There’s a new gearbox in town. Available to test drive now, the new Honda CR-V 1.6 9-speed automatic is brrmming quietly to itself and awaits you at your local Brayley Honda showrooms in Hertfordshire and North London.
What’s a 9-speed automatic gearbox going to do for the CR-V? For a start, it’s 37kg lighter than its predecessor; it’s more efficient, contributing to the low CO2 emissions of the new CR-V; it’s much quieter; and, finally, it’s so smooooth... as it shifts effortlessly through those nine gears. So, overall, it gives this Honda SUV all the easy-to-drive refinement you could ask for in such a spacious crossover.
