2020 CR-V PADDLE SHIFTERS?

13373 14
I am planning to purchase a new 2020 HONDA CR-V vehicle Dec 2019 - Feb 2020. I was wondering if 2020 CR-V touring would have paddle shifters?

Thanks to all of your replies. (sorry for the delay). Now that the 2020 CR-V specs are out (and the vehicle itself is available), I now know that there are no paddle shifters available. I still plan to proceed in buying a 2020 CR-V Touring AWD. Any suggested options I should include?

Regarding the European CR-V, I believe they have paddle shifters (and maybe even manual transmission) for some years.

Regarding the 2020 CR-V Hybrid, according to the early specs, it appears that it will have paddle shifters (I believe mainly to assist in charging the batteries). I am not interested in a Hybrid. It's a shame they couldn't include paddle shifters with the normal gas model (Honda offers it in HR-V, Pilot and Passport). I would guess since RAV4 does not yet have paddle shifters, Honda didn't find it necessary to include.

I have driven and owned manual transmissions all my life except for my current vehicle (2010 TSX) with automatic (and paddle shifters). I use the paddle shifters mainly for occasional down shifting for compression braking when slowing down. It keeps me more engaged in the driving, and helps with my brakes.
