It has several features that appeal to young families, active buyers and couples who want space.

This is what notably sets it apart from competitors in its segment such as the Mazda CX-5. For 2020, the Honda CR-V receives several improvements including aesthetic revisions and modifications to its list of versions. Its space, efficiency and performance remain, however. This is where the 2020 Honda CR-V stands out from the 2020 Mazda CX-5. Let’s take a closer look.
More space in the 2020 Honda CR-V

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 has several qualities, but space is unfortunately not on the list. It is among the smallest compact SUVs in its segment with only 875 liters of space with all seats in place and 1,687 liters with the rear seat down.
