Honda’s next-generation CR-V SUV could be notably larger than the current model, according to reports out of the UK.

Speaking with Autocar, Honda UK’s Leon Brannan said the next CR-V would be both larger and offer more premium features.

Expected to arrive in 2017, a larger CR-V - reading between the lines of Mr Brannan's comments - would likely mean a standard seven-seat layout and standard all-wheel-drive, at least in the UK market.

The reason for the CR-V's size-boost is to put some additional distance between it and the smaller HR-V SUV.

Honda also believes standard AWD could attract buyers away from the Volvo XC60 and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

“CR-V is a massive pillar for us,” Mr Brannan said.

“I’m not sure that HR-V in the UK will ever become a four-wheel-drive car - most people in this segment will vote with their feet and buy two-wheel-drive. So if we can assume that HR-V will ever only be 2WD, then you’ve got to proposition [with CR-V].”

The next CR-V is expected to feature some of the kit introduced in the new HR-V model, including interior layout and an upgraded infotainment system.

In Australia, the HR-V fits into the small SUV class, according to the FCAI, while the CR-V is classed as a medium SUV. The HR-V outsold the CR-V last month by 198 units.
