Honda has released a first set of images of the new Breeze SUV, which will initially be sold alongside the popular CR-V SUV in the Chinese market.
Honda will manufacture the Breeze in partnership with Guangzhou Motors and market it as a sort of more dynamic-looking CR-V. The Breeze is actually a little bit longer than its more established sibling, but shares the latter’s width and height, as well as the same bumper design.
All in all, the Breeze measures 4,634 mm (182.4 inches) x 1,855 mm (73 inches) x 1,679 mm (66.1 inches), with a wheelbase of 2,661 mm (104.7 inches). Meanwhile, the front fascia is lifted directly off the Accord, while both the headlights and LED taillights (now L-shaped) feature a considerably sharper design than the ones on the CR-V.
It derives power from a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 193 horsepower and is connected to a CVT automatic transmission. It can also be had with a 2.0-litre i-MMD hybrid system with two- and four-wheel-drive configurations. Moreover, a black edition further elevates its exterior appeal.
