A superior drive
Enjoy the freedom to explore.
We’ve introduced even more bright ideas and pioneering technologies into the CR-V – that all work together to improve the car’s performance and increase efficiency. Every CR-V model in the range provides an unforgettable driving experience.
The CR-V can tackle some of the trickiest road conditions.
Normal driving conditions and two wheel drive in full swing.
We’ve thought carefully about how you use your 4WD. Our innovative 4WD system boasts better fuel economy as it only fully engages when wheel speed sensors detect loss of traction. That way you get maximum grip when you need it, without wasting unnecessary fuel when you don’t.
Optimum traction, stability and maneuverability are built into the whole CR-V range. That's because they feature as standard in our innovative Vehicle Stability Assist system (VSA), which includes several advanced driving systems to make the road that little bit safer.
Vehicle Stability Assist system (VSA) aids traction, stability and maneuverability.
On rougher terrain four wheel drive kicks into action.
Power that doesn’t cost the earth
Our new 1.6 i-DTEC engine is not only more powerful, but it’s more efficient – and features our latest Earth Dreams technology.
The new 1.6 i-DTEC engine is available on the four wheel drive CR-V, with 160PS and 350/Nm of torque and CO2 as low as 129g/km for the manual transmission and 134g/km for the automatic transmission. That’s more power and torque for you when you need it – without compromising on economy.
The engine of the future
You don't have to sacrifice power for economy.
Our aim is to celebrate the joy of driving while protecting the planet. We call it Earth Dreams. Combining optimum economy with a dynamic driving experience, it really is the engine of the future.
What drives you?
Choose a 2WD or 4WD - then make it yours
Thanks to some clever fuel-saving technologies, the two-wheel drive version of the CR-V delivers 300/Nm of torque and CO2 emissions of just 119g/km*. It’s available with a six-speed manual transmission.
If you’re a driver who chalks up plenty of longer journeys, look to the i-DTEC diesel engine for greater cruising economy. The 4WD’s commanding grip comes in either 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic options.

Combined fuel consumption*
||120 CV @ 4000 pm||4.4 l/100km||115-119 g/km|
||155 CV @ 6500 rpm||7.2 l/100km||168 g/km|
||160 CV @ 4000rpm||4.9-5.1 l/100km||129-133 g/km|
||160 CV @ 4000rpm||5.1-5.3 l/100km||134-139 g/km|
||155 CV @ 6500rpm||7.4-7.6 l/100km||173-177 g/km|
||155 CV @ 6500rpm||7.5-7.7 l/100km||175-179 g/km|
The right balance of power
Power plus economy equals perfect performance.
New 9-speed transmission
We’ve also introduced the choice of a new 9-speed automatic transmission for our advanced 1.6-litre diesel. Nine gears mean the right ratio is always available; making acceleration and deceleration smoother, maximising engine responsiveness and economy and reducing emissions.
Our 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engines give you a finely tuned balance of performance and efficiency. Available with 120PS on the 2WD version and 160PS when coupled with 4WD, they offer a lighter feel and more agile drive than other diesels, delivering 350/Nm of torque and CO2 emissions as low as 115g/km.
The 155PS 2.0 i-VTEC petrol engine features Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control for optimised output at high engine rpm, and fuel efficiency at lower rpm. It’s available as a 5-speed automatic with 4WD, or 6-speed manual transmission in a choice of 2WD or 4WD powertrains.
See your savings
Eco Assist helps you drive more efficiently.
The Econ button modifies the CR-V’s system to offer excellent fuel economy – and some of the lowest CO2 emissions you’ll find (starting from just 119 g/km). The CR-V’s dashboard also shows you when you’re driving economically – changing from blue to green – so over time you’ll learn how to drive in more fuel-efficient way – and save at the pumps.
This pack includes all the safety features of the Advanced Driver Assistance System Pack; along with Collision Mitigation Braking System, intelligent-Adaptive Cruise Control and our Lane Keeping Assist System.
Honda SENSING can help you sense things you might miss when you’re driving – not only vehicles, but pedestrians as well. It helps you avoid an accident by giving you visual and audible warnings, and if necessary, applying automatic braking.
Keeping a safe distance with CMBS
One of the technologies that comes with the Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) package is the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), which is designed to keep you a safe distance from everything else on the road. CMBS uses a radar transmitter to detect when a collision is about to happen, and works with your seatbelt - giving you audio and visual warnings to take action.
Intelligent-Adaptive Cruise Control
This makes motorway driving safer by allowing you to set both speed and distance from the car in front, constantly monitoring and adjusting your speed as necessary. It not only monitors vehicles in front of your car, but also those in neighbouring lanes – and even predicts when a vehicle will cut in front of you up to five seconds before it occurs.
Lane Keeping Assist System
This innovative system uses a camera mounted behind the rear view mirror, to sense line markings on the road. LKAS calculates the amount of steering torque required to help you keep the vehicle on track and is supported by an audible warning if you drift off course.
The most important thing about a Honda? The people inside it. And our latest CR-V has taken your safety to even more advanced standards.
Features include City-Brake Active System, standard in Comfort grade, which monitors the traffic in front of your car and warns of a forward collision, giving you time to take action. Then there’s our Lane Departure Warning alarm, which tells you if you are straying from your lane. And keeping you safer still is the clever Forward Collision Warning that monitors the area around your car to help you avoid collisions.
The safest CR-V yet
Beyond the stylish design there's complex safety engineering at work in the CR-V, which has earned it its first Euro NCAP five-star rating.
A whiplash mitigation system absorbs some of the impact to occupants during a collision, and helps to minimise the severity of whiplash injury.
The front airbags use a two-stage inflator allowing airbag deployment to vary according to the severity of impact. Side curtain airbags protect the driver and passengers in the case of side-on collisions.
Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering (MA-EPS)
A system that detects instability in slippery conditions both during cornering and under braking, and automatically prompts the driver to steer in the correct direction.
The Emergency Stop System (ESS)
This automatically activates the brake and hazard warning lights when it detects a stopping emergency, warning vehicles following that the car is braking abruptly.
Keeping Pedestrians safe too
The construction of the front of the new CR-V is designed to help absorb energy in the event of a collision with a pedestrian.
