New Honda CR-V spied

New Delhi: The next-generation Honda CR-V has been spied testing in the Mojave desert in the United States, probably for hot-weather testing. The company is expected to reveal the crossover/SUV early next year, with sales commencing in the US in mid-2017. In India, Honda didn’t even launch the mid-life update of the current-gen CR-V, which went on sale internationally last year. We expect the next-gen CR-V to enter India in 2018 or maybe even later.
The 2018 CR-V is likely to feature an engine from Honda’s first-ever turbo petrol clan. The motor we are talking about – the 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo – debuted with the tenth-generation Civic, and produces close to 176PS of power and 219Nm of max torque. Besides the new 1.5-litre turbo, the CR-V is also expected to continue the current set of powertrain options, including the 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel in European countries (expected in India).

The new CR-V will have features and styling cues from the latest Hondas – the Civic and the facelifted ninth-generation Honda Accord to be specific (both India-bound). The elements that are being borrowed are ones such as the all-LED headlights and tail lamps, the latest-generation HondaLink infotainment system, and others.Speaking of the platform, the next-gen CR-V will have the Civic’s new lightweight modular chassis, which will shed its weight considerably compared to the current version.
