New Honda CR-V announced

An all-new Honda CR-V has been announced today, with the new car going on sale in October.

Unusually for a new car, it is slightly smaller than the outgoing model. It is 5mm shorter and 30mm lower, but a lower floor means luggage space has actually gone up by 148 litres to 1648 litres. Interior space is also slightly better and the new CR-V has one of Honda's clever rear seat folding systems (first seen on the Jazz). This one enables the both the squab and the backrest to fold down with a single movement.
