The fourth generation of Honda's compact crossover will be offered with three powerplants, including a 2.
0-liter i-VTEC petrol and a 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel that are carried over from the previous model, plus a brand-new 1.6-liter turbo diesel.
For the first time in Europe, the CR-V will be available with front-wheel drive only versions in conjunction with the 2.0-liter petrol and 1.6-liter turbo diesel engines.
The power output of the updated 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline unit has grown from 148hp (150PS) to 153hp (155PS) while peak torque is up by 2Nm to 192Nm (142 lb-ft).
Honda says that despite the increased performance, CO2 emissions have fallen from 192g/km to 174g/km for the 4x4 manual version, and from 195g/km to 176g/km for the 4x4 automatic, while the new two-wheel drive model drops to 170g/km.
The 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel engine continues to produce 148hp (150PS) and 350Nm (258 lb-ft), but the CO2 emissions fall from 171g/km to 153g/km (10%) for the manual gearbox model, and from 195g/km to 175g/km for models fitted with the five-speed automatic transmission.
Honda's new 1.6-liter turbo diesel that is rated at 118HP (120PS) at 4,000 rpm and 300Nm (221.3 lb-ft) at 2,000 rpm, will become available next year.
