New Honda CRV is revealed to market recently and it is made in UK! Honda CRV is on sale since 1995 and made the impressive appearance on 1998. Since that time, Honda CRV replaced couple of times and CRV had to compete with new vehicles on the market.
Even though, Honda CRV was never in my must buy list but many people bought it. So, CRV is a good car to own, many people cannot be wrong. My only concern with the CRV is the design. Honda CRV never looks appealing to me ever. I am really sorry but no charm at all.
Hopefully, Honda introduced a CRV that looks charming and looks like a proper SUV. The change in the new Honda CRV is not limited with the design, CRV also offers new technologies! Electric power steering, new all-wheel drive technology with much faster reaction time, hill start and descent control, adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation braking system.
However, the engines are not that charming in the new Honda CRV. Only 2-lt petrol and 2.2-lt turbo diesel are available. When you compare with VW Tiguan, Nissan Qashqai or any other competitor, Honda has a very limited engine range. 2-lt petrol engine produces 155 PS and 192 Nm of torque. 2.2-lt turbo diesel produces 150 PS and 350 Nm of torque. With optional five-speed automatic gearbox that is quite old fashion as well.
New Honda CRV looks good, improved but needs more.
