Honda CR-V summary

In 2003, Honda introduced its premium offering in the SUV segment with CR-V in India. It was the second-generation vehicle of the line. The carmaker subsequently launched the third, fourth, and fifth-generation versions. The car was regularly facelifted, adding features very specific to CR-V. This was to make sure that the SUV stayed ahead of its rivals at all times.

CR-V was Honda’s confident bet in the SUV segment, and its sales numbers were pretty steady. However, the closure of the Delhi plant forced the South Korean manufacturer to pull back CR-V from the Indian market. The model was discontinued in 2020. In the used car market, though, CR-V is turning out to be a solid choice.

The fifth-generation CR-V is available in three engines – a 2WD petrol automatic (CVT) and two diesel engines (9AT AWD and 9AT 2WD). With the presence of real-time AWD, the SUV doesn’t feel fragile against bumps. Furthermore, it has adequate ground clearance to tackle speed-breakers while cruising through city traffic.

In a first, Honda fixed CR-V with a 1.6L DOHC i-DTEC diesel turbo engine, whipping up a power output of 120 bhp and 300 Nm torque, coupled with an automatic transmission of 9 speed. Both the engines lag the rivals in terms of power. But then, Honda is more about stability and comfort.

The fuel efficiency of the vehicle at 19.5 kmpl for the diesel variant and 14.4 kmpl for petrol ones. In terms of mileage, CR-V surpasses its rivals by a fair degree.

Honda CR-V is a must-have SUV to flaunt style, luxury, and magnificence. It was designed to make head turns. The front profile is splashed with a sharp and heavy chrome grille and two complementing headlights, giving the car a very aggressive and dynamic look, complete with a winged LED DRL. Honda craftily balanced the urban and sporty design with chrome-lined windows. The 18-inch alloy wheels are an absolute stunner. The rear is flanked by two L-shaped taillights, making for a formidable picture.

The interior of the CR-V is very classy; its supreme quality leather upholstery and classic dashboard accents add to its richness. The SUV is equipped with trendy features such as a 7-inch infotainment setup compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 8 speakers, and panoramic sunroofs.

Honda is popular among Indian families because of its generous cabin. Space-optimised and abundant legroom makes CR-V the roomiest SUV. There is an option of two seats in the third row in the diesel variant. The AC setup is available in the second and third rows. The manufacturer has clearly gone to lengths to give its customers a quality and comfortable ride.

The vehicle is secured with six airbags, an anti-lock braking system, a driver attention monitor, and a multi-angle rearview camera. CR-V is also fixed with Honda’s trademark LaneWatch camera setup that assists drivers with blind spots.

Prices start from ?25.49 lakhs for petrol variants and go up to ?28.27 lakh. The diesel version ranges between ?30.67 lakh - ?32.77 lakh. The special edition CR-V is priced at ?29.50 lakhs. Customers are spoiled for choices as CR-V comes in five exciting colour variants: Radiant Red, Golden Brown, Lunar Silver, White Orchid Pearl, and Modern Steel.

Rivals of this car include the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavor, Tata Harrier, and Volkswagen Tiguan.

Honda CR-V PRO’s & CON’s

  • Things We Like
  • Things we don’t like

Honda is built for luxury and it unabashedly shows it off. From sleek exterior design to dual-tone, feature-rich interiors, it brims of opulence.

CR-V comes with a promise of solid performance and it delivers the segment-best ride quality backed by its proven engine.

It has the industry-best fuel efficiency.

Both petrol and diesel variants come with automatic transmission.

Its cabin is really spacious with an arrangement to add two more seats in the third row.

Coming to safety features, Honda hasn’t compromised one bit, with six airbags, blind-spot camera setup, etc.



CR-V is one of the first entries in India’s SUV landscape. It has been constantly compared against its rivals such as Fortuner and Endeavor. Honda did a fantastic job of keeping its SUV brand updated with regular facelifts. This made sure that CR-V stayed ahead of its competitors until Honda pulled the plug on it. CR-V has always eased past its rivals on multiple fronts, barring a few such as power output. CR-V could easily be rated as one of the top three SUVs.

The 5-seater SUV is perfect for a mid-size family. Its spacious cabin and generous legroom make the ride a buttery experience. The diesel variant comes with +2 seating option, which is the best option for small children. CR-V fixed multiple charging ports to take care of every device within the car.

The pricing of this premium SUV is pretty competitive. With the segment-best mileage and easy maintenance, CR-V won’t burn holes in pockets. It is ideal for both maneuvering through the heavy traffic for the daily commute or for long-distance vacations.

Honda’s stubborn decision to stick to its proven engines instead of industry-famous turbo engines tells you that CR-V was designed for performance. Hence, it is the most obvious choice for a family ride. With such mindfully added safety features, CR-V is built for a safe riding experience.

It is really unfortunate that such a well-performing car had to be pulled off the market. We really hope that Honda finds a way to re-introduce the model in the market, but with better specs.

If comfort, luxury, and stability are on the top of your must’ve listed, then CR-V is the SUV to pick from the market.
