The high-anticipated Honda CR-V Diesel has landed in Australia, offering the best of the admired CR-V’s packaging combined with outstanding fuel efficiency.

“The arrival of this new diesel engine to our CR-V line-up is great news for our customers,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins. “The CR-V already has a large and loyal fan base as our recent sales success shows.”

“Since the fourth-generation CR-V arrived in November of 2012, we have sold just over 14,000 units. We are confident that the addition of the diesel variant will further strengthen the CR-V’s offering in the medium SUV segment.”

“This new diesel variant completes the CR-V offering, which includes a choice of two and four-wheel drive, manual and automatic transmissions as well as the option of our Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) in the petrol 4WD VTi-L,” Mr. Collins said.

The CR-V DTi-S and DTi-L feature a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine delivering 110kW of power @ 4,000rpm and 350 Nm of torque @ 2,000-2,750 rpm.

New to the diesel is Honda’s Real Time 4WD with Intelligent Control System, for extra grip on uneven or slippery surfaces. It also features Hill Descent Control (automatic only) that works in tandem with Vehicle Stability Assist to provide even more security and connection with the road.

The DTi-S features Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control, Anti-lock brakes (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Trailer Stability Assist (TSA), tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension and Hill Start Assist with Transmission Shift Lock (automatic transmission only).

Bluetooth phone and audio streaming with steering wheel mounted controls and USB connectivity ensure you stay connected safely and easily.

The exterior is styled with 17 inch alloys with a full sized spare, halogen headlights with auto-off timer function, LED daytime running lights and LED rear tail lights. A reversing camera, leather wrapped steering wheel, rear parking sensors and satellite navigation round out the DTi-S.

The DTi-L receives smart entry with push-button start, 18 inch alloys with a full sized spare, front and rear parking sensors, bi-xenon HID headlights, Active Cornering Lights and unique leather trim with heated driver and front passenger seats. The eight-way power seat for the driver retains two memory settings for extra convenience.

One of the CR-V Diesel’s strongest features is the excellent fuel economy. The manual DTi-S has a combined cycle rating of just 5.8 litres/100 kilometres and 151g/km CO2 (manual transmission) and the DTi-L has a combined cycle of 6.9 litres/100km and 182g/km CO2.

Honda’s ACE Body Structure is now a well-established feature in Honda’s safety record, providing significantly enhanced occupant protection in a variety of real-world crash conditions. Coupled with the pedestrian injury mitigation design of the front of the CR-V and a five-star ANCAP safety rating, the CR-V enhances occupant and pedestrian safety.

The CR-V exterior colour palette includes Alabaster Silver Metallic, Deep Ocean Blue, Passion Red Pearlescent, Polished Metal Metallic, Twilight Blue Metallic and White Orchid Pearl.
