The 2015 Honda CR-V Facelift gets a Paris 2014 debut
It’s two years since the latest Honda CR-V arrived in the UK (and a chunk longer since it arrived in the US and Japan), so it’s a time for a refresh, with the facelifted Honda CR-V for 2015 revealed ahead of a debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show later this week. Under the skin, the four-wheel-drive versions of the new CR-V get a more powerful 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engine from Honda’s Earth Dreams series, which replaces the current model’s 2.2 litre diesel.
The new 1.6 litre comes armed with 158bhp and 258lb/ft of torque and emissions of 130g/km (with the six-speed manual) or 135g/km when mated to the new 9-speed auto ‘box – savings of 11 and 20 cent over the old engine/gearbox combinations.
Lower down the range, the FWD CR-V will have the 118bhp 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engine with 117g/km emissions and the current 2.0 litre petrol will continue to be available with either a manual ‘box or the old 5-speed auto.
Cosmetic tweaks for the 2015 CR-V aren’t major but include the usual tweaks to bumpers, lights, grill and fogs, and Honda say the latest CR-V – which will continue to be built in Swindon – has been specifically engineered for roads in the UK and Europe.
The 2015 Honda CR-V will debut at Paris this week and go on sale in the Uk in March 2015.
