Honda gives the CR-V a facelift for 2015

Honda has unveiled a refreshed CR-V at the Paris Motor Show.

The compact SUV, which continues to be built in Swindon, gets redesigned bumpers and headlights plus a rather fussy new grille. At the rear, the tailgate has been altered and the light clusters now use LEDs.

To go with the styling update there’s a change in the engine line-up. Replacing the old 2.2 i-DTEC diesel is a 1.6 litre unit, which is going to be available with all-wheel drive only.

Despite the drop in capacity, an output of 157 bhp (117 kW / 160 PS) is actually 9 bhp (7 kW / 10 PS) up on its predecessor and peak torque remains the same at 350 Nm (258 lb/ft). Buyers will have a choice of six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmissions.
