Honda has launched the all-new CR-V at a starting price of Rs 28.15 lakh (ex showroom price) and has been priced upwards to Rs 32.75 lakh (Diesel AWD). The vehicle comes with a 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel unit that churns out 120 bhp of max power and 300 Nm of torque. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission box. There is also a 2-litre petrol unit that belts out 154 hp of max power and 192 Nm of max torque. The diesel variant assures a fuel efficiency – 19.5kmpl for 2WD, 18.3kmpl for AWD. The petrol only gets a front-wheel drive with fuel efficiency of 14.4kmpl.
The CR-V gets a thick chrome bar up front – coupled with LED head lights and LED fog lamps on either side. The tail too features LED lights and generous additions of chrome. The tyre size has also been increased. On the inside, the vehicle comes with an upgrade while a seven-inch TFT screen – developed by Garmin – helps the CR-V stay true to what rivals offer as standard. On the safety front, the new CR-V gets six airbags, Hill Start Assist, Rear Camera with dynamic guidelines, Vehicle Stability Assist, Agile Handling Assist, ABS with EBD, Electronic Parking Brake and – in a first – a Lane Watch which would help in reducing blind spots.
