No honest search for the best compact crossover SUV would be complete without looking at the 2020 Honda CR-V. Since 1997, the Honda CR-V has been the right compact crossover for thousands of North Americans.

The 2020 Honda CR-V expresses a redesign over the 2019 model year, but it remains part of the fifth generation of the model. The 2020 model year has a standard 1.5L engine and more standard driver safety features than ever before. Externally, the front end looks sharp, clean, and deliberate. Excluding hybrid powertrains, the Honda CR-V has four trim levels to choose from. The chart below outlines some of the most significant features of each trim.

Trim Level Comparison and Analysis

With the LX being the base trim, it might be plenty enough for a lot of drivers who are primarily in it for the form factor and safety features. Many may upgrade to the EX out of interest in the upgraded interior technology, especially since it has plug-in smartphone compatibility. While the EX-L trim does upgrade the luxury and technology features, many shoppers will likely go for the Touring to get the best of everything. The sound system in the Touring trim outdoes all the other trims. Touring drivers will likely make regular use of the wireless phone charger to the point where they forget what life was like without it. Extra frills like ambient lighting may go unnoticed, but the LED Headlights will make sure the Touring does not go unnoticed on the roads at night.
