The most significant changes to Vehicle Excise Duty, announced in the Government’s Budget today, will not affect the Honda CR-V - one of the cleanest and most fuel efficient 4x4s on the market.
While cars in Band G have seen an increase in road tax to £300 a year, diesel-engined CR-Vs remain in Band E, emitting just 173g/km of CO2, with an average fuel economy of 43.5mpg. The petrol-engined CR-V remains in Band F, with emissions of 194g/km - lower than many family saloons and even a MINI Cooper*.
Meanwhile, the annual VED charges for Honda’s Civic Hybrid have been reduced to just £15. Its remarkably low emissions figure of just 109g/km of CO2 means it remains near the foot of the table, in Band B.Published 21 March 2007
