Overview

The CR-V came in its foruth generation avatar in India. In India it was the second CR-V to be sold and has been a decent success. Viewing head on, you can’t help but get impressed by the muscular look of the car. There is a double front grille with the projector headlamps merging into the flowing bonnet. The car has a very urban look with swooping windows, seven-spoke alloy wheels and a matte black side cladding for the front and rear bumper. The CR-V surely turns quite a few heads. Inside, the CR-V is well designed with ample space and quality touches. Once seated on the plush leather seat, you instantly find yourself comfortably placed to easily access all the controls.

The speedometer console displays a wealth of information on the multi-info LCD display. The placement of the gear lever below the centre console means that a lot space is freed up between the driver and co-driver. Further, a central console with cup holders and a storage box for CDs as well as a dedicated glass holder for the rear passengers make sure long drives are a joyful affair. The CR-V is available with two petrol engines- a 2.0 litre and a 2.4 litre unit. The 2.4 litre petrol unt makes 161 bhp while the 2.0 litre unit makes 143 bhp. The 2.4 is smooth and fast and oodles of power and torque, the smaller 2.0 is no slow coach either as it quite quick. The manula gearbox is more fun though the 5-speed automatic is smooth too. The 2.0 litre will give 8 kmpl while the 2.4 litre will give 7 kmpl. It goes wuthout saying that the manual transmission is more frugal than the automatic unit. 

Sudden directional changes in traffic and on the highway don’t rattle it. As the speed increases, the car’s ability to tackle anything that our highways have to offer is stupendous. With a real time all-wheel drive which transfers the power to all wheels only when required, the CR-V can do fairly well off the road as well. Safety is top notch on both vehicles with standard airbags and ABS with EBD though the CR-V has brake assist as well. The CR-V is priced from 22.6 lakhs to 24.9 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi. For a detailed analysis read below.
