All-new Honda CR-V Revealed
Honda revealed the next-generation of their flagship SUV, with options for a hybrid powertrain and seven seats, the all-new Honda CR-V.
At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Honda debuted a CR-V Hybrid prototype, now the Japanese manufacturer have revealed the production version of an all-new CR-V at the Geneva Motor Show. The new model offers refinements to the vehicles style, improvements to practicality and for the first time a hybrid powertrain option.
The exterior of the CR-V receives several subtle design tweaks including sharper bonnet lines, broader wheel arches and the latest fascia design including Honda’s new signature headlight graphic. The latest variant is also slightly larger than the existing model with a longer wheelbase and wider road presence. With a seven-seat option available for the first time with Honda stating that it will offer “exceptional leg room”.
Honda’s Intelligent Multi Mode Drive (i-MMD) hybrid powertrain is most notable however, combining a 2.0-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine with two electric motors. The system uses a single fixed-gear ratio instead of a conventional transmission to “create a direction connection between moving components and a smoother transfer of torque.”
