, the Subcompact Car segment was won by the 2020 Fit for the sixth year in a row.

Get Where You Need to Go with These Holiday Road Trip Travel Tips

Road Trip

Whether you’re heading over the river or through the woods to your parents’ house this year, it’s important that you stay safe on your way there. Keep these holiday road trip travel tips in mind as you head out to your holiday destination.

Plan ahead. Before you head out on the open road, make sure you map your route out in advance. Make sure you have any roadside assistance contact information in case you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, and make sure that you prepare yourself for any holiday traffic, since the holidays are a popular time of the year for road travel.

Get your car checked. You don’t want to get stranded on the side of the road with an overheated engine or other issue. Bring your car to the Avery Greene Honda service center for a routine check-up before your trip to ensure your car is in working order.

Remember common-sense rules. To keep yourself — and your family — safe throughout the trip, try to remember some important unwritten rules. Remind your children not to talk to strangers when you’re at rest stops and accompany them into the bathroom. Also, tuck any valuables away in your trunk or in a covered storage area to reduce the likelihood of a break-in.

Wherever you’re going, have a safe road trip and happy holidays!

 

2020 Honda CR-V Updates Focus on More Tech, Features

Brand-New CR-V Hybrid

For the 2020 model year, the CR-V is getting a new hybrid-electric model.

More information about the CR-V Hybrid will be released closer to its release date, which is set for early in 2020.

New Features

The Touring trim will now come with a heated steering wheel and wireless smartphone charging, while the CR-V gets a more flexible cabin overall.

Instead, it will come with a standard 1.5-liter turbocharged direct-injected four-cylinder engine that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, while also getting better fuel-efficiency numbers.

More Color Options

You now have the option to pick the color you want, thanks to three new exterior colors: Radiant Red Metallic, Sonic Gray Pearl, and Aegean Blue Pearl.
