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.
