A cyclist in downtown San Francisco (or so we're told) thought he would be protected if he rode alongside a Honda CR-V that rolled through a stop sign. Unfortunately, he was proven wrong.

The absence of marked bicycle lanes on the road can cause problems for both cyclists and motorists, but that doesn't mean drivers should act like tailgating fools.

Black and/or white editions of so many cars are cropping up these days that you really wonder if copying is what all the manufacturers do now…

Honda CRV 1.6 Diesel Driven with a Light Right Foot Achieves 77.86mpg UK or 3.6l/100km


Read more

Honda is very proud of its new 1.6-liter diesel engine that’s more in tune with the times than their traditional 2.2-liter unit that was often shunned in markets that taxed cars on displacement.

The smaller unit now equips the Civic, Civic Tourer and CRV, and even in the latter, which is noticeably bigger than the first two, it still achieves excellent economy figures in real world conditions.

Diesel powerplants are the way to go in Europe when it comes to mainstay models for the masses. If they're available in smaller displacements, even better. After launching its new 1.6-liter i-DTEC on the Civic hatchback in the beginning of the year, Honda UK has now confirmed availability and pricing for the diesel unit on its latest generation CR-V.

Read more

With the 2013 Geneva Auto Show being less than a month away, auto manufacturers are beginning to reveal details about the models they will debut in Switzerland.

Honda today announced that it has three premieres for the event. The first one is the Civic Wagon Concept, which the Japanese company says will provide “strong cues” for the production model that will be added to the European C-segment model’s line-up, likely within the next year or so.

Mugen Details New Honda CR-V Design Study, Could Enter Production


Read more

Typically, with the presentation of a mainstream Honda model, the brand's tuning partner Mugen instantly comes out with its own package of goods, but in the case of the fourth-generation CR-V that was introduced in late 2011, that never happened.

This might change if Mugen decides to create a production version of its prototype CR-V Design Study that was unwrapped at this week's Tokyo Auto Salon.

Among the many new customized vehicles being prepared by Honda for a world premiere at the Tokyo Auto Salon in mid-January, is the Mugen CR-V Design Study, which was announced, but not included, in the automaker's teaser photo gallery that we shared with you earlier today.

To satisfy our curiosity, we snooped around and found two photos of the Mugen-fettled concept that will most likely lead to a production model sometime next year.

Someone Should Find this Driver and Report Him/Her to the Police

Making an honest mistake while sitting behind the wheel is one thing, being careless or to put it bluntly, a complete asshat, is quite another.

On Sunday, the driver of a previous generation Honda CR-V (possibly in Taiwan - if we're wrong, tell us in the comments) was filmed by a motorcyclist making an extremely dangerous move on the road when he or she drove between a Nissan Sentra and a scooter driven by a father with his child riding at the back, almost knocking them down.

Power-Window Related Fire Risk Prompts Honda to Recall 489,000 CR-Vs in the U.S., Europe and Africa


Read more

Usually, water puts out a fire but when it comes to the Honda CR-V from the 2002 to 2006 model years, rain can eventually lead to a fire risk.

To explain, Honda discovered that if rainwater or other spilled liquids enter through an open driver's window and reach the master-power window switch, over time, it could cause electrical resistance. If that were to happen, the switch could overheat smoke, and cause a fire.

Honda Releases a Boatload of Photos of the European Market 2013 CR-V


Read more

It was only in July that Honda gave us a second look at the European specification version of its new CR-V, but the Japanese carmaker wants us to take a better and closer glimpse at the compact crossover with a new batch of high-resolution images – 95 to be precise.

The new gallery also includes shots of the available range of genuine accessories such as the two-tone alloy wheels, aero kits (as pictured above), chrome trim parts and more.

Meanwhile in Russia No12: Splash Tank, Jumpy BMW X5, Crash Parking and Fast and Faster

If you think SeaWorld's 12,000-pound orcas can make a splashing entrance, wait until you see what a tank can do to a crowd while jumping into a mud pond.

Talking about jumping, our second video from Russia shows why drivers should tone it down a notch – even though the person behind the wheel of the BMW X5 was saved from the worse of it.

Honda Drops New Photos and Video of European-Spec 2013 CR-V Crossover


Read more

The new generation of the Honda CR-V has been on sale in North America since last December, but the European version of the compact soft-roader was only just revealed in production form and it won’t be arriving in showrooms until late October – early November, depending on the country.

We have already detailed the European model in our previous post here, but Honda just came out with some new photos and static video footage of the crossover that you will find right after the break.

2013 Acura ILX and 2012 Honda CR-V Recalled Because Doors May Open "Unexpectedly"


Read more

An issue with the front door latches of the new 2012 Honda CR-V crossover and 2013 Acura ILX compact sedan is forcing Honda to voluntarily recall more than 170,000 vehicles in the United States over 20,000 in Canada.

The Japanese carmaker said that simultaneous operation of the driver's or passenger's inner door handle and either the manual or power door lock may lead to a problem that causes the door to not latch properly and possibly open unexpectedly.

Honda Unveils European Market 2013 CR-V, Available with Diesel and Petrol Engines


Read more

This is the production version of the European market Honda CR-V that was previewed through a thinly disguised prototype at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March.

Compared to the North American model that went on sale last December, the European CR-V sports some subtle design changes and a wider engine lineup that includes a pair of thrifty diesel units.

On the outside, the European model features a number of refinements including a revised front bumper, front LED daytime running lights and rear LED lights, reshaped mirrors that incorporate turning signals and a fin-style antenna. There are no notable changes to the interior.

Honda says the length (4,570mm) and height (1,650mm) of the car have been reduced by 5mm and 30mm respectively compared with the current model, without reducing the interior space. The vehicle's width remains the same.

Honda CR-V Driver Loses Control and Flips Over at the Nürburgring Circuit


Read more

True, anyone can go to the Nürburgring in Germany for a quick lap around the world's most famous racetrack, but that doesn't mean they should overdo it as common sense says they must be cautious and know the their own as well as their vehicle's limits.

Plus, what looks like a regular, previous generation Honda CR-V equipped with a…sic bull bar isn't exactly the type of vehicle you’d like to push too much at high speeds on the Nordschleife.

The driver of the Japanese crossover lost control of the vehicle as he came out of a quick corner and ended flipping over the guardrail. The accident, as you can imagine, is a very scary one indeed.

Read more

Honda has just issued a voluntary recall for approximately 554,000 SUVs in the United States to address a potential problem with components of the headlight wiring system.

The recall affects 2002 to 2004 model year CR-V crossovers and 2003 model year Pilot SUVs.

Honda Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain 2006 CR-Vs Because they Could Lose Control


Read more

Owners of the 2006 model CR-V crossover in the Unites States will soon receive a notification from Honda to bring their vehicles to an authorized dealer for inspection.

The reason why Honda issued the voluntary safety recall on 1,316 examples of its model-year 2006 CR-V is a potential problem with the right front lower control arm that could cause the vehicle to go out of control.

Honda will voluntarily recall 1,316 model-year 2006 CR-V vehicles in the United States to inspect and, if necessary, replace the right front lower control arm.
