A FRESH looking Honda CR-V will be on the road soon as the current model gets a mild refresh.
Now priced from £30,180 all versions have a hybrid powertrain and come with blue-ringed H badges and e-HEV symbols to signify their electrification.
Other revisions include a new silver finish applied to the centre console, doors cards and dashboard accents, a new 18-inch alloy wheel design for all grades and privacy glass from SE models upwards.
The range topping EX grade CR-V also gains wireless smartphone charging for improved seamless connectivity.
Mechanically, the CR-V's hybrid powertrain technology is built around two electric motors mated to a petrol engine and an innovative fixed-gear transmission.
On the WLTP combined fuel cycle it produces CO2emissions of 151g/km and fuel economy of 42.2mpg on front-wheel drive models, and 161g/km and 39.2mpg for all-wheel drive models.
Other changes include tweaks to the suspension for a better ride and the variable-ratio electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering has been updated for improved low-speed manoeuvrability.
The new models are due for release during December 2020.
