Worldwide trend in automotive industry is building more and more hybrid vehicles across all classes and segments. That’s why Honda’s decision to make 2018 Honda CR-V as petrol-only crossover is a bit strange. Popularity of hybrid cars is increasing, more carmakers decide to develop their own models which combine traditional fuel engine with electric batteries, and Japanese manufacturer is going against trends. Upcoming model is going to offer only one 4-cylinder unit, and it is about to be seen how fans will accept that.

Honda CR-V is a Japanese compact SUV, manufactured since 1995 and it was loosely derived from the Honda Civic. The CR-V is Honda’s mid-range utility vehicle, trying to find its place between the smaller HR-V and the larger Pilot. New CR-V model will be based on the new platform that underpins the recently redesigned Honda Civic, which means styling and designs, mechanical components and engines options although some are specifically going to be redesigned for the CR-V.

2018 Honda CR-V Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2018 Honda CR-V. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

The design of the exterior of the new CRV is similar to the existing model, while it has been updated, you can see styling influences of the current model large front fender and grille in particular. However, the new model also gets full LED headlights and restyled rear lights, all on a body that is 3.1” longer, which makes the Honda look a little more solid and heavier.

The CR-V’s signature vertical taillights have undergone a slight redesign, and the headlights look like they’re taken directly from an Acura. The new Honda Civic’s modular chassis, which will also underpin the next-generation Accord, will guarantee a smooth and more dynamic ride all around. The current CR-V’s 103.1-inch wheelbase will likely grow, possibly to match the 2016 Civic sedan and we can also expect changes to its basic architecture because it will have to accommodate mechanical for the all-wheel-drive system that will  be optional for the upcoming CR-V.

The interior of the CRV should be a significant upgrade over the current model. Honda have said that the quality of the finishing materials will be higher but they’re also incorporating full-color instrument panel, advanced media system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, powered front seats with heating, ventilation and massage function, heated and ventilated rear seats, three-zone climate control and powered tailgate.

Exterior is getting slight refreshment, without radical moves. Some rumors say that platform could be borrowed from Honda Fit and modified for this crossover. Some elements could be carried over from Acura NSX and Civic Type R car. We’ve heard that interior will be revisited with new control panel and dashboard, giving the new look to the gauge cluster.

Exterior of the 2018 Honda CR-V is changing but in a good way, meaning that it has adopted sportier and more upscale look, a larger, more aggressive front grille along with a longer hood and a less minivan-like stance. Honda appears to have increased the front grille of the CR-V with the new generation, and the bumper is also part of the change.

2018 Honda CR-V Engine

Although it is almost sure that 4-cylinder engine comes installed in 2018 Honda CR-V, we still don’t know exact specifications. Biggest favorite to take the place under the hood is 2.0-l VTEC, which could be found inside the Civic Type R car. With new CR-V, maximum output could go up to 280 hp. Last model was propelled from hybrid variant which paired electric motor to a 1.5-l gasoline powertrain. Only traditional engine could deliver around 130 horses. Whichever option is going to be installed, it will send power through 8-speed automatic gearbox. Finally, other option is 6-speed transmission. Company is aiming to improve fuel economy of the 2018 CR-V, so do not be surprised if crossover tops the 30 mpg mark. We still have to wait to see if it will affect performance of the SUV.

Even though the 2018 Honda CR-V is expected to be improved in pretty much all segments, it will have a hard time dealing with its more powerful competitors. To alleviate this problem, we think Honda’s going to take the same route as its competitors; turbocharging. We expect the base five-seat version of the car to use a new 1.5-liter turbocharged inline four units. With around 180 horsepower and the same amount of torque, the car should be as fast as the previous 2.4-liter model while being quite a bit more efficient.

With Honda’s push into turbocharged technology, the Civic’s new 174-hp 1.5-liter turbo four will probably be the CR-V’s standard engine. It may be tuned for more emphasis on low-rpm torque for use in the heavier CR-V (the current model’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque). Although the Civic lineup will soon offer a six-speed manual paired with this engine, a continuously variable automatic transmission will likely be the only choice for the CR-V. As before, front-wheel drive will be standard with all-wheel drive available as an option.
