Honda launches new and improved CR-V

Explore the ground breaking features and sleek design of the new Honda CR-V

Honda’s all-new CR-V is set to go on sale in South African during February. The sixth generation of the CR-V debuts with a bolder, more confident appearance and exceptional levels of practicality, safety, connectivity and comfort.

Engineers have refined every aspect of the CR-V with a focus on the advanced and sporty values of the Honda brand, with the aim of building the ultimate all-round SUV. Greater sophistication of driver aids, active safety and connected technologies, as well as the application of high-quality materials throughout the cabin, all serve to elevate the vehicle proposition.

Modern design

While the all-new CR-V retains its familiar silhouette, the design has evolved to increase its road presence. This starts with more aggressive, defined styling upfront along with a large aperture and stylised grille.

The horizontal lower window and crease lines form part of a sleeker side profile, as does the door handle redesign that further elevates the noiseless exterior view.

Defined lower character lines and double arc wheel arches add volume and depth to the vehicle’s flanks. Smart 18-inch wheels are standard fitment across the CR-V range.

At the rear, the vertical brake light and turn signal combination are a smart evolution of the model’s instantly recognisable taillight design, with purposeful LED lighting creating a new, evolved signature at the rear of the vehicle.

High-quality interior

High-quality textured materials feature throughout the all-new CR-Vs cabin with tactile switches and controls that are easy to understand and operate, creating a luxurious in car experience.

Upfront is a clean, uncluttered and low-set dashboard with a full-width air vent, centrally mounted 9.0-inch infotainment screen and large 10.2-inch digital dial set behind the steering wheel.

Black-hued colours are used across the dashboard and throughout the interior for a premium finish. Seats are finished in a black leather, with bold quilted accents for a unified premium feel.

The intuitive interior layout prioritises versatility, including the cup holder, storage trays and large capacity cubby box between the front seats. A sleek and ergonomic electric gear selector, with mode switches that are optimally positioned for ease of operation, ensure that the driver can easily access all the important functions while on the move.

Thanks to a longer wheelbase and wider stance, the CR-V offers spaciousness comparable to that of a D-segment SUV, not only providing rear seat passengers with best-in-class leg room but also creating more boot space and increased stability at high speeds.

Segment leading safety

Segment-leading levels of active safety have been achieved thanks to the addition of Honda Sensing 360, the company’s comprehensive omnidirectional safety and driver assist system, which removes blind spots around the vehicle and further contributes to collision avoidance thanks to the inclusion of a wide variety of driver assistance and safety features.

This includes eleven airbags in this latest model, including a new front centre airbag that prevents a collision between the driver and front passenger, and a new knee airbag for both the driver and front passenger.

Local availability

Exact local specification, powertrain details, model range and pricing will be made available when the all-new CR-V is launched on the 9th of February.
