2006 Honda CR-V Expands Availability of Two-Wheel-Drive Models



Enhanced value and increased fuel economy broaden popular entry SUV's appeal

Torrance, Calif. 02/17/2006 -- The popular Honda CR-V EX trim level is now available in a two-wheel-drive (2WD) version, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today. Until now, the choice of 2WD or four-wheel-drive (4WD) has been exclusive to the LX trim level, and the expansion of 2WD into the more upscale and full-featured EX trim level provides an added dimension of value and fuel economy.

The CR-V EX 2WD provides the same level of premium features as the CR-V EX 4WD including alloy wheels, moonroof, a 6-speaker audio system with 6-disc changer, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, outside temperature gauge and privacy glass. A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard on the CR-V EX 2WD which achieves a city/highway EPA fuel economy rating of 23/29 (up from 22/27 on 4WD models with an automatic transmission). The manufacturers suggested retail price is $22,500. The destination and handling charge is $550.

"Two-wheel-drive models comprise an increasing portion of the entry SUV mix," said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda. "Adding two-wheel-drive to the CR-V's EX trim level helps to expand the appeal of one of our most popular SUV's."

In accordance with Honda's industry-leading "Safety for Everyone" initiative, all CR-Vs come equipped with an extensive list of standard safety equipment including front driver's and front passenger's airbags, driver's side airbag and front passenger's side airbag with Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), side curtain airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), and Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS).
