Honda's premium SUV, the CR-V has gone through a lot of change with the fourth generation. On sale in India since 2003, Honda has managed to sell 14,000 units of the SUV to date and it hopes to continue making an impact on the small, premium petrol SUV market.
First things first, the CR-V is now assembled in India and that should bring down the price considerably. The bad news is, you don't still get a diesel option. On offer are the same 2.0 litre and 2.4-litre, four-cylinder i-VTEC petrols. The former comes with a 6-speed manual and 5-speed auto option while the latter is a 5-speed auto only with paddle shifters. There is quite some power jump too; the 2.0 now produces 155 bhp of peak power, up from 143 bhp, while the 2.4 now churns out 188 bhp, up from the 166 earlier. Fuel economy is now 13.7 kpl for the 2.0 and 12 kpl for the 2.4, all ARAI.
