Honda Australia has lifted the lid on pricing and specifications for its crucially important new CR-V medium SUV, adding a turbocharged petrol engine and seven-seat option to the range for the first time.

The all-new CR-V now features a larger body, and the choice of front or all-wheel drive variants and although pricing has crept up slightly on entry-level models, more solid standard equipment lists help offset the difference.

The four-model CR-V range opens from $30,690 plus on-road costs and includes standard keyless entry and start, dual-zone climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, active noise cancellation, driver attention monitoring and a reversing camera.

All CR-V grades are powered by a new 1.5-litre turbocharged VTEC engine with 140kW of power and 240Nm of torque, making it more powerful than the related engine as used in the Civic range. A CVT automatic is the only transmission available.

“Our customers consistently tell us what a joy their CR-Vs are to live with and the fifth generation builds on this reputation with new levels of style, versatility, technology and value,” Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins said.

“The all-new CR-V is bolder and more stylish than ever, and in true Honda fashion it nails the brief for versatility with more interior space plus a new seven seat option.”

The VTi grade is available only with front-wheel drive, while the mid-grade VTi-S adds the option of all-wheel drive, the VTi-L reverts back to two-wheel drive only but comes standard with seven seat while the top-spec VTi-LX comes with all wheel-drive only and drops back to five seats.

The VTi-S also adds a powered tailgate, satellite navigation, front and rear park sensors, leather-trimmed steering wheel, power-folding mirrors, a LaneWatch blind spot camera activated with the left-hand indicator, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Moving up to the VTi-L brings leather appointed seat trim, electrically adjustable heated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, and a panoramic sunroof.

All models also feature tyre pressure monitoring, a full-sized spare wheel, six airbags (including third-row curtain airbags on VTi-L), electronic stability control with trailer stability assist, hill start assist, and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution.
