With the chassis code RD4, the second generation of Honda CRV which was released in 2002 was significantly different from the previous generation, namely increasing the length and overall height of up to a few inches. The success in the SUV segment manufacturer Honda is making it as a victim of plagiarism without permission made by Chinese manufacturers, Shuanghuan, by producing SUVnya labeled as Labiao SR-V.
Back to the discussion, a second gene of Honda CRV is sold in bulk around the world with two variants. The different features of the CR-V is sold internationally is an optional third-row seats. This is done by placing it in the cargo area and create a more robust rear suspension. It is a strategy for Honda stretcher to avoid additional tax imposed on vehicles that can carry fewer than 10 people. During the sales, SUV Honda’s best seller with over 9,000 units sold in 2003. Sales stopped in 2007 to give way to the CR-V gene 3 were introduced in the middle of the year.
If you are careful, you will see that the CR-V styling is derived from the previous generation with some of the similarities of the chassis Civic ES sold at the same time. You might say that this car looks more elegant than sporty if you compare it to the older model. Bumper black standard on models that have three rows of seats.
Miracle-generation CRV is ample cabin space for front seat row. For the driver, parking brake and automatic transmission shifter mounted on the dashboard, the same as the previous gen. But if we talk about the ergonomics, the second row seats have seatbelts four (yes, four in one bench!) As standard. While in the third row space is too cramped. Overall, the arrangement of the console panel layout is quite nice and easy to set up, but on the other hand, the display does not look fancy and tend to be boring.
Engineers from Honda decided to make the car’s driving characteristics more to sporty. Passengers will feel “just” a little comfort because of suspension used on the front has become more rigid. Unlike the previous gen applying supensi double wishbone on all four points. But with this difference, handling you’ll feel better, rounded the bend feels easier.
