After years of sitting as a leader in sales in the compact crossover class and not doing much to keep this position, Honda eventually completely redesigned the CR-V for 2017. The latest version will start at the end of 2016 in A very competitive segment. As it will still be relatively new, we anticipate that the 2018 Honda CRV will be largely a carry forward.
The new 2018 Honda CRV style heads in an entirely new direction with an aggressive attitude, with fine and clear design elements, aggressive styled headlights surrounded by a wing-shaped DRL LED matrix on all categories with Broad and muscular wings. The long bonnet, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and dual exhaust give the new CR-V a stronger position and greater sporting presence.
The new 2018 Honda CRV wind-blown frontal appearance includes exclusive Honda LED headlights, new 18 “alloy wheels and narrower A-pillars for added visibility. The added convenience is an electric tailgate ‘Open and close the tailgate with the remote control or simply touch the tailgate handle.
These changes include a more spacious cabin with a higher feel as well as maintaining its larger rear legroom and wider and more versatile cargo space with power liftgate. Enhanced connectivity with Honda’s Advanced Display Audio, 7 “touchscreen, integrated navigation and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, for the first time in New Zealand, a seven-seater Free.
Honda 2018 Honda CRV is based on the Civic. It is now longer and wider than the previous generation. Because it is based on the Civic, we can expect similar engine options. We can expect that the basic models have a Honda Turbo 1.5 L to push 174 HP. The Civic can quickly use a 6-speed manual, but the car will be the only way in the CRV. In addition, the focus is on low-consumption torque due to the weight of the CRV.
Honda will also offer a hybrid option. The 2018 Honda CRV Hybrid will feature two engines to drive it as well. There is currently a similar system in the Accord, which is capable of making 49/47 MPG. Honda CRV 2018 should adopt this new technology.
