The refreshed Honda CR-V with new bumpers and grille has been set afloat in the Italian market. Dubbed the CR-V Action Sky and CR-V Action Trend, the new variants feature nothing more than new bumpers and the fog lights pushed a little back has these two parallel plastic slabs that look like an afterthought to me.
Level of equipment has gone slightly up and the addition is worthy of mention. A new radar system mounted up front judges if the car is going to collide with an obstruction in front and brakes automatically. This system is similar to Mercedes Benz's Distronic Plus system which has saved innumerable lives.
The debate of the automatic braking system subtracting driver involvement is beyond the scope of this blog post.
The face of the Honda CR-V can suitably be described as being similar to a white's tree frog post this minor cosmetic surgery.
