HONDA has confirmed the pricing and specifications for its new CR-V e:HEV and e:PHEV and the line-up will cost from £45,895.
The sixth generation of the CR-V will be available later this year and comes with a bolder appearance and class-leading levels of practicality, combined with exceptional connectivity and comfort.
The popular medium-sized SUV will be available with either a full hybrid (e:HEV) or, for the first time in Europe, a plug-in hybrid (e:PHEV) powertrain with the latter, delivering up to 50 miles of all-electric range.
The latest CR-V is now wider, longer, and taller than the outgoing model - with its 40mm longer wheelbase helping to create more interior space, including 16mm more rear legroom and an 18 per cent increase in luggage capacity. It also has a more aggressive front-end, distinguishing e:HEV and e:PHEV variants by their own exclusive grille design.
Thin headlights and new signature daytime running lights combine to enhance this visual appeal further, while at the rear, the vertical brake light and turn signal combination is an upgrade of the CR-V taillight design.
It will bethe first European model to feature Honda SENSING 360 - anomnidirectional safety and driver assist system which removes blind spots around the vehicle. This contributes to collision avoidance and alleviates driver burden, making it the next step in Honda's ambition to bring traffic collision fatalities involving its automobiles and motorcycles to zero by 2050.
"The CR-V is an integral part of Honda's heritage, and the latest iteration further builds on its excellent reputation. It delivers the performance, comfort and versatility that Honda customers have come to expect,"said Rebecca Adamson, head of automobile at Honda UK."Along with a new sophisticated design, luxurious interior and intuitive technology. For the first time, this SUV is also available in either a full hybrid or a plug-in hybrid powertrain, catering to a wider range of customer lifestyles and requirements."
Two trim levels will be available starting in Elegance specification with hybrid Advance models priced from £48,995 and the plug-in version costing from £53,995.
