Honda’s Diesel CRV Has Landed
The much-anticipated Honda CR-V Diesel has landed in Australia, offering excellent fuel economy.
‘‘The arrival of this new diesel engine to our CR-V line-up is great news for customers,’’ Honda Australia director Stephen Collins said.
‘‘The CR-V already has a large and loyal fan base as our recent sales success shows.
‘‘Since the fourth-generation CR-V arrived in November of 2012, we have sold just over 14 000 units. We are confident that the addition of the diesel variant will further strengthen the CR-V’s offering in the medium SUV segment.
‘‘This new diesel variant completes the CR-V offering, which includes a choice of two and four-wheel drive, manual and automatic transmissions as well as the option of advanced driver assist system in the petrol 4WD VTi-L,’’ Mr Collins said.
The CR-V DTi-S and DTi-L feature a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine.
New to the diesel is Honda’s real time 4WD with intelligent control system, for extra grip on uneven or slippery surfaces.
It also features hill descent control (automatic only) that works in tandem with vehicle stability assist to provide even more security and connection with the road.
The exterior is styled with 17 inch alloys with a full sized spare, halogen headlights with autooff timer function, LED daytime running lights and LED rear tail lights.
A reversing camera, leather wrapped steering wheel, rear parking sensors and satellite navigation round out the DTi-S.
The DTi-L receives smart entry with push-button start, 18 inch alloys with a full sized spare, front and rear parking sensors, bi-xenon HID headlights, active cornering lights and leather trim with heated driver and front passenger seats.
The eight-way power seat for the driver retains two memory settings for extra convenience.
Honda’s ACE body structure provides significantly enhanced occupant protection in a variety of real-world crash conditions.
Coupled with the pedestrian injury mitigation design of the front of the CR-V and a five-star ANCAP safety rating, the CR-V enhances occupant and pedestrian safety. Priced from $38 290 the Honda CR-V Diesel is on sale now in Honda showrooms.
