Honda is preparing to bring to the Chinese market twin CR-V current generation. In other countries, the novelty is unlikely to emerge.
That Honda clone CR-V, became known in may when the Network posted a spy photo with the testing of a new SUV, made in China. And the original cross in this market also sell. Now has pictures of the twin CR-V without any disguise, made them into the database of the Ministry of industry of the PRC. On the boot door you can see the name of a cross – Breeze.
Recall, for China’s presence in the range of car brands “twins” – a common practice. The fact that foreign brands may be several joint ventures with various local companies. For example, the same Honda in China is the SUV, the twin XR-V and Vezel, Avancier, and UR-V, a different design of the exterior and interior. For the production of “real” CR-V, XR-V UR-V meets JV Dongfeng and Honda, while Breeze will be on the JV GAC and Honda, which also produces Vezel and Avancier.
In profile, the new SUV remains CR-V, but the front and back over it seriously worked: the crossover got a new bonnet, grille and bumpers, other headlights and taillights. The latter, incidentally, have lost their upper sections. The baggage door is also new. Honda Breeze’s bigger brother, its length is 4585 mm 4634 mm against the Chinese version of the CR-V Wheelbase grew by elusive mm – to mm. 2661 Photos of the interior yet. It is possible that Breeze is a three-row interior, while the CR-V in China exclusively available in five-seat version (in Southeast Asia and Europe the CR-V is a seven-seater variant).
