Honda launches next generation CR-V

2018 Honda CR-V

HONDA has lifted the covers off its brand new CR-V, the fifth generation of what it calls its ultimate family SUV, continuing to innovate and deliver more value to the brand’s customers.

Hitting the market at a starting price just over $30,000 for the base VTi model, the new CR-V sits on an all-new platform architecture, which brings with it significantly improved steering precision, ride comfort, body control and cabin quietness.

The 2018 Honda CR-V boasts bold and sophisticated new styling, a more spacious, versatile and premium-quality interior, its first-ever turbocharged petrol engine, and a host of new features and technologies for customers that improve connectivity, comfort and convenience.

Honda will provide every customer with a powerful and efficient 140kW VTEC Turbo engine with Earth Dreams Technology and CVT, smart keyless entry, active noise control, dual-zone climate, alloy wheels, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The new Honda CR-V appears lower and wider on the road, however, the more striking silhouette surrounds an even more spacious and sophisticated interior. And for the first time, Honda CR-V offers a 7-seat version which extends its appeal to growing families.

A long bonnet, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and new dual exhaust outlets also give the new Honda CR-V a more athletic presence.

The drivetrain underpins new levels of capability on and off-road, with sharper steering, more dynamic handling, stronger braking performance, plus the availability of the latest generation electronically-controlled AWD system.

The 2018 Honda CR-V range will be available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, with seating for five or seven passengers across a simplified line-up of five grades; VTi (2WD, 5 seat), VTi-S (2WD and AWD, 5 seat), VTi-L (2WD, 7 seat) and VTi-LX (AWD, 5 seat).

Additional new driver-assistive features include adaptive cruise control with low speed follow, lane departure warning, high-beam support, and driver attention monitor.
