New Honda CR-V on low rate finance

Four years servicing for £399

The new Honda CR-V is currently available on a 0% Hire Purchase agreement, this striking stylish 4x4 will most certainly get noticed and the refreshed design makes it even more desirable.

The new CR-V is available with four generously equipped trim levels S, SE, SR and EX. The entry-level S features 5-inch Intelligent Multi Info Display (i-MID), driver power lumbar support, idle stop, dual zone climate control, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, fabric interior, Hill Start Assist, steering wheel stereo controls, USB/iPod auxiliary input, one touch folding rear seats, plus a CD tuner and 4 speaker stereo, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Anti-lock braking system (ABD), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) and central locking. An impressive list for just entry level, the top of the range EX adds smart entry, leather interior, power tailgate, electric driver seat with memory function, panoramic glass roof and integrated satellite navigation.

The boot space in the new CR-V has been increased by 147 litres over the previous model, plenty of room for three big suitcases. This can be increased even more as the fold flat seats drop easily and when loading the tailgate closes automatically at the press of a button, so everything is easy even with your hands full.

Excellent fuel economy can be achieved in the new CR-V thanks to the ambient meter which changes colour to reflect your driving style when the ECON mode is on. When green is the colour you are driving extremely fuel efficiently, the yellow light means moderate acceleration/deceleration is being applied and the white says that aggressive acceleration/deceleration is being used so fuel will be eaten up very quickly.

4x4 of the year

The new CR-V was awarded the honour of ‘4x4 of the Year’ by Total 4x4 Magazine for 2012. Editor of the magazine Alan Kidd said “never before have there been so many likely candidates for the overall title. However, from the moment we started crawling around inside the CR-V, it was clear Honda had hit the jackpot. The quality of its interior is on a par with the best, and its flexibility is exceptional and that was before we actually drove it. Seldom has a new 4x4 put such a big tick in so many boxes. It takes an awful lot to impress us these days. The new CR-V didn’t just impress us it made our jaws drop.”
