Default Re: Rumour: Honda to bring new-gen CR-V to India in 2018

The next-gen 2018 CR-V could be launched in India by mid-2018, according to ACI.

The all-new CR-V will be offered with a 7-seater layout and a 1.6L twin-turbocharged diesel engine option which will produce 158HP and 350Nm of torque. When launched, it will take on the likes of the Hyundai Tucson and the Volkswagen Tiguan in the Rs 22 - 28 lakhs segment.

The 2018 CR-V measures 4,571mm in length, 1,885mm in height and 1,667mm in width and gets a wheelbase of 2,662mm, making it longer and wider (though shorter in height) than the current car. The wheelbase is also more than the current car, which should translate to better cabin space. It weighs in at 1,613kg for the diesel auto.

The automatic variant gets a unique push-button selector placed in the centre console. Above it are air con controls and a floating, borderless touchscreen for the infotainment system. The greatest change in the cabin will have to be the third row of seats. While likely to be slightly cramped, the third row does get reclining seatbacks and dedicated air con vents. The fifth-gen CR-V also comes with a powered tailgate that can be programmed to avoid collision with your garage roof. Additionally, it will get features like remote engine start, dual-zone climate control, heated wing mirrors, and an electric parking brake, along with equipment such as USB charging ports for the second row, a four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat.

A 1.6-litre twin-turbo unit, the CR-V’s diesel engine will output 158hp at 4,000rpm and 350Nm at 2,000rpm. The engine will be paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox from ZF, and power will be sent to the front wheels as standard (all-wheel drive will be optional). The CR-V will also get a 2.4-litre petrol engine with a power output of 190hp, also mated to an automatic gearbox.
