The facelifted version of the Euro-spec Honda CR-V has been recently unveiled by the car manufacturer, ahead of its public debut, which will take place during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, tomorrow.
The 2015 Honda CR-V has received some styling tweaks on its exterior which have been carried over from its brother available over-seas. This includes the new front and rear bumpers, the different front grille, the different fog lights, the LED headlights, the chrome trim at the rear and several other tweaks to help it stand out from the current variant. The vehicle, which is produced in Swindon, UK, will go on sale after the French automotive event.
As far as the engine lineup goes, Honda says that instead of the 2.2 liter i-DTEC diesel, we can now find a 1.6 liter four-cylinder i-DTEC, which is capable of producing no less than 160 HP (118 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is connected to a 6-speed manual or an optional 9-speed automatic, sending power to the 4WD. The FWD version of the facelifted CR-V will continue to take its power from the 1.6 liter i-DTEC unit, connected to a 6-speed manual gearbox, rated at 120 HP (88 kW).
