DSC_6627

Seats for four to experience the twin-turbocharged 4.4-L V8 with 600-HP that’s boosted to 617-HP on the M8 Competition. An 8-speed automatic drives the xDrive all-wheel drive system that is standard equipped. Zero to 60 is in a very quick 3.2 seconds, and one-tenth less in the Competition. Top speed is 155 mph with an option to boost it to 189 mph.

Pricey. Powerful. Classy. Opulent.

The 2020 CR-V Hybrid is a new addition to the Honda lineup and the first electrified SUV from the Honda brand in America. It’s also a candidate for the 2021 North American Utility of the Year.
