The new Honda 1.6 diesel CR-V prices range from this S model entry level point through to the top end SR at £26,825.

Thanks to the fuel-efficient 1.6 diesel engine, which we have already seen in the Honda Civic, and two-wheel drive powertrain the Honda 1.6 diesel CR-V emits just 119g/km CO2 in S and SE grades. Fuel economy is 62.8mpg.

Thanks to its larger 18 inch alloys, the Honda 1.6 D CR-V SR goes into a higher tax band with CO2 emissions of 124g/km.

“The introduction of this new engine to the CR-V is an appealing proposition in the competitive SME company car market,” said Lee Wheeler, corporate sales manager at Honda. “We expect it to feature on more SME choice lists as it slips below the 120g/km barrier and is 2WD.

“The car’s combination of impressive fuel economy and agile performance, combined with the practicality and luggage space the CR-V is famed for, plus Honda’s acknowledged reputation for reliability, means it’s a car which will catch the eye of business car managers and small fleet company car choosers,” added Lee.
