New Honda CR-V on show in Paris

30 August 2006

  • Next-generation CR-V 4x4 at Paris Motor Show
  • Latest off-roader features new petrol engine
  • New Civic Type-R and FR-V on show, too


The next evolution of Honda's CR-V compact 4x4 will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show next month.

The all-new car will feature a new 2.0-litre petrol engine alongside the existing 2.2-litre diesel and come with new safety features such as adaptive cruise control and Honda's Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMBS).

CMBS first appeared on the new Legend executive car and offers the driver a series of warnings - and then applies the brakes - if it detects an imminent crash.

The new CR-V is expected in UK showrooms in January, although there are no indications of prices yet.

Also on show will be the production version of the Civic Type R hot hatch and a revised FR-V MPV featuring a new 1.8-litre petrol.

The Paris Motor Show kicks off on September 28. Come back to then for news, gossip, videos and photos direct from the show.
