      Honda Cars India Limited launched the 4thgeneration Honda CR-Vin India. The all new CR-V will be assembled in Indiafor the first time at HCIL's manufacturing facility in Greater Noida, UP.

      Long established as the benchmark vehicle in its class in terms of quality, refinement and popularity, the all new Honda CR-V offers more dynamic and sophisticated appearance while contributing to higher fuel efficiency and boasts of amazing interior versatility.

      Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Hironori Kanayama, President & CEO, Honda Cars India Ltd., said “With the launch of the fourth generation CR-V, we once again affirm our commitment to bring the latest from the global Honda portfolio to our customers in India. It is a matter of great pride for us at HCIL to assemble the CR-V in India for the first time.” He also added, “The all new CR-V offers driving comfort and efficiency of a sedan, and the confident and powerful stance of an SUV and will appeal to both SUV and premium sedan buyers.”

      The All New CR-V will be available in two engine options, the lightweight and fuel efficient 2.0L SOHC i-VTEC engine with 2WD and the more powerful 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC engine with Honda’s original REALTIMETM 4WD.

      Improvements to the All New CR-V’s 2.0L engine offers max power output of 156PS@6500pm (+13PS as compared to outgoing model) and 190Nm of torque @4300rpm. Similarly, the 2.4L engine contributes to max power of 190 PS @ 7000 rpm (+29PS as compared to outgoing model) and 226 Nm of torque @ 4400 rpm. Both 2.0L and 2.4L engines realize impressive fuel efficiency of 13.7 km/l and 12 km/l respectively as per test results of Rule 115 of CMVR.

      The all new CR-V comes with a sophisticated6 speed Manual Transmission(in 2.0L variant) and a seamless5 speed Automatic Transmission (in both 2.0L and 2.4L variants) delivering the perfect balance of driving performance and fuel economy. The conveniently placed Cruise Control buttons on the steering wheel allows the driver to cruise at the desired speed with one touch operation.

      The 2.4L variant is available with Honda’s original Real TimeTM4-wheel drive (4WD) systemthat supplies FWD (front wheel drive) operation in ordinary conditions and switches to 4WD on demand, depending on varied driving conditions. The Paddle Shift offered on 2.4L version lets the driver enjoy the manual control of the 5 speed Automatic Transmission in a fun to drive manner.

      The 4th Generation CR-V has completely redesigned exterior and the body design is more aerodynamically efficient due to many refinements.The new model takes on a more aggressive SUV stance with deeper sculpting of the body lines and a bolder front fascia, highlighted by a premium sporty chrome grille and sleek, wrap around HID projector headlamps with washer. The aerodynamic design is carried to the rear and the rear glass has been sculpted to look as wide as possible. The vertical rear combination lamp comes with a new theme for the 4th Generation CR-V with a more three-dimensional style that augments the design and aerodynamics of the vehicle. The all new CR-V sports a shark fin antenna that further accentuates the aero form. The new large 10-spoke 17 – inch alloy wheels and bold fender flares emphasize the vehicle’s dynamic presence and capability.

      The interior of the all-new Honda CR-V aims to redefine the segment with a sedan-like driving comfort, reduced noise levels, a host of new and class leading features, convenient integration with personal technology, versatile cargo storage and high-quality materials. At 4545 mm long, 1820 mm wide, 1685 mm tall and with a wheelbase at 2620 mm, the new CR-V offers a highly efficient proportion of space which is in line with Honda’s Man Maximum, Machine Minimum concept.

      The new model offers a more spacious interior layout. The all new premium Dual Tone SiennaBeige Interiorswith leather upholsterymake the inside of Honda CR-V comforting and a class apart. One of the most significant new interior features in the CR-V is the One Motion Dive Down Rear Seats which helps in increasing the cargo area in the car and is much more convenient than the traditional manual folding seats. Each side of the rear seat can automatically fold full flat into the front of the cargo area using one of the small levers located near the tailgate or a pull-strap positioned on the rear seat side.

      Beyond its new versatile packaging, the CR-V demonstrates new attention to the in-vehicle experience, with sophisticated instrumentation and a standard full-color, 5-inch “intelligent” Multi-Information Display (i-MID)that offers a smart interface via fingertip controls on the steering wheel communicating Fuel Consumption, providing Audio/ HFT* (in 2.4L AVN grade) status display and rear camera display during parking. One can also customize the screen to set their favourite wallpaper. The intelligent AVN system with 6.1” touch screen offered in 2.4L (AVN) variant features turn by turn Navigation, DVD/ CD player, iPOD®, USB, Blue Tooth®/ Hands-free Telephone connectivity and a rear camera display.

      The new CR-V comes with the introduction of a new ECON button which increases the potential for drivers to improve the vehicle’s fuel efficiency when the system is activated by adjusting the performance of the engine, transmission, air conditioning system and cruise control. With a view to encourage fuel efficient driving, the CR-V’s Eco Assist™ systemhas a built-in Ambient meter that changes colour in response to driving style. The illuminated arcs are located in the upper instrument panel on either side of the speedometer that show if the vehicle is being driven in an efficient style. The Green light means a more efficient driving style while the white color signifies inefficient driving.

      The all new CR-V further reinstates Honda’s approach to safety. Every CR-V incorporates as standard equipment VSA–Vehicle Stability Assist system; an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with EBD and Brake Assist; Dual Front SRS Air Bags, Side-curtain airbags and front-side airbags with a passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure which helps making the vehicle highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal crash; G-CON technology; and a Whiplash mitigation front seat design that can help reduce the severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision. The newly introducedsophisticated Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) system works with the standard VSA and Electric Power Steering to detect instability in slippery road conditions both during cornering and under braking and automatically initiates steering inputs that prompt the driver to steer in the correct direction. This advanced new technology supports the driver's action in operating the vehicle more safely and comfortably. All the AT variants are equipped with a Hill Start Assist (HSA) which prevents the vehicle from rolling on inclines when the driver switches from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal while the vehicle is stopped on a hill. Hill Start Assist automatically activates when the vehicle senses a certain incline and is fully stopped in any forward or reverse gear.

      The All New CR-Vs chassis is designed to maximize driving enjoyment, passenger comfort and safety with its front MacPherson Strut suspension and Double Wishbone Rear suspension.

      The All New CR-V will be available in 5 colors – Carnelian Red Pearl, Sparkling Brown Metallic, Urban Titanium Metallic, Alabaster Silver Metallic and Taffeta White.Two new accessory packages Elegance and Inspire would be offered in the All New CR-V.

      The Honda CR-V comes with Honda Care2+2 year warranty(2 yr standard warranty for 40,000 km + 2 year extended warranty for 80,000 km whichever is earlier) and 4 yearsroadside assistance as standard value for all new CR-V buyers.

      Bookings for the All New CR-V will start immediately at the company’s vast distribution network of 141 facilities in 88 cities spread across the country.

      That's brilliant strategy by Honda. At a time where the highly successful Civic is selling in 2 digit numbers and they had to phase it out, which genius came up with the plan of launching a fugly CRV with a petrol engine?

      When they are calling it SUV, then it should be capable enough to handle the terrains meant for SUVs. Ok, not calling it SUV, but still people expect big torque delivery from such big vehicles. Let's compare the both CRV engines with existing SUVs:

      Pajero Sports:
      178ps @4000
      400nm @2000

      Toyota Fortuner:
      171 PS @3600 rpm
      343 Nm @1400rpm

      XUV 5oo:
      140ps @3750
      330nm @1600

      140ps 4200
      320nm @1750

      Outlander (Petrol)
      170ps @6000
      226nm @4100

      Other then the specs, fuel economy is also in question. Though one of my know person told me that he was getting FE of 10-11 kmpl which I would say good considering the size of the vehicle. But still diesel FE is always better over the petrol.

      Let's wait and see how this new CR-V does in the market.

      The issue is with the type of fuel: diesel engine would produce more torque. And peak power at lower rpm vis-a-vis petrol engine. Hence the difference. CRV is comparable with Outlander though.

      Concept of petrol SUV looks bit of out of sync - atleast to me. CRV is a capable urban vehicle and can be considered as a alternative to Superb etc. Its high ground clearance and SUV pretensions would come in handy in tackling the obstacles thrown by our normal road (potholes and water logging).

      With 22 rupee difference between petrol & diesel, how many would consider a petrol SUV is a serious question. Only silver lining is that this vehicle is claimed to be more efficient than outgoing models. If it can offer > 10 kmpl in real world traffic condition, then there is some hope. Else it would turn out to be all show and no go.

      Yeah obviously, thats why diesel SUVs are usually popular because they offer better torque.

      I think it won't be that serious after a year as diesel price has started growing on regular basis. Main issue is if a buyer is buying such a big vehicle for the purpose of what these vehicles meant for, then CR-V goes on back-foot.

      But I think the vehicles like CR-V don't target that segment. These type of vehicles target those buyers who are look for car-like ride quality in a bigger vehicle having much higher ground clearance.

      But still none of the petrol SUV/Crossover could succeed in India so far over the other direct diesel competitor.

      See the fate of Outlander, that is much better package in the petrol segment IMO.

      And quite a looker as well. Only area where CRV can comprehensively trump Outlander is the after sale service. Lets see how market responds. A half century should be quite an achievement for Honda - i guess.
