Honda Launches CR-V Special Edition In Thailand — Will India Be Next?

Written By:

The fifth-generation Honda CR-V is getting ready to be launched later this year or probably early 2017. Now, the Japanese automaker has launched the special edition of Honda CR-V in Thailand with subtle changes.

The new special edition CR-V receives a new chrome front grille, automatic HID front lights, sportier front, and rear bumpers, restyled 18-inch wheels and roof-mounted rear spoiler. Honda has also added a safety feature of blind spot recognition.

Honda has not launched a facelifted version of the CR-V, but a special edition of the model which sports the 2.0-litre engine with four-wheel drive. The 153bhp petrol mill is paired to a five-speed automatic gearbox and comes with a choice of either a beige or the metallic interior colours.

As for the fifth-generation, Honda CR-V will be upmarket and will be positioned higher than the HR-V. Since the fifth-generation CR-V is expected to be in the line of the tenth-generation Civic, in all likelihood it could be seen with the new 1.5-litre petrol turbo engine.

Also, the option of a hybrid is expected to be seen in the CR-V's fifth-generation. India could benefit with the hybrid model as the country is encouraging the use of electric and hybrid versions.
