The Honda CR-V Hybrid is a great contract hire SUV choice and the latest model really does impress.
The comfort levels have been improved and the fuel efficiency boosted, and there are some nice styling tweaks.
The latest offering is based on the firm’s i-MMD system for innovative levels of refinement.
Honda says this is partly to bring the CR-V Hybrid into line with other Honda e:Technology products.
Honda CR-V Hybrid is a great car leasing vehicle
The new Honda CR-V Hybrid is a great car leasing vehicle with various blue-ringed ‘H’ badges dotted around to highlight this is an electrified SUV.
The entry-level models costs £30,180 – which makes the potential of a contract hire deal more attractive.
The cabin has been restyled with a silver finish to various parts on the car’s centre console and dashboard.
All trims feature new 18-inch alloy wheels, and the SE model gets privacy glass.
CR-V Hybrid EX grade delivers more equipment
Of the trims, the CR-V Hybrid EX grade delivers more equipment including wireless smartphone charging.
Also, the hybrid powertrain retains the petrol engine and two electric motors.
Power for the CR-V Hybrid is delivered via a fixed-gear transmission.
For those who are interested in the stylish SUV as a company car, the hybrid will return WLTP fuel economy of 43mpg – that’s for the two-wheel drive versions with the all-wheel drive CR-V returning slightly less.
Emissions for the hybrid are 151g/km.
Handling has been improved
Handling for the Honda CR-V hybrid has been improved with a tweaked suspension to offer a better ride – especially when driving at low speeds.
Honda says the rigid body will help onboard comfort levels too.
Plus, the electric power-assisted steering has been improved and will offer better feedback at low speeds.
It should go with saying that the CR-V Hybrid is a safe car leasing opportunity with lots of safety equipment and a strengthened body.
Honda says the new engineering will see crash energy being distributed throughout the car more evenly to boost crash protection.
They say this is part of their ‘Safety for Everyone’ philosophy.
