2010 CR-V: Honda's leading Crossover to arrive in February
Available initially in the U.S. and in Japan, the new CR-V is set to reach Philippine shores by February 2010. Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), always at the forefront of introducing the latest globally available vehicles to the local market, officially announces the forthcoming arrival of the refreshed CR-V as the new year draws near. Exuding sleek sophistication, solid stance and refined functionality, the 2010 CR-V puts up a bold statement that is sure to complement the demands of urban living. It simply lets you live a crossover lifestyle for all your life's adventures.
The CR-V is uniquely designed for those who appreciate the finer things in life. It now comes with new front grille, bumper and alloy wheel designs to bring out a tougher and more distinct look. Its revitalized front end styling balances smoothly with the CR-V's clean lines and premium finish.
Beyond good looks, the CR-V is a vehicle of substance. Under its hood lies the same i-VTEC engine that cleverly combines powerful performance with fuel economy. It comes in 2.4 liter and 2.0 liter variants which produces maximum power of 170ps and 150ps, respectively. As per U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA), the 2010 CR-V with 2.4 liter engine has an estimated fuel efficiency rating of 27 miles per gallon (11.48 km/li) under highway condition and 21 miles per gallon (8.93 km/li) under city driving condition. More than good fuel efficiency, the CR-V is also engineered to meet the stringent EURO 4 emission standard level.
The CR-V has been a breakthrough model since the introduction of the first generation model in 1997, consistently leading its class to higher levels. Successfully introducing the crossover concept with the launch of the third generation model in 2007, the CR-V provides sedan-like comfort and performance, ample SUV space and exquisite design. With the market's warm appreciation of the CR-V's premium quality and styling, the third-generation CR-V leads the compact SUV category with cumulative sales of 8,945 units. Honda's undying passion to present new values to the market brings forth further improvement on the CR-V's suspension system and NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) levels for better ride and passenger comfort.
