Honda has given new information for the new European version of the CR-V, which debuted in Paris last October and it will be available to the public by next spring.
The car, like the American version, has gained new bumpers, new lights with LED technology, new grille, new side panels, mirrors with integral turn indicators, new wheels, new fog lamps, new bottom of the rear bumper, chrome details and tinted windows .
The interior features the new Honda Connect infotainment system, which will be placed on all versions and includes a seven-inch screen and provides connectivity via Bluetooth, it has reversing camera and comes packed with nine pre-installed applications.
The biggest change though for the car is under the hood, where the 2.2 liter i-DTEC diesel is replaced by the new 1.6 liter i-DTEC engine producing 160 hp with 350 Nm of torque. The engine is available only with all-wheel drive and it is combined with either a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 9-speed automatic transmission.
When it is combined with the manual transmission it emits 130 g/km of CO2, while with the automatic it emits 135 g/km of CO2. There is also a 1.6 liter i-DTEC with 120 hp with front wheel drive, emitting 117 g/km combined with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the 2-liter i-VTEC petrol with 155 hp is still available as in the previous version of the CR-V.
