Honda to debut new CR-V for Europe at Geneva show
Honda will be debuting its European CR-V Prototype at the Geneva Motor Show in March and has released photographs of the car ahead of the actual roll out. The 4th Gen Honda CR-comes with a more aggressive stance, deeper sculpting of the body lines and a bolder front fascia.
The public debut will take place on the 6th of March. The fourth generation CR-V has already gone on sale in North America, Japan and other parts of the world, however it will be launched in Europe only by autumn and may also see an Indian launch by mid or end 2012.
The CR-V demonstrates new attention to the in-vehicle experience and features enhanced driver comfort and more advanced functionality and control. The new center display*4 offers Honda’s latest information functionality, providing a wide range of data in a convenient and easy-to-read format. Supporting smoother control, the center display and other elements of the interior allow the driver to grasp current conditions easily and focus on driving.
With a more compact body than the previous model, the CR-V offers a 225 mm longer interior and a 65 L larger cargo area for enhanced utility and convenience (Honda calculations).
The newly developed Real Time?All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) features Intelligent Control System for outstanding off-the-line acceleration on slick or snowy roads, exceptional cornering and enhanced stability on slopes.
Engine options continue to be the 2.0 and 2.4 litre petrol engines but get better performance figures.
