2015 Honda CR-V will be unveiled during this year Paris Motor Show with a new front fascia, redesigned rear end and an improved range of engines.
From outside, the new CR-V comes with a new front grille, redesigned headlamps, fog lights, skid-plate and bumper to lift the front aesthetics. The rear end has some new taillights with LED technology while a refreshed tailgate design and bumper complete the enhancements.
Important upgrades under the hood, where Honda replaces the old 2.2 liter diesel i-DTEC unit with a more powerful version of the 1.6 liter Earth Dreams i-DTEC. The engine delivers 160 hp and 350 NM of torque while emitting a class-leading sub 130 g/km of CO2 – an 11% improvement compared to the previous unit.
With this amount of power, the engine becomes the most powerful 1.6 liter diesel unit in the world. This unit comes with four-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission.
Honda CR-V Customers will also have the chance of choosing nine-speed automatic transmission, with CO2 emissions of less than 135 g/km – 20% better than its predecessor.
