New Honda CR-V Hybrid, Civic Type R ‘ArtCar Manga’ Heading To Paris Show

Honda has released more details on the 2019 CR-V Hybrid, ahead of its 2018 Paris Auto Show debut, including its fuel economy figures.

Measured under the revised NEDC cycle, the front-wheel drive model of the petrol-electric SUV offers an average fuel economy of 5.3 l/100 km (53.3 mpg UK / 44.4 mpg US), and emits 120 g/km of CO2. The all-wheel drive version returns 5.5 l/100 km (51.4 mpg UK / 42.8 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 126 g/km.

Both versions of the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid are powered by a 2.0-liter i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle engine and two electric motors. The hybrid powertrain is married to a single fixed-gear ratio and is backed up by a lithium-ion battery pack, with a combined output of 184 PS (181 hp / 135 kW) and 315 Nm (232 lb-ft) of torque. Drivers will get to select between three driving modes, called EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive.

Joining the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid at the car show will be the regular versions of the SUV, including a seven-seat option. These will also be celebrating their European show debut, emphasizing their new exterior styling, interior updates and numerous advanced technologies.

The 2019 Honda CR-V is available with a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine, but the range will be extended next spring with units such as the 1.5-liter VTEC turbo and the 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel.

Honda’s final premiere for the 2018 Paris Auto Show is called the Civic Type R ArtCar Manga. Created in collaboration with Japanese design school Human Academy based in France, it’s described as having “a truly bespoke appearance” thanks to its full-car wrap.

The one-off version of the hot hatch will be presented alongside the Sport Plus model of the regular Civic.

    No matter what you put on the Type R, you’ll never be able to hide all the ugly on that thing.

    Honda should put the 2.0T engine and transmission from the Accord in the CR-V to counter Mazda CX-5! But knowing Honda they will not do that because it would match the RDX’s performance. LOL!
