Honda Had A Revised CR-V In Paris 2014
Honda At Paris had more than the Type R to excite the visitors as the 2015 CR-V made an appearance with some interesting new features. The first thing you will notice are the slightly design changes. Up front the car receives new headlamps, a new front grille as well as fog lights while round the back there’s a new bumper, LED combination lamps and a new tailgate design. Those are just the styling differences though, the big changes happening beneath the skin.
The biggest news has to be the addition of the 9-speed automatic gearbox on the CR-V, though, even if the 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel will now be replaced by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder unit in Europe and some other selected markets.
This new engine will be making 160bhp and 350Nm of torque and can be hooked up to the manual 6-speed gearbox that helps it achieve a CO2 emission rating of under 130 g/km. Surprisingly, when hooked up to the 9-speed auto, the rating goes up to 135 g/km. A 120bhp 1.6-liter i-DTEC will continue to be available, in two-wheel drive versions with a manual transmission.
Honda will still be offering the popular 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine featuring an inline 4-cylinder architecture, making 245Nm of torque and 185bhp. Furthermore, you can only have it connected to a CVT automatic gearbox. The other new feature is a new design 17” aluminum wheels and the other luxury additions include sunroof, privacy glass, fog lights, security system, cargo cover, fully automatic headlights, tweeter speakers, body colored door handles and mirrors, variable speed windshield wipers, USB jack, seatbelt pockets and illuminated vanity mirrors.
