The CR-V is a constant class leader representing the SUV C segment. Its manageable size, versatility, and do-anything nature make it perfectly suited to be whatever you want it to be, from a suburban task-runner to a practical family vehicle.

Design

Design

First introduced in 1995, the first-generation Honda CR-V helped establish a new breed of compact sport utility vehicle with car-like ride and handling thanks to its unibody construction, four-wheel independent suspension, and long wheelbase. From 1995 to the current generation, it has evolved in a multitude of ways, always keeping in mind the wants and needs of the consumer. You can see the unmistakable lines that mark this car out as an evolution of the iconic CR-V silhouette.

The All-New CR-V is set to be the SUV for all occasions and strives to be the vehicle to be ‘As Different as You Are’. For this year, the car has been completely reformed to feature all-new rugged and sophisticated design, sleek roofline and long hood to create a sportier profile, distinctive grille design, signature vertical LED taillights, standard Honda Sensing® system with 360 multi-view camera, 7 Inch TFT meter screen and 9 Inch Display Audio with wireless CarPlay and Android Auto and a Qi-compatible wireless charger. In addition, the new CR-V also features a panoramic sunroof, card key and power Tailgate, available in the EX and Touring.

Specifications and trims

Specifications and trims

As a first, the new CR-V has a 1.5L VTEC® Turbo Engine, a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, mated to an advanced CVT to deliver smooth, seamless power. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) has step shift programming, that mimics gears shift just like a conventional automatic, providing a sportier drive feel. The CVT also provides significant drivability and performance improvements thanks to optimization of Torque on Demand control, early downshift during braking, and improved refinements to the Honda G shift control. At full throttle. In terms of performance numbers, the CR-V produces 190 HP @6000 RPM and an impressive torque of 243 Nm@ at a very low 1700-5000RPM. The CR-V is equipped with two drive modes allowing the driver to select ECON to save fuel or Normal, for everyday driving.

The Honda CR-V as a first in this region is equipped with Honda SensingTM suite of active safety and driver assistive technologies in all grades that uses a new single-camera system which detects a wider view of the road ahead for enhanced recognition capability. Combined with software advances and a new, more powerful processor, the system is also capable of more quickly and accurately identifying other vehicles and make driving both easier and safer.

The safety features include the collision mitigation braking system (CMBS) design to detect and alert the driver of a potential collision. Additionally, an adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow allowing the vehicle to adjust its speed automatically for a safe and comfortable journey. The lane keeping assist system (LKAS) helps to keep vehicles in the middle of a detected lane. The road departure mitigation system (RDM) which alerts driver when it detects the vehicle may have unintentionally deviated from its lane. Lastly, a lane departure warning which sends a visual alert and audible sound if the car moves out of its lane without the indicator being activated.

The CR-V is available in four grades which are the DX, LX, EX and Touring. It features seven exterior colours which are Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Coffee Cherry Red Metallic, Brilliant Sporty Blue, Canyon River Blue Metallic, Meteoroid Gray Metallic and Crystal Black Pearl. It also features two interior colours with fabric and one with leather including Grayge Fabric, Natural Black Fabric and Grayge Leather.

Auto China 2024 and beyond: Mercedes-Benz to showcase its focus on China with new products and localised developments

At and around Auto China 2024, Mercedes Benz underlines its commitment to delivering dedicated products and technologies to Chinese customers. As the largest single automotive market in the world, China plays an important role in the long-term strategy of Mercedes Benz. Running up to the show, the company will maintain its leadership position in this market, headlined by the world premiere of the all-new electric Mercedes Benz G Class.

China is home to the company’s largest production site and the most comprehensive R&D hub outside Germany, playing a significant role in Mercedes Benz’s global R&D network. In recent years, Mercedes Benz strengthened its R&D capabilities in China, particularly in electrification and digitalisation. In 2021, the company opened the new R&D Tech Centre China in Beijing, equipped with state-of-the-art testing labs, including E drive, battery, charging, NVH, and more. In 2022, Mercedes Benz established the new R&D Centre Shanghai, focusing on connectivity, automated driving, plus software and hardware development.

Besides the R&D Centre, the existing Design Centre will continue to promote the digital dimension in Mercedes Benz designs.

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Premium British vehicle manufacturer Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has announced the 25 commemorative names to be paired with the 25 T.50s Niki Lauda chassis. Each of the track-only T.50s supercars will celebrate Gordon Murray’s rich racing heritage with their names commemorating the dates of his first 24 Grand Prix wins at different circuits, and a special endurance race victory.

Already allocated to their owners, each of the T.50s chassis is themed chronologically, starting with Murray’s first race victory – 1974 South Africa at Kyalami – and continuing with each subsequent win at unique locations: 1974 USA at Watkins Glen; 1975 Brazil at Interlagos; 1975 Germany at Nürburgring; 1978 Sweden at Anderstorp; 1980 Italy at Imola; 1980 Netherlands at Zandvoort; 1981 Argentina at Buenos Aires; 1982 Monte Carlo at Monaco; 1982 Canada at Montreal; 1983 Brazil at Rio; 1983 Italy at Monza; 1983 UK at Brands Hatch; 1984 USA at Detroit; 1985 France at Paul Ricard; 1988 Mexico at Mexico City; 1988 UK at Silverstone; 1988 Belgium at Spa; 1988 Portugal at Estoril; 1998 Spain at Jerez; 1988 Japan at Suzuka; 1988 Germany at Hockenheim; 1988 Hungary at Hungaroring; 1988 Australia at Adelaide; 1995 France at La Sarthe.

The news comes ahead of the global dynamic debut of the T.50s Niki Lauda prototype on 13 April at the UK’s Goodwood Motor Circuit. The first public outing for the T.50s prototype will headline the 81st Goodwood Members Meet where more than 15,000 track spectators will enjoy the first outing of the race-spec car revving through to its 12,100 rpm redline. The T.33 mule ‘James’ will also make its dynamic debut at the event marking the progress made by the GMA R&D team and enabling the public to hear the GMA.2 V12 engine for the first time.

The Goodwood event will celebrate the career of famed racer Niki Lauda – the 1970s and 1980s F1 driver whose name appears on every T.50s. Raising the occasion’s significance further, GMA will explain the unique connection between the T.50s and the iconic Brabham BT46B ‘Fan Car’ that Niki Lauda drove to a commanding victory at the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix.

Conceived by Gordon Murray during his 17-year tenure as Chief Designer at the Brabham Formula One team, the BT46B rose to instant iconic status due to Murray’s innovative addition of a ground-effect fan system. Having dominated and won its inaugural race at Anderstorp, Sweden in the hands of Niki Lauda, the model was withdrawn by Brabham to pacify other teams for the good of the championship.

Gordon Murray, CBE – Executive Chairman, Gordon Murray Group: “The dynamic debuts of the GMA T.33 mule and GMA T.50s XP1 mark an important milestone in the development of both supercars. I’m also proud that we will participate in honouring a man who was a one-of-a-kind racer and a great friend by showcasing the T.50s Niki Lauda at Goodwood. Additionally, revealing the 25 historically significant motor racing names for our track-only T.50s is the perfect way to celebrate a favourite event for me and the whole GMA team.”

GMA’s Dario Franchitti will present attendees with an insightful overview of the story of the BT46B and its significance in the design and engineering of the T.50 supercar and its track-spec T.50s sibling. The GMA team will also be joined by His Grace the Duke of Richmond who will take a tour of the Murray display of heritage race cars and modern-day GMA supercars.
