Frankfurt Preview: 2010 Honda CR-V European version

Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2009

Honda CR-V comes with a new look, a new diesel engine, and an automatic gearbox for diesel models. Its unique car-like handling characteristics have made the model very popular and the refined 2010 Honda CR-V is sure to be a hit too.

It will feature a distinctive new front bumper and grille, a revised rear bumper, and color-coded bumpers on EX grades.

Providing for an even more premium finish are the newly designed 17-inch (SE) and 18-inch (ES and EX) alloy wheels and upgraded fabrics and plastics inside.

A new audio console design has also been introduced, while improved sound deadening around the engine and cabin makes the CR-V an even quieter and more relaxing car to drive.

The CR-V will be powered by a new diesel engine, the same 2.2-litre i-DTEC which debuted in the latest Accord in 2008.

It produces 150PS at 4000rpm (up 10PS) and torque of 350Nm at 2000rpm (up 10Nm). From the launch in 2010, the smooth and refined diesel automatic transmission will be available on all CR-V model grades.

All engines in the CR-V line-up are designed to meet Euro 5 legislation. The SUV segment active safety systems -- the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) -- continue to be available. Three new paint colors are available for the 2010 CR-V: Premium White Pearl, Urban Titanium and Alabaster Silver.
