There is now an increasing demand for low cost motoring and two wheel diesel SUV’s are top of the list in popularity which means the new Honda CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC is going to be a huge success. Prices for this British build SUV have just been released and the new variant starts at just £22,800.
There are savings all round if you choose to pick this new SUV, it is powered by the 1.6 i-DTEC engine which returns an impressive 62.8mpg which means it has the potential to cover up to eight hundred miles on one tank of fuel.

There are three trim levels offered which are all generously equipped. The entry level ‘S’ is priced from £22,800 and features DAB Radio, dual zone climate control air conditioning, cruise control, electric adjustable and heated door mirrors, USB connectivity, steering wheel remote audio controls, 5-inch Intelligent Multi Info Display (i-MID), 17” alloy wheels as well as all the driver safety aids such as ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), driver seat power lumber support and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA).

Two wheel drive only

It offers a maximum power output of 120 PS at 4,000rpm while maximum torque is 300 Nm at 2,000 rpm.
