Honda drives in the new CR-V

Auto Today - - Update! -

THE FIFTH gen­er­a­tion Honda CR-V was launched in In­dia at a price of Rs 28.15 lakh, while the diesel 2WD model is priced at Rs 30.65 lakh and the fully loaded diesel vari­ant costs Rs 32.75 lakh (all prices ex-show­room). This is the first time that the CR-V gets a diesel en­gine along with a 7-seater lay­out. The CR-V boasts of a new de­sign and styling but re­tains fa­mil­ial el­e­ments. The SUV now gets splashes of chrome all across along with a new grille and sharp LED head­lamps. The rear gets an­gu­lar tail lamps along with a new bumper and boot as well. Power is de­rived from an all-new 1.6-litre diesel en­gine which makes about 118bhp and 300Nm, mated to a new 9-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. The petrol is a 2.0-litre unit that makes 151bhp and 189Nm, cou­pled to a CVT gear­box. The diesel en­gine model will have all-wheel drive as an op­tion but the petrol en­gine model will only have front wheel drive.
