Honda Reveals Details of New CR-V

Although it isn't going to be available in showrooms until early September, Honda UK has today released details of their next generation CR-V.

Prices will start from £25,995 for a 2WD manual S grade and top out at £36,455 for an AWD EX with CVT.

The new CR-V will be graded like the outgoing model, rising from the entry level S grade to SE, SR and finishing at the top of the range EX. The 1.5 i-VTEC petrol engine will come with a choice of two and all-wheel drive and in both manual transmission and CVT.

Standard across all grades is parking sensors and a rear view camera as well as Honda SENSING; Honda’s suite of safety features which includes collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition. SR and EX will also feature blind spot warning and cross traffic monitoring, while the CVT version will feature low speed follow.

SR grade also adds smart entry and start, leather interior, active cornering lights and front windscreen de-icer; while EX further includes a heated steering wheel, head up display, hands free access power tailgate, heated rear seats and panoramic glass sunroof.

PCP pricing has also been confirmed for the new car with monthly payments of £279 a month on a three year, 10,000 mile contract on 6.2% APR for a SR AWD manual version.

“The fifth generation CR-V once again raises the bar with the amount of equipment it comes with as standard at base grade,” commented Phil Webb, Head of Car at Honda UK. “In an incredibly competitive marketplace, the new CR-V will stand out for sophisticated and sporty design alone and we have strong sales expectations for this car.”
