A BRITISH-built off-roader ready for the rough and tumble of everyday motoring will go on sale in October – but it isn’t by Land Rover.
In fact, the new arrival is the fourth generation of Honda’s CR-V, which is being built at the Japanese giant’s factory in Swindon and promises to be smoother and more practical than its predecessors.
A Honda spokesperson said this week: “The CR-V is one of the key pillars of Honda’s global portfolio. To develop the latest version of a model that has sold over five million examples is a big responsibility, but we have enjoyed the challenge.
”If you want to improve a vehicle that is already well balanced and respected, the only solution is to enhance that vehicle in every area while making it smaller, lighter and more efficient than ever before. That is what we have done with the new CR-V.”
The previous three generations of the CR-V, a small off-roader, has been on sale in the UK since the mid nineties, and proved popular enough for Honda to start producing it at its UK plant in 1998.
