Honda Australia has announced re-pricing and generous specification upgrades for its 2010 Honda CR-V, which is now on sale.

Key features:

  • Curtain airbags introduced to entry model
  • Front, side and curtain airbags now standard across the range
  • Improved NVH
  • Revised front suspension
  • Revised exterior styling
  • Auto lights and wipers on Luxury model

Heading the list of new features is the addition of curtain airbags on the entry model; now every CR-V in the range has dual front, side and full-length curtain airbags as standard.

The CR-V’s styling is re-energised with distinctive new bumpers, an evolution of the two-step grille, revised exterior mirrors to further reduce wind noise, chrome exhaust tip and new design alloy wheels on both the Sport and Luxury models.

The Honda CRV’s car-like ride and handling has been further improved with changes to the front castor angles and compliances bushes at the rear.

NVH levels are lower, with extra sound deadening around the engine bay and throughout the entire cabin, adding to the high-quality refinement of the CR-V while making it even quieter and more relaxing to drive.
