|| || ||5/9/2006: Honda Odyssey: all-new third-generation SUV revealed
Since its introduction in 1995, Honda has sold in excess of 2.5
million CR-V in more than 160 countries.
There is a clever double-deck luggage area, formed by a substantial
shelf which sits at a height of 330mm above the load floor.
The 140ps 2.2-litre i-CTDi diesel is unchanged but fuel economy is
better because the new body shape is 12% more slippery than before.
The gasoline engine is a new design based on the 1.8-litre Sohc
i-VTEC seen in the Civic. Delayed closure of the intake valves
combined with a wide open throttle valve during low-load driving
conditions to reduce pumping losses and boost fuel economy. Petrol
engine models are equipped with brand new transmissions: either a
6-speed manual or an optional 5-speed automatic.
Maximum power and torque figures are 110kW (150ps) at a slightly
lower 6,200 rpm, and 190Nm at 4,200rpm and the engine??ôs
greater efficiency, together with the improved aerodynamics and the
new gearboxes, boosts fuel economy. Performance is also enhanced,
with the 0-100km/h time dropping from 10.8 to 10.2 seconds (manual)
and from 13.1 to 12.2 seconds (automatic).
