The NEW-generation Honda CR-V 2020 receives prominent changes over its predecessor. Honda CR-V variants are available in petrol, diesel and diesel options with AWD grades. Honda’s 1.6-litre Earth Dreams diesel engine is a new addition to the carline, whereas the petrol variants use the 2.0-litre unit. Packed with new features and styling elements inside, the Honda CR-V price in India has changed upwardly.





The Honda CR-V exterior has received transformation in terms of size and other styling changes with the addition of new elements. There is a large grille at the front with bold chrome slat. It is flanked by angular headlamps that get LED DRLs. Changes have also been made to the rear end, which now gets L-shaped tail-lamps and chrome garnish. Honda CR-V colours include multiple options.



The new Honda CR-V sits on a 40 mm longer wheelbase and is available in five as well as seven seat layouts. The Honda CR-V features seats with recline function and can be adjusted to set a position. In terms of styling, the Honda CR-V interior gets dual-tone beige and black colour theme with chrome inserts and wood trims infusing premium touch. It benefits from a 7.0-inch touchscreen unit supported by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, among several others.



The Honda CR-V specifications include an all-new 1.6-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged i-DTEC oil burner good for maximum power of 118 bhp at 4,000 rpm against 300 Nm torque at 2,000 rpm. It comes linked to a 9-speed auto box with paddle shifters, and is available in both 2WD and 4WD options. The petrol-powered CR-V gets a 2.0-litre unit, which puts out 152 bhp power at 6,500 rpm against 189 Nm torque at 4,300 rpm. The petrol unit comes paired to a CVT.

As for the Honda CR-V review, it offers a decent performance as well as handling in both petrol and diesel guises, which makes it a viable option in the premium SUV space.

The Honda CR-V mileage for the diesel engine is claimed at 19 km/l for the 2WD version and slightly less at 18.3 km/l for the 4WD version. The petrol-powered CR-V can only return 14.4 km/l.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Honda CR-V



When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    The new CR-V has grown in size, is comfortable and offers more space for its occupants. It has its fair share of negatives like the petrol CVT powertrain isn't for the enthusiasts, a mediocre touch screen system and limited boot space for luggage of five adults.
