The model is highlighted by the updated design, more interior space and progress in mechanics, since it joined the first turbocharged engine in its history.
Honda first showed the fifth generation of the CR-V, the model for the SUV medium segment, born in 1997 and with a history of success in the US and other markets.
The new model is characterized by having incorporated the new generation of the body structure Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE), to which is added a completely new design that recalls the previous CR-V, but with a good dose of modernity.
Other exterior features of the new SUV are the LED daytime running lights, 17 or 18 inch alloy wheels, the thick rear shelf and generous rear tail-lights, now with “L” shape.
Indoors, the model benefits from the new design iron board, which is accompanied by a 7 inch touch screen on the center console, and a dashboard with generous central display. It also has more space for occupants.
The new generation also welcomed the brand new 1.5 gasoline engine with four-cylinder, direct injection and turbocharger (the first with this system for the model), for which it announced a power of 190 horses. It is accompanied by the 2.4 i-VTEC, while the box is an automatic CVT (continuously variable) and traction is 4 × 2 or integral.
The equipment also has evolved, since it now includes systems as assistant to lane departure, autonomous braking with Forward Collision Warning and Pedestrian Detection, adaptive cruise control, automatic route light and rear cross-traffic alert.
The list also has dual zone climate control, electric parking brake, automatic tailgate, audio compatible with Apple and Android Auto, electric power steering with variable ratio and remote start engine.
