The all new Honda CR-V has made debut in the USA. The car gets evolutionary exterior changes and increased interior space, courtesy of a longer wheelbase. The car will reach the UK, and other Asian markets like India this year.
Here are more details:
2018 Honda CRV Exterior and interior
As we said, Honda has refrained from making any drastic changes in this generation. It is already a good selling car and they want to retain what the people love. However, changes like sleeker headlamps, lower placed fog lamps and the narrower A-pillar are easily noticeable. Its rear is slightly different as well, taking inspirations from the new Civic.
The new CR-V’s cabin has also improved. It gets better quality materials and enhanced features while increasing the overall space. In fact, the car boasts of class-leading rear legroom.
In front of the driver, the new MID display looks great and so does the large, centrally placed 7-inch touchscreen. Android Auto and Apple Carplay will be provided.
2018 Honda CRV engine and specification
Honda claims that the drive dynamics and stability has improved with the addition of new dampers and anti-roll bars. Powering the car in U.S is a 2.4-liter petrol mill in the base trim and a 190 bhp, 1.5-liter petrol in higher variants.
In the U.K, the new CR-V should come with the same 1.5-liter mill and a slightly updated version of the 1.6-litre diesel mill seen on the outgoing model.
Though manual and automatic transmission is provided, U.K is likely to get a 9-speed unit instead of CVT, which is on the US spec variant.
Mileage City/Highway – 32/26 MPG
In India, 2.4-liter petrol and 1.6-liter diesel units are likely to be made available.
In addition, Honda may also deploy a hybrid powertrain for the U.K-spec model (which eventually could reach India) due to slowing demand for diesel models and increase in need for better fuel economy and environment friendliness.
