Honda has revealed its fifth generation CR-V at the ongoing Delhi Auto Expo. The SUV gets a new 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine for the first time in the country. The other big additions to the CR-V are an extra pair of seats! Yes, it’s a seven-seat SUV now. Its price is likely to take a hike over its predecessor, which is priced between Rs 21.54 lakh and Rs 26.36 lakh (ex-showroom) and is expected to fall in the bracket of Rs 26-32 lakh.

The 2.4-litre petrol motor, which pumps out 188PS of max power and 226Nm of peak torque, will be carried forward from its predecessor. All-wheel-drive (AWD) will be offered as optional. Transmission duties for both engines will be handled by a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed ZF automatic gearbox.

The new Honda CR-V’s increased wheelbase helps accommodate the third row. Even the width has improved over the current version, which should translate into a roomier cabin. The dip in height is expected to better its handling and stability on the road.

It gets a TFT LCD instrument cluster and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display which supports navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with voice commands. Moreover, it comes with 4-way power adjustable front seats, one-touch power moonroof and dual-zone climate control.
