I just wonder why Honda is not installing the latest version of their Display Audio system? Like the system in the 2019 Insight and Accords.

I bet Honda would've done the same if the Insight was named the Civic Hybrid. The fact it was named the Insight allowed them to redesign the car inside and out without having to worry about alienating the regular Civic.

The CRV Hybrid is only new in the US. Europe and Japan had it since last year. So chances were slim that Honda would do a major redesign. I'm not even sure how Honda is getting away with selling infotainment software from 2013(Android Jellybean) in 2020 when the CRV Hybrid launches but I guess your average consumer doesn't know better.

The 2020 CR-V was named "2020 Green SUV of the Year" - another win for the Honda brand - continuity from the Honda Insight's win last year for "2019 Green Car of the Year." (The Toyota Corolla was named "2020 Green Car of the Year.")

One of the winning reasons cited for both the 2020 CR-V and 2020 Corolla is that the first hybrid versions are being added for these models in the 2020 model year. EPA testing results for the 2020 CR-V hybrid aren't available yet, so the award leans-forward on Honda's statement that the hybrid version will deliver 50% more fuel efficiency for the model.
