The new 2015 Honda CR-V will be priced from £22,340 when it arrives in UK showrooms this March.  It will be available in four trim levels with a choice of three engines.

The new CR-V has received something of a face-lift, and also marks the introduction of a new 160PS 1.6-litre diesel engine, plus the option of a new nine-speed automatic transmission.

The existing 120PS 1.6-litre diesel will continue to be available in 2WD-form and with manual transmission, while the new 160PS unit will be offered in 4WD only.

Emissions figures for the new engine range from 129-139 g/km depending on model, with economy of 57.7 to 55.3 mpg.

The CR-V range will start with a 2.0-litre petrol-powered two-wheel-drive S model, with the new 160PS power-plant starting from £27,570.  The new nine-speed auto adds around £1,600.

Trim levels start with an S model, itself hardly lacking in kit with dual-zone climate control, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, and other goodies.

SE models add a leather steering wheel and gear-lever, automatic headlights and wipers, auto-dipping rear-view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, rear view camera, power-folding door mirrors, front fog-lights, and Honda’s new Connect infotainment system.

The SR grade brings part-leather seats (heated in the front), ambient lighting, a stereo upgrade, roof rails, privacy glass, bi-xenon headlights with cornering lights, 18-inch alloy wheels and a few other niceties.

Top-spec EX models include key-less entry, electric driver’s seat with memory, full leather interior, power tailgate, and a panoramic sunroof.

A Sensing Pack can be added to EX models for an additional £900, and includes collision mitigation braking, lane keep assist and departure warning, traffic sign recognition, blind spot information, high beam support, and the company’s new intelligent adaptive cruise control system that can predict when cars are about to pull in front.  A subset of these systems can be added to SE and SR grades for £500.
