2023 Honda Breeze
The new sixth generation Honda CR-V Cross is now available in China, and now the new Breeze is also being introduced (for the GAC Honda model, this is the second generation accordingly). Breeze still has an original appearance – the SUV received a different grille, headlights, bumper and tailgate. In addition, the taillights (they also have a different shape) do not have additional vertical sections. The length of the Honda Breeze still exceeds the original CR-V – 4716 vs. 4703mm (in Chinese specs). But the wheelbase of the cars is the same – 2701 mm. For comparison, the dimensions of the previous Breeze: length – 4634 mm, wheelbase – 2661mm.
Inside, the GAC Honda SUV literally copied the CR-V, sharing the same front panel, steering wheel, center tunnel, virtual instrument cluster, climate control unit with washers, and a multimedia system with a separate protruding screen. They even kept the mesh strip that hides the air baffles. The model is also promised a range of Honda Sensing 360 safety systems, including adaptive cruise control, automatic braking systems, lane keeping and more.
In China, both are crossovers Available with five or seven-seater interior (the new American Honda CR-V does not have a three-row version, by the way). At the first stage, the new Honda Breeze will be offered with the old 1.5 petrol turbocharged four-cylinder with a capacity of 193 hp (although now the engine has a different index – L15CK instead of L15BT). The local CR-V has a similar turbocharged engine (however, the index is different again – L15BZ) and is paired with a CVT: Breeze will obviously also be equipped with a CVT.
