Honda Details Euro-Spec CR-V

by SpeedLux

The Japanese automaker, Honda, has given out some details on its upcoming SUV, the CR-V facelift for the European market. For those who wonder, the car made its global debut during the 2014 Paris Motor Show event. Yet, back then, there was nothing much known about the vehicle. Nonetheless, today, thanks to new official details from Honda, at least people can already tell what kind of engine options to expect from the vehicle.

Speaking of the engine options, buyers of the vehicle can expect to get a 1.6L diesel engine. This engine is taking the place of the 2.2L i-DTEC diesel engine used on the predecessor. The new engine will offer buyers with 160 hp and 350 Nm of power and torque, respectively. As Honda puts it, this engine will have low CO2 emission besides an unprecedented performance, if it is paired with a four-wheel-drive (4WD) drivetrain and the company’s new 9-speed automatic transmission. However, for customers not willing enough to spend their money on a 4WD variant, the Japanese automaker has also made a front-wheel-drive (FWD) variant available. This one is also going to come with a similar engine, yet it will spit a total power output of 120 hp. This one will have a 6-speed manual transmission instead of the new 9-speed automatic one.

With the new Euro-Spec Honda CR-V facelift, the Japanese company is also showcasing its newly developed intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC) system. This system will enable the vehicle to predict and take proper action in case there are any vehicles that swerve to its lane. To do that, the system counts on a radar and a camera to tell how other vehicles are positioned on the road surrounding the vehicle. A sophisticated algorithm is also in play here and it is this algorithm that helps the car predict how likely a vehicle is to cut in to new CR-V’s lane.

In addition to the i-ACC system, this facelifted version of Honda’s capable SUV will also be coming with quite a few luxury amenities. These include a rearview parking camera, Bluetooth connection, internet/AM/FM/DAB radio, satellite navigation system, internet browsing capability, and also a new audio infotainment system the company dubs the Honda Connect.
