There are two main options for CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC diesel buyers - a 120PS powerplant mated to 2WD - that's the one most will choose. Or, for a £2,000 model-for-model premium, a pokier 160PS unit mated to 4WD. The lower-powered variant looks much cheaper because it alone can be ordered with entry-level 'S' trim. Otherwise with both engines, buyers select between 'SE', 'SR' or 'EX' trim levels. At 'SE' grade, you can specify satellite navigation for around £1,200 more if you want it. Otherwise, further up the trim hierarchy, sat nav comes included.
As before, you'll pay a premium of around £1,000 to own a diesel CR-V rather than the equivalent 2.0-litre petrol version. Prices for this 1.6-litre diesel variant have been kept quite competitive, starting at around £23,500 for the 120PS 2WD model in base 'S' trim. This variant is reasonably well equipped, featuring an Intelligent 'i-MID' Multi Info Display, power lumbar support for the driver's seat, Dual Zone Climate Control, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, steering wheel stereo controls, power windows and heated power mirrors, plus daytime running lights, an alarm and immobiliser, USB and iPod auxiliary inputs and one touch folding rear seats. You also get a CD tuner and 4 speaker stereo, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), a anti-lock braking system, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Brake Assist, Trailer Stability Assist and Hill Start assist to stop you from drifting backwards on uphill junctions.
