Honda CR V is a SUV which is one of my favourites and it is in the list of cars which I would love to be driven in. The spacious interiors of the Honda CR V gives you enough space to play golf inside it! And it is luxurious as well and of course, powerful too. These were the features which I liked about the Honda CR V.
Now, Honda has brought the new CR V which is just fantastic, again. It is said that the first impression is the last impression and what a first impression this huge SUV gives you is mesmerising! It looks big! And it is big! The new design of the Honda CR V has made me desire it more. It looks completely astonishing! It is totally different from all the SUVs currently cruising on the Indian roads. Its new sleek design is more futuristic. The new big stretched headlamps is a great replacement for the old small ones. The new front grille with chrome finishing and the Honda badge in the centre will scare the little hatch-ies (hatch backs). The huge bumper is so fashionably designed that it looks fantastic and does its job very well. It also features bright fog lamps to help you drive through tough roads. Phew! I could just keep babbling about it all day long!
The Honda CR V is available in two (petrol) engine options: 2.0 L and 2.4 L. The former is capable to generate a max power of 153 bhp at 6500 rpm and 190 Nm of peak torque at 4300 rpm while the latter gives out 187 bhp of max power at 7000 rpm and produces a massive pulling torque of 226 Nm at 4400 rpm. Both the engines are i-VTEC petrol engines of Honda. There is an option of automatic transmission to choose in the 2.0 L while the 2.4 L comes with the same as standard. Also, the 2.0 L variant is available in 2WD option only whereas the 2.4 L variant powers all the four wheels of this SUV.
The interiors of the Honda CR V is as amazing as the exteriors. In fact, you would get confused whether to watch it from the outside and praise its looks or to sit inside the opulent cabin and feel the luxury. The seats are extremely comfortable and the quality of materials used is top notch. The steering has a nice feel and has mounted illuminated controls. The powerful dual climate control system works wonders in all weather conditions. It provides a very soft and smooth ride of a sedan with the benefits of a SUV.
The Honda CR V is available at the price range of Rs 20.6 lacs to Rs 27 lacs (ex showroom New Delhi) which is a large sum of money. There are cars available of competitors like the Merc A Class & BMW 1 series in this range and this could be the strongest negative point of the CR V.
