Honda has confirmed pricing and specification for the new British built CR-V which will be landing in dealerships in October. Prices will start from a competitive £21,395 OTR for the entry level 2.0 i-VTEC manual S grade 2WD model and rise to £30,995 for the top of the range 2.2 i-DTEC EX AWD with manual transmission.
The introduction of the 2WD allows the new CR-V to enter the market with a lower entry price, thus broadening the sales potential for this model going forward. Honda has also improved the specifications through the whole of the range, whilst still managing to keep costs in line with the third generation CR-V.
The new fourth generation CR-V offers even greater quality, practicality and refinement than its predecessor and with environmental concerns of increasing importance, both the 2.0 i-VTEC and 2.2 i-DTEC engines emit significantly less CO2. Plus, for the first time in Europe, the new CR-V will be offered with a choice of two- and four-wheel drive.
Customers still get the Tardis-like interior. With the rear seats in place the boot capacity is a spacious 589 litres and this extends to 1669 litres when the seats are down. The practicality is further enhanced by the addition of keyless entry and power tailgate (standard on EX trim level), which makes it easier for owners to further maximise the boot space.
