Facelifted 2014 Honda CR-V Series II revealed
Honda has revealed its facelifted 2014 Honda CR-V Series II featuring a range of upgrades to two and all-wheel drive variants, and no price change.
HONDA HAS revealed its “redesigned inside and out” 2014 Honda CR-V Series II. And, according to Honda Australia director, Stephen Collins: “The most significant change to the two-wheel drive range is the addition of two variants. The two-wheel drive variants also have the same spec levels as their four-wheel drive counterparts; what differentiates them is drivetrain.
“Spec levels are outstanding and we’ve kept the same sharp, competitive price, demonstrating our commitment to great value for money.”
Key exterior changes see the addition of LED daytime running lights, a new griller and new front and rear bumper design as well as a new colour; Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic. Inside, the changes are limited to paino-black trim and chrome surrounds to HVAC vents.
Honda has grown the variants available, with buyers now able to choose from three two-wheel drive variants: VTi (from $27,490+ORC – manual; from $29,790+ORC), VTi-S (from $33,290+ORC) and VTi-L (from $36,290+ORC). Both the petrol and diesel VTi receive Honda’s Display Audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming along with one HDMI and two USB ports. The reversing camera has also been upgraded to feature three modes: top-down, wide and normal.
The VTi-S variants in both drivetrains (petrol and diesel) receive Smart Entry with push-button start, auto wipers, auto headlights, front and rear sensors, dual-zone climate control and Honda’s LaneWatch system that features an integrated camera offering an 80-degree view of the left lane of traffic to aid the driver in monitoring a blind spot.
Both VTi-L drivetrains feature Display Audio Plus with inbuilt satellite navigation and leather-appointed trim. The four-wheel drive VTi-L’s factory-fitted Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) which includes Collision Mitigating Braking System (CMBS), Active Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS) has also been retained (it’s available from from $42,290+ORC).
