Honda CR-V Facelift

Honda revised its CR-V model and will send it to sale in January 2010, with a new diesel engine and an automatic transmission for diesel models. Its well known look have been refreshed to incorporate a distinctive new front bumper and grille, a revised rear bumper and color coded bumpers on EX grades. A new audio console design has also been introduced, while improved sound deadening around the engine and cabin makes the CR-V an even quieter and more relaxing car to drive. This revised model will be built in Swindon where the British workers produce the SUV for over 60 countries. The vehiclel will be powered by a 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel engine capable of developing 150 PS and 350 Nm of torque. It can be paired with either manual transmission or the new 5-speed automatic gearbox that has been manufactured in-house by Honda. All engines in the CR-V line-up are designed to meet Euro 5 legislation. The equipment levels of the car continue to impress. The SE grades feature 17-inch alloys, air conditioning, power heated door mirrors and a lot more. EX grades will get an 8-way driver power seat and electric lumbar support, an alloy step garnish, HID Xenon headlights, full body colored bumpers, reverse tilt mirror and a lot more. Three new paint colors are available for 2010 and five other metallic ones too. In terms of safety, Honda offers the Adaptive Cruise Control, a radar-controlled cruise control function which maintains a set distance to the vehicle in front and Collision Mitigation Braking System. This last one predicts collisions and warns the driver before, applying braking and retracting the front seatbelts, if the situation becomes critical. The price for the new CR-V and full specifications were not revealed yet.
