First showing for new CR-V

HONDA has released pictures of its all-new CR-V model ahead of its world debut later this month at the Paris Motor Show.

Promising improved on and off-road ability, plus more modern styling and the addition of several new safety features, the CR-V goes on sale in the UK from January.

Two engines will be offered – a new 2.0-litre i-VTEC petrol producing 150bhp and the familiar 2.2-litre i-CTDi turbodiesel which has helped push the old model’s sales up by nearly 10% in the corporate market this year.

Key additions to the new SUV include the availability of adaptive cruise control, the Collision Mitigation Braking System and active headlights which turn with the wheels. A key difference over the old model is that the spare wheel now no longer sits on the tailgate – it’s now hidden under the load floor.

The new CR-V will continue to be built at Honda’s Swindon plant and prices are expected to undercut the new Land Rover Freelander which goes on sale in December, so expect it to cost from under £20,000.
