    Its weight varies from 1,500 kg up to 1,592 kg. The front suspension uses McPherson, while the rear suspension is based on a multilink arrangement. The crossover uses 17-inch alloy wheels, with 235/65 R17 tires, and 18-inch wheels, covered by 235/60 R18 tires.

    1. Is the excellent Double Wishbone Rear suspension a history???
    2. The tyres have gone up from 225mm to 235mm.

    Ground Clearance has been increase to 8.2 inch. Is Honda reading me?? :Smile: Both of my requests have been granted. (235mm size tyres and about 208mm ground clearance). Well done.

    All should be 7 1/2J. There is a mistake in the link above. I got a confirmation from Honda USA dealer all 7.5" rims.

    According to this review, the '...interior lacks the posh feel of the Kia Sportage...'

    I've been in the Kia, and it is nice, however the interior isn't 'posh.' In fact, it doesn't match the quality of my 4th Generation CR-V! Maybe the reviewer has just come back from a nice Kia funded holiday...sorry, I mean test drive.

    I have seen Kia, few days ago. It looks good, though I dislike the front grill. I don't know if they have done any significant changes to their AWD system which I don't like. There was no traction control break when one wheel was up in the air. New CR-V looks better.

    There is a 4WD graph. OMG :Smile: (2:54) I would like to see what it does.
    What are fluid filled bushings?? Sounds nice.
    9 inch Luggage increase and 2 inch leg room increase.

    I think it is a AWD torque graph which I have seen in the Ford Kuga display. Nice feature.

    Will cars sold in the U.K. be built in Ohio USA?

    @Ichiban what is the view of US manufactured cars? Better than Swindon? What about in comparison to Honda Japan?

    All depends on quality control. Japanese are known to loose face if they don't do their job properly. It is an ego/self esteem kind of way of life.

    Firstly I read that it is going to be Canada. Then after the new Honda CEO was appointed, decision changed, to Japan. Best would have been Europe (taxation).

    Will sales decline??? Will price advantage cease to exist??? These are questions they have to think about.

    With UK exiting EU, maybe a vauxhaull opel like agreement for Honda can become a reality for UK built CR-Vs ?

    I am not a fan or total digital dash boards when they first came out on the BB5, ZE1 and AP1 I had my reservations.

    All honda products be power equipment motorcycle and cars are going this way and it's shame I love analogue gauges.

    Digital is functional but it got no charm

    Sorry missed this thread

    Japanese made car will last ten years without any major issues
    US made cars will last 7 years without issue
    UK 4 years tops
