The 5 things you need to know about the 2018 Honda CR-V

The 2018 Honda CR-V will launch in Australia next week with prices starting at $30,690+ORC in 2WD and AWD and five- and seven-seat trim.

THE HONDA CR-V is, along with the Down Under arrival of the Civic Type R one of the highlights for Honda this year. With more Australians buying SUVs last year than babies born, the arrival of yet another SUV into a crowded and competitive market will see Honda having to fight to be noticed. It helps that the CR-V is already one of the most popular models on-sale in its segment and the best-selling SUV around the world too, and that changes to this new one should see its loyal followers trade-up to it, while wooing new buyers too.

“Twenty years ago the first generation Honda CR-V redefined the segment by delivering space, efficiency and versatility in a compact package. One that Australian families had never seen before,” said Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins. 

“Our customers consistently tell us what a joy their CR-Vs are to live with and the fifth generation builds on this reputation with new levels of style, versatility, technology and value.

“The all-new CR-V is bolder and more stylish than ever, and in true Honda fashion it nails the brief for versatility with more interior space plus a new seven seat option,” said Collins.
