The next generation Honda CR-V has just been revealed and if you’re a fan of large SUV’s, keep on reading because we recon you’re going to love it.
Not only was the vehicle given a makeover but it also grew in size, becoming Honda’s largest European SUV in the process.
Scheduled to go on sale in 2018, the fifth generation CR-V is shaping up to be the best one yet.
Although the vehicle is still some time away, prototypes have been spotted, testing in the US. Heavily-disguised, all that is apparent at the moment is that the vehicle is much bigger compared to its predecessor.
Reportedly, Honda is going after the Land Rover Discovery Sport, which is quite popular in Europe. It’s bigger than the current CR-V, which some are suggesting is the reason behind the brand’s move.
We don’t know too much about the vehicle at the moment, however what we do know is that it will share its chassis with the upcoming new Civic hatch.
Although the Honda CR-V is extremely popular in America, with 345,000 units sold last year alone, the European sales have never quite reached the same level.
Honda is hoping that by increasing the size of its SUV and giving it a new, slightly modified, look it’s going to make it more appealing to European customers.
SUV’s are in very high demand at the moment, so it’s no surprise that more carmakers are choosing to explore the market.
A great number of new SUV’s are scheduled to arrive in the near future, making it a very exciting time for the automotive industry.
Although, we can’t predict what the future will hold, we’re very much excited to see what Honda will bring to the table. The new CR-V will have to be a solid car if it wants to compete with the other SUV’s on the market so Honda will truly have to put a lot of thought into the car.
How do you feel about the new Honda CR-V? Are you excited for it or are there any other SUV’s currently on the market, or just about, that you are more looking forwards to seeing? Let us know what you think.
