Honda Canada has announced pricing for the all new 2007 Honda CR-V compact sport-utility vehicle. Ranging from Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSPR) of $27,700 for the two-wheel-drive LX model to $37,400 for the CR-V EX-L Navi. CR-V is scheduled to go on sale in Canada on October 16.
“Since its introduction in 1997, Honda’s CR-V has remained a popular choice for Canadians because of its compact size, innovative features and excellent fuel efficiency”, said Jim Miller, executive vice president of Honda Canada Inc. “The redesigned, re-engineered 2007 CR-V provides increased functionality, capability, refinement and the highest levels of standard safety features in its class”.
The all-new 2007 Honda CR-V adds a dynamic sense of style and refinement, while adding collision compatibility safety enhancements such as Honda’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure for enhanced crash compatibility and occupant protection. New for 2007 is the option of two-wheel-drive (available on LX) and Honda’s Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Bilingual Voice Recognition™ and rearview camera (featured on the CR-V EX-L Navi model).
The 2.4-litre i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine and standard 5-speed automatic transmission provide an excellent balance of power (166 horsepower) and fuel economy of 10.2 / 7.3 L/100km (city/highway) with available 2WD and 10.7 / 7.8 L/100km (city/highway) with AWD.
Top-of-class standard safety equipment includes side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), active front head restraints, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
The fully automatic RealTime™ 4-wheel drive system is standard on all trim levels (with the option of 2-wheel drive available on the LX trim). The RealTime™ 4-wheel drive system is designed to enhance the CR-V’s all-weather capabilities when driving in rain, snow, dirt roads and sandy conditions without the significant weight, fuel economy and handling performance drawbacks of conventional 4-wheel-drive systems.
