Introducing the New Sub-120g/km Honda CR-V
5th March 2013
The British-built CR-V is the next model in the Honda line-up to receive the new Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine. Unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC is available in two-wheel drive with manual transmission and will feature 300Nm of torque and 120 PS with CO2 emissions of only 119g/km* to provide an exceptional balance of performance and economy.
This new derivative will be built exclusively for Europe at Honda's production facility in Swindon and will go on sale in autumn 2013.
The 1.6 i-DTEC diesel was launched in the Civic in January 2013 and is the lightest diesel engine in its class and will deliver energetic performance, agile handling and lower running costs including an annual road tax bill of only £30 for CR-V customers.
With the increasing demand for lower cost motoring, the trend for two-wheel drive diesel SUV’s has grown and now represents over a quarter of the total C-SUV market in the UK. The new CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC addresses this trend with competitive CO2 emissions of 119g/km*.
Rising fuel prices combined with increasingly stringent environmental performance targets have led to greater customer preference for low emission vehicles. Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series addresses these concerns whilst also delivering enjoyable driving performance.
