Honda is quite rightly proud of the fact their CR-V, first launched all the way back in 1995, has gone on to become the world’s best-selling SUV. Back then, the Honda found itself largely in a market of one. Today, SUVs are everywhere, and that means Honda can't afford to rest on its laurels.
The new Honda CR-V Hybrid will arrive in showrooms next February, available in a choice of two- or four-wheel-drive and priced from £29,105.
Although it's been available in the US for a while, the European version of the new Honda CR-V has now been officially unveiled, ahead of its public debut at the Geneva motor show next month.
Launching in February will be two new special editions for the Civic and CR-V ranges - the Civic Limited Edition, and the CR-V Black Edition.
The Honda CR-V might not be desperately exciting in the way some of its other efforts are, but it's consistently proven itself as practical, comfortable and efficient family transport. For 2015, Honda has taken the opportunity to tweak the styling, but they've also introduced a new infotainment system, a more powerful 1.6-litre diesel engine, and a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The Honda CR-V has been given a new look for the 2015 model year, a more powerful version of the company's well-regarded 1.6-litre diesel engine with 160PS, and the option of a new nine-sped automatic transmission.
We’ve always liked the Honda CR-V. It offers a thoroughly practical take on the family SUV but with an added dose of refinement and low running costs. However, Honda clearly feel the CR-V has reached a time in its life where a gentle nip and tuck are required, and to address that, the company has created a pair of special editions – the Black Edition and this, the White Edition.
