While many of us are doing a lot less commuting these days, most of us are looking for any way to save a bit of money. Honda vehicles have long been known for their great fuel efficiency, and they just keep getting better and better mileage. The 2020 Honda Civic and 2020 Honda CR-V have been named two of the top commuter cars for 2020 by DigitalTrends*. The 2020 Honda Civic takes the award for best overall, while the 2020 Honda CR-V was the named best commuter SUV.
The 2020 Honda Civic is affordable, reliable and still fun to drive. Plus, it’s comfy, has lots of impressive tech and safety features, and there are plenty of options – coupe, sedan, hatchback, the sporty Si and super sporty Type R. New Honda Civics have upgraded interiors and improved technology and infotainment connectivity including improved sound-deadening in the interior cabins to quiet your ride when commuting.
If you want a compact car that can fit in any parking space, then the Honda Civic is for you. The Honda Civic Hatchback will give you the best gas mileage at 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway**. Opt for the Honda Civic Sedan or Honda Civic Coupe and you’ll still get 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway***. The Honda Civic Si and Honda Civic Type R are slightly lower at 26 city/36 highway‡ and 22 city/28 highway†, respectively, but you get the added benefit of more speed and power. With so many options, you can choose the model that is best for your driving needs.
The Honda Civic Hatchback comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, great for those who truly want a fun drive. Plus, the hatchback offers the most cargo space at 22.6 cubic feet, or up to 46.2 cubic feet with the rear seat folded. Choose a Sport trim on any model to maximize your fun factor during your commute. The Honda Civic Si or Civic Type R offers the sportiest drive of the bunch.
The Honda Civic Coupe is for those who want the best looks. While the Honda Civic Sedan is arguably the most practical, with a little bit of everything – spacious, comfortable, quick, great fuel economy and edgy good looks. You really can’t go wrong with a Honda Civic!
The Honda CR-V is notable for it’s comfortable, car-like drivability with the added benefit of extra space – for people and cargo – and off-road capabilities. Unlike other SUVs and crossovers, there’s no truck-like handling or horrible gas mileage here. You’ll get up to 34 mpg^ in the new Honda CR-V, or choose the new Honda CR-V Hybrid for a maximum 40 mpg city driving^^. With rugged and sophisticated good looks, the redesigned Honda CR-V makes a great, fuel-efficient SUV for a full lifestyle.
For 2020, the Honda CR-V gets a 190-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, LED head- and tail-lights, dual chrome exhaust finishers, and 60/40 split back rear seatback for maximum storage. Great options include:
- Heated front seats
- Power moonroof
- Adjustable power front seats
- Multi-angle rearview camera
- Leather-trimmed interior
