The new two-wheel drive Honda CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC will go on sale in the autumn of 2013; it is powered by a diesel 120PS/300Nm 1.6 litre diesel unit which emits 119 g/km of CO2. Which means that you can own an SUV and only pay £30 a year in road tax.
The 1.6 litre diesel engine is already used in the Civic model and according to Honda is the lightest engine in its class. Like the Civic it features Honda's ECON mode which helps to minimise fuel consumption and the Eco Assist system which advises drivers on how their driving style is impacting on fuel economy. Idle Stop technology will also be standard on the new CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC, which as it suggests when the engine is at idle in a traffic queue or level crossing for example it switches off and then when you pull away it automatically restarts – to save fuel and lower emissions.
Having recently driven the new Honda CR-V we were pleasantly surprised how the car has developed and the two-wheel drive model makes a welcome addition for those of you that don’t need four-wheel drive traction.
