Just in time for the colder months, the Honda CR-V arrives on New Zealand shores in July this year.
The fifth generation, redesigned sport SUV includes a larger quieter cabin with more versatile cargo space as well as more seats, with a seven-seater CR-V model available in NZ for the first time.
“The new Honda CR-V raises the bar in every way, delivering more style, performance, economy, space, safety, connectivity and premium interior than ever before,” says Nadine Bell, general manager marketing, Honda New Zealand.
The new CR-V includes 18” alloy wheels and narrower A-pillars for improved visibility. An electric power tailgate is also part of the package.
The 2018 CR-V will feature CR-V’s first ever turbocharged engine, a more powerful and fuel efficient 1.5 litre, direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder powerplant rated at 142kw of power with 243 Nm of torque.
The 2018 CR-V will also include a 7-inch touchscreen featuring Advanced Display Audio with in-built Navigation and compatibility with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
The CR-V will come in 2WD and AWD high performance, mid-spec touring models with the addition of a new 2WD sport seven-seater to the luxury sport range and the AWD sport featuring the suite of Honda’s active safety sensing technology.
