Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V

The 2019 Honda CR-V is a large SUV and a real contender with the additional of the new hybrid power plant. The interior is also a step up in both quality and technology compared with the old car. Its traditional rev-counter and speedo dials are replaced by a 7.0-inch digital set of dials as standard, and another 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen sits on the dashboard from SE trim and up. The best bet for most people will be this mid-level SE, which gets LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, climate control, a rear view camera as well as parking sensors front and rear and Honda’s 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android auto. The CR-V is available as a five or seven seat car.

Honda CR-V Hybrid now available

Two engine options are available: a 1.5 litre petrol with 170bhp as a six-speed manual and 190bhp as an Auto. The manual is available with either front-wheel or four-wheel drive, the CVT Auto is all wheel drive only. The 2WD manual can return a claimed 44.1 miles per gallon but the reports are that mid 30’s is more realistic and even lower around town. The Hybrid option is a 181bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine and an electric motor the hybrid CR-V can return a claimed 51.4 miles per gallon, reports are 45 mpg is a realistic real world return which is very impressive for a large SUV. 0-62mph in 8.8sec (9.2 sec on the four-wheel-drive version) but you do have to deal with the CVT gearbox.
