One of Australia’s favourite SUVs – the Honda CR-V – will soon be
available with a diesel engine.
“We will add a diesel to our CR-V range in January 2014,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins.

In addition, the diesel variant features Honda’s Real Time Four-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System for extra
grip on uneven or slippery surfaces and Hill Descent Control that works in tandem with Vehicle Stability Assist to
provide even more peace of mind.
