Last week, Honda officially revealed the first photo with the 2015 CR-V Facelift, but today the official details and specs as well as plenty of photos were released. Exterior changes are obvious and include restyled front and rear bumpers, a new front grille, new headlights which now include LED daytime running lights, new exterior mirrors and wheels.
The interior comes with upgraded materials but also new standard features such as a center console armrest, sliding sunvisors and rear ventilation ducts. Available features include a power tailgate, 10-way power and heated driver’s seat and Display Audio.
Under the hood, there is a new Earth Dreams Technology 2.4-liter DOHC i-VTEC inline four-cylinder petrol engine that generates 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The engine is bolted to a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) with G-design Shift that contributes to an increased EPA fuel economy rating of 27/34/29 mpg.
According to the official press release, the CR-V is available with a new top-of-the-line Touring trim that includes Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) as well as the first CR-V adoption of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
Honda will offer the CR-V in five trim lines: the base CR-V LX (starts at $24,150), the CR-V EX (starts at $26,250), CR-V EX-L (starts at $28,850) and the EX-L Navi which starts at $29,880. The 2015 Honda CR-V Touring starts at $32,350. Prices include shipping.
