Who still says, British car companies are extinct or sold, the can be answered that they have again attracted a lot of automobile manufacturing. Germany all in all loses production capacity, England gains further capacity. Here such an example. Honda operates almost traditionally production on the island. One indicates, to have invested in the plant in Swindon 1.4 billion pounds (almost € 1.8 billion) in the last 25 years and to employ 3,500 people there.
The CRV is available, for example, in Germany since 1996. The fourth generation with each one diesel and petrol engine, the latter also to get with two-wheel drive, is presented here 2012. Unfortunately, the automatic transmission is very expensive with € 2,900. It is a version with converter, dual-clutch transmission is not yet available. After all, the increase in kerb weight remains within the limits also by the four-wheel drive with 60 kg.
The relatively low presence in Germany should not deceive, because Honda claims to have sold more than 5 million cars worldwide. 2013 is added a smaller diesel engine. It has a favourable torque for its displacement and should not be significantly inferior as 2WD than the larger 4WD diesel. At 50 g/km less CO2 and more than 3,300 € savings in the basic version, it might significantly more successful in selling.
Here the facelift for 2015 is already shown with modified engine. The automatic transmission is replaced by a continuously variable and the petrol engine now has direct injection and 2.4 litres displacement at 250 Nm torque. 12/14
