The 2018 Honda CR-V Honda will be shown in public for the first time next month at the Geneva Motor Show.
For the first time, there will be a hybrid SUV for Europe in the Honda range.
The new CR-V will be available with Honda’s intelligent multi-mode drive (i-MMD) hybrid system - a 2.0 litre i-VTEC Atkinson cycle petrol engine and two electric motors.
A 1.5-litre VTEC turbo petrol engine is also available. Power is delivered via a six-speed manual gearbox, or an optional CVT automatic transmission.
The petrol and hybrid powertrains are front-wheel drive as standard, but both can be specified with Honda’s latest all-wheel drive technology – ‘real time AWD with intelligent control system.
The dashboard features two 7-inch displays, while the layout of controls has been simplified.
The height of the tailgate when opened can be programmed to avoid contact with low ceilings.
First deliveries of Honda CR-V fitted with the 1.5-litre VTEC turbo petrol engine are expected in the autumn with hybrid models following early in 2019.
