2018 Nissan X-Trail and 2018 Honda CR-V
2018 Honda CR-V
The new generation Honda CR-V was displayed during testing on European roads. In model 2018, nissan will struggle with the leading models of the market like X-Trail. The new CR-V was previously displayed in the United States. The last photograph shows a similar camouflage paint and coating on the rear and front bumpers.
Large exhausts indicate that the CR-V is approaching the production stage. Honda’s largest European SUV will surely be bigger than before. The fifth-generation CR-V will be built on a new platform and come with new engines. The new model will offer a more luxurious experience. The Jazz-based HR-V will also reinforce Honda’s SUV lineup, while the Japanese manufacturer will place the third seat in the larger CR-V for the first time.
This means that the brand and model will win new competitors such as the Nissan X-Trail, Land Rover Discovery Sport and Kia Sorento.
The CR-V will share the same chassis with the new Civic hatchback that will arrive in February. The new SUV’s axle clearance can be increased by 80 mm, while the overall length is expected to increase by 50 mm. This means that the size will approach the X-Trail. The CR-V was North America’s best-selling SUV model last year. This area sold 345 thousand units. Honda expects to update its appeal in the UK, where a light exterior façade sells between 15,000 and 20,000 units annually.
The test instruments displayed in the USA and Europe have the front panel in the form of signature of the mark, and the front blind that integrates with the headlights continues the Honda family DNA. This DNA is the most narrow, but the long LED is obvious in the far field. As you can see from the photographs, the rear part is dominated by L-shaped lamps that expand towards the boot lid.
The changes will also be visible in the engine options. The Honda Civic has approved the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder and 1.5-i-VTEC turbo engines, as well as the updated 1.6-liter diesel engine. The new CR-V is expected to benefit from two major motors. It is likely that a version of the 2.0-liter petrol engine with Honda’s newest technology will also be on the model. If the plug-in is related to a hybrid version, there is no information at this time but this version is also possible if the increasingly stringent emission limits are considered.
The four-wheel drive system and efficient nine-stage automatic transmission will continue to be available as an option. Standard models will be front-wheel drive and six-speed manual transmission.
Technology and quality improvements are also on the agenda. As of 2017, Honda has set a target to sell six million cars a year, but new CEO Takahiro Hachigo has braked this goal to focus on boosting quality. The new CR-V is expected to feature a modern multimedia system that offers luxurious materials and extra sound isolation, as well as smartphone integration applications.
The new Honda will be produced in Japan as well as the HR-V. In the US at the end of 2017 will go to the market. He will arrive in England next year.
