Honda will launch the fourth-generation CR-V here in February.
Honda’s next-generation CRV is based on an all-new platform and comes with a blend of both quirky yet modern details. The new car is slightly shorter than the one it replaces, but thanks to some clever interior packaging, it offers a wider and more spacious cabin with more storage spaces. The new CR-V will also come with a five-inch multi-info display screen and a multi-angle rear-view camera.
Just like the current generation CR-V, two engine choices will be on offer – a 2.0-litre petrol and a 185bhp 2.4-litre petrol, mated to a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic gearbox. Both engines have been tweaked for better fuel economy and performance.
But more importantly, Honda will now assemble the new CR-V in India. Considering that the current CR-V is a full import and has made pricing it difficult for the carmaker, the local assembly could translate into a significant reduction in terms of price.
