The all new 2018 Honda CR-V with Premium Design, Versatility & a & Fun-to-Drive Persona
The all new, completely re-designed and re-engineered 2018 Honda CR-V is the fifth generation of Honda’s best-selling SUV, goes on sale today from $37,900+ORC.
 
The 2018 CR-V boasts bold and sophisticated new styling, a more spacious and versatile premium quality interior, the model’s first ever turbocharged engine, and a host of new features and technologies for improved connectivity, comfort and convenience.
 
Based on an all new platform architecture, the new CR-V targets the highest levels of quality and driving refinement in its class, including cabin quietness, steering precision, ride comfort and body control, all designed to imbue the CR-V with a polished, fun-to-drive persona. 
 
Bold and Sophisticated New Design
The new CR-V styling heads in a fresh new direction with an aggressive attitude, thanks to crisp and sharp front end design elements, aggressive stylised headlights surrounded by a wing shaped LED DRL array on all grades with wide, muscular fenders. The long hood, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and dual exhausts give the new CR-V a stronger stance and more athletic presence.
 
The CR-V’s new windswept front end appearance includes signature Honda LED Headlights, a Honda first Active Shutter Grille that lowers aerodynamic drag, new 18” Alloy wheels and narrower A-pillars for improved visibility. Adding convenience is an Electric Power Tailgate, which allows opening and closing the tailgate the remote or simple touching the rear tailgate handle.
 
The new exterior design is complimented by the new CR-V platform's best in class space efficiency. Its wider stance and longer wheelbase significantly benefit interior space – total interior volume is up, rear seat legroom is increased by 9cm, and total cargo length with the second row seats folded flat is up versus over the previous model. Converting from passenger to cargo hauling is made easier than ever with the new one motion drop down 60/40 split rear seat to a totally flat floor for ease of loading.
 
New Powertrain and Chassis Technology
The 2018 CR-V will feature CR-V’s first ever turbocharged engine, a more powerful and fuel-efficient 1.5-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder powerplant rated at 140kw of power with 240 Nm of Torque it delivers incredibly refined and responsive performance across the engine’s full driving range.
 
The engines will be mated to a smooth shifting and sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic. The new more powerful turbo engine, transmission and aerodynamic body combine to improve fuel economy to an impressive 7.3L/100kms for the 2WD models & 7.4L/100kms for AWD models.
 
The all new body and chassis design in the new CR-V provides more agile and confident handling, greater refinement, additional ground clearance and superior overall versatility. Its front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension utilise specially tuned low friction dampers, with both 2WD and AWD models including tubular front and solid rear stabiliser bars that promote quick turn-in and flatter cornering. Dual-pinion, variable ratio Electric Power Steering (EPS) also contributes to the CR-V’s direct and satisfying steering feel.
 
All wheel drive models feature an upgraded Real Time AWD System with a significant increase in maximum rear wheel torque delivery and new electronic control allowing step less control in everyday driving conditions and further improved all weather confidence and control. 
 
More Premium, Spacious and Technologically Advanced Interior
The 2018 CR-V also raises the bar for interior refinement, utility and premium features in the medium SUV class. The more spacious cabin, with best in class interior space and rear legroom, features upgraded materials throughout, including a new soft touch instrument panel and more intricately stitched new seat design. A color TFT driver information interface (DII) center metre display adds to the modern new design aesthetic.
 
The CR-V offers the latest in vehicle connectivity and audio performance with a new generation of advanced technologies. Available features include a 7 inch touchscreen featuring Advanced Display Audio interface with Android operating system as well as a built in Garmin Navigation App, with all the flexibility of an App, without the need to connect a smartphone.
 
The CR-V’s Advanced Display Audio System is compatible with the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ platforms, giving customers seamless integration of key smartphone features and functions, including smartphone powered GPS navigation and voice controlled search capabilities.
 
Some of the key new comfort and convenience features available on the 2018 CR-V include dual-zone climate controls, an Electric Parking Brake (EPB), rear USB charging ports, and in the CR-V Sport models feature Leather Seats with driver’s seat with 8-way power adjustment and 4-way power lumbar support and heated front seats.
 
Advanced Safety and Driver Assistive Technology
Utilising Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, the 2018 CR-V targets the highest available collision safety ratings.
 
The 2018 CR-V AWD Sport Sensing includes the Honda SensingÔ suite of advanced safety and driver assistive technologies which includes Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF), Auto High-Beam Support (HSS) and the new Driver Attention Monitor, added to Honda’s Collision Mitigation Braking (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian sensing capability, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) and LaneWatch Camera System.
