New Honda CR-V to offer a 1.6 i-DTEC diesel option – Thailand

Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

It is the first time that Honda is offering diesel power for Thai-spec CR-V.

Headlight Mag reports that the next generation Honda CR-V for Thailand will be optionally available with diesel power for the first time.

The lump under the hood is a 1.6L i-DTEC 4-cyl motor producing 160 hp at 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm at 2000 rpm.

The diesel engine in question is the 1.6L i-DTEC 4-cyl motor producing 160 hp at 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm at 2000 rpm. It is paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox and can be had with an AWD system as an option. The petrol engine lineup could comprise of the 1.5L VTEC Turbo or the familiar 2.4-liter DOHC, direct-injected, naturally aspirated i-VTEC engine, both paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

As it will be largely similar to the model currently sold in the U.S, expect features like signature Honda LED headlights (Touring trim) with wing-shaped LED DRLs, Honda-first Active Shutter Grille to lower aerodynamic drag, new aluminum-forged alloy wheels, narrower A-pillars, Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate and plenty of chrome garnish.

The latest Honda CR-V will make its Thai debut at the 2017 Bangkok International Motor Show next month. Some parts of the model built in Thailand will also be exported to the Indian market where it is expected to launch later this year.
