2014 Paris Motor Show: Euro-Spec 2015 Honda CR-V Facelift unveiled

Yesterday, Honda unveiled the 2015 CR-V Facelift in the United States, but today the Japanese car manufacturer also revealed the Euro-Spec CR-V Facelift. Just in time to make its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the 2015 Honda CR-V Facelift Euro-Spec gets a new look thanks to the redesigned headlamps that incorporate LED daytime running lights, a restyled front grille, a refreshed tailgate designed as well as new front and rear bumpers.

Under the hood of the four-wheel drive model, we find a new 1.6-liter i-DTEC four-cylinder diesel engine from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series that replaces the 2.2-liter i-DTEC powerplant.

Bolted to a six-speed manual transmission, the new engine develops 160 hp and 350 Nm of torque, with CO2 emissions of 130 g/km, which represents an 11 percent improvement compared with the unit it replaces.

2018 Paris Motor Show: Honda unveils production-ready 181-hp CR-V Hybrid

Honda is moving forward with its electrification plans in Europe after unveiling the production-ready version of the new 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. It was part of a number of creations that the Japanese carmaker is displaying in Paris, including the refreshed Honda HR-V SUV, and a specially-commissioned Civic Type R ‘Art Car’.

In September 2017, Honda took the wraps off a near-production Euros-spec prototype of the CR-V Hybrid at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, with plans to sell the production version exclusively in Europe. By then, it was believed that the Euro-spec CR-V Hybrid will be the replacement for the 160hp i-DTEC diesel version of the SUV, as part of the carmaker’s answer to the regulations affecting the market of diesel engines.

Back then, Honda was tight-lipped about the technical details of the prototype. The carmaker only revealed that its electrified powertrain will feature an electric motor and a 2.0-liter four cylinder i-Vtec gasoline engine.

Honda to debut European-spec CR-V at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Honda revealed that its new CR-V is now set to make its official debut in Europe through the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This same model had already been presented in U.S. shores back in 2016. With this new model, Honda hopes to raise the standards for SUVs as it relates to refinement, the quality of the interior, and space. Indeed, this new CR-V model is expected to bring with it a new design, new powertrains, and new technologies.

This new CR-V will come equipped with the brand's hybrid technology. This will be the first time a Honda SUV offered for the European market will have such a system. It will utilize Honda's Intelligent Multi Mode Drive hybrid system, or i-MMD.

This system is composed of two electric motors and the i-VTEC 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine. Further, the system does not use a conventional transmission but rather has a more compact unit having a single fixed-gear ratio. As such, this combination allows for effortless driveability and real-world efficiency.

Euro-spec 2018 Honda CR-V Hybrid Prototype is en route to Frankfurt

Following its debut at the Auto Shanghai early this year, the 2018 CR-V’s next stop will be next week’s Internationale Automobil-Austellung (IAA) in Germany. Honda’s first electric SUV will soon be posing as a near-production prototype which is to be sold exclusively in Europe. The 2018 Honda CR-V Hybrid will appear together with Honda Jazz’s new Sport trim and Urban EV concept during the two-week event.

The Euro-spec hybrid will be replacing the 160hp i-DTEC diesel as an answer to the current regulations affecting the market of diesel engines. For its design, the Hybrid SUV in prototype form will be very similar to the US-spec CR-V as well as the model previewed earlier in China. The lower LED light bar, in place of the round shaped fog lights, is just among the subtle variations on the exterior to draw the line between the 1.5-liter conventional engine and the hybrid set-up.

Honda is very tight-lipped about the technical details and only revealed that the electrified powertrain will consist of an electric motor and a 2.0-liter i-Vtec gasoline engine with four cylinder that runs on the Atkinson cycle. All the same, the complete specs will surely come out before or after Honda launches the CR-V hybrid in Europe sometime in 2018. Early speculations suggest that Honda’s next SUV will borrow Honda Accord’s hybrid set-up but it is better to trust the company’s official announcement. Currently, the Accord hybrid boasts a total of 212hp output with two-motor hybrid technology that no longer sees the need for conventional transmission. Rather, it only makes use of a single fixed gear ratio to push power down the wheels.

Honda will be displaying the electrically assisted CUV in their showrooms later this year. This has been confirmed in China at least. Fresh from its debut at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, the latest hybrid CR-V will soon go on sale in Asia’s fastest growing market for hybrid vehicles.

While the engineering for the China-bound CR-V Hybrid has already been finalized, it only makes sense that Honda would be considering the US as its next important step. In the US, the Honda Accord is in fact using the same powertrain found on the newly electrified crossover.

Honda however hasn't disclosed the exact details for the CR-V hybrid’s powertrain while on its premiere. If the CRV’s hybrid specs are indeed the same as those on the Accord, we can therefore expect the electrified crossover to be running on a 143hp (107kW), 129 lb-ft (175Nm) of torque, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This will come equipped with a 1.3kWh lithium ion battery pack with a total power of 212hp (158kW) to match.

With Consumer Reports confidently saying that the significantly evolved new generation of the Honda CR-V would still be a bestseller for the 2017 model year, many have been waiting for the Japanese carmaker to release the pricing details of this all-new SUV. Honda’s online configurator already includes setups for the new generation of the CR-V.

For those who really want a piece of CR-V action, you may own this next-generation SUV from Honda available at a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $24,045. This MSRP, however, does not include taxes, license and registration as well as the $900 destination charge. Of course, the final price is set by Honda’s dealerships.

At $24,045, a customer gets the Honda CR-V LX variant, a two-wheel drive (front wheel) model with power provided for by a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine. This 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine sends power – pegged at 184 hp of output at 6,400 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque available at 3,900 rpm –to the front wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission that is known for its fuel efficiency and smooth performance. The base Honda CR-V LX version rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and features a black cloth interior.

When it comes to being the top crossover, there are only two models that can confidently say they have been in the market for at least 20 years. This is the CR-V from Honda and the RAV4 from Toyota. It really does not come as a surprise to know why these two are also the most popular.

Many are likely familiar with the fact that utility vehicles had a start during the 1970s with the 4x4s. However as more customers demanded vehicles that offer better ride, displays improved fuel economy, and comes with the latest in infotainment and electronic systems, this has led to crossovers entering the market.

For the 2017 CR-V in particular, Consumer Reports reveals that while the prior generation had a rather bland interior, the new version has a cabin that is not only plush, but classy as well. According to Honda, when they developed the new CR-V, they wanted a crossover utility vehicle that would be fitting for the upmarket. It is no wonder then that the 2017 CR-V not only has a cabin that is quieter but it is also a model that delivers a better ride. This was a result of two things with the first being an excellent usage of noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) engineering and the second the inclusion of an active noise cancelling system. Honda however was apparently not done with this as the brand managed to give the CR-V a more enjoyable drive by using qualities previously seen on the Civic.

Honda has unveiled the fifth generation of its hot-selling SUV – the 2017 Honda CR-V. The latest iteration of the CR-V should help it maintain its benchmark status in the compact SUV segment especially with its new exterior and interior design, new powertrain and chassis technology as well as new features.

Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division, remarked that the new Honda CR-V ups the standards in the segment in terms of performance, roominess and premium content as well as fuel economy and value.

2017 version of the CR-V (EX and higher trims) now comes standard with Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. These variants of the 2017 CR-V are expected to generate 75 percent of the SUV’s sales. Honda Sensing includes: Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Collision Mitigation Braking (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian sensing capability; and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow and Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS).

Honda is one of the forerunners in this highly evolving automotive world. Forty years seem to be not too long ago especially for a brand that lives up to its original concept. The Civic’s long-standing heritage has proven that it still is “a car for all people, a car for the world”. Talking about evolving, Honda moves forward with its latest 10th generation Civic.

This step is considerably important in today’s highly saturated C-segment as well as in keeping up with the company’s much talked about development program. But since everything seems to get better with time, perhaps it’s only right to expect better driving dynamics along with more distinctive styling, versatile practicality and sportier design. You get the picture. The 10th generation Honda Civic has finally arrived.

The Civic after all has earned the title as the most popular Honda model in Europe. Simply put, when Europeans think of Honda, the first thing that comes into their minds is the Civic. For that same reason, the team behind the “rejuvenated” Honda Civic applied new ideas and strategies in building its new body. Then of course, part of that is to come up with better chassis and aerodynamics design (so as not to disappoint their loyal customers).

After showing how the Porsche Macan fails the moose test, the Swedish magazine Teknikens Varld is back, this time with a problem observed on the all-wheel drive Honda CR-V. No, the Japanese crossover didn’t fail to pass the moose test, but it failed to show it all-wheel drive system works.

This is not the first time the Swedish magazine faces the same problem with the CR-V as they also did this test with the previous CR-V model and after a software update from Honda, the vehicle performed well.

Now, the new model shows the same problems and it is not able to climb uphill when the front wheels have no friction. According to an official response from Honda, its AWD system uses a compact, fuel-efficient rear differential and its design requires certain torque limitation for the device to work effectively in real conditions.
