All-new Honda CR-V to make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show
Look out for an athletic design, the option to equip the car with hybrid technology and, for the first time ever, the possibility to seat seven in petrol models.
What’s obvious from the get-go are the exterior design changes. Broader, more muscular wheel arches, sharper contours and the latest Honda family ‘face’ make this SUV a stunner. As for the interior, it’s more refined and spacious than ever, with the option of seven seats. Take a look:
In keeping with Honda’s Electric Vision (more here), the CR-V is the first Honda SUV in Europe to have hybrid tech available as an option. The Intelligent Multi Mode Drive (i-MMD) hybrid system, comprising a 2.0 litre i-VTEC Atkinson cycle petrol engine and two electric motors, delivers real-world efficiency and effortless driveability. For petrolheads, a 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine is also available.
The powertrains are front-wheel drive as standard, but both the petrol and hybrid versions can be equipped with Honda’s latest all-wheel drive technology – the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System – which gives the CR-V legit all-terrain capability.
Interested? First deliveries of the Honda CR-V fitted with the 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine are slated for Autumn 2018, with hybrid models to follow in early 2019.
