India-bound Honda CR-V facelift – Motorshow Focus


Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

Now exudes a more aggressive and bold look.

The Honda CR-V facelift has been showcased at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The updated CR-V is expected to launch in India this year.

The face gets the Solid Face design and the bumpers have been revised too.

On the outside, the face gets the ‘Solid Wing Face’ grille flanked by redesigned halogen headlights with angular LED DRLs. A re-profiled front bumper is also seen with chrome housings for the foglamps. The lateral view reveals 18-inch five-spoke alloys with aero design, prominent wheel arches, distinct shoulder line and roof rails. Moving to the rear, the extended taillights merge with the roof-mounted spoiler at the top which is also embedded with an LED brake light. The tailgate has also been redesigned and a chrome applique now connects the taillights.

The interior does not get as extensively modified as the exterior. Though, it gets features like an updated 7-inch touchscreen for the Honda Connect infotainment system, three-angle reverse parking camera, lane-assist system and 8-way electrically-adjustable driver’s seat.

Changes to the interior are not as extensive as the exterior.

In European markets the CR-V facelift comes with a choice of one petrol and diesel engine. These are a 2.0-liter i-VTEC inline four petrol producing 155 PS and 192 Nm of torque, with the other being a 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel unit churning out 160 PS and 350 Nm of peak torque. Gearbox options vary between a 6-speed manual, 5-speed automatic and also a 9-speed automatic – which is only for the top-end diesel trim. The SUV can be optioned in either two- or four-wheel drive configuration as well.
