The improvements range from a bolder exterior styling package to enhanced levels of standard equipment, while the model line-up has been adapted to reflect customer preference.

Having a long history of success in South Africa and with customer satisfaction being another hallmark of the Honda CR-V success story, 87% of current CR-V owners have confirmed their intention to purchase another Honda.

While the silhouette of the Honda CR-V remains unchanged, significant changes to the front and the rear of the compact SUV have created a bolder, more progressive appearance.

Most notable is the all-new grille, which features a larger, more aggressive black-meshed lower aperture, together with chrome detailing and a bold, gloss black horizontal spar.

Style and functionality are at the core of the CR-V’s redesigned interior, which features a brand new seven-inch touchscreen display as the interface for the vehicle’s infotainment system on all models – except the entry-level Comfort.

However, Bluetooth-based connectivity is standard across the entire range. The 2015 Honda CR-V range offers a comprehensive array of safety and security features. Standard across all models are ABS anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Emergency Brake Assist.

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), emergency stop light system, front and rear fog lamps and LED daytime running lights are also standard, while the automatic transmission models also gain Hill Start Assist.

The flagship 2.4 Exclusive also adds Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist and Collision Mitigation Braking System to the already extensive list.

  • The updated Honda CR-V range is available from Honda Motors Southern Africa’s national dealer network.
  • Pricing includes a three-year/100 000km warranty, while a five-year/90 000km service plan is included.
  • A one-year AA roadside assistance package is included.
  • Services on all models are at 15 000km intervals.
