New CR-V on the way

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - News - — THOMAS HUONG

BOOK­INGS for the new 2017 Honda CR-V sport util­ity ve­hi­cle can be placed at all 91 Honda show­rooms na­tion­wide.

Stan­dard in all vari­ants are six airbags, ve­hi­cle sta­bil­ity as­sist (VSA), a re­verse cam­era and smart en­try and push-start but­ton for con­ve­nience.

The fifth gen­er­a­tion CR-V is big­ger than its pre­de­ces­sor, and it sports wing-shaped LED day­time run­ning lights, and LED head­lights, tail and brake lights.

A tail­gate spoiler and dual tone al­loy wheels com­plete the sporty looks.

The ground clear­ance is 198mm (2WD) or 208mm (4WD), pro­vid­ing a bolder stance.

The 2017 CR-V has a more pow­er­ful 1.5-litre VTEC tur­bocharged en­gine mated to an up­graded Con­tin­u­ous Vari­able Trans­mis­sion (CVT).

De­vel­oped un­der Honda’s Earth Dreams Tech­nol­ogy, this new pow­er­train gen­er­ates 193ps at 5,600 rpm, and torque of 243Nm at 2,000 – 5,000rpm.

Honda says the 2017 CR-V con­tin­ues to of­fer sedan-like han­dling, and pro­vides class-lead­ing in­te­rior spa­cious­ness.

Cargo space can be up to 1,084 litres when the rear seats are on flat mode.

For the first time, Honda Malaysia is in­tro­duc­ing its com­pre­hen­sive suite of Honda Sens­ing safety and driver-as­sist tech­nolo­gies in the CR-V, in or­der to avoid or mit­i­gate the sever­ity of a col­li­sion.

Honda Sens­ing uses both a monoc­u­lar cam­era and mil­lime­tre wave radar to en­able a more com- plete view of the road.

The Honda Sens­ing safety suite con­sists of adap­tive cruise con­trol (ACC), low-speed fol­low (LSF), for­ward col­li­sion warn­ing (FCW), col­li­sion mit­i­ga­tion brak­ing sys­tem (CMBS), lane keep­ing as­sist sys­tem (LKAS), road de­par­ture mit­i­ga­tion (RDM), and lane de­par­ture warn­ing (LDW) that will pro­vide driver’s cruis­ing aid, frontal and side col­li­sion de­ter­rence.
