Honda (UK) will reveal its new CR-V model at this weeks’ Paris Motor Show.
Exterior changes include new headlamps, front grille, fog lights, skid-plate and bumper; whilst the rear features LED combination lamps and new bumper.
The four-wheel drive CR-V will be equipped with the next-generation higher-powered 1.6-litre i-DTEC four-cylinder diesel engine, which replaces the previous 2.2-litre i-DTEC variant, from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series.
When matched with the six-speed manual transmission the new higher-powered diesel engine produces 158bhp and 350Nm of torque, while emitting 130g/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 135g/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 117g/km.
The car will be built at Honda’s plant in Swindon, UK.
