New Honda CR-V to get turbo power and the choice of five or seven seats
Honda Australia has confirmed that the all-new Honda CR-V will be powered by a turbocharged VTEC petrol engine that will produce 140 kW of power and 240 Nm of torque. That engine will be mated to Honda’s continuously variable transmission (CVT) that will send power to the front or all four wheels, depending on the model.
Another first for the new Honda CR-V is the option of five or seven seats. The new CR-V is built upon a new platform and offers customers greater space and practicality unseen in previous models.
The interior is more premium too, and it has recently won the American WardsAuto 10 Best Interiors awards.
Honda Australia chief Stephen Collins said the new Honda CR-V will develop a strong following in Australia “the Honda CR-V will be a significant player in the medium SUV segment,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins.
“As well as the VTEC Turbo engine line-up across the range, family buyers will also appreciate the versatility afforded by being able to choose between a five, or seven-seat models. Our customers have been asking for this level of versatility and now we’ll deliver it.”
Further details on the CR-V will be provided closer to launch.
