2013 Honda CR-V Becomes '4x4 of The Year'

Japanese automaker Honda has got a reason to be happy this Christmas as its flagship SUV CR-V has been crowned as the '4x4 of The Year' by the prestigious publication Total 4x4. This is the first ever award won by the 2013 CR-V, which was launched in UK recently. 2013 Honda CR-V is being manufactured at Honda's Swindon facility, and is being sold in United Kingdom.The competition was fierce and the magazine’s test team pitted the Honda against several key rivals in the ‘Medium SUV’ segment. Sweeping them aside it took class honours, making it a contender for the overall ‘best of the best’ title, which it duly won. It’s an outstanding achievement for such a new vehicle.

Total 4x4 Magazine’s testing process is a comprehensive one, ranging from interior quality, comfort and practicality to repeated drives of a set road route by different judges. The publication’s editor, Alan Kidd, commented: “Never before have there been so many likely candidates for the overall title. However, from the moment we started crawling around inside the CR-V, it was clear Honda had hit the jackpot. The quality of its interior is on a par with the best, and its flexibility is exceptional – and that was before we actually drove it.”He continued: “Seldom has a new 4x4 put such a big tick in so many boxes. It takes an awful lot to impress us these days. The new CR-V didn’t just impress us – it made our jaws drop.” Dave Hodgetts, Managing Director of Honda (UK), was thrilled with the honour. “For the new CR-V to take its first award so soon after launch is a real festive treat for everyone and a fantastic way to end the year. We hope it will be the first of many.” The new CR-V is in dealerships now with prices starting from £21,395 OTR (Rs 19.04 lakhs) for the base entry level 2.0 i-VTEC S grade 2WD model. 2013 Honda CR-V has been launched some time back in South Africa and it is expected to be launched in India as well, the car might see an Indian launch by early 2013.
