Honda’s clever 4x4 system, showcased on next year’s new Legend, will be shared with models across its range, the company announced last week. The SH-AWD system, which improves balance and grip, is geared towards high-powered models. One possible use could be for the next-generation NSX, whose future is up for debate. The company will also build diesel engines in the UK for the first time with the 2.2-litre CDT-i for the CR-V, to be made at its Swindon plant from late next year. Together with output from Japan, this will give the company and annual capability of 75,000 diesels for the CR-V, Accord and next-generation Civic models.
