Honda Australia has released a refreshed version of the Honda CR-V for 2010 with updated styling, upgraded specification levels and more aggressive pricing.

With curtain airbags becoming standard on the entry-level model every car in the CR-V range is now equipped with dual front, side and curtain bags.

The ride and handling has been improved with revisions to the front suspension. Revised side mirrors and extra sound deadening around the engine bay and cabin have improved NVH levels and passenger comfort.

Visually the new CR-V gets redesigned front and rear bumpers and an evolution of the two-step grille. The interior is finished in new materials and surfaces designed to better combine its SUV and passenger car qualities.

Two accessory packages are available across the range, with the Active pack adding roof racks, side steps, cargo protector tray, deluxe mats, side window visors, door sill garnish and dust and pollen filter, chrome exhaust tip and Bluetooth, and the Modulo Sports pack including a sports grille, front and rear skid plates, side steps, tailgate spoiler, chrome exhaust tip and chrome mirror covers.

Both packages add $2699 to the total price.

The 2010 Honda CR-V range is available now in two new colours – Urban Titanium and Habenero Red – for the following manufacturer’s list prices (includes GST, excludes dealer delivery and statutory charges):

  • Standard manual – $30,990 (down $2000)
  • Standard auto – $33,290 (down $2000)
  • Sport auto – $38,790 (down $3500)
  • Luxury auto – $42,790 (down $3000)

Metallic paint is a $475 option across the range.
