Honda CR-V 2013

Expected in : February 2013 Year
Expected Price : 30 Lakhs - 30.5 Lakhs


In July 2011, a photo of the Honda CR-V concept was released. The company announced that the fourth-generation CR-V will be sold in the United States by the end of 2011 and in Europe in 2012. Honda said, "The new CR-V Concept embraces a distinctive and bold styling direction. Compared to the previous generation, the concept model takes on a more aggressive stance with deeper sculpting of the body lines and a bolder front fascia. The lower front bumper wraps smartly upward to convey SUV capability, while the overall lower front bumper design now integrates more smoothly into the fascia for improved aerodynamics.The production 2012 CR-V was debuted at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and it is powered with a 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline-four engine that puts out 185 hp and 163 pound-feet (220Nm ) of torque at 4,400 rpm along with an all-new Real-Time all-wheel-drive (AWD) with intelligent control system. Front-wheel-drive CR-Vs now get 23 US (10 L/100 km; 28 imp) in the city and 31 US (7.6 L/100 km; 37 imp) on the highway, while models with the optional full-time all-wheel-drive are rated at 22 US (11 L/100 km; 26 imp) and 30 US (7.8 L/100 km; 36 imp), respectively. The CR-V went on sale in the U.S. on December 15, 2011.
Both the new Civic for Europe and the Accord in America are performing better than their predecessors. The first of the long-awaited Earth Dreams Technology engines have appeared and Takanubo Ito, Honda chief executive since 2009, has announced a five-year product plan that includes three types of hybrid, a mini SUV, and a Type R hot hatch version of the latest Civic. Amongst all this is a new fourth-generation of the CR-V, Honda's most consistently successful product in Europe and several other territories.
The original CR-V launched in Japan in 2005 might have been the sister of the Land Rover Free lander but wasn't, because Land Rover engineers were not keen to share their technology with their associates at Honda, and then the Rover Group was taken over by BMW. As competitors, these two vehicles have vied for leadership in the UK's 'soft-roader' compact SUV market for many years.
But while the Free lander continues to boast about its (considerable) off-road capabilities, Honda has never claimed that the CR-V is much more than a high-riding family car. I have attended the press launch of several CR-Vs and don't recall once being encouraged to drive off the beaten track. As if to reinforce this point, the latest model was launched in southern Germany, a country where off-road driving is positively discouraged.
It is surprising, then, that while there has been a two-wheel drive Free lander for a couple of years, only now is the CR-V available with front-wheel drive only. All of the previous generations have had Honda's unique hydraulic 'dual-pump' system to distribute power to the rear wheels when the front ones start to slip. For the European and US versions of the new CR-V, the dual-pump is replaced by a wet clutch pack at the rear differential which is activated electronically and gives faster response, weighs less, reduces internal friction, and works in concert with other electronic systems including VSA stability control and HDC hill-descent braking.
The new CR-V is actually 5mm shorter than its predecessor but has notably more room inside and the largest cargo volume in its class. The one-step fold-flat system for the rear seats - you just pull a tab for them to spring forward and fold down - is nothing short of brilliant. Electric closing for the substantial tailgate is standard.On the mechanical front, the 2012 CR-V is pretty traditional. The updated 2.4-litre in-line-four engine is smooth and responsive, and Honda seems to have taken a “good enough” approach, opting for port fuel-injection and a five-speed gearbox, where much of the competition has migrated to direct-injection and six-, seven- and even eight-speed transmissions.
At first glance, the all-new CR-V is familiar and not wildly impressive. Delve deeper though, and you soon realize that this car scores very strongly on all parameters. It’s very comfortable and spacious, the performance is strong, the build quality and fit and finish are good, and it is likely to be very reliable. The only thing missing, of course, is a diesel engine, which, as ever, is in the pipeline but not expected immediately. And this will limit its appeal.As on the car, chassis stiffness is very impressive. This means there’s relatively little roll, directional stability is very good and the suspension is pretty pliant and comfortable. What somewhat kills the fun-to-drive factor, however, is the new electric steering system.
