PRICE Prices are up by between $300 and $1000 on most models, to $33,590 drive-away to $48,535 drive-away. But Honda says there’s more equipment plus a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty. TECH There’s a new digital widescreen dash. Automatic emergency braking, lane keeping and radar cruise control are still available only on the dearest variant. PERFORMANCE The new 1.5-litre turbo has more grunt than the previous model’s non-turbo 2.0- and 2.4-litre engines. Performance is helped by a new CVT, replacing the previous model’s conventional five-speed auto. DRIVING The new model has a bigger footprint than before so it feels more sure-footed in corners. Steering is very responsive thanks to fewer turns lock to lock and the turning circle is the same as the previous model. DESIGN Completely new from the ground up, it’s longer, wider, taller and roomier than before. The brakes are bigger to cope with the extra 49kg-107kg. Cargo space has been trimmed slightly to create more room for the second row.
