Crossover Showdown: 2020 Ford Edge Vs 2020 Honda CR-V

You couldn’t pick a better year to get behind the wheel of a new crossover. That’s because you’ve got two epic SUVs to choose from. The 2020 Ford Edge brings all you’ll ever need from your drives in a stylish package. A sculpted wide stance with aerodynamic cues will leave all the right impressions. And that’s before you show off its stellar capability and tech.

For its competition, the 2020 Honda CR-V hits the streets with a unique grille design and wheels up to 19 inches.

It’s no surprise that these SUVs bring the looks. But the real competition begins when you try out the drive.

If the 2020 Ford Edge already grasped your attention, check it out with a test drive at Coccia Ford in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Until then, here’s how it compares with the Honda CR-V.

Which Crossover Supplies Capability and Fun drives?

Cruise with the 2020 Ford Edge, and you’ll have your choice between two strong motors to power your drives.

Standard is the 2.0L EcoBoost® engine with 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft torque to dominate US-11 on your way to Nanticoke. And with EPA-estimate 29 highway mpg, you’ll enjoy a smooth ride with few stops at the pump.

Opt for the sporty Ford Edge ST, and a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 guides your drives with track-ready performance. 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft torque will power you from Mountain Top to Philadelphia in times you never knew possible. Plus, you can’t go wrong with the instant acceleration when your foot touches the gas pedal.

Opt for the Class II Trailer Tow Package (standard on the 2020 Ford Edge ST), and you’ll carry your loads with a 3,500-lb towing capacity. It’s perfect for taking the boat to Lake Scranton for the weekend or carrying around light-weight trailers.

By comparison, the 2020 Honda CR-V gets you where you need to go with a. 1.5L turbocharged motor. 190 hp and 179 lb-ft torque are enough to carry you from point A to point B without problems. It’s not a bad drive, but it also won’t pack the same punch and exhilaration you’ll get with either 2020 Ford Edge motor.

Get Comfortable and Connected in Your Crossover

Whether it’s a cross-country drive or a quick cruise to Dunmore, the 2020 Ford Edge packs the tech to make it a fun ride every mile of the way. Dual-Zone Climate Controls comes standard. They’re perfect for when you like it cool but your passenger likes it hot. Set that dial to 63° while your riding-mate opts for 80°--no bickering or nausea involved.

Ever wanted a personal assistant for your commutes to Dallas? SYNC®3 with Ford + Amazon Alexa is here for you with voice-guided navigation traffic information, and controls for your appliances back home. It’s all you need for managing your days and drives during your cruises around town.

Speaking of commutes, outsmart traffic with Ford SYNC3 AppLink® with Waze. You’ll receive real-time alerts of accidents, traffic jams, obstructions, and other road issues to help you avoid them and Drive from Wilkes-Barre to Clarks Summit in less than 40 minutes—even during rush hour. Think of it as your trick to never arriving late again.

For your center console touchscreen, SYNC3 brings cool apps, swipe capability, and Siri® integration for handling your voice commands and smartphone connectivity.

Enter the Honda CR-V, and you’ll have standard A/C and heating to deal with the seasonal climate. If you’re looking for dual-zone climate controls, you can opt for the EX trim and up for everyone’s comfort.

For infotainment, the 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen allows you to load up your music and podcasts. But don’t expect to control your smart devices back home with it.

Safety Comes Standard in Your 2020 Crossover

When you ride inside the 2020 Ford Edge, you have the extra eyes of Ford Co-Pilot360 guiding your drives as a standard feature.

BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert lets you know when it’s safe to merge to help you avoid sideswipes and unwanted dings. It’ll even notify you when cars approach from either side while backing out of tight parking spaces to help you return to your drives with ease.

Staying centered never felt as easy as it does with Lane-Keeping System active. Anytime you edge out of your lane, you’ll get an alert to help you re-center. Do it too many times, and a coffee cup icon lets you know it’s time to take a break. To help you avoid fender benders, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Braking hits the brakes for you when accidents with other cars or pedestrians seem imminent.

Along with all these standard features, the 2020 Ford Edge also offers more available driver assists than other vehicles in its class. Everything from Enhanced Parking Assists and Adaptive Cruise Control is available to make your drives effortless.

In 2020 Honda CR-V, the Honda Sensing® Suite comes standard. So, similar to the Ford Edge, you’ll get automatic braking, road departure mitigation, and lane keeping system.

It’s a good mix of safety features. So, you’ll need to decide the winner here based on whether or not you want standard Blind Spot Assists and more available driver assists than other crossovers out there.
