In a reflection of this, Honda recently announced that it would be dropping the diesel CR-V from its range, leaving just a petrol version and this – the new CR-V Hybrid. The manufacturer claims that it should return the same economy as the recently ditched model while improving low-speed emissions, thanks to the introduction of those electric motors.

First drive: Citroen’s C5 Aircross is a unique offering in the SUV class
