Honda has recently pulled the wraps off the new generation of the CR-V made in the UK, which will go on sale locally in October.
The first images and details with the fourth generation of the Honda CR-V have been recently released by the Japanese based automaker but if you’re looking for technical details and price lists, you’re in for a surprise because the company said that these “details” will be announced closer to the model’s launch, which has been set for September. The new Honda CR-V will be offered with a choice of two- and four-wheel drive systems on the 2.0 i-VTEC model and this, along with the 2.2 i-DTEC diesel, have been significantly improved, reducing CO2 emissions.
The 2.2 i-DTEC diesel unit, which is producing 148 BHP and 258 lb-ft of torque, is now emitting 149 g/km of CO2 when mated to a six-speed manual transmission (stop/start system included), while the 2.0 liter i-VTEC petrol engine, with its 148 BHP and 142 lb-ft of torque, is emitting 168 g/km of CO2 in front-wheel drive. A new 1.6 diesel unit will make its way onto the market next year. Honda says that the fourth generation of the CR-V will continue to be made at the company’s production facility in Swindon and it will hit the showrooms in October, this year. More details on the new Honda CR-VE generation will be announced close to the model’s launch.
