New CR-V for Europe has been shown off at Paris motor show
A revised version of the Honda CR-Z hybrid coupé has been unveiled at the Paris motor show.
The facelifted CR-Z gets mild exterior and interior styling tweaks, but the more significant changes have occurred under the bonnet. Honda has hiked the power of the car’s 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and electric motor, which combine for a power output of 122bhp in the current car.
Honda says the changes won’t have an impact on exhaust emissions, which stand at 117g/km.
Another Paris unveiling from Honda is the a Civic fitted with the 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine. The first engine in Europe to feature Honda’s frugal new Earth Dreams Technology, the 118bhp oilburner returns a claimed 78.5mpg and 94g/km.
