Paris Motor Show: Honda’s new-look CR-V

Honda_CRV1v3Honda (UK) will this week use the Paris Motor Show to reveal its new-look CR-V. 

The exterior receives a whole new look with new headlamps, front grille, fog lights, skid-plate and bumper; whilst at the rear, new LED combination lamps, a refreshed tailgate design and bumper complete the enhancements.

The new-look model of the CR-V, the world’s best selling SUV in the first quarter of 2014*, is to be offered with a more powerful diesel engine as well as an optional efficient nine-speed automatic transmission.

The four-wheel drive CR-V will be equipped with the higher-powered 1.6-litre i-DTEC four-cylinder diesel engine from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series. This next-generation powertrain delivers outstanding performance and low CO2 emissions, with one of the best power-to-efficiency ratios on the market. This new engine replaces the previous 2.2 litre i-DTEC diesel in the CR-V.

When matched with the six-speed manual transmission the new higher-powered diesel engine produces 158bhp and 258ft lbs while emitting a class-leading sub 130 g/km of CO2  – an 11% improvement compared to the previous unit. To help CR-V owners fully exploit the latest engine’s efficiency, the new model is also available with a new nine-speed automatic transmission, with CO2 emissions of less than 135 g/km – 20% better than its predecessor.

The two-wheel drive diesel CR-V, available with a manual transmission, will continue to be equipped with the 118bhp 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engine, now with emissions as low as 117 g/km.

The new-look CR-V has been developed and engineered for European drivers. The car will be built at Honda’s state-of-the-art plant in Swindon, UK. To see the new-look   CR-V please visit the Honda Stand in Hall 3, at the Paris Motor Show 2014. Honda’s press conference takes place on the stand at 16.45 CET on Thursday 2 October.
