The fourth generation CR-V has been finally launched in India. The new CR-V will be assembled in India at HCIL’s plant in Greater Noida and has a starting price of Rs. 19.95 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi, for the 2.0 litre manual transmission variant.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Hironori Kanayama, President & CEO, Honda Cars India Ltd., said “With the launch of the fourth generation CR-V, we once again affirm our commitment to bring the latest from the global Honda portfolio to our customers in India. It is a matter of great pride for us at HCIL to assemble the CR-V in India for the first time.” He also added, “The all new CR-V offers driving comfort and efficiency of a sedan, and the confident and powerful stance of an SUV and will appeal to both SUV and premium sedan buyers.”
As we’d mentioned earlier the CR-V gets two engine options, the 2.0 litre and the 2.4 litre petrol. The 2.0 L engine is good for a maximum output of 156PS@6500pm, which Honda says is 13PS more than the last generation model and 190Nm of torque @4300rpm. The 2.4L engine makes 190 PS @ 7000 rpm, again 29PS more than the outgoing model and 226 Nm of torque @ 4400 rpm.
The 2.0L engine can be had with the six speed manual and the five speed auto box while the 2.4 L comes only with the 5 speed auto box. The 2.4L engine option variant with the auto box also gets Honda’s REALTIME 4WD.
At 4545 mm long, 1820 mm wide, 1685 mm tall and a wheelbase of 2620 mm, the CR-V should be definitely spacious. The wraparound projector headlamps get a washer. The 10 spoke 17 inch alloys look fantastic as do the Dual Tone Sienna Beige Interiors with leather upholstery.
The All New CR-V will be available in 5 colors : Carnelian Red Pearl, Sparkling Brown Metallic, Urban Titanium Metallic, Alabaster Silver Metallic and Taffeta White.
Honda is also offering two new accessory packages : Elegance and Inspire.
