Honda CR-V

The CR-V is a constant class leader representing the SUV C segment. Its manageable size, versatility, and do-anything nature make it perfectly suited to be whatever you want it to be, from a suburban task-runner to a practical family vehicle.  

First introduced in 1995, the first-generation Honda CR-V helped establish a new breed of compact sport utility vehicle with car-like ride and handling thanks to its unibody construction, four-wheel independent suspension, and long wheelbase. From 1995 to the current generation, it has evolved in a multitude of ways, always keeping in mind the wants and needs of the consumer. You can see the unmistakable lines that mark this car out as an evolution of the iconic CR-V silhouette.  

The All-New CR-V is set to be the SUV for all occasions and strives to be the vehicle to be ‘As Different as You Are’. For this year, the car has been completely reformed to feature all-new rugged and sophisticated design, sleek roofline and long hood to create a sportier profile, distinctive grille design, signature vertical LED taillights, standard Honda Sensing® system with 360 multi-view camera, 7 Inch TFT meter screen and 9 Inch Display Audio with wireless CarPlay and Android Auto and a Qi-compatible wireless charger. In addition, the new CR-V also features a panoramic sunroof, card key and power Tailgate, available in the EX and Touring.  

As a first, the new CR-V has a 1.5L VTEC® Turbo Engine, a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, mated to an advanced CVT to deliver smooth, seamless power. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) has step shift programming, that mimics gears shift just like a conventional automatic, providing a sportier drive feel. The CVT also provides significant drivability and performance improvements thanks to optimization of Torque on Demand control, early downshift during braking, and improved refinements to the Honda G shift control. At full throttle. In terms of performance numbers, the CR-V produces 190 HP @6000 RPM and an impressive torque of 243 Nm@ at a very low 1700-5000RPM. The CR-V is equipped with two drive modes allowing the driver to select ECON to save fuel or Normal, for everyday driving.  

The Honda CR-V as a first in this region is equipped with Honda SensingTM suite of active safety and driver assistive technologies in all grades that uses a new single-camera system which detects a wider view of the road ahead for enhanced recognition capability. Combined with software advances and a new, more powerful processor, the system is also capable of more quickly and accurately identifying other vehicles and make driving both easier and safer.  

The safety features include the collision mitigation braking system (CMBS) design to detect and alert the driver of a potential collision. Additionally, an adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow allowing the vehicle to adjust its speed automatically for a safe and comfortable journey. The lane keeping assist system (LKAS) helps to keep vehicles in the middle of a detected lane. The road departure mitigation system (RDM) which alerts driver when it detects the vehicle may have unintentionally deviated from its lane. Lastly, a lane departure warning which sends a visual alert and audible sound if the car moves out of its lane without the indicator being activated.  

The CR-V is available in four grades which are the DX, LX, EX and Touring. It features seven exterior colours which are Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Coffee Cherry Red Metallic, Brilliant Sporty Blue, Canyon River Blue Metallic, Meteoroid Gray Metallic and Crystal Black Pearl. It also features two interior colours with fabric and one with leather including Grayge Fabric, Natural Black Fabric and Grayge Leather.
