A good start in 2015 for Honda CR-V! The car got some comprehensive updates that make it even more attractive. There is a new diesel engine and nine-speed automatic gearbox that aim to deliver great fuel economy. In addition, Honda has added a new technology, which is a world-first that comes to enhance occupant safety. There is an innovative app-driven connectivity system, which is now standard. And in terms of driving fun, the CR-V got reengineered. Of course, the designers did made some minor styling changes to the exterior.

First, the CR-V is offered with a more powerful diesel engine as well as an optional nine-speed automatic transmission. Furthermore, the new 160 PS 1.6-litre i-DTEC four-cylinder diesel engine will be available with four-wheel drive. The result: outstanding performance and low CO2 emissions.

The combination of both – new engine and nine-speed gearbox, will deliver exceptional fuel economy, which you can see in details below. Just to spoil it a bit: it is one of the best power-to-consumption ratio of any engine on sale today.

Honda Connect infotainment system is the second highlight in the list with updates. It will offer convenience and connectivity while on the road. Its key characteristics include DAB / FM / AM and internet radio, Bluetooth connectivity, internet browsing, satellite navigation and rear-view parking camera.

World-first active safety feature will also be a highlight in the facelifted CR-V. In fact, the car will premiere Honda's new Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC) system as part of company's commitment to ‘Safety for Everyone'. The system predicts and automatically reacts to other vehicles that are ‘cutting-in' to the vehicle's lane.

i-ACC does this via the use of camera and a radar to sense the position of other vehicles on the road. Combined with the enhanced suspension and optimised NVH measures, the new CR-V will definitely deliver more refined yet dynamic drive.

2015 Honda CR-V Facelift will be distributed only in Europe and is scheduled to arrive in showrooms this Spring.
