Honda CR-V S-Plus special edition SUV costs £299 a month

Honda has announced a special edition version of the CR-V compact SUV, the S Plus, which goes on sale on November 1st from £23,500 – or £299 per month on PCP finance.

Based on the S Navi version, the S Plus adds a unique set of ‘aero’ front and rear bumpers which include body-colour trim, plus side running boards and a tailgate spoiler. Choose from three colours: White Orchid pearl, Crystal Black Pearls, Polished Metal Metallic or Passion Red pearl – all are standard.

The S Navi already gets, as its name suggests touchscreen infotainment with Honda Connect Garmin sat nav, plus Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, reversing camera and autonomous emergency city braking.

So in terms of equipment, the S Plus is really just about the styling – until you get to prices. Already, it’s cheaper than the S Navi, which costs from £24,600. But with the added extra features, Honda’s calculated the £23,500 start price of the S Plus 2.0-litre petrol equates to a total £3,000 saving.

The CR-V S Plus 1.6 i-DTEC diesel costs £1,000 more, at £24,500, and both models come only in front-wheel drive guise, and only as six-speed manuals.

The £299 a month finance deal is offered over a three-year period, with an APR rate of 5.9 percent. It requires a 20 percent deposit – £4,711 on the petrol – and the final payment is £10,615. The diesel, on PCP, costs £10 a month more, at £309 a month.

Honda will even add in five years’ free servicing for £599 – and include a ‘My Honda Care’ diagnostics dongle for free, something it reckons is with £255 on its own.

Reminding us that the CR-V is the world’s best-selling SUV, Honda UK MD Dave Hodgetts said: “The S Plus provides customers with approximately £1,500 of features for free, aligning with Honda’s objective of supplying products of the highest quality, at a reasonable price for utmost customer satisfaction.”

And why is Honda offering such good value with the CR-V S Plus? Because in 2018, an all-new CR-V arrives – one that is going to eschew diesel for a high-tech hybrid…
