The revised Honda CR-V is to be debuted at this week’s Paris motor show.
The major changes are to the exterior and at the front there is a new bumper design with revised grille and fog lights. Whilst at the rear, there is a new tailgate design, revised bumper and LED combination lights.
The 150PS 2.2-litre diesel i-DTEC engine is to be replaced with a more powerful 1.6-litre i-DTEC unit producing 160PS / 350Nm which emits 130 g/km of CO2 (manual) or 135 g/km (automatic). This engine is available with four-wheel-drive and the choice of a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission.
The 120PS 1.6-litre i-DTEC two-wheel drive CR-V will remain with a six-manual gearbox, with CO2 emissions of 117 g/km.
The Honda CR-V for the UK market continues to be built at Honda’s Swindon plant in Wiltshire.Published 1 October 2014
