Based on spyshots, Indian Autos Blog’s artist, Shoeb Kalania has created a digital sketch of the rear of the 2017 Honda CR-V, which is expected to debut later in the year or in early-2017.

With added third row seating, the wheelbase of the 2017 CR-V is expected to grow by 80 mm.

Though the silhouette looks similar to the current fourth-generation CR-V, the taillight design is now of an L-shape, and the taillights themselves are connected via a chrome strip. In a recent interaction with Indian Autos Blog, Mr. Atsushi Arisaka, Chief Engineer for the Honda BR-V development, explained how the brand perceives connected taillights as a stylish design feature (the Honda BR-V’s taillights are connected too).

So far, Honda has confirmed that the 2016 Civic will lend its platform for the next generation CR-V. A recent report stated that the wheelbase of the SUV will grow by 80 mm to accommodate a third row of seats, a first on the CR-V.

The new CR-V will be powered by VTEC Turbo engines and the i-DTEC diesel engine.

Under the hood, the 2017 Honda CR-V is expected to be powered by the downsized VTEC Turbo 1.5-liter unit, and the 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo is also a good possibility for the top-end variant with standard 4WD. The more powerful engine could also serve well for customers who seek increased towing capabilities from the SUV.

As for its Indian launch, expect the new CR-V to arrive in the country within 12 months of its global debut. A report states that Honda Cars India will increase localization levels on the CR-V by up to 65 percent, indicating that prices would be competitive. A diesel option can’t be ruled out for the Indian market either despite the negative diesel sentiment in the country.
