A Review Of Honda CR-V 2004 Diesel Engine

When Honda launched its CR-V with all-wheel drive option that could be turned off when not needed, it procured huge sales and became a hit globally. The Honda brands were not very much into the 4x4 ruggedness, even then, for last three generations, the CR-V has sold five million examples. When revealed in 1995, the mix of 4x4's practicality with the reflexes of the car has revolutionised this class. So, now every manufacturer of this class features almost similar lines. Main and expected competitors were the Ford Kuga, Hyundai and Kia – but to much of a surprise – the Audi and the BMW. Keeping its UK customers in mind, Honda made some big changes to the fourth generation CR-V.

To begin with, there's an option – initially for the petrol engines only – the front wheel drive alongside the conventional four wheel drive. Honda CR-V diesel and petrol engines were overhauled to reduce CO2 emissions and improve fuel economy. The 148 bhp 2.2-litre i-DTEC emissions dropped to just 153g/km from 171g/km, whereas, the 153bhp 2.0-litre i-VTEC emissions have fallen to 174g/km from the 192g/km. If this engine is 2WD, then the emissions will fall to 170g/km. The 4WD diesel engine was also overhauled and the hydraulically operated dual pump system was replaced by electronically controlled multi-plate clutch. The cabin is brilliantly built, its spacious, stylish and practical altogether.

The leg-room in the second row is ample to lodge adults comfortably. The flat bed ensures that the passenger sitting in the middle chair would have a little to complain about. The stowage space is also very generous and gets an extra 148 litres when the rear seats are folded. The load lip is also lowered for easy loading. Honda's progress towards improving the standards of response and quietness is, somewhat, slower than of its competitors. On the other hand its competitors are furious in rewriting their own standards. If you compare the price of Honda CR-V – with the BMW X3 2.0-litre diesel, whose engine would be thoroughly shoeing the Honda – it's higher than of BMW.

The amount of power CR-V's engine delivers is just 148bhp with 258lb ft of torque, whereas the BMW delivers 181bhp. This automatic CR-V takes 9.7 seconds for 0-62mph sprint. Even if the four wheel drive is unengaged, the overall economy is 36.1mpg. The brakes are also impressive. Honda CR-V engines consist of a 2.0-litre i-VTEC 150bhp petrol engine which produces 192Nm of torque, the CO2 emissions are 215g/km. It takes 10.8 seconds for a sprint to 62mph, with combine economy of 26.1mpg. Honda CR-V diesel engine is a 2.2-litre i-DTEC 140bhp which produces 340Nm of torque, the CO2 emissions are 177g/km. It takes 10.6 seconds for a sprint to 62mph, with combine economy of 35.1mpg.
