Honda CR-V Facelift Launched As A Special Edition At Rs 29.50 Lakh
The Honda CR-V is a petrol-auto only SUV that was previously available in a single variant
The Special Edition CR-V continues to use the same 2.0-litre petrol engine in a front-wheel-drive configuration.
It makes 154PS and 189Nm and can be had with a CVT only.
New feature additions include front parking sensors, auto-fold ORVMs, a power-adjustable passenger seat, and a powered tailgate.
Continues to offer features such as a panoramic sunroof, digital instrument cluster, 7-inch touchscreen and more.
Special edition commands a premium of Rs 1.23 lakh over the regular CR-V.
Honda has launched the facelifted CR-V as a special edition priced at Rs 29.50 lakh (ex-showroom India). It sits on top of the standalone variant the CR-V is offered in. The CR-V Special Edition packs in some feature as well as aesthetic updates. It continues to be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine that makes 154PS and 189Nm. A CVT is still the only transmission option.
The facelifted CR-V now features a redesigned front and rear bumper, a new front grille that makes use of less chrome, and new 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. These revisions are enough to give the facelifted CR-V a slightly fresher look for the next couple of years.
The CR-V Special Edition gets active cornering lights, front parking sensors, 4-way power-adjustable passenger seat, a hands-free powered tailgate, and auto-folding ORVMs. All of these are not available in the standard model and add to the practical quotient of the CR-V. Honda is also offering a special edition kit with the CR-V which adds cosmetic bits to the running board, a garnish for the door mirror, and step illumination.
It continues to come with LED headlamps, LED fog lamps, a huge panoramic sunroof, a powered driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control, ambient lighting, a digital instrument cluster, driver attention monitor, reverse parking camera, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a lane watch camera, and remote engine start.
Safety is taken care of by six airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat anchors, vehicle stability assist, agile handling assist, hill launch assist and auto hold.
The standard CR-V retails at Rs 28.27 lakh (ex-showroom India) and the special edition commands a Rs 1.23 lakh premium over it. The added cost doesn’t really add much to the SUV in terms of value. The CR-V Special Edition is likely to be a limited run model and these design updates are likely to trickle down to the standard model as well. It continues to rival the Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, and now even the MG Gloster.
