The new CR-V is powered by our latest high-technology 1.5 VTEC TURBO petrol engine, which provides the perfect balance between performance and efficiency. It can be specified with a crisp 6-speed manual gearbox (173PS) or with an advanced 7-speed CVT (193PS) transmission. When you choose the CVT version you have the facility to drive the car in a relaxed, fully automatic mode or, if the mood takes you, to change gear using the racing car-inspired, steering wheel mounted, paddle shift
The world’s favourite SUV has the design hallmarks that made it such a success in the first place: a distinctive presence on the outside with premium quality on the inside. Now there’s a new hybrid drivetrain available, equipped with an i-MMD two-motor system. It combines petrol power and the instant response of an electrical motor. Smooth, efficient and beautifully quiet.
Our new CVT automatic transmission produces a direct and connected feeling when you accelerate. It comes with an Early Downshift During Braking feature which recognises deceleration and gives you engine braking when travelling downhill. Conversely, this unique Honda feature will keep engine revs high when you have to momentarily slow, then quickly accelerate, such as in an overtaking manoeuvre.
