The CR-V has always been one of the most efficient SUVs on the market and Honda's engineers have worked tirelessly to hone every aspect of the fourth generation model. Improved aerodynamics and sophisticated electronics combine to achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. As with so many elements of the new CR-V, form and function go hand in hand in the aerodynamics of the car. The adoption of a flat under floor and sculptured wheelarches have smoothed the air flow under the car, while a longer roof combined with aerodynamically optimised front bumper and rear spoiler help to manage the air-flow over the body. The result is a reduction in the drag coefficient of 6.5% compared with the current CR-V benefitting performance, fuel economy and reducing exhaust emissions.
