New Honda CR-V set for autumn release | New Release - Car News May 2018

The next-generation Honda CR-V, with improved practicality, on European sale this year.

The all-new CR-V will be more practical than ever, with a redesigned wheelbase resulting in greater cabin space while retaining the same length. Front passengers gain 5mm in headroom and 16mm more hip room, while the tandem distance between front and rear passengers is improved by 50mm. A thinner fuel tank positioned ahead of the rear wheels helps increase rear legroom by a further 50mm. The CR-V’s rear doors open by an extra 6 degrees, aiding easy access for passengers and for the fitment of child seats.

Petrol models will be available with seven seats, with all three seat rows having reclining seats.  Second row seats will slide back and forth by 150mm, creating a large entry aperture and comfortable seating position in the back. Third row seatbacks fold down and forwards to provide a larger boot capacity, and the boot has a two stage adjustable cargo floor and flat surface.

Extra-large capacity door pockets, created by moving the speakers further up in the door panels, are designed to fit a full size tablet device. A new three-mode centre console adapts to provide a convenient tray for a smart phone, or a large capacity space big enough for a small handbag. On Elegance trim upwards the CR-V includes twin rear USB ports providing charging points for phones, tablets and other personal electronic devices. Executive grades benefit from a hands-free tailgate.

Deliveries of the all-new Honda CR-V in Europe are expected to commence this autumn.
