Honda Dominates The Honest John 4x4 Award Category For The Second Year Running

LONDON, May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The new Honda CR-V is following hot in the footsteps of its predecessor as it's named the 'Most Popular 4x4' by expert motoring website honestjohn.co.uk. The new CR-V takes the accolade in the 2013 honours list - a year after the previous generation took the top spot - to reinforce the popularity of this British-built car.

Reliable, capable, spacious, versatile and comfortable, these are just some of the qualities that highlight why the CR-V has sold over 5 million models globally since it was first introduced in 1995. The wraps came off the new fourth-generation CR-V in summer 2012 to reveal a comprehensively redesigned and re-engineered model with practicality, refinement, efficiency and quality remaining at the core. Prices range from £21,505 OTR for the entry-level 2.0 i-VTEC S 2WD to £30,965 for the top-of-the-range 2.2 i-DTEC EX 4WD variant which comes loaded with goodies such as satellite navigation, keyless entry and power tailgate.

The CR-V is also the next model in the Honda line-up to receive the new efficient Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine. Unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC will be available in two-wheel drive with manual transmission featuring CO2 emissions of only 119g/km*. This new derivative will arrive in dealerships this Autumn.

The honestjohn.co.uk awards aren't awarded by judges or a panel, instead they come from the best experts of all: the website users. The main awards recognise and reward the cars and vans that users search for most on the site. Put simply, the reviews which create the most interest among honestjohn.co.uk users are the winners. The data to measure this is taken from Google Analytics and calculates the number of page views each review has had over the previous 12 months from April 2012 to April 2013.

Dan Harrison, editor of honestjohn.co.uk, commented: "The 2012 Honda CR-V picks up where its predecessor left off - the previous generation model won this award last year and impressively the latest version has picked up the 2013 award. Refined and upmarket it has all the qualities to be a big seller in the SUV market and as our figures prove, users of honestjohn.co.uk are certainly showing plenty of interest. The addition of the new 1.6 i-DTEC engine will surely only increase its appeal."
