The all-new Honda CR-V will make its Australian debut at the Australian International Motor Show (AIMS) in Sydney on 18 October 2012.
Honda Australia‟s Director and General Manager Sales and Marketing, Mr. Stephen Collins said Honda‟s stand at this year‟s AIMS will definitely surprise and delight. “We are really looking forward to the CR-V‟s Australian debut. The fourth-generation CR-V has been a great success so far around the world and we know Australians will embrace the upgrades to its styling, features and handling Honda‟s engineers have made.”
“The CR-V has been one of Honda Australia‟s most successful models. The segment has been rapidly expanding since the introduction of the CR-V back in 1997 and it has performed very well for us in that time,” Mr. Collins said.
For the first time in Australia, the CR-V is available with a choice of both two and four-wheel drive; the two-wheel drive is available in two variants and the four-wheel drive is available in three variants. The highly anticipated fourth-generation CR-V will be on sale mid-November.
At the same time, the all-new Jazz Hybrid will debut at AIMS and will be begin selling in early 2013 in Australia. The Jazz Hybrid will join Honda’s growing hybrid offering; Civic Hybrid, Insight and CR-Z.
The Jazz Hybrid uses Honda’s unique Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system, which couples a conventional petrol engine with an electric motor for more power when needed. The Jazz Hybrid – as with all Honda hybrids – does not need an external power source to be recharged. The battery that powers the electric motor recharges automatically by capturing the energy from braking. The Jazz Hybrid has fantastic fuel consumption, using just 4.5 l/100kms (combined urban/extra urban) with 107g/km of CO2. This means the Jazz Hybrid can travel up to 850km on a single tank of fuel.
