Based on dealer-level sources, and Honda Cars India’s website, the update is only for the top-end CR-V 2.4-liter AT which comes with AWD as standard. The SUV is now given a Smart Entry system with a request button on the front door handle, and a City-like engine starter button.

The infotainment system is a new 7-inch touchscreen unit with a 6-speaker audio system. It gets Siri eyes-free voice-recognition, HDMI video compatibility and Bluetooth compatibility, but misses out on navigation. The updated CR-V also gets a tonneau cover as standard.
