New 2018 Honda CR-V prices and specs revealed

The all-new Honda CR-V SUV will cost from almost £26,000 when it goes on sale in the UK in early September

Honda has released full pricing and specification details for its new CR-V crossover. Prices for the SEAT Ateca rival will start from £25,995 when it goes on sale in early September.

That price buys the entry-level S trim, which comes with cruise control, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist as standard.

There are another three trim levels above: SE, SR and EX. The SR adds leather seats, blind spot warning and cross traffic monitoring, while the top-spec EX gets a heated steering wheel and rear seats, a head-up display, an electric tailgate and a panoramic sunroof. Like-for-like, the SE adds £900 to the price of the S, the SR costs £2,480 more than the SE, and the EX adds £2,710.

There’s three powertrains to choose from, all based on the same 1.5-litre turbo petrol. A 170bhp unit comes with a manual gearbox, which is available with front-wheel drive in S and SE models, and four-wheel drive in SE, SR and EX models. The higher three trim levels are also offered with a 188bhp unit paired with a CVT gearbox. A four-wheel drive, manual SE costs from £28,955, while the most expensive model in the range is the 188bhp CVT in EX trim, which costs £36,455.

Buyers can also choose a seven-seat variant. This costs £1,700 more than the equivalent five seater, and is offered both as a manual and an auto in SE and SR trims.

Honda is promising competitive finance offers for the new CR-V. Expect to pay £279 per month on a three-year, 10,000-mile deal for a manual all-wheel drive model in SR trim.

The CR-V has also been afforded a hybrid engine option for the first time. Honda calls the new system Intelligent Multi Mode Drive (i-MMD), and it comprises a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and two electric motors.

Rather than feed its power via a conventional gearbox, the i-MMD system makes use of a compact single fixed gear ratio in a bid to reduce cost, weight and complexity.

As well as the hybrid system, the 1.5 VTEC turbo petrol engine from the Civic will be available. It can be paired with a six-speed manual gearbox or the option of a CVT automatic transmission. Both versions of the SUV are front-wheel drive as standard, but customers will be able to spec the CR-V with four-wheel drive as an option.

The cabin also features a lot of technology and design from the latest Civic. A centrally mounted seven-inch display sits above simplified controls. Honda also says that because the wheelbase has been stretched, the new CR-V is now more practical than before, while the optional third row of seats is hidden beneath the boot floor.
