Honda’s Diesel CRV Has Landed

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
