Honda goes back to
HONDA is extending its Black Edition design concept to the HR-V crossover SUV and at the same time is launching an additional limited run of the popular CR-V Black Edition .
Upgrades on the standard SE version of the HR-V include black running boards, skid plates, front grille and mirror caps, 18-inch alloys and, inside, buyers will get some nice touches including special edition leather upholstery and carpets.
The special editions will be on Honda dealer forecourts later this month and the entry level model 1.5 i-VTEC manual comes in at £25,000, an automatic CVT version at £26,210, and the manual diesel at £26,820.
Launched in the UK in 2015, the HR-V marked Honda's return to the compactcrossover SUV sector and the latest version stays true to the HR-V-s roots by offering the drive and dynamism of a coupe, but with the practicality and versatility of an SUV.
The CR-V Black Edition is available in 4WD with a choice of petrol or diesel and manual or automatic transmisions, with a price of £31,000 for the manual 2.0 i-VTEC, and £34,300 for the automatic 1.6 i-DTEC.
It comes with black running boards, tailgate spoiler, front grille and skid plates and 19-in black alloys. Inside, the full leather interior features contrasting stitching with an embossed Black Edition logo on the front and rear seats, with the door panels and arm rests also finished in black leather. This premium interior is finished off with carpet mats complete with the Black Edition logo.
Dave Hodgetts, managing director of Honda UK, says: "Both the HR-V and CR-V are much loved by customers, and the CR-V Black Edition has gone down extremely well with those looking for something a little more distinctive and individual along with some nice premium touches.".
