Honda CR-V gets makeover


The CR-V has always been a favourite of ours here at Autodealer so when there’s a new version or even a slightly tweaked iteration, we are all ears. Here’s what you need to know about the facelifted version of this SUV.

  • The CR-V gets a more powerful 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine generating 118kW/350Nm in the four-wheel-drive variant and 88kW in the front-wheel-drive version which replaces the old 2.2-litre i-DTEC diesel in the CR-V;
  • New nine-speed automatic transmission with reduced emissions and improved fuel economy;
  • The exterior receives a whole new look with new headlamps, front grille, fog lights, skid-plate and bumper, while at the rear, new LED combination lamps and a refreshed tailgate design and bumper are added;
  • CO2 emissions of less than 135g/km and 117g/km mean that the new powertrains are 20 percent better than the previous diesel model;
  • CR-Vs are to be built at Honda’s state-of-the-art plant in Swindon, UK;
  • The new-look CR-V will make its world début at at the Paris Motor Show this week.
