The Honda CR-V diesel is the next model in the Honda line-up to receive the new Earth Dreams, which has unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It is available in two-wheel drive with manual transmission and will feature 300Nm of torque and 120 PS with CO2 emissions of only 119g/km* to provide an exceptional balance of performance and economy.
The new CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC’s styling maintains the confident stance adopted at the introduction of the new CR-V in 2012 and retains the impressive practicality with a spacious 1,648 litres of luggage capacity. It will also include Honda’s easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seats which can be folded flat in one movement. At the pull of a handle, the CR-V can be transformed from a five-seater passenger car into a versatile load-lugger.
Features on the new derivative include Honda’s ECON mode which helps to minimize 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 Honda CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC.
Over five million CR-Vs have been sold across the world since its introduction in 1995. The CR-V is one of the world’s top-selling SUVs, sold in more than 160 countries throughout Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa. Further technical and specification details and prices for the CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC will be announced closer to the on sale date.
