A Black or White Decision - Honda CR-V Special Editions set to Turn Heads
LONDON--February 20, 2014: Honda (UK) has unveiled two eye-catching, Special Edition variants of the popular CR-V, the Black Edition and White Edition. Both share a range of bold exterior enhancements that give the car even greater road presence. The CR-V Special Edition models represent a saving of £770 compared to the CR-V SE-T combined with the relevant optional equipment.
With both the Black Edition and White Edition, the CR-V's distinctive styling is enhanced with the addition of bold 19-inch Orion alloy wheels, exhaust finisher and privacy glass. A new patterned front grille gives a more powerful expression of performance, while a tailgate spoiler extends the flowing lines of the roof over the rear window to give a sleek, dynamic look. Smoothly integrated running boards add practicality and visual impact, while front and rear skid plates top the styling upgrades while protecting the underside of the car.
The Special Editions also benefit from the generous specification offered with the CR-V SE-T, which features dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth HFT, front and rear parking sensors and power-folding door mirrors, plus metallic paint and satellite navigation all as standard.
The CR-V Special Editions will be supported online at Honda Head Turner with a campaign which dubs the new model 'The new head-turner from Honda'. The site invites users to choose 'Which one turns your head?', with an interactive graphic showing the percentage split between those favouring black against those opting for white. Users can also tweet their preference with the hashtag #CRVWHITE or #CRVBLACK, or share their choice on Facebook.
Leon Brannan, Head of Cars for Honda (UK) comments: "The CR-V is already a very popular choice thanks to its combination of distinctive and refined styling and excellent versatility. The new Special Edition Black and White enhance the range even further, offering real stand-out appeal and a bold new look. Now the only decision for customers is which colour most turns their head!"
The new models are available now in manual or automatic, with either the 2.0 i-VTEC petrol or 2.2 i-DTEC diesel engine. On the road prices start from £28,400 for the petrol manual version. Honda (UK) is currently offering competitive low monthly PCP payments from just £309 on the CR-V Special Edition. This new variant also benefits from a £500 deposit contribution and the 5 year Honda care package which includes five years warranty, servicing and roadside assist for £500.
