Honda has released full details on the CR-V hybrid. The environment-friendly version of the crossover will hit the dealerships in the UK starting February 2019, with prices ranging between £29,105 for a 2WD S trim and £37,255 for an AWD EX.
Available with five seats only in eCVT with a choice of two and all-wheel drive, the hybrid version of the CR-V follows the standard Honda trim nomenclature from the entry level S to SE, SR and finishing at the top of the range EX. As with the petrol version, standard across all trims is Honda SENSING – a suite of safety features which includes collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition.
SE trim adds parking sensors and a rear view camera, while the SR and EX will also feature blind spot warning and cross traffic monitoring, while low speed following on the cruise control is available across all variants.
The SR trim also adds smart entry and start, leather interior and active cornering lights; while EX further includes a heated steering wheel, head up display, hands free access power tailgate, heated rear seats and panoramic glass sunroof. “The CR-V hybrid is the first step in achieving our objective of electrified powertrains accounting for two-thirds of our European sales by 2025,” commented Phil Webb, Head of Car at Honda UK.
