Honda CR-V the World’s Best-Selling SUV

The global popularity of the Honda CR-V is the world’s best-selling SUV so far in 2014. The figures, provided by global automotive market consulting specialists, Focus2Move, show worldwide sales of the CR-V to the end of May totalled 286,685 units. The results for 2014 to date follow on from 2013 and 2012, where the CR-V also took the annual title of World’s Best-Selling SUV.

The top 50 chart of the world’s best-selling cars puts the CR-V at number 10 overall for the year, well above any other SUV’s including the Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Santa Fe, Volkswagen Tiguan and the Nissan Qashqai.

The latest 1.6 i-DTEC gives a low emission diesel engine and two-wheel drive is also now available. The success of the new model means Irish CR-V sales have increased by a phenomenal 220% this year as the CR-V climbs Ireland’s SUV sales charts.

The CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC delivers performance (300Nm of torque and 120PS), low fuel economy (4.5L/100km 63mpg) and CO2 emissions of 119g/km for annual road tax of just €200. The combination of a light-weight engine and two-wheel drive system means that the CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC is sure-footed while also delivering agile handling. Styling maintains the same confident stance adopted at the introduction of the fourth generation CR-V, offering impressive practicality with 1,648 litres of luggage capacity.

The Honda CR-V retails from €31,995 and with the availability of new Honda Now PCP Finance packages, the CR-V can now be driven away from as little as €369 per month. For further information please visit
