Collins said there had already been huge interest in the all-new Honda CR-V. “Because of its success overseas, our customers already know it’s coming. It’s clear both our existing customers and potential buyers currently in-market for a medium SUV, are already putting the Honda CR-V on their shopping lists.”

“When you step into the new CR-V you’ll know you’re in a premium, quality cabin but that premiumness will also be evident in the driving experience,” he said. “We also know our customers rank style as an important consideration for purchase and the CR-V has plenty of style as well as sophistication and a strong dynamic visual element.”

Mr Collins said the all-new Honda CR-V was one of three major launches for Honda in Australia in 2017. “We’re about to go on sale with the Civic hatch to complement the Civic sedan, followed by the CR-V and later in the year, the hot performance Type R,” he said.

“The Type R has already created a sensation by setting a new record for a front wheel drive car on the Nurburgring and its recent appearance at the 2017 Formula 1 Rolex Grand Prix in Melbourne generated a lot of interest.”

Honda will release pricing and full specifications closer to the time of its local launch.
