The long-awaited Honda CR-V Diesel has landed in Australia, offering the best of CR-V’s packaging and excellent fuel economy. Honda Australia’s Stephen Collins said: “The arrival of this new diesel engine to our CR-V line-up is great news for our customers. The CR-V already has a large and loyal fan base as our recent sales success shows.”

“Since the fourth-generation CR-V arrived in November of 2012, we have sold just over 14,000 units. We are confident that the addition of the diesel variant will further strengthen the CR-V’s offering in the medium SUV segment. This new diesel variant completes the CR-V offering, which includes a choice of two and four-wheel drive, manual and automatic transmissions as well as the option of our Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) in the petrol 4WD VTi-L,” Mr. Collins said.

The CR-V models DTi-S and DTi-L feature a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine delivering 110kW of power @ 4000rpm and 350 Nm of torque @ 2000-2750 rpm.

New to the diesel is Honda’s Real Time 4WD with Intelligent Control System, for extra grip on uneven or slippery surfaces. It also features Hill Descent Control (automatic only) that works in tandem with Vehicle Stability Assist to provide even more security and connection with the road.

The DTi-S features Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control, Anti-lock brakes (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Trailer Stability Assist (TSA), tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension and Hill Start Assist with Transmission Shift Lock (automatic transmission only).

One of the CR-V Diesel’s strongest features is the outstanding fuel economy. The manual DTi-S has a combined cycle of 5.8 litres/100 kilometres and the DTi-L has a combined cycle of 6.9 litres/100km.

Pricing starts from $38,500.
