Honda has revised their British-built CR-V SUV in time for Christmas.

The revisions include a more comfortable, high quality interior featuring new 3D back-lit dials, steering wheel controls, retractable rear seat headrests and chrome instrument surrounds.

Exterior revisions include a new grille, bumpers, front and rear light clusters, 16 inch wheels as standard, uprated brakes, an improved 4WD system and new curtain airbags (for Sport and Exec models).

The CR-V retains Honda’s 2.0 litre i-VTEC petrol engine, and will be joined by the award-winning 2.2 i-CTDi diesel next March.

Honda has retained a three model line up with cars now graded SE, Sport and Executive. Prices start at £17,200 for the 2.0 i-VTEC SE, rising to £22,800 for the 2.2 i-CTDi Executive.
