Tokyo: New Honda CR-V revealed image

After having some problems with its Thailand supplier parts, the Japanese based automaker Honda has officially revealed its newest generation of the CR-V, which entered production just a day before its Tokyo Motor Show debut.

According to the car manufacturer, the fourth generation of the Honda CR-V will be available to its future customers with a choice between two engines, the 2.0 liter and the 2.4 liter, where the first one will be used for the entry-level version and it will be mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0 liter engine is developing a total output of 150 PS and has a peak torque of 191 Nm, with the compression ration going up from 10.5:1 to 10.6:1. The 2.4 liter engine is generation 190 PS and 222 Nm of torque.

As a reminder, the fourth generation of the Honda CR-V has had some supplier problems in Thailand because of the floods, and it nearly missed production, but the newest SUV which entered the Japanese based automaker’s lineup has just started production on November 29, 2011, at the East Liberty Ohio facility. The new CR-V generation is expected to be launched on time on the United States auto market but the manufacturer didn’t say anything yet regarding the introduction of the SUV in Europe.
