Diesel variant to join 2014 Honda CR-V range


Honda has added a diesel variant to the Honda CR-V range, which will go on sale in January 2014.

“We will add a diesel to our CR-V range in January 2014,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins. “We know how much our customers are looking forward to this addition to our line-up and they will also be happy to know it retains the petrol variant’s huge interior space, creature-comforts and of course many of Honda’s important active and passive safety features.

“This fourth-generation model has been a strong, consistent performer since it was first launched in December 2012 and we expect to see a boost in sales with a diesel option. This year, we’ve sold just shy of 10,000 units, making the CR-V second only to the much-loved Civic range,” Mr. Collins said.


The new variant will be offered in four-wheel drive form only. It features a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine delivering 110 kW of power and 350 Nm of torque. Available with in either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission, the diesel CR-V averages 5.8 litres per 100 kilometres in fuel consumption and 151g/km CO2 (manual transmission).

In addition, the diesel variant features Honda’s Real Time Four-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System for extra grip on uneven or slippery surfaces and Hill Descent Control that works in tandem with Vehicle Stability Assist to improve offroad ability.
