Carmakers use to offer certain engine and equipment choices according to each market, that’s why we often see noteworthy differences between models offered in the States and their European counterparts, for example.
This time, we get to know more about the Euro-spec Honda CR-V facelift, a model that, unsurprisingly, comes with a diesel engine.
To be more precise, we talk about a 1.6-liter diesel powerplant delivering 160 horses and 350 Nm of torque.
This engine is offered with the better-equipped four-wheel drive variants and is linked to a new 9-speed automatic gearbox while the front-wheel drive model packs the same 1.6-liter but with 120 hp and a six-speed manual transmission.
Inside, the 2015 Honda CR-V comes with a special Honda Connect infotainment system, rear-view parking camera, Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation. New systems such as the Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses a camera and a radar to “scan” the road, is also present on the new model.
