Get Ready — It’s the 2020 Honda Lineup

From facelifts to redesigns, here are the top four 2020 Honda models we can’t wait to test drive.

Honda Fit

The Honda Fit is a great city car, it’s perfect for getting around crowded streets and navigating tight parking spots. The 5-door subcompact hatchback will receive a major overhaul for 2020 but promises to offer plenty of cargo space, an abundance of tech gear, and excellent fuel economy. Yet to be known is whether or not the 2020 Honda Fit will get a boost of power and swap out its compact 1.5L inline-four cylinder engine for a 1.0L turbocharged 3-cylinder engine. The turbocharged 3-cylinder is currently used in overseas models and doing so over here would further improve the Fit’s already great fuel economy and add a little pep in its step, so why not?

Honda Passport

Nestled between the larger Pilot SUV and the more compact CR-V SUV, is the all-new Honda Passport—a neatly sized crossover SUV with seating for up to five. Although it’s shorter in length, the Honda Passport was built on the Honda Pilot platform and is powered by the same engine—a 3.5L naturally aspirated V6. Capable of producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, the Passport’s engine offers more power and better towing rates than most of its competitors. Further setting it apart from the competition is the Passport’s 9-speed automatic transmission. 

Honda CR-V

One of America’s best-selling vehicles returns for 2020 with a mid-term facelift. Honda’s beloved compact crossover SUV offers passengers an upscale cabin, a versatile, spacious interior, and a quiet, comfortable ride. Featuring a litany of smart, safety technologies and great crash test scores, not to mention a host of infotainment features, the 2020 Honda CR-V will continue to satisfy drivers looking for a premium, safe ride at an affordable price. 

Honda Insight

The third-generation 2020 Honda Insight compact hybrid is a great city sedan for the eco-conscious driver. Paired to a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine working on the Atkinson cycle with a permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor and a 1.1-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the Insight boasts a fuel economy of up to 55 mpg in the city and 49 mpg on the highway*. Based on the Honda Civic sedan platform, the Insight hybrid delivers excellent driving dynamics and can go 0 to 60 mph in just under 9 seconds. Plus, it offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a wide array of active safety features, and a surprisingly spacious cabin.
