In an attempt to boost fledgling sales, Honda has updated the top-of-the-line CR-V in India with a few additional features. So if diesel doesn’t rock your boat and the Fortuner comes across as too common, the Honda CR-V is now worth taking a look at, considering plummeting petrol prices, which they say will drop further. The top-end Honda CR-V now gets keyless entry, an engine start/stop switch, a new 7″ touchscreen multimedia system, SIRI compatible voice recognition, 6 speakers, bluetooth and video playback via HDMI.
Other new features include tail pipe finishers, multi angle view for the rear camera, auto dimming feature on the internal RVM, chrome licked internal door handles and a tonneau cover that is available across all models. There is still no diesel option available and the CR-V continues to be propelled by a 190 PS, 2.4-litre, 4-cylinder, i-VTEC engine which is mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox that distributes power across all four wheels. The soft roader can also be bought with a 2.0-liter, 156 PS, petrol engine with a 5-speed auto or a 6-speed manual gearbox that only drives two wheels.
