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.
What’s more interesting is that the new 2015 CR-V Facelift is available with an optional nine-speed automatic transmission, with CO2 emissions of less than 135 g/km.
The two-wheel drive diesel Honda CR-V sticks to the 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel engine that generates 120 hp, with CO2 emissions as low as 117 g/km. Developed and engineered for the European drivers, the 2015 Honda CR-V Facelift will be built at company’s plant in Swindon, UK.
