Honda Launches the New 2015 CRV
In 1996 Honda introduced the first CRV to NZ. Nearly 20 years later, the 2015 CRV has highly evolved with a bold new look, loads of added luxury, enhanced design detail, new 18” Alloys and the latest driver technology.
The new 2015 CRV is available in CRV 2WD S & CRV 2WD Sport with a 2L SOHC i-VTEC Engine and the CRV 4WD Sport and Sport NT, both with a 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC Engine. A Sport+ Exterior Kit is available for customers who want to be seen differently.
Integrated DRLs, Honda’s LaneWatch Camera and Emergency Stop Signal are standard across the 2015 range. The CRV 4WD Sport NT has added Advanced Active Safety Tech including Lane Departure Warning System, Lane Keep Assist, Collision Mitigation Braking System and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The new sporty exterior design appears larger and more masculine on the road. The optional Sport+ Exterior Kit creates an even more assertive stance. Internally the new CRV exudes luxury with new seating, leather design, chrome detailing and soft touch materials throughout.
Specification levels on the Sports models offer every driving comfort with Smart Keyless Entry, Push Button Start, Leather Interior, Sunroof, Dual Climate Air Conditioning, Power Front Seats, Driver’s Memory Seat, larger TouchScreen, Bluetooth, Multi-Angle Reverse Camera, Dual Screen Navigation, Front and Rear Parking Sensors.
The luxury drive continues with One-touch Indicators, Paddle Shift, Intelligent Auto Wipers and Auto Headlights, Intelligent Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror, Privacy Glass and a Parking Reverse Tilt Door Mirror.
To further improve the ride and handling characteristics, upgrades have been made to the chassis. These include suspension tuning refinements, a modified steering ratio, larger wheel width and improved brakes.
Enhancements have been made to the body to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. To absorb sound and insulate the cabin further, the coverage and thickness of sound-absorbing material has increased, including full-coverage of sound insulating carpet. Door sealing has also improved to reduce noise intrusion. These changes have resulted in a noticeable improvement in cruising quietness.
The 2015 CRV is available in eight colours including a new Copper Sunset Pearl and Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic offering customers some stand out colours and more choice.
