Doha Marketing Services Company WLL (Domasco), an Al-Futtaim company and the distributor for Honda in Qatar, has announced the launch of the all-new Honda CR-V.
Now in its 5th generation, the completely redesigned and re-engineered CR-V boasts a bold new styling, premium interior and a host of new features and technologies aimed at enhancing CR-V’s status as the outright benchmark in the highly popular compact SUV segment. Faisal Sharif, Managing Director of Domasco, said: “The Honda CR-V is one of our popular models and we are extremely pleased to launch the new model in Qatar. Compared to the previous generation, the all-new CR-V raises the bar with a major update both interior and exterior. Customers will find the new CR-V offers the highest levels of comfort, performance and driving experience and is great value for money. We encourage all our customers to take one out for a test drive to truly experience this amazing vehicle.”



The new CR-V targets the highest levels of quality and driving refinement in its class with top class steering precision, ride comfort, body control and cabin quietness. The all-new CR-V comes in four grades: DX and LX in 2-wheel drive (2WD) and EX and Touring in all-wheel drive (AWD). At the heart of the all-new CR-V is a 2.4-litre DOHC, direct injected i-VTEC engine that is mated to a smooth shifting and sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic.
The 2.4-litre engine generates 184-horsepower @ 6400rpm and a torque of 244NM @ 3900rpm. The all-new body and chassis design in the CR-V provide more agile and confident handling, greater drive refinement and superior overall versatility. It has a front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension. The CR-V heads in a new fresh direction with crisper and sharper front-end design elements such as the new aggressively styled headlights surrounded by wing-shaped LED Day Time Running Lights (DRL) array on all grades.
