What’s new on Honda CR-V?

 

The Honda CR-V is a vehicle of the SUV range, developed since 1996 by the Japanese manufacturer Honda . The meaning of CR-V comes from the English “Comfortable Runabout Vehicle”. The Honda CR-V was in 2012, the best-selling SUV in the world as well as in the United States … while Honda was putting this vehicle on the market in order not to compete with the Passport! These vehicles are assembled at the Swindon plant in the United Kingdom.

 

The first generation of the CRV dates from 1996, at the level of the engine there were 2 engines 2.0L 4-cylinder gasoline, developing from 126 to 146 hp. The first diesel engine for this vehicle will be installed in 2001 in the 2nd generation of the vehicle, a 140-hp i-CTDI.

 

A radical restyling is operated during the 3rd generation of the vehicle in 2006, with a much more rounded design. A winning choice that will make Honda’s SUV the most popular vehicle in its class.

 

In 2011, the fourth generation of the vehicle offers two-wheel drive, and a slight restylage of the body.

 

Honda has produced four generations of CR-V
