Honda Launches New Third-Generation CR-V



31st January, 2007

2007 Honda CR-V

Honda Australia has launched its third-generation CR-V range.

The new CR-V range is available in three variants – CR-V, CR-V Sport and CR-V Luxury. All three variants feature a 2.4-litre DOHC i-VTEC engine with 125 kW of power (up 7 kW over the previous car) and a Real-Time 4WD system.

Engine torque is 218 Nm, with a flatter torque curve than the outgoing model making for smoother acceleration and easier driving. Paired with the engine is the choice of a new six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission with a Drive-by-Wire throttle.

The third-generation variants feature Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), front and side airbags with Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), Active Front Head Restraints, ABS brakes and an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure for greater safety protection in a crash. The CR-V Sport and Luxury gain curtain airbags.

The CR-V’s centre of gravity has been lowered, the track is wider and the chassis has been stiffened for better handling. The CR-V rides on front MacPherson strut suspension and rear multi-link suspension with 17-inch wheels.

The CR-V seats five and has a long list of comfort features, including cruise control, a tilt & telescopic adjustable steering wheel fitted with audio controls, MP3-capable CD player with AM/FM tuner and speed sensitive audio volume that automatically adjusts to match the speed of the car. All variants also have an audio input jack in the centre console for plugging in a personal MP3 player.

The CR-V Sport and CR-V Luxury both feature a sunroof, fog-lights and a six-stack CD-player while the Luxury also receives heated front leather seats.

Fuel economy is 10.0 litres per 100 km and is achieved running on standard 91 RON fuel.

The third-generation CR-V will be available from Honda dealerships from 15th February, 2007 and has a recommended retail price beginning at $31,990.
