Honda Unveils new CR-V that Keeps Sleepy Driver Awake
Honda has introduced to Nigeria its fifth generation CR-V, which appears to have undergone a complete change in virtually all departments, all aimed at giving its buyers/riders maximum comfort, safety and entertainment.
Built with a bold and sophisticated design, the 2018 Honda CR-V hopes to be a benchmark for the compact sport utility vehicle segment.
What many may find fascinating is the vehicle’s active safety and driver-assistance features of sensing/averting accidents and keeping a sleepy driver awake.
The CR-V has automatic high-beams, a rear cross-traffic alert, and a driver-attention monitor to prevent snoozing behind the wheel.
Coming with a 2.4 litre DOHC direct-injected i-VTEC engine with smooth shifting CVT, the all-new 2018 Honda CR-V is equipped with more premium interior finishing and larger cabin with best-in-class rear seat legroom.
The Lead, Sales Marketing Department, The Honda Place, Remi Adams, who presented the new vehicle to the Nigeria’s motoring journalists in Lagos last week, said the reengineered Honda CR-V would be competing with Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Tucson, Mazda CX-5 and Subaru Forester.
According to him, the fifth generation Honda CR-V was being released 23 years after the vehicle was first rolled out.
“The completely redesigned and reengineered 2018 CR-V, going on sale this March, boasts of bold new styling, a more premium interior, a host of new features and technologies aimed at maintaining the CR-V’s status as the outright benchmark in the highly popular compact SUV segment,” Honda said in a statement.
Some of the key new comfort and convenience features available on the 2018 Honda CR-V were given as power programmable tailgate, versatile centre console, dual-zone climate controls, Electric Parking Brake, Automatic Brake Hold, two fast-charge rear USB ports, and front passenger seat with four-way power adjustment and driver’s seat with 8-way power adjustment.
