Honda launches 4th-Gen CR-V

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. launched the all-new CR-V on April 23, 2012 at 1Esplanade, Pasay City.

Dubbed as the Smart Urban Vehicle, the fourth generation CR-V launch further strengthens Honda’s return to the Philippine automotive market, following the launches of the all-new City in January, and the all-new Civic together with the Jazz Special Edition in February.

The all-new CR-V features a prominent front facia with an integrated grille and headlights design, elegant C-pillar window kink, upscale aluminum wheel design, projector-type headlights and distinctive tail lights. Like the recently launched Honda Civic, both the 2.0 LX A/T (2WD) and the 2.4 EX A/T (4WD) variants of the all-new CR-V are equipped with the Eco Assist system, which consists of the ECON mode and Eco coaching ambient light. All units of the 4th generation CR-V are also equipped with the One-Pull Fold-Down Rear Seats for additional cargo space, as well as Cruise Control for improved driving convenience.

Like the all-new Honda Civic, the top-of-the-line 2.4 EX variant is equipped with the Intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID), which features a 5-inch LCD display that shows various information for the driver, with controls conveniently located in the steering wheel. This variant is also equipped with a rear camera that automatically activates when the shift lever is put on reverse, with the image shown on the i-MID. Other features also only available in the 2.4 EX variant are the Sunroof, Side Mirror-Mounted LED Turn Lights, as well as a Hands-Free telephone (HFT) function that allows the driver to place or receive calls with a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone.
